Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Batter Blondies

Wow!  That is a mouthful... and these are a delicious, gooey mouthful!

Still a bit warm so falling apart here...

I have been seeing different cake batter recipes all over the blogworld lately and decided to try another one a few days ago.  They are such an easy way to bake... and I was feeling a little lazy today after our 9 mile run and morning's housecleaning....

The recipe comes from a fun blog called Girl Meets Life and you will find it here.  There are lots of variations on the site too, but don't be afraid to play with this yourself.  I think it would be good with almond butter or sunflower butter, Nutella, and also different baking chips or even sprinkles.

I will share the ingredient list with you:
  • one box yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

I didn't have quite the whole cup of chocolate chips this recipe calls for so I used a handful of butterscotch chips to make up the cup... delicious. And I only used 1/2 cup of peanut butter instead of 3/4 cup.  I think white cake mix would be all right too... and I think I will be trying a chocolate versioin at some point!

And it smells soooooo good while its' in the oven baking.  Give it a try.  Easy, delicious, and fun!  I just know it would be great with some vanilla icecream!

If you cut it into 32 pieces (2" X 1"), here is the N.I. as I made it up.

Per serving.

Mix the peanut butter, oil and egg together.

Add to the cake mix and combine as well as you can.

Stir in the milk.

Then add the chocolate/butterscotch chips.

Spread in 8x8 pan coated with non-stick spray and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.

Remove from oven and let cool 60 minutes... this allows the mixture to keep cooking a bit more.

It does fall a bit in the centre as it cools.

Cut into 32 pieces...  they hold together better after refrigeration!  But who can wait?


  1. I may need to add ingredients to my shopping list!

  2. Hey I found your blog now to get the points per serving you could save alot of us WW.
