Chocolate Strawberry Cake Pops



Did ya’ll have a good weekend?

I had a great weekend soaking up the beautiful weather we had.



On Saturday Nico & I did autocross, it was my first time and boy was it fun to go fast and do turns and just let out my inner racer x!



I improved with every lap and it was a blast, hot but a blast!



So we were in the sun all day Saturday and were exhausted when we got home talking Nico fell asleep at like 6 and I did homework while being a vegetable on the couch in the air conditioning!



Sunday I went to the farmer’s market and got some fresh vegetables and fruit then did the grocery shopping for the next two weeks! Meat was on sale buy one get one so two week shopping trip was perfect.



After we washed the mini and went to the American River and sat and talked and swam and enjoyed the sun before coming back to lay by the pool and eat pizza. It was all in all a good time.



I also made cake pops using my handy dandy baby cakes cake pop machine and will be sharing that as soon as I write the menu for the next two weeks!

Now what you have been lusting for the Strawberry Chocolate Cake Pops!!



Ingredients:

1½ cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

½ cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp lemon extract

¼ cup strawberry puree

¼ cup milk



chocolate coating



I followed a white cake mix according to my baby cakes pop maker and made adjustments on my own. 





For the machine you only need to cook them for about 3 minutes and they will be all done and ready to cool so they can be dipped.




Note I have not tried baking this recipe as a normal cake then crumbling it but please let me know if you try it… I think it would be great to mix the cake with cream cheese frosting before you dip them.



To dip either insert a stick and dip or use your hand dip and place. Either way they will turn out yummy! :]

So there is that! Now time to go console my allergies since they are freaking out today for some reason... gotta love when the weather warms up!
