Lolly Cake is a bit of a kiwi tradition, available in most cafes and very popular with the kids. I am not sure if there is an equivalent around the world so let me know in the comments below if you have something similar where you are from and how you make it
There are only a few ingredients and the lolly’s are called Fruit Puffs, you can get them at some supermarkets but they are also available at Bin Inn.
If you are not familiar with this sort of sweet, you can use marshmallows in their place.
This is a very easy to make, simply prepare the basic ingredients and combine
The traditional shape of the lolly cake is a log. In order to get this shape you will need to firmly press the mixture together with your hands to create the shape desired. If this is too tricky you can simply press this into a slice tin and dust with coconut.
Onto the recipe
I hope you enjoy this quick easy recipe that is a hit with kids and adults alike.
You may enjoy this lovely recipe for Lolly truffles, very similar but with cocoa added for extra flavour

HI, I can’t get the same ‘lollies’ in the U.K but use bananas & shrimps sweets which look ok but without the same fruit flavour. A similar recipe I came across recently from an Irish colleague is called Fifteens & contains marshmallows & cherries.

I use the Eskimo lollies as a substitute and just cut them into three
I got confused over the whole fruit puffs thing. How do I know what lollies could actually substitute that if their all packaged up
Where do you live?
Could you please set up the usual nice easy “print” version of the lolly cake recipe. Love this cake & this web site. Thanks.
Hi Bernie, the ones that are not easily printed are part of my old website. It is on my very long list of things to do to change these over. In the meantime you can highlight the area and simply print the selected part. Sorry for any inconvenience, I hope to have this done for them all in the next few months! Thanks so much for your support.
