Sprinkle Cake Batter Cookies literally only has SIX ingredients in the recipe, that’s right, only six ingredients….a cake mix, baking powder, oil, eggs, vanilla and sprinkles….that’s it! These come together quickly and bake super quick.
I chose to post these at Christmas time because I know a lot of people struggle to find time to get everything done for the holidays. So, if you need a quick treat for a get together, your child’s school treat, cookie’s for Santa or you want to bake cookie’s with your kids, here is a quick and easy recipe for you to try.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- ½ cup red/green nonpareil sprinkles (or colored sprinkles of your choice)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk or sift together the cake mix and baking powder and set aside. In your mixer, mix together the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add the cake mixture and form a dough- mix vigorously until all of the pockets of dry cake mix are gone. By hand, gently mix in the sprinkles - you do not want the color of the sprinkles to color the cookie dough by over mixing.
- Form rounded 1-inch balls of dough and place on the cookie sheets. Bake for 9 minutes, do not overbake and let the cookies get brown. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 1 minute and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container, for up to one week or store in a freezer for the holiday season.
