Cake Batter Lovins

Posted on

Remember the “Cake Batter Everything” craze that swept over the food blog world in 2011? Yeah, I hopped on that and enjoyed it to the fullest.  I shared only one of my cake batter explorations with you, the Cake Batter Crispy Treats, which were my favorite cake batter flavored treat, but do you think I let the remainder of my bag of yellow cake mix go to waste? No way, Jose.

Here’s a few ideas if you need some ways to use up extra cake mix.

Cake Batter Oats. This is actually a pretty healthy recipe, considering there’s cake mix in it. And tasty too!

Cake Batter French Toast. What can I say, cake batter is such a great way to start the day. And sprinkles just make everything so happy.  This one would be fun for a birthday breakfast! I made a simple icing glaze by mixing like 1/4 cup powdered sugar with just enough milk to get it a drizzling consistency.

Cake Batter Candies. For these, I just melted some vanilla almond bark and added enough yellow cake mix to make it taste like cake batter, but not so much it got too thick.  I poured most of it in a chocolate bar mold (like the one I used for this Vegan White Chocolate), but I didn’t get a picture of that before I gave it to a friend as part of a thank you gift for turning a stain on my jeans into a work of art. The rest of it I poured into peanut butter cup molds and put sprinkles over the tops while it was still setting up.  Kids went crazy for these at a get together, even more so than my Cupcake Bites!

Have you made any cake batter flavored yums?

    • It got really crazy for a while lol. I had fun with it but I think it’s out of my system now. Although I do think I’ll be making this French toast for Joshua’s breakfast this year. :) That peanut butter cups sound so good!


    • And I have a soft spot for funfetti cake from a box, too…it was the only birthday cake I got as a child (we didn’t celebrate birthdays, but Dad did that for me anyway one year) and is so special to me!


  2. I totally missed the cake batter craze, but then I’m not a baker, so I not surprised. I do love French Toast so I went to the recipe for it and that looks very, very interesting. What a great twist on French Toast! Fun post Veronica! BTW – thanks for dropping by my blog. :)
