Snowball Cakes by Siúcra

We hear the snow is on the way back so we might cook up a batch of Siúcra Snowball Cakes. Quick and easy to make, these delicious coconut-coated Snowball Cakes are the perfect snow day treat!


Makes 50


  • 225g butter, warmed to room temperature
  • 45g Siúcra Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 100g desiccated coconut
  • 300g plain flour
  • 300g Siúcra Icing Sugar for rolling the cakes in


To make the Snowball Cakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 C, line a baking sheet with baking parchment, and set it to one side.
  2. Whisk the butter until creamy and then add the Siúcra Icing Sugar and salt, mixing well. Add the vanilla sugar, cornflour and desiccated coconut.
  3. Continue mixing at low speed while adding the flour a little at a time, until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Roll the batter into balls (1 tbsp of batter for each), place on the baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes.
  5. Remove balls from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before rolling in plenty of Siúcra Icing Sugar. Place them on a wire rack and leave to cool fully.
  6. Roll the balls in Siúcra Icing Sugar again just before serving.
