It may be cold and rainy here in Boston but my apartment smells like cake batter and that’s what really matters (am I right?). Rarely do I stop what I’m doing to run, literally, to the grocery store. But guys, these did it. Cake and rainbow sprinkles? Yes, please. To boxed mixes everywhere: you don’t know you’re beautiful.

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cake mix and sprinkles in a large bowl, then mix in the oil and egg. Add the milk slowly just until the batter is combined – you want it to remain as dense as possible. Place better in a greased 8×8 pan or 8-inch cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or just until the edges turn golden. Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting because the gooey center needs to set. The result will be a decadent, cake-batter texture.
