cake batter blondies.

on September 23, 2012

You know how when moms visit their daughters at college they bring stuff like money or furniture? My mom is cooler than that. She brings me cake mixes. And not just any cake mix, she brings me funfetti cake mix. It’s pretty awesome. However, now I have 4 cake mixes in my pantry and no desire to make 96 cupcakes. So I’m going to share some recipes I’ve found that use cake mix that aren’t actually cake (remember birthday cake fudge?)! Some from Pinterest, some from other food blogs. (I’ll just apologize in advance for some of these…please forgive me for their richness)

We’re going to start with cake batter blondies. Cake batter and white chocolate. You can’t go wrong. You all know how I feel about funfetti. It is the king of cake mixes.

Another awesome thing about this recipe is that it is a one-bowl-wonder. All you need is large bowl, a wooden spoon, and an 8×8 pan. Simple and delicious. Those are two of my favorite words.

This is the conversation you and I are going to have when you cut into these:
“Joy, there is no way these are done baking. Obviously you are a crazy person.”
“You are correct about my craziness. However, the slightly undercooked middle is the best part. Trust me.”
You take a bite…”Oh my. I should have trusted you. These ARE amazing!”
“I’m so glad we’re on the same page. Please eat seven more. There’s no judgement here.”
The end.

Make some blondies, spend some quality with your best friend, stop worrying about recital dresses, and eat some blondies.

Cake Batter Blondies

recipe from girl meets life

makes one 8×8 pan

1 box of Funfetti cake mix

1/4 cup canola oil

1 egg

1/3 cup of milk

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8×8 pan with nonstick spray. Set aside. In a large bowl combine the cake mix, oil, and egg with a wooden spoon. Slowly add the milk and stir until everything is mixed. The batter will be really thick and dense. Add the white chocolate chips and mix well. Dump into the prepared pan and spread to the edges. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Let set for 15-20 minutes so the middle can firm up a little bit. Cut and serve warm or at room temperature.

These blondies will last for 3-4 days stored in an airtight container. Or just share them will all your friends and you won’t have to worry about it.
