Cake Batter Blondies

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.
