Our pop cakes recipe is inspired by Enid Blyton‘s The Faraway Tree – the sweet treats, also called pop biscuits, are eaten by the children who climb the giant enchanted tree.
For more literary inspiration, take a look at this Bruce Bogtrotter chocolate cake.

- 60.4g (34.5g sugars)
You can vary the filling – try jam, golden syrup or Nutella, and make the icing with water instead of lemon juice.
The biscuit-like cakes are best eaten on the day they’re cooked, but you can freeze the unbaked cakes in step 3, wrapped in cling film, for up to a month. Cook from frozen, adding an extra 5 minutes to the cooking time.
