Cake Batter Milkshake Recipe

Cake Batter Is One Of My Favorite Milkshake Flavors

Don’t even start. I know what you are going to say. “Jessica, is this seriously another CAKE BATTER FLAVORED THING?! Haven’t we had enough already?!” — that was supposed to be you, by the way. I also imagine you saying it in a super whiny voice.

The answer is no, there is NEVER enough cake batter flavored things. It’s like my second favorite flavor ever (second only to sugar, in general). Now with this milkshake, we can have a big cake batter party. We will have Cake Batter Truffles for our appetizer. Cake Batter Martinis for dinner. Cake Batter Milkshakes for dessert…and then we will head over and have Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls and Cake Batter Pancakes for breakfast.

I might have to have us all removed from the house with a crane, but it will be soooo worth it.

Is This Milkshake Recipe Easy To Make?

This milkshake could not be any easier. Seriously. Got a blender? You are already half way there!

I honestly don’t know which is more dangerous…having a half used box of cake mix in my pantry or knowing that it only takes me 3 minutes to whip up another bath of these babies. If you don’t hear from me in a week, please send the crane.

Yield: 1 large milkshake

    Hey! This sounds so good, and you could make it with Almond milk and frozen yogurt and cut back on some calories. You have inspired me with this….Thank-you for your wonderful blog! Take care! Terri πŸ™‚

    My friend and I tried a few variations on this, and adding cocoa powder, nutella, or even a bit of spice improved the shake by adding in another flavor. Of course, the original is wonderful too. πŸ™‚

    “Whoa!” That’s exactly what I said when I saw that picture of the shake. Those circle sprinkles are super adorable!

  7. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    The words “too much” and “cake batter” do not compute. There is no such thing as too much cake batter anything!!

  8. Erin @ Texanerin Baking

    Aww, it’s so colorful! I love it. I don’t know why, but when I read and reread the ingredient list, I thought, “Isn’t half a cake mix a little much for one milkshake?” It seriously took me about 6 times to realize that it said 1/2 cup. So yay, 1/2 cup! Much better than 1/2 box. πŸ™‚

  9. Tom Gong

    Wow, I think I would almost prefer this over an actual birthday cake. This sounds amazing. Cannot wait to try it!

  10. Alaina @ Fabtastic Eats
