Cake Batter Blondies

I had this awesomely brilliant idea to walk to the library one day.  The whole thing is about 3 miles round trip.  Three miles Blockette and I can handle no sweat.  The day was not hot, there was even a nice cool breeze.  A perfect day you might say for a nice long walk.

What I didn't take into consideration was the library books.  The library books I had to haul back to return, and the new ones I had to haul home.  Ugh.  I have no intention of doing that again anytime soon.  By the time I got home I was POOPED. 
Pooped...but I wanted dessert.  Hey, after lugging a metric ton of books 3 miles, I DESERVED desert.  This recipe for cake batter blondies from girl meets life seemed really easy, and it had sprinkles.  Sprinkles!  Sprinkles make everything all better.

Got your cake mix? Check.  Your milk, eggs, and oil?  Yup. White chocolate chips and sprinkles?  Ok you are ready to go!  Mix all that stuff together and in 20 min you have cake batter blondie goodness. 

Just make sure that you don't over bake these precious little gems.  You want the center to be slightly gooey.  I tried to take a picture of the gooey center, but apparently gooey isn't very photogenic.

Now, this dessert is tasty still warm out of the oven, but once it is cooled completely, the cake batter goodness really shines.  If you can manage to wait to eat this until it is cooled you will be a much happier camper.

Mrblocko is not a fan of eating batter of any kind.  (I'm not so much anymore because I am not a fan of salmonella.  I do have fond memories of licking the bowl as a kid.  Om nom nom!)  I was fairly certain that Mrblocko was going to let Blockette and I demolish the entire pan ourselves.  Nope.  Even he thought this was a tasty dessert.  Oh well.  It probably wouldn't have been the best idea for Blockette and I to eat an entire pan of this ourselves!

Cake batter blondies from Girl Meets Life
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

Combine the first four ingredients 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. Bake for 30 minutes at 350F.


  1. YUM! so glad you liked them. I made a batch last week and think I might already make another soon :P

  2. Yeah, I want more of this, but it is Birthday month at our house so we will be eating regular cake for the next two weeks.

    I wonder how this would be in a double batch in a 9x13 pan. My husband has a family reunion this month. Hmmm. Maybe this will be one of the things I think of bringing to that. Got to think about that.
