Cake Batter Blondies

Cake Batter Blondies

Makes 12-16.

At church, each child received a gift box before Christmas to help them celebrate Jesus's birthday.  Even though it didn't mean much to a 5-month-old, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and use the Funfetti cake mix and frosting to make a cake on Christmas Day.  Next year, she may even be able to help out, because I WILL be making this recipe again... maybe annually on Christmas.  It was delicious!

1 box yellow (or Funfetti!) cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles (if you use a yellow cake mix, add these in)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Sprinkles for the top
Frosting (see recipe below)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly – you want the batter to remain as dense as possible. Then mix in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips.

Spray 9"x9" pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dump batter in pan and spread to the edges. Bake for 28-32 minutes. (They will be a little soft/gooey in the middle- just let them sit for about 20-30 minutes and they will set up.)

Frost when cooled (I used a container of Funfetti frosting, but feel free to use the original poster's homemade recipe below).

1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
2-3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on how thick/runny you like it)
3-4 drops red food coloring to get desired pink color (optional)

Combine all ingredients until well-blended. Spread on top of blondies.

Add more sprinkles if you'd like:
