A bowl of cake batter should be neverending. Whenever I bake a cake, I try to save as much as the batter as possible for myself. And sure, I admit that sometimes I whip up a batch of cake batter, and before the oven even gets preheated, half of the bowl disappears. Cake batter is a sure favorite of mine, and another favorite sweet treat of mine are milkshakes. Nothing solves a craving for sweets like a thick, creamy milkshake.
One rainy afternoon, a light bulb went off above my head. I decided to top a bowl of ice cream off with come cake batter. (Healthy, I know.) The result was delicious, so I decided to take it a little further. After some Internet and cookbook research, I came up with a milkshake recipe that combined both sweet treats deliciously.
The sweet taste of the milkshake combines the rich texture of ice cream and the delicious flavor of cake batter. They are a wonderful hit among friends and a perfect addition to any special day.
The recipe is simple and easy to whip up in no time at all. For each milkshake below, combine 2 cups of cake batter, 2 cups of ice cream, and 2 cups of milk. Each recipe has a little variation that makes it unique.
(Note: If you’re worried about consuming raw eggs in the cake batter, your local supermarket is sure to have at least one type of egg replacer. These egg alternatives perfectly mimic eggs’ role in recipes, but egg replacers are healthier than real eggs and allow you to eat the raw batter without any worries. Best of all, they will not change the taste of your delicious milkshakes! And if you want an even healthier option, feel free to substitute skim milk and frozen yogurt.)
Funfetti Cake Batter Milkshake
With a fun and festive look, this milkshake is colorful and mouth-wateringly delicious. In a blender, combine two cups of cake batter, two cups of vanilla ice cream, and two cups of milk. Blend until the mixture is creamy has achieved the desired thickness. Adjust the milkshake to your liking by adding more milk (for a thinner shake) or more ice cream (for a thicker shake). For decoration, add some rainbow jimmies or sprinkles to the glass or around the top of the rim. By dipping the glass into water, the sprinkles will stick to the edges of the glass.
Devil’s Food Cake Batter Milkshake
A chocolate lover’s dream, this milkshake offers creamy cake batter taste with a rich, chocolatey aftertaste. In a blender, combine two cups of chocolate cake batter, two cups of chocolate ice cream, and two cups of milk. For a less intense (but equally delicious) chocolate flavor, use vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake Batter Milkshake
Full of fruity deliciousness, this milkshake defines the classic buttery rich and caramel pineapple dessert. In a blender, combine two cups of yellow or pineapple cake batter, a cup of fresh or canned pineapples, two cups of vanilla ice cream, and two cups of milk. For decoration, top the milkshake off with a few pineapple chunks or cherries.
Serve the milkshakes immediately. Enjoy!
