cake pop on a stickRecipe will make about 60 cake balls or pops (or 12 regular muffins in a tin or double to make a four tier birthday cake)

Ingredients

170g gluten free flour

2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

110g sugar

170g spread (olive or dairy free etc)

3 tbsp golden syrup

2 tbsp cocoa powder

3 eggs

1-2 tbsp milk to help with consistency (rice, dairy or soy milk)

Topping -  icing sugar and edible sprinkles and stars etc

OR 400g of melted chocolate (milk or white choc works well)

Method

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well

Divide into the cake pop moulds - fill the bottom half completelty (nb dont over fill)

Bake for 15 mins

Decorate!

Icing

You can dip these carefully into candy melts if you want or melt chocolate and dip.

It is worth skewering your ball with the lolly stick, removing, filling with icing and then reinserting...

I tend to zigzag ordinary icing over the ball and then if really adventurous dip in edible stars
