Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Print Friendly

These are the easiest cookies I have ever made!  We loved the sweet taste from the cake batter (I am one of those people that would lick the bowl and beaters after my mom would make a cake). This is definitely a good recipe to keep on hand when you need a quick treat!

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Recipe from Stephanie Cooks)
1 (18.25 oz.) box cake mix (I used yellow, but you can use any kind you have!)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chipsDirections: 
1- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2-In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs and oil, then mix until well blended. (It was a bit crumbly for me so I used my hands to really mix it well- it's not as smooth as typical dough.)
 3-Stir in chocolate chips, or your choice of additions. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
4- Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

    I just made these with a yellow cake mix and added chocolate and peanut butter morsels (with the help of my 2 boys, ages 9 and 6). They were super easy, even for someone that cooks most entrees in the microwave. They seem homemade, from scratch! Even my hubby, who has worked as a professional sous chef, agreed! I cannot wait to try more recipes!

    Do you think it would help to chill the dough before placing on the cookie sheet and baking? I know that’s a useful trick with regular cookie dough. I didn’t know if it would matter when using cake batter. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    We made these for Christmas Eve and Christmas family celebrations this past weekend. My husband made a red velvet and chocolate chip batch of cookies and I made yellow cake and M&Ms…both were equally tasty! The red velvet didn’t taste like red velvet if you’re wondering. We wished we had white choc chips for them. Also, I chilled my dough/batter before baking (my hubby did not) and it didn’t make a difference in how it turned out. You do need to make sure you space it out enough…they are good size cookies if you use a small scoop size.

  4. I just made a version of these cookies using Betty Crocker’s Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix. I shouldn’t have been surprised to see cake mixes have reduced in size along with everything else at the grocery store. The box I bought was 15.25 oz. So I used 1/3 cup of oil instead of 1/2 cup and the 2 eggs as called for, but I probably could have used the full 1/2 cup oil. My dough was quite thick. I also added 1 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips and 1 cup mini semi-sweet chips. Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, I got 40 cookies from this batch and they are DELICIOUS!!! I was a bit skeptical going in but I am sold on this idea! Do you think I could sub 1/2 cup of butter for the oil?

      We have another cookie that is similar with a cake mix and we use butter instead of oil for that one. So I would say yes. Just have it softened at room temperature. Good Luck! -The Six Sisters
      **Let us know how they turn out!

    How many cookies did you get from 1 box of cake mix? Obviously depending on scoop size, but any ideas of how many would be really helpful.
