Cake Batter Milkshake*


Don’t even start. I know what you are going to say. “Jessica, is this seriously another CAKE BATTER FLAVORED THING?! Haven’t we had enough already?!” — that was supposed to be you, by the way. I also imagine you saying it in a super whiny voice.

The answer is no, there is NEVER enough cake batter flavored things. It’s like my second favorite flavor ever (second only to sugar, in general). Now with this milkshake, we can have a big cake batter party. We will have Cake Batter Truffles for our appetizer. Cake Batter Martinis for dinner. Cake Batter Milkshakes for dessert…and then we will head over and have Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls and Cake Batter Pancakes for breakfast.

I might have to have us all removed from the house with a crane, but it will be soooo worth it.

This milkshake could not be any easier. Seriously. Got a blender? You are already half way there!

I honestly don’t know which is more dangerous…having a half used box of cake mix in my pantry or knowing that it only takes me 3 minutes to whip up another bath of these babies. If you don’t hear from me in a week, please send the crane.

Cake Batter Milkshake

Yield: 1 large milkshake

I like to use the "creamy" homemade vanilla ice cream types because you have to use less milk! More Ice Cream = More Better!

Ingredients:

4 large scoops Vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup yellow cake mix
splash of milk
sprinkles for garnish

Directions:

In a blender, combine all ingredients (except for sprinkles). Blend until well combined, serve immediately.

For sprinkle edges: rub a thin layer of corn syrup on the rim of your glass and dip in colorful sprinkles!

    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — October 23, 2012 @ 3:19 pm

    Aww, it’s so colorful! I love it. I don’t know why, but when I read and reread the ingredient list, I thought, “Isn’t half a cake mix a little much for one milkshake?” It seriously took me about 6 times to realize that it said 1/2 cup. So yay, 1/2 cup! Much better than 1/2 box. :)

    The words “too much” and “cake batter” do not compute. There is no such thing as too much cake batter anything!!

    My friend and I tried a few variations on this, and adding cocoa powder, nutella, or even a bit of spice improved the shake by adding in another flavor. Of course, the original is wonderful too. :)

    Would Vanilla Bean Ice-Cream work, or does it have to be just plain vanilla?

      Vanilla Bean Ice Cream would be just as good. ;-)
