Cake Batter Cookies Recipe

These Cookies taste just like eating a vanilla cupcake. They’re sweet and chewy. My Cake Batter Cookies, besides being delicious, are super fun for birthdays, holidays and just because!

If you’re the kind of person that gets intimidated easily with baking, try these cake batter cookies! They’re full proof!

The cake mix: While we love using a vanilla cake mix, have fun with your cake batter cookies! Try using chocolate or strawberry! Or leave out the sprinkles and try using a carrot cake mix!

No sprinkles? No problem! Plain ole funfetti cake mix will work in a pinch too!

Sprinkles: My kids love to make their cookies with rainbow sprinkles, but the best part of this recipe is how versatile it is! Try using red, white and blue for 4th of July or red, white and green for Christmas!

You can have so much fun customizing your own cake batter cookies for really any occasion or holiday!

Cake batter is so versatile, why does everyone just use it for cake?! Here are some great ideas for using a cake mix

How to make cake batter cookies: 

Start out with 1 box of your favorite vanilla cake mix.

Add to it: baking powder, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla extract.

When that is all mixed up, add in your sprinkles! I love using a cookie scoop to make sure every cookie is about the same size.
