The Lazy Blogger's Cake Mix Blondies

Hello friends,

I must apologize; I've been so terrible about keeping up with posts lately. I don't know what's come over me...No wait, I do. It's terrible books like Mrs. Dalloway that I am being forced to read, against my will, in the name of Literature.

I will not rant about how terrible it is (though I really want to) but just let you all know to scratch it off your "Must Read List", if it's even on there at all.

Anyway, this will be a quick post because I have something big in the works for April here on the blog. But I can't tell you yet, silly, since it's still March! So to be brief, I tried to think of what I could whip up easily to share with you all today and I had seen all over Pinterest this image of "Cake Batter Blondies."

With only five ingredients and 25 minutes in the oven I was sold. However, I have to tell you, just buy the funfetti cake mix. Do not use yellow cake mix and attempt to put your own sprinkles in, or you will end up with...

Exhibit A: Not so Pretty, Slightly Purple, Cake Batter Blondies

I know, not my most aesthetically pleasing post, but they are pretty darn delicious so I can't really complain. I used this recipe from Six Sister's Stuff, and I am now enjoying (as crumbs drop all over my keyboard) all the awesomeness of cake batter with the dense, chewy texture we've all come to love from brownies.

That's all for now! BUT April is sure to bring something exciting along here On Sugar Mountain, so check back on Sunday April 1st for more info!

Happy Baking!


  1. Honestly...I like the look of yours better! They look more like brownies and less like sheet cake! I really want to try them! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Laura!

      Hope they turn out as good for you as they did for me :D

  2. I'm so happy to see that others occasionally use cake mix too! Occasionally it is fun to doctor them up and see what you come up with! This recipe looks yummy but also tons of fun....I think my boys will love them!

    1. Thanks Baker Becky!

      This would be super fun to do WITH your boys as well and a much smaller mess compared to baking from scratch :D Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

  3. These blondies look so delicious - using cake mix cannot be a bad thing if this blondie is what arises :D
