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?
