Making Cookies With Cake Mix

When making cookies with cake mixes, do you follow the cake mix directions before you add the butter and egg? I never bake so I just don't know. I was not able to drop the cookies. I just added the butter and egg, but they are a little too hard. Thank you.

Forget the cake directions. Just follow the cookie directions. Take mix and add egg and melted butter or whatever it says. Cookie batter usually is hard. The oven will heat it and melt it flat. Use 2 spoons. One to scoop and another to scrape it off (to drop). Good luck. (05/14/2009)

The easiest cake mix cookie recipe I know is this:

  • 1 cake mix
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients well until smooth, thick batter forms. Stir in nuts, chocolate chips, etc. if wanted.
Drop by spoonfuls on greased/Pam sprayed cookie sheets. Bake at 350F degrees for 12 - 15 minutes. Yields about 4 dozen cookies. Bake until barely brown for soft cookies.

Some combinations I have tried are white cake/almonds or walnuts or white chocolate chips, chocolate cake/chocolate chips, yellow cake/toffee or butterscotch chips, yellow cake/1/2 cup oatmeal and 1/2 cup raisins.


I just used a funfetti cake mix with no additions, and it made nice sugar cookies with the colored sprinkles throughout them.

Making Cookies With Cake Mix

I make cake mix cookies all the time. I use:

  • one box of dry cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick melted margarine
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake about 8 minutes. Any flavor cake mix can be used and you can add nuts, chips, or anything else you'd like. (05/16/2009)
