I owed you one.
I mean, given all of the different popsicles that I’ve shared on these pages for the last 4 years (!!), how have I not shared a cake batter one??
I think this was partly because I struggled with how to do it. I originally thought, well, cake mix of course. I’ve used it in these Muddy Buddies and these French toast muffins, with delicious results.
But I somehow didn’t think it would work in a popsicle. So I took to Pinterest as I do, and came across not only a fabulous recipe, but a new favorite blog to share!
Adrianna of A Cozy Kitchen is a delight. She’s charming, friendly and hilarious, and creates gorgeous recipes that are beautifully photographed. Go take a look – you’ll want to make all the things, I promise.
I loved her take on cake batter popsicles as they were very much like the white chocolate raspberry pops I made recently. I was intrigued by the use of milk powder (which I always have on-hand thanks to THIS funfetti beauty), and I happened to have all of the other ingredients I needed.
EXCEPT the sprinkles.
I KNOW. I ALWAYS have sprinkles.
Which is why I never think I’m NOT going to have sprinkles. But I had just made another batch of pops (coming next week!) that used up all but a tablespoon, which forced me to dig through my pantry for alternatives. This was serendipitous because I actually liked the other mix-ins better – so I encourage you to experiment! Toffee bits, crushed peppermints, chopped nuts – I can’t imagine a misstep here.
Let me know what you use!
barely adapted from A Cozy Kitchen
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
3 tablespoons milk powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1/4 cup sprinkles, or an equal amount of any mix-ins you like (for this post I used rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, mini chocolate chips and peanut butter chips)
Beat the cream, confectioner’s sugar, milk powder and vanilla till soft peaks form (do not over beat). Add the whole milk and beat again till mixture is smooth.
Spoon a bit of the mixture into your popsicles molds, followed by some of the mix-ins. Tap the molds to level. Repeat layering till molds are filled. Tap the molds once more, topping off if needed. Insert popsicles sticks and freeze overnight.
Remove pops from molds by running briefly under hot water.
