I made coconut pops in the weekend by baking this moist all-in-one coconut cake and breaking it down to make some pops. I used about 3/4 of it, froze the rest of the crushed cake.
To make the cake for the pops you will need:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
2 drops good vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coconut
2 spoons milk
Cream the butter and sugar. Add all the other ingredients and carry on beating until the mixture combines but do not over process.
Bake in a preheated oven 175C for 35 minutes
To make the pops:
Allow cake to cool. Break it down into a crumble, not too dine. Add two spoons cream and a spoon of water. Combine and make sure moisture is not soggy. Prepare a tray covered with baking parchment. Scatter 2 cups of coconut onto the tray. Form balls. Roll the balls in the coconut. Serve.
These balls are suitable for eating on the day they are prepared.
