Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

My today’s post is dedicated to all the sprinkle lovers out there!

By the love for sprinkles, we unite!

This time I made you a cake mix cookie.

Cake mixes are so handful when you are making cake batter flavored desserts. But of course it is just *not* the same thing as making something from the scratch!

So if you are not a fan of cake mix, make my Sprinkle Sugar Monster Cookie (from scratch!!!) instead of today’s recipe. 😉

But hey… let me warn you, if you do not try these cake mix cookies, you are seriously missing out on some heavenly stuff! Its not a one bit cakey! In fact, it is so soft that it melts in your mouth.

I loved using cake mix for this recipe because it made my job so much easy. These babies were ready in under 20 minutes. That’s it! Don’t believe me? Okay, go ahead.. Read on… 😀

Seriously, it will make you think HOW on EARTH something so good (or should I say sprinkly!!!) can start from a box! Oh well,it does! 🙂

The dough comes together easily by hand. No mixing required. No extra clean-up required! Woohooo…. All you need is a bit of elbow grease to mix all the ingredients.

And to give it a ‘healthifying twist’, you can skip the oil from recipe and add low-fat yogurt to it! And voila… you will have a light ‘fudgy’ cookie!

So let’s get you started right away!

Makes 8-9 thick HUGE cookies


  • 1 box (250 gm) vanilla cake mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Vanilla)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 and 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles (combo of long thin and tiny balls sprinkles)


Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Add the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to form a dough- stir vigorously until all the pockets of dry cake mix are gone. Gently mix-in the sprinkles- do not overmix or it will dye the cookie dough.

Using an icecream scoop, scoop cookie dough onto baking sheet, about 1 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 9 minutes.

Allow to cool on baking sheet for 3-4 minutes.

They will be very soft at first. As they cool, the tops will settle down so you will not have to press them down yourself. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container up to 4 days.
