These cake batter blondies are thick, chewy, and perfectly sweet! The batter begins with cake mix, giving the blondies that sweet cake batter flavor. With the addition of other ingredients, these easy homemade blondies are rich, flavorful, and taste just like cake batter!
You know what’s fun about Cake Batter Blondies? Everything.
They’re sweet, rich, and full of sprinkles, aka, the best thing ever.
I’m serious. Have you ever looked at sprinkles, or seen sprinkles on chocolate donuts, funfetti cupcakes, or chocolate cupcakes, and not smiled? Sprinkles are ridiculously pretty, and they transport you back to a time when life was a little simpler and running through sprinklers was the highlight of the day.
Take me back!! Please (but only if I can bring these Cake Batter Blondies with me…).
I love blondies because of their texture. They have a dense, chewy texture–they are, in essence, a blonde version of a brownie. Now, I love brownies more than most people (but I’m a chocoholic), but, whereas brownies will always have that underlying chocolate flavor, blondies offer more versatility. You can turn anything into a blondie: lemon pie blondies, butterscotch blondies, raspberry blondies, white chocolate blondies, etc. So, basically, let your imagination run wild!
The cute sprinkles I used here I found at Sur La Table this past holiday season, and I love them! They look like confetti, which just feels whimsical! Sprinkle confetti. I like it.
These are a cinch to make, because they actually do use boxed cake mix. Of course, these can be made entirely from scratch, which I am all for, but sometimes, when you just don’t have the time but desperately need a sugar fix, it’s recipes like this that are amazing.
In about five minutes, the batter will be done and ready to bake. And in about 20-25 minutes, you’ll be well on your way to a sugar induced coma.
I chose to make these in freeform mini pans just because I felt like it, but these can surely be made in a square pan, muffin cups, or circular cake pan. It’s your life, guys. Do whatever feels right.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 and spray an 11x7 pan with nonstick cooking spray.*
In a bowl, mix cake mix, egg, melted butter, milk, and vanilla and almond extracts together. The consistency should be very thick.
Once everything is combined, add sprinkles and chocolate chips, and mix until it comes together.
Pour mixture into pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are just turning brown. In my opinion, it's better for blondies to be a little gooey than dry, so as soon as the edges begin to turn golden, take it out and allow it to cool.
*When I originally photographed this recipe, I baked these cake batter blondies in 4 mini freeform pans. If you do the same, the bake time is about 19-20 minutes.
