Cake Batter Blondies are one of the best treats to celebrate with. A slice of this dessert served with a scoop of ice cream will only enhance your next celebration!

Cake Batter Blondies

One of my favorite desserts ever is a blondie. Blondies are a lot like a brownie with their chewy dense texture, but also have a soft cake crumb. I love to order them when Kale and I go out to eat at a restaurant. Today I am introducing my Cake Batter Blondies recipe. They’re out of this world delicious and so simple to create!

WHAT MAKES THESE BLONDIES SO GOOD?

For the base of this dessert, I use a Funfetti or Rainbow Chip cake mix. This adds a little bit of flavor, ease, and a whole lot of fun to your treat! I add a few extra ingredients to the mix that make these so soft and yummy. After the blondies have finished baking warm frosting is poured over the top to make each piece a little more colorful and delicious!

WHAT KIND OF FROSTING DO I USE FOR THE BLONDIES?

The frosting is so simple you can use it for almost any dessert. Sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla is all you need. One of the best things about this frosting recipe is that you can customize it with a little bit of food coloring. Depending on the celebration, all you need is a few drops to make sure your dessert is specific to the current holiday!

  • BLONDIES:
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9×9-inch pan with non-stick spray.
    Combine cake mix, oil and egg in a large bowl. Slowly stir in milk and then fold in white chocolate chips. (Batter will be thick.) Pour batter into prepared pan and spread out evenly.
