Cake Batter Cookies

Hi there! I’m sorry I’ve been so MIA on the blog lately! If you’ve been missing me, make sure to follow along on Instagram (@beccaayre)—I share far too much about my life there!

I have been baking and cooking up a storm lately—fall does it to me! These cookies, however, I make year around. I’m not kidding when I say the following statements: these are the easiest to make….this is my most asked for recipe….these are ADDICTING. And, lastly, it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t give a shout out to my sister because she introduced me to this recipe. She, like my mom, doesn’t like the cook or bake so I sometimes forget this is her recipe because I’ve claimed as my own :).

Cake Batter cookies

Yields – 24 cookies


1 box Duncan Hines Marble Cake Mix (yellow cake mix with chocolate powder packet)*

1/3 cup oil

3 tablespoons + 1 tablespoon water

1 egg

1 cup chocolate chips

*If you can’t find the marble cake mix at the store: use yellow cake mix and for the chocolate packet, you can mix together a few tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder with water.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cake batter—

  1. Mix yellow cake mix, 1/3 cup oil, 3 tablespoons water, & 1 egg together (don’t over mix—you’ll have a few clumps!)
  2. Fold in chocolate chips

Chocolate mix—

  1. In a separate bowl, mix together chocolate packet (from cake mix box) & 1 tablespoon water

Put it all together—

  1. Remove 1/3 of the cake batter mixture and mix it into the chocolate mixture
  2. Once combined, add it back to the cake batter (2/3 that are left) and swirl (don’t over mix!)
  3. Place on pan (I used a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop) and bake for 8-9 minutes. They may look underdone but let them cool and they will harden up!
