Cake Batter Cookies

When I worked at Cold Stone Creamery one summer, I discovered their amazing cake batter ice cream. My favorite creation was their Birthday Cake Remix which is cake batter ice cream with rainbow sprinkles, brownie and fudge. This cookie reminds me of that delicious creation from Cold Stone.


Try this cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or use it to make the perfect ice cream sandwich! When you are craving for cake and don’t have time to bake an entire one, make this as a substitute. It’s super quick and easy!

  1. I was just curious as to how this recipe doesn’t make the cookie rise like a normal cake since cake mix is used. Also, what kind of cake mix is recommended, the one with all the ingredients in it, or those leaving out eggs and butter etc? Thanks! x

      Cake mix typically calls for 3 eggs, more vegetable oil, and water. This recipe does not require the same ingredients. Lowering the proportion of wet ingredients and eggs to flour results in a more dry texture like a cookie instead of a cake. I recommend using Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix and leaving out the ingredients listed on the box and adding the ingredients mentioned above.
