Lemon Cake Pops recipe



Cake pops seem to be all the craze lately. I see them everywhere and really, they are brilliant! Cake on a stick?!? You can not go wrong with that. Plus they are so pretty and make great gifts!. My children love them and can never eat just one. I usually let them decorate them how they want unless I am saving them for later. They always turn out so pretty and taste yummy!

Lemon Cake pops

  • Ingredients
    1 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3 eggs at room temp.
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 T. butter softened
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 t. lemon extract
  • 1/2 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • zest of one lemon


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt
  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla and lemon extracts, and lemon juice with a mixer.
  • Scrape bottom to make sure all is combined
  • Pour Flour mixture into wet mixture and blend until smooth, scraping sides and bottom of bowl
  • Add oil and lemon zest to the mix and mix it well
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan(s) and bake for 45 min. (9 x 5)
  • Insert toothpick to test…it must come out clean
  • Remove from oven and let cool


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar

Combine the butter, lemon juice, vanilla, and confectioner’s sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add more confectioner’s sugar, or lemon juice to adjust the consistency as needed.

Directions for cake pops:

Once frosting is made, take a spoon full and add into the crumbled cake. Using a spoon to combine. Add more frosting until you can form a small round ball. To form a ball take a small ice cream scoop amount and roll in your hands to form a ball.

Melt White Chocolate in a double broiler or you can use a microwave. Once White chocolate is melted dip a cake pop stick into the chocolate and then push it into the rounded cake. Once that chocolate has hardened, dip it cake ball into the chocolate until fully coated.I then use a green foam found in crafts stores or a cake op holder to place my cake pops in while it dries.

Have fun decorate your cake pops with royal icing in a icing bag and tip. Another idea is to roll the cake pop in sprinkles while wet.



These will be fun to make on March break as a special treat. Enjoy!
