Cake Batter Fudge - 10 Minute Recipe!

yellow cake mix
confectioners’ sugar

Because that’s all you need.

1 cup yellow cake mix + 1 cup confectioners’ sugar in microwave safe bowl (yeah, that means this stuff is not going near a pot or the oven.

Mix ‘em together.

Add 1/2 stick (1/4 cup butter) and 1/4 cup milk. Don’t mix.

I cut up my stick of butter because I decided I could afford the extra 10 seconds of effort. If you can’t, no sweat. Cut another corner. Enjoy.

Place in microwave for 2 minutes. 

Take it out and stir immediately.

Now it looks like cake batter. But sweet. And delicious.

Mix in sprinkles and pour into a greased pan or, as I did, a plastic container. Classy.

Oh, and did I mention that you could do this WITHOUT DAIRY?

This time use margarine and soy milk. Halve the soy milk (1/4 cup margarine, 1/8 cup soy milk).

Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut into squares. 

Congratulations. You have just made cake batter fudge.
All the goodness of sweet fudge without the candy thermometers.
No equipment. No mess. 1 bowl.

B.faB and happy baking...even though there’s no baking this time...

Recipe adapted from girl meets life. 

·                     1 cup yellow cake mix
·                     1 cup confectioners’ sugar
·                     1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter or margarine, cut into small squares
·                     1/4 cup milk or 1/8 cup soy milk
·                     sprinkles (optional)

Mix cake mix and icing sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.

Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not over mix as sprinkle color may bleed.

Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

* Makes one 6 x 6” container, or double for an 8 x 8” pan.
** Notes: If the batter comes out too runny, stir in about 1 tsp or sugar or cake mix at a time until stiff. If too thick to stir in all components, slowly add 1/2 tsp of milk at a time, but batter should be thick!
