I Have an Obsession With Cake Batter

I have to say that I love all things Cake Batter flavored. The place that introduced me to the flavor is Cold Stone Creamery. It is absolute delicious-ness wrapped in whatever dessert is flavored with. It reminds me of my days as a kid when I used to like the spoon after mixing cake. Um…who am I kidding, I still like to lick the spoon! 🙂

You can imagine my delight when I found this on Pinterest. It’s from one of my favorite sitesSix Sisters’ Stuff. It’s a simple recipe and you can adapt it in different ways.

The first Time I made it, I think I over baked it but it was still delicious. You have to remember that even though you take it out of the oven, it still cooks afterwards, so it is good to take it out early. I actually have a convection oven so, mine bake even FASTER. So bake it a few times and adapt it to YOUR particular oven. In my oven, 16 minutes was perfect–I like it moist.

Yummy Ingredients:

  • 1 box Funfetti (or any yellow) cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Sprinkles from the cake mix (if it comes with it)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles for the top
  • Frosting (see recipe below)

Directions:
Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly. Then mix in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Spray pan or Pyrex baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter (the batter is kind of doughy, so it’s not like normal cake batter) in pan and spread to the edges. Bake for 16 – 20 minutes at 350 degrees. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting. Frost when cooled and sprinkle with sprinkles (my girls’ love doing the sprinkling as you can see in the picture below).

Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on how thick/runny you like it)
  • 3-4 drops food coloring to match what ever occasion you may be celebrating.

Combine all ingredients until well-blended. Spread on top of blondies.

For the Fourth of July, I made it with a box of patriotic cake mix. I put half of the red and blue sprinkles in the cake and saved the remainder for the top.

I think it tastes better when the cake is only LIGHTLY brown. Not like this:
