Cake Batter Cookies

Cake batter cookies – everything great about cake, now in cookie form.

Mind. Blown.

These are super easy to make – basically making some additions to a box of cake batter. I played with chocolate and vanilla cake mix with funfetti-inspired sprinkles, but I can imagine some other fun flavor combinations.

You can make these with any flavor cake mix, so feel free to get creative. Rainbow-themed cookies, lemon, red velvet … the ideas go on and on. Enjoy!

Cook time: 30 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 16 cookies
  • 1 box cake mix (any flavor)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup sprinkles (optional)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the cake mix with the baking powder and sprinkles to combine (be sure to break up any lumps).
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the oil with the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla to combine. Add the oil mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Scoop out the cookie dough and place tbsp. sized mounds of dough onto each prepared baking sheet. Leave about 3/4 inch between each cookie – they spread as they bake. Bake until the surface is crackly and the cookies are slightly golden around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Place extra batter in the fridge as you wait for cookie sheets to cool between batches.
