Sinful Saturday: How to Make Cookies With Cake Mix

It is that time of the week again! Yes, Sinful Saturdays. Saturdays have become my favorite day of the week. I can sleep in (which for me means until 8am), the days are warmer so days out with the kiddos are great, this is the one day of the week I can take off from exercise, and it is also the only day of the week I allow myself to indulge in eating without guilt.

During the week I always make a list of the sinful pleasure I will enjoy on Saturday. Of course, when Saturday arrives I don't have enough time in the day to enjoy ALL of my favorites.So I normally end of narrowing it down to one or two.

Since I am still exhausted from celebrating a friends birthday last night I did not want to put a lot of time into baking. Truthfully, I did not want to bake at all. However, I wanted to enjoy some time with my three favorite little people. Hummmmm....I had to think of something that was quick and easy...and then I remembered this Cake Mix Cookie recipe by my kitchen savior (Monique) from Yes, Divas Can Cook!

To be honest, I was a little leery of eating cookies made from cake mix. It just seems wrong! But what the hey, the recipe had everything I was asking for....quick, easy, sweet, and kid friendly.

I actually burned the second batch because I was distracted by my 1 year old, and of course my kiddos still loved them!


1 box of cake mix (any flavor)
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup of add-ins (candy, morsels, nuts, etc.) *optional*

 Again, please ignore the date on these pics, these were taken today. I really need to just remove the date.

Preheat oven to 350

Combine all ingredients

Add optional "add-in"if you are using...
My daughter decided to use pink sprinkles from Valentines day
it turned our Lemon mix batter orange

Mix until combined...

 Place spoonfuls of batter on an non-greased cookie sheet...
(I don't own a nice cookie sheet so I just used foil, coated lightly with cooking spray)

Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

We love to make Cake Mix Cookies. We use a stick of butter instead of oil. The lemon ones are the BEST!
