Cake Batter Fudge (reader recipe)
Author: Shawna Griffith (adapted from Baked from a Box blog)
  • 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)
  1. Mix cake mix and icing sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not over-mix as sprinkle colour may bleed.
  3. Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  4. * Makes one 6 x 6” container, or double for an 8 x 8” pan.
  5. ** 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!
  6. Dairy-Free version:
  7. Oh, and did I mention that you could do this WITHOUT DAIRY?
  8. This time use margarine and soy milk. Half the soy milk (1/4 cup margarine, 1/8 cup soy milk).
