Cake mix bars

Last weekend when Traci, Summer, and I got together to do some crafting, I needed something easy to throw together for us to snack on. I knew I wanted to bring a quick and easy bar recipe. I had a few cake mixes just sitting in my cupboard and have seen many cake mix recipes floating around pinterest.  I did a quick google search for cake mix bars and found this recipe. Simple and easy!

Slightly adapted from Lovin' in the Oven
  • 1 1/4 cup funfetti cake mix

  • 3/4 cup AP flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

    1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan.
    2. Cream both sugars, butter, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. 
    3. Gradually mix in flour, cake mix, and baking soda until just mixed.
    4. Spread batter evenly into greased pan.
    5. Bake for 28-30 minutes until top is lightly browned and middle still jiggles slightly. Cool completely before cutting.
