Cake pop seeds

Orange Poppy Seed Cake

Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly grease and flour an 8- 9 in. cake or springform pan.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt three time and leave in the sifter; set aside.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat eggs for 3-4 minutes until think and lemon colored. Gradually add 1 cup sugar and beat for another 5 minutes. Add the orange zest, orange liqueur, and poppy seeds, mixing until combined.

Melt the butter in the hot milk. Using a spatula, mix the hot milk into the egg mixture all at once. Sift the flour into the mixture, gradually folding it in. (The folding in of the milk and dry ingredients should take only about a minute. The batter will be thin.)

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

While cake is baking, prepare syrup topping: In a small saucepan, mix the juices with sugar. Heat, stirring until sugar dissolves, then simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer cake to a rack. Poke top of cake repeatedly with a fork. Spoon warm topping over the cake and cool completely. If making ahead, wrap cake in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator.

Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops

I have a confession to make. I literally had this whole post typed up and scheduled to post, and forgot to hit schedule 🙁 I feel like a big doofus for not realizing it and just continuing on posting other things. My bad, I am sorry. Guess that doesn’t matter because it is here now. So I had never actually had a cake pop before I went Paleo, and that is probably a good thing as I am addicted to these. After I made my Chocolate Cake Pops I kind of became obsessed and someone requested lemon poppy seed.

So what other flavors of non paleo cake pops are out there? I feel like these are so good that it won’t matter but when I get inspired by the cake pop machine again I want to have a flavor to tackle. I am thinking that something with chocolate chips and bacon may have to be next when I get in a dessert mood. So I think I have talked about cake pops enough. Every time I try to change the subject I look at these photos again and my mind wanders back to the first bite, which is why I am blabbing. I want to make these again right now and probably would if it wasn’t 9 PM.

Just to update you on my life, I had an amazing trip home to Boston. Other than the fact that I have truly become a California guy at heart since I flew in flip flops and got frost bite within 10 minutes of being home. I brought shoes but was so concerned about being comfortable on the plane that I rocked my Lulu lemon kung fu pants, a comfy hoodie and flip flops without thinking about landing. I can say that in the future, I will always think about it. When I landed in Boston, I had to wait 27 minutes for a shuttle outside so I was sitting on the curb with my legs wrapped in my sweatshirt just to cover my toes. LESSON LEARNED. So there really is no moral to this paragraph or point except that I plan on thinking through decisions a lot further when it comes to being warm. No go eat some cake pops 🙂

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops

Ingredients

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops
  • 2 cups almond flour 185 grams
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour 90 grams
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 3 grams
  • 2/3 cup raw honey melted
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure lemon extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
Glaze
  • 1 cup coconut cream concentrate melted

Instructions

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Thoroughly combine using a wooden spoon until smooth

To make process easier, transfer your batter to a 1 gallon ziploc bag and cut off a small corner to replicate a piping bag

After 8 minutes, open the lid and turn the cake pops over, close the lid and cook for an additional 4 minutes

Assembly

You can eat the cake pops now as donut holes and drizzle your melted coconut cream over them or you can place a cake pop stick in them and eat like that.

Once your cake pops are cool, dip the end of your stick into your melted coconut cream and then place in the center of your cake pop

Once all of your cake pops have sticks, place them all in the freezer for 60-90 minutes so cool completely and harden

Remove them from the freezer and one by one, dip each cake pop in your melted coconut cream letting the excess drip off.

You can hold it in your hand while the coconut cream hardens to a shell and then place back on your plate

Notes

I got 21 Cake pops using the Donut Hole maker, you will get double if you use a traditional cake pop maker

Just bought a cake pop maker and I can’t wait to make these!

Has anyone ever made these using Nikki’s Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut butter (rather that coconut cream) for the glaze? If so, how did that turn out?

I am SO excited by this recipe! I hope you will share a chocolate cake version sometime! So fun!

Great idea 🙂 thank you!!

My daughter is obsessed with the idea of cake pops (has only had one in her entire life) so… I think I love you. She’s not totally gluten-free, but I minimize it as much as I can.

Yay! Finally! Paleo cake pops! Can’t wait to try them.

Let me know how you like them once you do!

Oh I think I will have a sour face as I eat this Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops! 🙂

They aren’t sour, in my opinion but let me know how you feel about them.

You can buy a cake pop maker at Clicks. I just bought one for R 169.

I made these for the first time yesterday for my Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance support group’s Christmas party. The pops were a huge success. They tasted awesome and everyone raved about them.

Just thought I’d share my experience in actually making them. So, first off, I tried your suggestion of using a zip lock bag and cutting off the tip. The problem is, I have terrible depth perception and kept bumping the end of the bag against the hot cake pop maker which caused it to melt and add extra holes. Before you know it, I had huge mess as I had batter going everywhere but in the machine. Fortunately, I have a full contingent of cake decorating supplies (I use to make fancy cakes for my family, friends and co workers and started teaching myself some of the Wilton cake decorating techniques). So, I grabbed my largest pastry bag, coupler and metal tip. With that, piping the batter into the machine was a piece o’ cake! (pardon the pun).

My next challenge came with the glaze. Everything I’ve been told is that coconut cream concentrate is the same thing as coconut butter and I had a jar of Artisana raw organic coconut butter. So I stuck my cup of coconut butter into the top of a double boiler and tried to melt it over the boiling water. It got soft, but never melted. Eventually it started to turn brown. I then tried the microwave but it burned even worse in there. I’m amazed the smoke detector didn’t go off.

With not much time to spare, I turned to a very un paleo option. I still have some confectioner’s sugar in the pantry so I made a glaze out of it and some of the leftover coconut milk and added a little vanilla extract. I only gave them one coating but it was enough (flavor wise). Not having a thicker coating on it like yours, the brown exterior of the pops showed through and some people found that unappetizing (though it didn’t stop them from eating and enjoying them).

After I got home I found a recipe for a more paleo friendly glaze on the Urban Poser which I think would work (http://www.urbanposer.blogspot.com/2012/05/vanilla-poppy-seed-cake-doughnuts.html). It uses coconut butter, honey, lemon juice, the seeds from a vanilla bean pod and water to get it the right consistency. I think I’ll give that a try next time.

Hi Everyone. If you don’t have a cakepop maker you can still make these. I had a friend tell me how to make them without a pop maker in the past and i just did a little googling to confirm and it seems pretty easy.
Bake a cake with the batter (not sure of timing, prob 350 for about 25-35 minutes….set your timer for a low amount and keep checking).
Once the cake is done let it cool…until you feel you can handle it to the touch.
Crumble up the cake…with forks, by hand, in a processor…whatever you want.
once it’s all crumbled up, take the coconut creme concentrate and pour some into the cake…use enough that you can form balls out of the mix.
Either by hand or with an ice cream scoop form the cake balls. Then follow the rest of George’s directions. If you want more specific instructions just google: how to make cake pops without a cake pop maker.

George, will whole foods have the lemon extract and the coconut creme concentrate?

Yes on the lemon extract or any store and the coconut cream concentrate I use is linked or you can get coconut butter

Ok, so these just came out of the oven. They are YUMMY. I don’t have a cake pop or donut maker, so I used mini muffins.

Here are the changes I made:

I didn’t have lemon extract, so I used the juice of one lemon and 5 drops lemon essential oil.
I halved the recipe, but used the same amount of poppy seeds and lemon zest.

I would recommend using spray in the muffin papers as they stuck a little to the papers.

I baked at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

I will try with tapioca and coconut flour next time as I just found out I am allergic to almonds. 🙁

Oh no. What a horrible thing to be allergic to. Coconut and tapioca flours are great though. Thanks for sharing 😉

I am also allergic to almonds, as well as coconuts. If your body can handle gluten free oats, I use them ground into flour to replace almond flour.

Get your “pa RUM pa pum pum” on this holiday season with Rum and Maple Bacon Cake Pops. Bacon grease as a fat and maple as a sweetener in the cake. Rum extract in the glaze and garnished with bacon crumbles. Or maple-candied bacon crumbles. But like, bacon.

Or maybe use peppermint/espresso or ginger/chocolate for flavor pairings. Christmas, ya dig?

Haha thank you this sounds VERY awesome !

These are making me starrrrving. Love em and can’t wait to make!

I hope you love them!

Has anyone ever made any savory type pops in the cake pop maker?

These are just too perfect looking! I have made regular cake pops that don’t look this pretty, haha! They sound delicious and I can’t wait to try making them! 😀

I’ve been waiting for this recipe. 😉 Going to make these tonight. Perfect treat to have while the snow storm moves in.

Oh, definitely. Let me know how you like them!

Is it really 2 Tablespoons of lemon extract?! That just seems like an awful lot of extract.

It sure is 🙂 Try it out, and let me know what you think.

Can’t wait to try these but first need to get the cake pop maker!

Thank you George! You are AMAZING and these look AMAZING too!

You’re welcome. Let me know how you like them!

Since I dont have a cake pop/donut hole maker, would they be ok if they were cupcakes? Not sure how long I would cook them or at what temp. tips?? Thanks! 🙂

Need to buy Poppy Seeds. Do you think Chia Seeds would work or is it a flavor thing? I want to put a raspberry in the middle! Got to try that!

Made vanilla pops with chocolate raspberry ganache. AMAZING! Also chocolate mint and chocolate rolled in coconut! You got my brain rolling! Fun for the whole family.

Those all sound awesome. I don’t know if you would want to use chia seeds with cake pops. I know they expand when mixed with liquid, and they don’t have much of a taste. If you do try them out, let me know how that works out ? 🙂

White chocolate raspberry using cocao butter!

Yeah I am glad you got this posted! I bought poppy seeds just for this!
