I love cake batter. It’s such a delicious flavor that is great in so many different baked goods. Years ago I made these cake batter bites and they were super popular and so incredibly easy to make. I find that most cake batter desserts have sprinkles in them too which I think is funny because most cakes do not have sprinkles in them.
When I was looking for a fun and easy dessert for my students end of the year reward party I came across cake batter blondies. I thought they sounded interesting and I liked that they were baked with a cake mix. I’m always looking for easy desserts to make for my students.
The recipe only has a handful of ingredients and it says that the less liquid used in the recipe the better. For this reason I expected the bars to be thin. I was surprised when I pulled them out of the oven and they really rose. I fully expected them to taste like every other Funfetti type bars but they didn’t! They really tasted like cake batter.
I gave a piece to my husband and his response was that they were the best blondies I’d ever made! Since I’ve made a lot of blondies in my time this was a big compliment. They were really good. These bars did not have a cake like texture; instead it was more of a chewy cookie. They tasted just like cake batter and the sprinkles really brightened up the bars.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11 x 7 baking pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl combine the cake mix, oil, egg, and milk. Mix well until combined.
- Stir in the sprinkles and the chocolate chips.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkled a few extra sprinkles on top.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are beginning to brown.
- Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into 15 squares and enjoy!
