Tobins' Tastes: Valentine's Day "Cakies"

Valentine's Day "Cakies"

Not quite cookie, not quite cake.

As you know by now, I am addicted to Pinterest. These "cakies" (cake + cookies) are my new favorite Pinspired (via PlainChicken.com) creation. A clever combo of cookies and cake these treats are amazingly simple and so delicious. I think that I am going to have to adapted the M&M color for every holiday to come. I even doubled the batch in anticipation of how good they would be.



Here is the recipe PlainChicken.com adapted from AllRecipes.com {gotta give credit where credit is due : ) }

M&M Cakies
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix (just the mix, not the other needed ingredients)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 bag M&M's (you can clearly see I went with the Valentines Day theme)
1) Mix together all the ingredients except the M&M's until completely blended and smooth. This took me a little while since the consistency is a little thicker than your normal cake batter.


2.) Stir in M&M's.

3.) Drop by rounded scoops onto a greased or parchment covered baking sheet.


4.) Bake at 350 for nine minutes or until the bottom edges are slightly golden (I know nine seems random but it seemed the perfect time for me)



5.) Let cool for at least 10 minutes before trying to eat or they will be very crumbly when you try to pick them up. Believe me, Justin tried.




Enjoy!
And if you love this you can always Pin it : )
