Cake batter. There; now that I have your attention, we can discuss something very serious. No, not world peace or global warming or whatever. We’re going to discuss something a little bit more fun, like cake batter. Seriously, we can make so many amazing things with cake batter that have nothing to do with cake, and that’s what makes our lives so much more enjoyable. So sit back, relax and enjoy; because I’m about to tell you about 10 amazing cake batter desserts that will have you realizing that there is a reason for living, and it’s so that you can eat these.
Cake Batter Smoothie
Not all desserts need to be completely unhealthy, right? Okay, so I don’t know that this is considered healthy, but it’s a smoothie and we can pretend anything with the word ‘smoothie’ in the title is healthy. That’s how I rationalize my own life, really. Put a frozen banana, ¾ cup unsweet almond milk, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a teaspoon of butter and two or three ice cubes in your blender and mix it all up. This is going to come out tasting just like cake batter when you add a little bit of Greek yogurt mixed with raspberries to the top. Enjoy.
Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats
To begin with, grease an 11×7 baking dish. Now you’re going to melt 3 tablespoons of butter on the stove in a large pan and add a bag of marshmallows. You will want to stir constantly to ensure that the mixture does not burn and that the marshmallows melt evenly. Now that everything is so beautifully melted together, add in a package of funfetti cake mix and continue to mix until that is complete. Remove your mixture from the heat and add in 6 cups of rice krispies, stirring well. Now fill your pan with the mixture and push it all down so that it is as even as possible. Top your mixture with some powdered sugar and a few colorful sprinkles and let it harden for a bit. This might be the most amazing thing you’ve ever eaten.
Cake Batter Bark
This is a very simple recipe that’s small on ingredients and big on taste. What we have to do to begin is line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and get rolling. You’ll melt 1 pound of dark chocolate in the microwave, mixing it every 30 seconds until it’s smooth and completely melted. Then you will pour that onto the pan and do the same with white chocolate, with the exception of pouring it onto the pan. You will melt the chocolate and then pour in a box of funfetti cake mix. Mix it together well and then drizzle the mixture on top of your chocolate. Swirl it together with a toothpick and then freeze it for a half hour. Now you may swoon.
Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Nothing is better than a fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie, right? Well, except for a fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie that’s made with cake batter; now that’s a winner. Start with a large bowl and add your 1 and ¼ cup of flour, a box of funfetti cake mix, and a half teaspoon of baking soda and then put it away for a bit. Now you will use a hand mixer to cream together your ¾ cup of unsalted butter (softened), your half cup of granulated sugar and your half cup of brown sugar until it’s all soft and mixed well. Next add an egg, a tablespoon of vanilla extract and mix. Finally, you’ll add your flour mixture and let it become a nice consistency. What you’ll do now is add a cup of chocolate chips. We like to add a half cup of white chocolate chips and a half cup of chocolate chips. Put one inch pieces of dough on a cookie sheet and bake them for approximately 8-9 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool and serve.
Cake Batter Blondies
It’s so easy to make this amazing recipe. You’ll start by mixing together a box of funfetti cake mix, ¼ cup veggie oil, an egg and ½ cup milk. When the mixture is nice and dense, you’ll add in a half cup of white chocolate chips by folding them nicely in. You will then take the mixture and put it in a greased brownie pan and stick it into an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Bake the mixture for approximately 25 minutes and let it cool. It’s going to be amazing when it’s done, and see how simple it was to make?
Cake Batter Pancakes
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it should be healthy. So we’ve decided that we are officially calling these healthy pancakes with no fat, calories or anything you might not consider healthy. There; problem solved. Start with a large bowl and add 1 ¼ cup flour, a box of funfetti cake mix, a teaspoon baking powder and a dash of salt and mix it all together. Next add 1 ¼ cup milk, 2 eggs and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. If the batter is thick, add more milk. If it’s too watery, add a little bit more flour. All that’s left to do now is make your pancakes on the griddle and top them how you like. Might I recommend topping them with a bit of whipped cream?
Cake Batter Fudge
Place 2 cups of funfetti cake mix, 2 cups powdered sugar, a ¼ cup milk and a half cup butter into a microwave safe bowl and stick it in there until everything melts together. After about two minutes in the microwave, you will remove the mixture and stir in a half cup of white chocolate chips until everything is melted together. Now spread your fudge into a greased cake pan (8×8) and pour some sprinkles on top as garnish. You’ll want to stick this in the fridge for a while until it is completely cooled and then move on to eating it. It’s delicious and tasty and perfect for a party.
Cake Batter Truffles
Mix 5 tablespoons of softened butter, ¼ cup sugar, ¼ cup flour, a box of yellow cake mix and a teaspoon of vanilla extract in a stand mixer to begin this amazing recipe. When you have a great dough-like consistency, add some colorful sprinkles to the mix and let it get really fun and pretty. When that’s all mixed, roll the dough into little balls and place them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Put the sheet in the freezer for approximately a half hour.
Now you’re going to want to add 8 ounces of white chocolate almond bark to a microwave-safe bowl with just a hint of shortening, perhaps only a teaspoon. You’ll stick it in there approximately 2 minutes, taking it out to stir it well every 30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. You’ll then dip your balls into the chocolate, put them back on the parchment paper and put them back in the freezer for another half hour before serving.
Cake Batter Milk Shake
Put 2 cups of vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk and a half cup of funfetti cake mix into a blender and go to town. When it’s all blended, pour it into glasses and serve with just a bit of whipped cream on top and a few pretty sprinkles to round everything out. It’s a delicious way to serve your friends and family something amazing and very simple.
Cake Batter Cookies
Start by turning the oven to 350 degrees to let it heat. Now you will use a large bowl to mix together a box of funfetti cake mix and a teaspoon of baking powder. You’ll then add in two eggs, a half cup of vegetable oil, a half teaspoon of vanilla and mix it all together until the mixture is stiff and doughy. If you feel the urge to add more sprinkles to the mix, go ahead and do that. You will not pout the cookies in small drops on a cookie sheet and bake each sheet for about 9 minutes. Let the cookies cool a bit and then enjoy them while they’re still warm.
