A few weeks ago, whilst I was tidying around in my kitchen, I came across a Betty Crocker cake mix in the cupboard that we had been given a while ago, and since I’m always looking for an excuse to bake – although we wouldn’t eat a whole cake to ourselves, nor did I have the necessary things for making cupcakes with the mix – I decided to try a little experiment as I was never going to use the mix for anything.
1 Betty Crocker cake mix (I used the vanilla cake mix – as that was the one that was lying around in my cupboard – but I’m sure they would turn out just as delicious with any flavour cake mix)
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
180 ml water
3 medium free range eggs
(The three additional ingredients are as listed on the back of your cake mix box. As all flavours of Betty Crocker and brands vary.)
Optional add: 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Follow the instructions on the back on the Betty Crocker box and whisk all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Now, the mix will obviously be very gooey as it’s not made to be a cookie mix, but I put my mix into the fridge for 30 minutes which made the mix more thicker and easier to handle.
Using a tablespoon (with the help of a teaspoon) place dollops of the mix onto a greased baking tray like you would with cookies. Cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown, and let them cool down before eating.
These were a huge success in my house, I think I managed to get about two of the finished batch as my husband couldn’t keep his hands off of them! So if you have a Betty Crocker cake mix (or any kind of cake mix) lying around in your house, you should definitely try this!
