Hi everyone! I’m Ashlyn from Belle of the Kitchen and I’m back again for a special birthday edition of Ideas for the Kitchen! Carrie and I both have birthdays to celebrate this month and we thought it would be fun to share party-worthy recipes with all of you! Today I’m sharing some Cake Batter Bars, which are chock-full of sprinkles and delicious birthday cake flavor. They are one of my family’s favorite sweet treats!
If you’re looking for Carrie, you can find her over on my blog today where she’s sharing her recipe for S’mores Chocolate Fudge Cake. She’ll be sharing it here on Kenarry in a couple of weeks, but if you want to go ahead and take a peek, you can visit Belle of the Kitchen to check it out!
Carrie and I were pretty excited to discover that we both have March birthdays, which shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise since we seem to have quite a bit in common already! 🙂 We decided to celebrate with all of you by sharing birthday themed recipes, and I jumped at the opportunity to make something cake batter flavored.
When I was in college, our dormitory was within walking distance to a lot of great restaurants, shops, etc. Sometimes after eating dinner either at the dining hall or downtown, my friends and I would stop at Cold Stone Creamery for a little treat. I tried out the cake batter ice cream one day, and that’s where the love affair with all things cake batter began.
If you, too, enjoy the flavor of cake batter, then you are going to love these Cake Batter Bars! They are the epitome of fun, since they are full of colorful sprinkles, plus they are just downright delicious. I make these with coconut oil, which gives them a wonderful texture and flavor. I have to immediately give away about half of the pan every time I make these, or else my husband and I are bound to plow through the entire thing within a 24 hour period. I wish I was kidding!
These would make a perfect birthday dessert for packing in your kiddo’s lunch, or for taking to school for class treats! Honestly, they make for a great anytime treat, birthday related or not, and I hope you enjoy them! Be sure to share any of your favorite birthday recipes with Carrie and me below! We would love to hear your ideas. 🙂
