I stopped eating desserts and sweets back in September. Because of that decision, I have about 6 boxes of cake/brownie mixes that will just go to waste. When a family dinner came up this past weekend, I took advantage and used up some funfetti mix and some frosting to make Cake Batter Blondies, as seen on the Six Sisters’ Stuff blog.
They looked and smelled delicious! According to all that had them at the dinner, they were really good 🙂 I wouldn’t know–I didn’t have them. (I guess that’s a little weird, right? A sort of food review and I don’t even know how they taste haha) We will just have to take everyone else’s opinion for the truth! At least I hadn’t ever had them before–that way I didn’t know precisely what I was missing…
- 1 box yellow (or Funfetti!) cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles (if you use a yellow cake mix, add these in)
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- sprinkles for the top (I didn’t have any…)
- Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly – you want the batter to remain as dense as possible. Then mix in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
- Spray pan (either 8×11″ or 9×9″ pan) with non-stick cooking spray. Dump batter in pan and spread to the edges. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. (They will be a little soft/gooey in the middle- just let them sit for about 20-30 minutes and they will set up.)
- Frost when cooled, if you want. I assume, like brownies, they will taste pretty good without frosting. (I just used a can of frosting, heated it up in the microwave in 10-second increments for 30 seconds, stirring in between. I added some food coloring and poured it on! Much easier to frost a cake with thinner frosting, which sets up the same in the end.)
