Cake Batter Cookies

This past Sunday I was having one of those days... an amazing day when I had absolutley nothing I needed to do.  The non-profit I work for, Wish of a Lifetime, had it's annual gala the night before and I was so excited to have Sunday off after working the event.

Even though I wanted something sweet I didn't want to go to the store, so I was so excited to find this recipe for Cake Batter Cookies from Six Sisters' Stuff.  I always have at least one box of cake mix in the pantry so it was the perfect thing to test out for my blog.

What You Need:
1 box of any flavor cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup choclate chips (or peanut butter chips)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and mix the cake mix and baking powder. Then mix in the eggs and the vegetable oil.

The batter was very thick and hard to stir but not clumpy.  I put aluminum foil on my cookie sheets so I dont have to clean them afterwards, but if you don't grease them, and drop the batter on with a spoon.

The original recipe said to bake them for 10 minutes but mine needed almost 20 minutes. I think it was the high altitude of living in Colorado that made it take longer.  They also spread out a lot more than I thought they would.

The cookies tasted just like cake, were better when they were warm and they kind of reminded me of muffin tops.  I think it would be fun to experiement with Red Velvet and funfettie cake mix.


  1. looks yummy!!! having a tasty treat without feeling TOO guilty...hahaha..i'd be all "no, i didn't even TOUCH a SLICE of cake today." ngehehehe...

  2. Sound & look yummy! I think I need to try this one.

  3. You can make pancakes from cake mix! I did a carrot cake and added some sweet potato baby food and they were amazing! I followed the recipe that used the entire box plus a little flour...
