I LOVE getting invited over to a friends/family’s place for dinner, drinks, hanging out etc. It’s intimate, you don’t have to be around crazy strangers and you probably wont look at your bank account the next day wondering how you spent all of your rent money in one night (you know you’ve been there). I probably love it the most for that last part ::shrugs::
What I don’t like is when I’m asked to bring dessert! The following conversation usually happens in my head:
“Oh my lord. Why can’t I just bring a bottle of wine? I’m really good at that.”
“I don’t freaking bake! Does the bodega sell desserts?”
“I’ll just pick up Dunkin’ Donuts”
However, I have now found my go to dessert recipe. For now at least: Warning: You might lick your screen
Highlights of this recipe:
- Crazy easy and fun to make. Who says you have to bake from scratch in order for it to be delicious?
- They look pretty and creative
- They are freaking delicious! A little too sweet for me but I still ate about 5!
- You know I love my recipe tips and the originator for this one gave some good ones. I’m pretty sure I would have left them in the oven longer if she didn’t say that they should feel undercooked when they are done. Thank you dear!
- You can also use this as a base for another dessert, like a cake batter blondie sundae!! Oh my lordie!
This recipe is perfect for:
- When you aren’t a baker but your mean friends make you bring dessert and you don’t just want to bring Dunkin Donuts.
- Impressing said friends with your newly acquired baking skills
- When you want to binge on something sweet and be classy about it
- 1 box yellow or vanilla cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 -1/2 cup milk (less is better)
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (my tip: if you don’t want it as sweet, I would make them without this)
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray 11×7 baking pan with nonstick spray.
- Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly. You want to cake batter to be as dense & thick as possible. Mix in the sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Pour into prepared baking pan, sprinkle a few more sprinkles on top, and bake for 25-30 minutes until edges are just turning brown.
- Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes so the center sets, before cutting into squares.
