Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 100 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 cup 100 grams all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 stick 50 grams butter
  • 1 egg
  • 60 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Coating:

  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 cup 8 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk all of the ingredients until well combined. The batter will be smooth and thin.

If using a cake pop maker:

  • Grease the cake pop maker and preheat it then bake the cake pops until golden (fill the half all the way through). To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake pop and it should come out clean.

If using a mini muffin pan:

  • Lightly grease the muffin pan, and bake the mini muffins at 180c for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a muffin.

To coat:

  • Take 2 bowls. Put the melted butter in one bowl, and mix the sugar with the cinnamon in the other one.
    Take each cake pop, put it in the butter first and coat it from all sides, then transfer to the sugar cinnamon bowl and coat evenly from all sides.
