When you read the title – cake mix chocolate chip cookies, some of you might think, cookies from cake mix..? What…? I too had the same thought until I tasted one. So, this the first post which uses the homemade and easy dry yellow cake mix.
As you know, chocolate Madeleine is the one in the series of “kids snack” series, which features kids favorite baked goodies. The funny thing is that, I made these cake mix cookies for Rydhi’s school snack; we couldn’t resist ourselves from taking it and so are you. Though this can be considered to be in the family of chocolate chip cookies, this is different breed for sure. Custard powder butter cookies are also our favorite. Stained glass almond cookies are a little fancier version.
The cookie dough looks like this
This recipe is from sally’s baking addiction. I already made this two times and I’m sure I’ll make them again. These are soft, chewy and give you a different experience of cookies.
The dropped cookie dough to be rolled into balls
- 1 ¼ cups/190 g of dry yellow cake mix
- 1¼ cups/ 160g of all purpose flour
- 11/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ½ cup/ 100 g of granulated white sugar
- ½ cup/ 100 g of light brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda
- ¾ cup/ (11/2 sticks or 170 g) of butter
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup/ 90 g of semi sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup/ 90 g of white chocolate chips
- ½ cup/ 90g of sprinkles
- Sift the dry ingredients together- flour, cake mix baking soda.
- With a stand mixer or handheld beater fitted with paddle attachment, beat the butter, white sugar, brown sugar on medium speed until it turns creamy.
- Now add egg and vanilla extract. Beat again on medium speed for 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl.
- Add dry ingredients to the butter mixer step by step beating on low speed until just combined.
- With a large wooden spoon or spatula, fold semi sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and sprinkles.
- Cover with a plastic wrap and chill it for 2 hours.
- Take the chilled dough from refrigerator and let it rest in room temperature for 10 minutes, so that it will soften lightly.
- Preheat your oven to 350 0F. Prepare two large baking sheets lined with butter paper or parchment paper or silicon mats.
- Drop 1½ tablespoons of dough in the silicon mat or parchment paper placed 3 inch apart. Roll each portion into balls (dough balls should look taller and not wide).
- Bake each batch for 10 to 12 minutes until edges are slightly browned.
- The cookies will look under baked. But that’s OK.
- Take them out from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes in the baking sheet itself.
- Let the entire cookies cool completely and serve.
It will last for 7 days
