MSFC hosted The Vagina Monologues yesterday as a fundraiser for the Family Refuge Center, which raises awareness on domestic violence/abuse and also serves as a refuge for individuals in such situations.
As a joint fundraiser, they also decided to try to get donations of canned goods so we could restock the food pantry (which I also happen to volunteer at). Since we weren’t explicitly allowed to sell baked goods, we found a loophole by offering to exchange baked treats for canned goods. Three of us were put in charge of baking up a storm. One covered chocolate chip cookies and brownies, while a friend of mine decided to make cinnamon oatmeal cookies. Just to switch stuff up (and because I was randomly craving cake batter), I decided to be super ambitious and make a ton of things to add to the variety.
However, this took way longer than I expected, quite possibly due to the fact that I worked out my legs the day before and felt broken/didn’t want to move. The recipe was severely adapted from here, and made enough for me to fill 2 loaf pans! I used green/gold for sprinkles since that’s what I had the most of (and they’re technically also our school colors). I cut em’ into 18 little pieces, so a regular serving size would probably be 2 pieces. The macro breakdown is for 1 piece.
Cake Batter Blondies
-1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
-1 tbsp flax seed
-2-3 tbsp water
-1/4 cup vanilla soy milk
-1/4 cup applesauce
-1 tbsp green sugar sprinkles
-1 tbsp gold sprinkles
1) Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line two loaf pans with aluminum foil.
2) Mix the cake mix, oil, flax seed meal, water and soy milk. (The batter will be pretty thick.) Mix in the sprinkles.
3) Put the batter into the prepared loaf pans. use your hands to press down/even it out if necessary.
4) Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy!
