Vanilla Cake Sprinkle Cookies

After making the vanilla chai cinnamon rolls, I found myself with half a box of vanilla cake mix and no idea what to do with it. So the first place I went to get ideas was the internet – specifically Pinterest (that website is amazing).

I cam across this easy and yummy looking vanilla cake sprinkle cookies recipe, courtesy of Danielle from Live Well Bake Often.


  • 1 16.25oz. box cake mix*
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. sprinkles

As you can see the recipe calls for a whole box of the cake mix. I, however, just cut the recipe in half to work with the half box of cake mix that I had on hand. They turned out fine!



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, oil, and eggs. Once combined, mix in the sprinkles.
  3. Drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet, about two tablespoons for each cookie.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.

Sounds easy right? They totally were! They kind of remind of a sugar cookie, but obviously a little more cakey. Since I cannot resist cookies or sugar in general, I enjoyed making and then eating these.

Do you have any recipes that work with a box or half a box of cake mix? Let me know in the comments!
