The real reason that motivated me to go to Bed Bath & Beyond and pick up a Babycakes cake pop maker was because i was hoping i could make other things with it besides cake pops. i was thinking of takoyaki, mini croquettes, meatballs, pancake poppers, and other things that would make me feel like buying a cake pop maker would be worth spending the money.
A couple days ago, i was looking for recipes that uses evaporated milk because i bought it a couple days ago, and, no matter how hard i try, i can't remember why i bought it...i know it was for a specific recipe but i totally forgot which recipe it was for...
but anyway, a recipe for eggettes popped up on google images, but i was sad that i didn't have a fancy egg waffle mold, which is soo expensive city. but then i was thinking, holy smokes, my cake pop maker!!!
i used this recipe, which uses less sugar than the original recipe, which i disagree with. i knoow... the first recipe calls for 1/2 cup sugar, which is alot, but it wasn't sweet enough like the eggettes i've had back home. so the next time i make this, i think i'll add about 3/4 cup, maybe a little less than 3/4 cup.
anyway! this recipe is SUPER easy!! and if you don't have an egg waffle mold or a cake pop maker, you can probably bake it in the oven with a mini muffin pan or something...maybe...at 300 degrees for 10 min-12 min or until golden brown?
all you need to do is...
add 1/2 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon tapioca (or potato) starch into a bowl and whisk it around to combine...
add an egg...
add some sugar...
some vegetable oil...
and then mix that all up until it's a uniformed mixture like this.
then dump in the oil and evaporated milk... and mix! thaat's pretty much it. :)
i poured the batter onto the middle of the cake pop maker and helped it spread to the ends with my spatula. then i let it cook for 5-6 minutes.
mmm so soft and yummy :)
