People, I present to you Pigs in a Blanket Cake Pops!
A pigs in a blanket that’s pop-able! This definitely was a good idea! I made 3 batches of these for batch-cooking, but my family hit them pretty hard, so we have a few less than I planned on for the week. My thought is to make them ahead of time for quick breakfasts, but they are so easy to make, I could easily make a batch in the morning, too, with prepped ingredients.
INGREDIENTS: (Makes 72 cake pops)
1 22oz. pkg. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Pancake Mix
2 1/4 c coconut milk (or cow, almond, etc)
3 tbsp coconut or olive oil (I used lemon-infused EVOO)
2 tbsp coconut nectar or alternative sweetener
1 tbsp raw honey, optional
24 breakfast sausage links, each link cut into 3 equal parts, about 1/2″
THE METHOD (OVEN TO 350, YOU WILL NEED A CAKE POP PAN*)
- Generously grease cake pop pan, both the bottom and the top. I prefer to use coconut oil.
- Cook sausage, then cut each sausage into 3 equal pieces. Set aside.
- Add all remaining ingredients into a large pourable mixing bowl. Mix until all lumps are gone.
- Pour batter into one side of cake pop vessel. I like to fill them generously. Add one piece of sausage.
- Place top on cake pop pan, put brackets in place.
- Bake on 350 for 15-17 minutes, or until cake batter pops out the top.
- Cool for about 5 minutes, remove brackets, gently pull off top ( slide a knife between the top and bottom pan to make it easier to separate them). Using a small rubber spatula or spoon, gently ease the cake pops out, then cool on cooling rack.
- Store in a large glass rectangle glass container with each layer separated by wax paper.
*IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CAKE POP PAN, YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS IN A MINI-MUFFIN TIN
SURE-FIRE WAY TO STORE THESE:
Guaranteed these will not last longer than a week, so no need for me to even think of freezing them. Maybe I’ll freeze them if I make more next time. But for this go-round, I placed them in layers in glass Pyrex dishes, separating all layers by wax paper. They won’t stick together now and they can be popped in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, or eaten cold.
