So awhile ago I got a Babycakes cake pop maker for a really good price from Kohls, it was originally around $40 and I got it on sale for about $8 I think. I haven’t ever tried it out so yesterday afternoon I decided to give it a whirl since I figured I could sit down while making them with my injured ankle and all. I decided to give donut holes a go instead of cake pops and they came out beautiful and delicious as you can see, and oh so easy too! The recipe comes from C’s Sweet Designs and was perfect! I saw another idea on Pinterest for making cinnamon roll balls with cinnamon roll dough so I need to try that and, of course, cake pops. I’ll keep you posted!
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon lemon extract (I left this out, just wanted the vanilla flavor)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Fill a bowl or paper sack with topping ingredients and combine. (I used my Alison’s Pantry Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast Sugar.)
2 Cream together butter and sugar.
3 Add eggs and mix thoroughly.
4 Add vanilla, milk and lemon extract.
5 Slowly fold in flour and baking soda, do not overmix.
6 Pour batter into squeeze bottle or ziploc bag with corner cut off. (I used my Pampered Chef mini scoop.)
7 Squeeze or scoop batter to fill bottom of well heated and greased cake pop machine.
8 Cook according to machine’s directions, about 4 minutes for mine.
9 While piping hot, dump into cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat.
