Lemon Cake Pops from Scratch

These are really yummy cake pops that my kids love. If you don't like things super sweet, you can just mix the cake with cream cheese instead of frosting. Store in the refrigerator.

Everyone loves cake pops! They are simple to make, and you can create anything for any occasion. They are also nice small bites of dessert instead of large slices of cake or pie. Can be made up in partial batches and the remaining ingredients stored for a few weeks.

Pancake Poppers

Pancakes didn't turn out so well on my electric stove top, so I invented these. They are light and airy and freeze well too. Try them with strawberry jam, dipped in syrup, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. Perfect for kid and adult brunches! This is a wonderful pancake recipe on its own too.

"My family made these last night and decorated them today. It does take a long time! But we made a chocolate cake version at the same time, and the cheesecake balls were easier [by far] to shape and keep together on the stick." – inspir8tion
