Cake Batter Blondies Recipe

These Cake Batter Blondies are a recipe that you won't want to miss out on. They are probably one of the best blondies you will ever taste, and are so easy to make.

My husband LOVES anything that uses a “Funfetti” cake mix and I knew as soon as I saw these that they would quickly become his favorite.

I was totally right. This is kind of a like a dense cake, which makes it easy to cut up and serve as bars. They are super easy to throw together and taste amazing.

I love cake mix recipes, because half of your ingredients list cuts in half, and makes for a quick and simple dessert, that I know the whole family will love.

And that’s exactly what this recipe is. It is quick, simple, delicious, and full of funfetti flavor. We may start making these for birthdays instead of actual cake, because these are amazing.

can i replace the white chocolate chips with something?

This recipe calls for white chocolate chips, just to give it that extra little bit of sweetness. However, you really don’t need the chocolate chips, if you want to take them out. You could replace them with milk chocolate chips, but I think this recipe would work perfectly without any.

could i try making this using other cake mix flavors?

This recipe calls for funfetti cake mix. We personally love it the most, and it pairs nicely with just about everything.

However, you could branch out, and switch things up, and try a different cake mix. Here are a few that might taste absolutely delicious:

  • strawberry cake mix
  • white cake mix
  • chocolate or devil’s food cake mix
  • lemon cake mix
  • carrot cake mix
  • cherry chip cake mix

Really you could try any cake mix, but depending on what flavor you choose, we recommend pairing a frosting flavor and color that matches or pairs nicely with your cake mix of choice.

if you love these blondies, be sure to try our cadbury mini egg Blondies.  they are soft, chewy, and so delicious! A family favorite recipe.

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box Funfetti cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Frosting:
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on how thick/runny you like it)
  • 4 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles (for the top)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch glass pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl.
  3. Add the milk to the bowl slowly, you want the batter to remain as dense as possible.
  4. Fold in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter in pan and spread to the edges.
  6. Bake for 25-30 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).
  7. Cool completely.
  8. To make frosting, combine all frosting ingredients together in a bowl and frost bars.
  9. If frosting is too thick, add a little more milk.


Yellow cake mix can be used instead of funfetti cake mix. You will need to add 1/4 cup of sprinkles to the mix. (frosting is optional because these taste amazing without frosting, but I am a serious frosting lover, so I added some and loved the way it turned out).

  1. Sorry about that Elizabeth and Anonymous! I just added about 3-4 drops of red food coloring to the frosting and mixed it in. I added it to the ingredients list for future reference. I have also made these with light blue frosting (about 5 drops of blue food coloring) and light green frosting (about 4 drops green food coloring). All of them look good. :)
  2. @ Anonymous- I have had the best luck with these when I make them in an 11x8" pan- maybe you could just make two pans about that size? As far as adapting to a 9x13, I am thinking that it would be best to increase the recipe by 50%, but that means that you would need 1 1/2 cake mixes . . . which is kind of random! And as far as baking time, I would probably increase it 5-10 minutes? I would just watch it and see if it needs more time than that! Good luck! I hope that it works! :) Have fun at your holiday potluck!
  3. My husband doesn't like chocolate too much and I'm a chocolate freak! So, I have had trouble finding desserts we both like. The white chips were just enough to keep me happy and the blondie has been his favorite Christmas dessert so far. I used a yellow cake with green and red Christmas sprinkles to make it holiday worthy and kept the frosting white and added red sugar crystals on top! It's been a hit! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
  4. Making these for a church social tonight. I am VERY pleased with the ease of making these, and the frosting is fantastic! I had pink Wilton frosting color and it really gave it a PUNCH of color! I think I might skip the sprinkles on top the frosting is so beautiful...
    Thank you!
  5. To save time, I used melted white chocolate chips as frosting. Just dump half a bag of white chocolate chips onto the bars when they come out of the oven, wait 5 minutes, and spread. Then top with sprinkles just like the recipe suggests. Thanks for the recipe! DELICIOUS!
    • Andrea- I am so sorry! I don't know what would have happened? I know that different pans (glass, dark metal, etc) might make a difference and every oven cooks a little differently. Anyway, I am so sorry! I just don't know. It's totally a mystery to me!
  6. I made these last night and they are awesome, but I suspect mine turned out different. When reading the recipe I assumed the white chocolate chips melted into the batter while it cooked, but mine stayed whole (they were ghirardelli white chocolate chips). Are they supposed to melt or stay solid? Maybe I need to find a different brand.
  7. I made three batches just as written. (1/3 cup milk is just right). First batch i over-baked at 30 minutes. (bad move!) 25 minutes is perfect. Be careful, if in doubt, set your timer for less time and watch the color on top. If it starts to turn golden it is done. Don't do shortcuts....make the frosting. This recipe is one of the BEST buttercream recipes EVER. I like it white with sprinkles! mmmmmm!!! Thanks Sisters!!! Everyone at church asked for this recipe!
