So I’m obviously on a cooking kick here lately, but other than that roast (yes, I’ll post the recipe, but I don’t have pics..) I’ve been concentrating on desserts. Gotta love it, right? Well, I found a recipe for cake-batter blondies & figured I had to try it. Was headed out to visit with friends again this past weekend & decided it would be a perfect thing to bring along.
I found the recipe on the “Cookies & Cups” blog – a fabulous spot if you’re looking for something decadent. I looked it over… thought about it… and made a couple changes. Here’s the original recipe from “Six Sisters“:
- 1 box vanilla cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
The blog post I saw on Cookies & Cups said she used the ‘funfetti’ cake mix. If I’d been serving to kids, that would have been exactly what I’d have done. However, I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit… So I decided to go w/ a Butter Pecan cake mix. I also used Almond milk – that’s what’s in the house. 🙂
Oh yeah. It worked. (yum!)
And the instructions:
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Prepare a 9×9 pan with baking spray
- In a large bowl combine cake mix, vegetable oil, egg and milk. Mix on medium low speed until the ingredients are just combined. Batter will be dense.
- Stir in your chips and marshmallows until distributed evenly.
- Spread in your prepared pan.
- Bake for 25 minutes until center is just set.
Just that simple! It turned out fabulously & I couldn’t have been happier w/ the results. (Same goes for my friends, because the pan didn’t last the weekend!) There was also a recipe for a Marshmellow Buttercream frosting… but my time was limited, so I just bought some cream cheese frosting & slapped it on. *fabulous*
I’m not kidding when I said these didn’t last… I had to put the group on lock-down just so I’d have a couple to photograph for this post! And in case you’re wondering, I totally regressed to my 8-year-old self while I was making these & licked the mixing bowl CLEAN. True story. 🙂
So enjoy… super-simple & simply wonderful.
