  • 1 box vanilla cake mix or make your own with this homemade recipe
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup milk (less is better)
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350º and spray down a baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine the cake mix, vegetable oil and egg in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the milk slowly to the bowl as you mix it, the thicker the cake batter, the better.
  4. Mix in the sprinkles and the white chocolate chips to the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for 25–30 minutes. The edges should be slightly brown.
  6. After baking, remove the pan and allow to cool for 30 more minutes. The center will seem gooey and not done, but it will firm while it cools off.
