My first batch, I didn't use enough batter, and they did nit cook long enough. No biggie, I had enough batter so I tried a new batch. I filled them up higher, and increased my time. Now they started collapsing in the middle and it just felt like they were still not cooked thru. I tried a third batch and they were better, but I feel like the "top" of the pop, if you know what I mean, is deflating or flopping. I am thinking my batter is too moist? I used a yellow cake mix ( DH) and added one cup of buttermilk and a box of instant pudding mix. Maybe the cake is too moist?
Man, I feel like a failure. I am not very good at getting the cake balls formed into a nice round ball (when made the traditional way) and I thought that I would at least be able to handle this. I wanted to make pirate pops for my son's birthday.
Any help is appreciated.
Don't you just hate it when you have to work and you have to wait for the evening to do your experimentations? lol I guess work pays the bills, huh?
I think the cake mixes are just too thin. You may have luck with them. I may use them if I need to make a lot for a kids party.
Oh and I filled right up to the top of the well.
I bought a pillsbury cake mix and vanilla pudding.
I put cake mix, pudding, 3 eggs and 1 cup of milk(how much water it wanted me to add, I added milk instead).
My pops came out perfectly.
You didn't mention if you added eggs or not.
Hope they turn out better next time.
