Cake Batter Fudge

This really does taste like fudge.

I must admit that I was a little sceptical over whether this recipe would work, but it does 🙂 The little bites taste of vanilla with just a hint of cake flavour. They aren’t too sweet either, which I find can sometimes be the case with fudge.

You can use any type of cake mix for this. If you use plain butter or yellow cake mix then just add a little vanilla before microwaving. Chocolate mix would also work, but the sprinkles might not show up quite as well.

Some of these wrapped in cellophane would make an ideal holiday gift. Use red and green sprinkles, or gold/silver, for a particularly festive look.

If you want to eat them yourself, they will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.

I adapted a recipe which I found via Pinterest.

Ingredients – makes a lot of bite-sized pieces (about 60):

  • 1 packet (340g/12 oz) vanilla cake mix
  • 1 and 1/2 cups icing (powdered) sugar, sieved
  • 115g/4 oz unsalted butter, diced
  • 100g/3.5 oz white chocolate buttons
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles of your choice


  • Line a 20cm/8 inch square pan with baking paper.
  • Put the cake mix and icing sugar into a medium microwave-safe bowl. Stir.
  • Make a well in the centre of the mix and drop in the butter and white chocolate – do not stir.
  • Pour the milk over the butter and chocolate – do not stir.
  • Microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Stir to mix. The resulting batter will be very thick.
  • Gently fold in the sprinkles – don’t stir too much or the colour will bleed into the batter.
  • Tip into the prepared pan and level the surface using the back of your spoon.
  • Refrigerate for a couple of hours, or overnight, until set.
  • Cut into little squares (about 1cm/0.5 inch). You don’t want big pieces as the fudge is dense.
  • Serve and enjoy!
