Hungry for dessert? Got some cake mix in stock? If yes, I assure you that you have come to the right place. If no, I assume you won’t mind sparing a few minutes for tingling those taste buds.
The term cake mix does very little justice to this seemingly magic ingredient whose applications go far beyond making the conventional cake. So I suggest you grab the apron and make yourself one of these mouth-watering dishes of joy. Below are some recipes you will surely be thankful for.
Irish Chocolate Trifle:
Using a regular sized pan, bake 1 package of cake mix according to directions provided behind the pack. Let the setup cool for around an hour.
Poke well-spaced holes (preferably 2 inches apart) using a skewer all over the crust.
Pour a cup of cold Irish crème non-dairy creamer all over the cake and cover it well.
Refrigerate the setup for an hour.
In a sufficiently large bowl, mix 2 packages (around 4oz each) of instant chocolate pudding mix and 3 ½ cups of milk. Let it stand for about 2 min until it starts to soften.
You may now cut the cake into cubes, the size of your choice (1 ½ inch being sufficient).
Now in a 3 qt. glass bowl, layer one-third of the below mentioned:
Cake cubes, pudding mixture and a cup of whipped topping. You can also add candies of your choice to compliment the trifle. Repeat the layers twice and refrigerate them.
You may now open your fridge to a soothing chocolaty-creamy delight.
Piña Colada Cupcakes:
Begin with preheating the oven up to 350 F. Place around 15 paper liners in a muffin pan.
Use one package of French vanilla cake-mix, a cup of unsweetened coconut milk, 2 egg-whites, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large bowl and beat the assembly well.
Put some un-drained, crushed pineapple into prepared pans. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. I personally use a toothpick stuffed inside the cupcake as an indicator. I turn off the oven when the toothpick slides out of the cupcake.
Refrigerate the setup and garnish it with some canned whipped cream or cherries.
Peanut Butter Choco Pies:
Start with preheating the oven to 350 F.
Use a package of cake mix and beat it along with 2/3 cups of water, half cup vegetable oil, and 3 large eggs in a large bowl. Mix the paste with an electric stirrer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Place the batter on baking sheets placed sufficiently apart. Set aside 30 or more cookies. Spread the batter into 2-2.5 inch diameter discs.
Bake for around 8-10minutes before letting it cool off. Take a bowl and beat 1 vanilla flavored frosting along with a cup of creamy flavored peanut butter on medium speed until it starts to look fluffy.
Place half of the cookies with the flat part facing up and spread the peanut butter paste prepared. Use the remaining half of the cookies to complete the sandwiches and there you go. The choco-pies are ready to be crunched.
Creamy cake milkshake:
This is the easiest recipe on this list and barely requires any skills for making but will surely cream up your taste buds.
Take a cup of organic vanilla cake mix. The only thing you might not find is probably a cup full of almond milk. Add in some ice cubes to the cake mix and almond milk mixture. You may also add 2 scoops of protein powder for some proteins and a creamy texture. Add 1 tablespoon of vanilla along with a tablespoon of pure vanilla.
Blend the whole thing completely. Some rainbow sparklers can be added on top to enhance its visual appeal. The creamy shake is now ready to soothe your evening.
Cake mix waffles:
Who doesn’t love waffles! Here’s a fun recipe to blend the creaminess of a cake with the crispiness of waffles.
Take a package of cake mix, oil, water, and eggs in a large bowl and beat thoroughly.
The mixture prepared can now be spread over a waffle iron in suitable amounts. Heat it up for 3 minutes until the aroma of freshly baked waffles arouses your senses.
Serve the ensemble with ice cream atop, garnished with a tinge of your favorite chocolate syrup.
Chocolate chip swirl cake:
Begin with preheating the oven to 350 F. Use a baking pan for the batter. You may spray it with non-stick cooking spray to avoid the dreaded. Prepare 1 package of cake mix as per the directions given.
From the batter, set aside one cup in a small bowl. Add3/4 cup of chocolate chips to the remaining batter and stir well. Add ¼ cup of chocolate syrup to the 1 cup of batter you have previously set aside. Stir the paste well.
Now pour the batter with chocolate chips into a baking pan. Proceed with layering the chocolate syrup batter over the chocolate chip batter in the baking pan.
Using a knife or stirrer, swirl both the layers of batter making S-shaped curves all over the pan.
Don’t mix the layers completely. Make sure the swirling is just enough to let the 2 layers remain distinguishable. The backing can now commence. Insert a toothpick as an indicator and bake the assembly for 35- 40 minutes, till the point the toothpick pops out clean.
Add ¼ cup of chocolate chips to the frosting of your choice. Stir the mixture completely.
When the cake has cooled off, spread the frosting on top and slice it up.
The slices can now be relished with a drizzle of some chocolate syrup.
