Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

Just have to share this good news....

I went to a Taste of Home Cooking School last night.  I took 3 girlfriends along and we had a great time.  I won one of the door prizes - 5 Ortega Mexican products (Mexican is my favorite cuisine!) and my girlfriend right next to me won a bag of food stuff from Emeril....AND...she won the grand prize too - a $200 grocery card.


We both had our pictures taken for the newspaper - exciting stuff!


This is another fun recipe I baked to be used for a prison ministry.
I found this to be an interesting recipe and very tasty!

Not to mention pretty! (& Easter-y?)

Happy to have found it at Chef in Training.  I'm intrigued with all ideas she shares for adding cake mix to yummy recipes.

So if you're wondering what to do with the rest of your cake mix, after adding 3/4 c. to this recipe, she'll give you plenty more

No Bake Cake Batter Truffles...Cake Batter Pancakes...Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats...Cake Batter Blondies. Please stop by and check out her wonderful recipes.


You could probably use Funfetti cake mix instead of yellow and already have the sprinkles added?

These were fun to make and attractive too.

Hope you'll give them a'll be glad you did!


1-1/2 sticks butter (3/4 c.)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1 (3 ozs) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix, dry
(I used coconut cream)
3/4 c. yellow cake mix, dry
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
2-1/4 c. flour
(I didn't add quite all of it)
1/2 tsp. salt
colored sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease cookie sheet.

In large bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Mix flour, salt and baking soda then add to butter mixture.

Add pudding and (3/4 c.) cake mix; beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until smooth.  Add flour mixture slowly until well blended.

(I stirred in the last cupful by hand - I use a hand mixer).
Mix in sprinkles.  Roll into 1" balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes.

Yield: about 3 dozen

They don't spread a lot so I put about 15 per cookie sheet.
