Cheeseburger Chiffon Cake Pops!

We’ve seen cute Macaron burgers. How about Cheeseburger Chiffon Cake Pops?

Just sharing something cute/simple I made for the teachers/children. These were actually inspired by cute Macaron burgers shared by a friend =).

Burger buns – chocolate chiffon cake
Beef patty – dark chocolate chiffon cake
Cheese – vanilla chiffon cake
Lettuce – pandan chiffon cake

Have it all in a bite! Yums! A cheeseburger chiffon cake pop!

The buns are baked in round silicone cake pop moulds. The beef patty, cheese and lettuce are cut from layer chiffon cake using round, square and leaf cutters respectively.

Cheeseburger chiffon pops (makes approximately 9)
3 egg yolk
20g sugar
39g corn/vegetable oil
37 ml water
5 ml vanilla extract
60g cake flour
Cocoa powder (extra dark)
Cocoa paste
Pandan paste
Yellow food coloring (Queen’s natural coloring)

4 egg whites
45g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1. Preheat oven to 160°C.
2. Beat egg yolks with sugar with whisk till pale yellow before stirring in oil, water and vanilla extract.
3. Add in sieved flour and whisk till no trace of flour found.
4. Scoop out 6 tsp batter into 3 bowls each. To the first bowl, add 1/3 tsp extra dark cocoa powder (for beef patty). To the second bowl, add 1/5 tsp pandan paste (for lettuce). To the third bowl, add a drop of yellow food colouring (I used Queen’s natural turmeric-based coloring) (for the cheese). To the rest, add ½ tsp cocoa paste (for the bun). Mix well.
5. Meringue: Beat the egg whites with ¼ tsp cream of tartar till stiff peak, mixing in caster sugar in 2 additions.
6. Scoop over 12 tbsp meringue into each of the 3 bowls and gently fold in respectively. Fold in the rest of the meringue into the light cocoa batter in 3 additions.
7. Scoop the light cocoa batter into a cake pop mould (fill 18 round molds for 9 cake pop burgers). Bake at 160°C for 12 min.
8. Pour the dark brown batter into a baking-paper lined 6-inch tray and bake at 160°C for 14 min. Do likewise for the pandan and yellow batter.
9. Leave the cake pop mold to cool on a wire rack once out of the oven and unmould by popping the pops out when cool
10. Flip over the layer cakes onto a new baking paper and leave to cool covered by another sheet.
11. To assemble, cut out circles from the dark brown cake for the beef patty corresponding to the size of the ‘buns’ (cake pops). Cut out squares from the yellow cake for the cheese. Cut out ‘leaves’ from the pandan cake for the lettuce using a leaf cutter. Assemble just like how you would make a burger, using melted marshmallows to glue the parts together. Enjoy!

Hope they make you smile too!

With love! Happy Children's Day!
