A simple recipe that comes together in under an hour, with just 6 ingredients. Perfect for the cake batter lover!
I love cake batter in all forms – bars, cupcakes, cake, etc. You name it and I’m there! There’s just something so irresistible about the rich, buttery flavor and all the rainbow sprinkles packed into every bite. For my very first post (how quickly they grow up!), I’m highlighting one of my favorite recipes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. The original recipe calls for an 11×7 pan, but I used an 8×8 pan to pack in more batter per bar.
They are ridiculously easy to make. All you need is a bowl and just a few simple ingredients that I’ll bet you already have in your pantry. From then on, it’s cake batter heaven. Seriously, I’ve made this recipe about half a dozen times now and it’s a hit every time. My friends and coworkers just gobble them up.
At this point, I’ve memorized the recipe (which doesn’t say much about my memory considering how many items go into this recipe) because I just love it so darn much! If you’re short on time and need a quick sugar fix, go for these cake batter bars. You won’t regret it.
Thanks so much for reading my first post! Don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list. 🙂
Cake Batter Bars
- 1 box yellow or vanilla cake mix
- 1/4 cup canola/vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with baking spray.
Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl.
Add the milk slowly - the batter is going to be super dense.
Mix in the sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
Pour into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle some more sprinkles on top (it'll make the bars look that much better!).
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the edges start to brown.
Allow to cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes.
The bars will remain fresh for up to 2 weeks if they are stored while covered at room temperature or in the refrigerator. If the batter is too dense for you to work with, you can go up to 1/2 cup of milk, but I've found 1/3 to be the magic number. I used Betty Crocker's 'Butter Recipe Yellow' mix, but the regular yellow cake mix also works.
