Ok people. This post is coming to you in less time than it took to actually make this stuff. Which was at most 10 minutes. Want an easy and amazing treat this weekend? Or right now? I hope you have the following things:
yellow cake mix
Because that’s all you need.
1 cup yellow cake mix + 1 cup confectioners’ sugar in microwave safe bowl (yeah, that means this stuff is not going near a pot or the oven.
Mix ‘em together.
Add 1/2 stick (1/4 cup butter) and 1/4 cup milk. Don’t mix.
I cut up my stick of butter because I decided I could afford the extra 10 seconds of effort. If you can’t, no sweat. Cut another corner. Enjoy.
Place in microwave for 2 minutes.
Take it out and stir immediately.
Now it looks like cake batter. But sweet. And delicious.
Mix in sprinkles and pour into a greased pan or, as I did, a plastic container. Classy.
Oh, and did I mention that you could do this WITHOUT DAIRY?
This time use margarine and soy milk. Halve the soy milk (1/4 cup margarine, 1/8 cup soy milk).
Yum. Can we look at that again?
Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut into squares.
Congratulations. You have just made cake batter fudge.
All the goodness of sweet fudge without the candy thermometers.
No equipment. No mess. 1 bowl.
And this one I licked clean.
B.faB and happy baking...even though there’s no baking this time...
Recipe adapted from girl meets life.
- 1 cup yellow cake mix
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter or margarine, cut into small squares
- 1/4 cup milk or 1/8 cup soy milk
- sprinkles (optional)
Mix cake mix and icing sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not overmix as sprinkle colour may bleed.
Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
* Makes one 6 x 6” container, or double for an 8 x 8” pan.
** Notes: If the batter comes out too runny, stir in about 1 tsp or sugar or cake mix at a time until stiff. If too thick to stir in all components, slowly add 1/2 tsp of milk at a time, but batter should be thick!
Like cake batter? Then you will love these Cake Batter Rice Krispie Cupcakes. Yes. They are all of those things at once. Seriously.
