How to make Cake Cookies
There’s really nothing to this recipe. Simply gather your cake mix, egg, water, oil, and sprinkles together. Mix them all up in a bowl until just incorporated. Use a Funfetti cake mix instead of a plain white cake mix forgo adding the extra sprinkles. Win!
Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake them for 9-10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool the cookies for a bit on the baking sheet and then transfer them to a wire rack.
Then watch them disappear! These simple cake cookies are by far a favorite cookie in our house!
