This Cake mix cookies are such a simple and tasty recipe with only 3 ingredients! Customize this recipe with your favorite flavor and blends.
We have shared some different biscuits with cake mix, such as: Strawberry Cookies, Chocolate mint cookies and sticky red velvet cookies, but I thought it was time to share the original recipe. The possibilities are endless, depending on the taste of the cake mix used!
Now I'm not sure who the original creator is, but I first saw this recipe in a church cookbook that I received many years ago, and I've made many different variations since then. These cake cookies are great when you need to prepare something quickly and don't have many ingredients on hand. I don't cognize anything about you, but I pretty much always have a box of cake mix, oil, and eggs on hand.
These cookies are soft, fluffy and delicious. I love how many different variations you can easily make. Plus, they're so simple that you literally can't mess them up. My kids love to make them too. You are always a enormous hit!
3 simple ingredients
This recipe only requires 3 ingredients (which you probably already have on hand!). Seriously, this is the easiest dessert to whip and great for the kids to help with.
- Cake mix: Use 1 box of cake mix (any flavor you want). Check out some of my favorite variations below.
- oil: Vegetable oil is top in this recipe. You need half a cup.
- Eggs: Add 2 large eggs.
Feel free to complete additional mix-ins such as M & Ms, chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles or candy pieces.
How to make biscuits from cake mix
The printable recipe and video tutorial can be found below.
- Mix the ingredients together until the dough is smooth.
- Then add additional mix-ins if you'd like.
- I also like to cool the dough in the fridge so that I can work with it more easily.
- Then bake at 350 ° F for 9 to 11 minutes until the biscuits are firm!
Keep the dough in the fridge
Due to the oil, the dough is usually a bit stickier than a typical biscuit dough. I therefore recommend cooling the dough for about 30 minutes so that it is easier to process.
You definitely don't want these cookies to brown in the oven. Let them bake for about 10 minutes or until firm. You want them to have a soft texture. To avoid the bottom from browning, line your pan with parchment paper.
Freeze all the extras
These cookies freeze beautifully. If you have extras, let them cool completely after baking. Then place on a baking sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes. If they are difficult, put the cookies in a freezer or bag and freeze them for up to 3 months. To defrost, take out of the freezer approx. 2 hours before eating.
You can use pretty much any flavor of the cake mix to make these cookies. Feel free to add your favorite mix-ins or dip in chocolate. Here are some of my favorites.
- Red velvet white chocolate chip: If you are a fan of red velvet cake, you will love this version! The red velvet taste is wealthy and delicious and the white chocolate chips give it a sweet note. Plus the contrast of the red and white colors looks so pretty!
- M & M: You can use a white or yellow cake mix for this variant. The M & Ms are fun, colorful, and add a delicious hint of chocolate. You can also do this with chocolate cake mix. Both versions are delicious. My kids love this!
- Devil's meal with Rolos: If you are a chocolate lover, this one Rolo cookies are great for you! The chocolate taste paired with the sticky caramel inside is a heavenly game! The rolo in the middle is such a kind surprise.
- Strawberry dipped in chocolate: I made a version of it Strawberry Cookies for valentine's day and they were so festive and delicious! I even added a couple of pink and red heart shaped sprinkles. They are super soft, full of strawberry flavor and especially dipped in chocolate!

- 15.25 ounce Box cake mix
- 1/2 Cup Vegetable oil
- 2nd Big eggs
Optional mix-ins: chocolate chips, M & Ms, Rolos, etc.
Preheat the oven to 350 ° F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set aside.
Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir together until combined. If you have time, cool the dough for 15 to 20 minutes (this will make the job a small easier because it's sticky).
Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mat with a medium shovel or spoon. Bake 9-11 minutes or until the cookies are set. You don't want them to tan. Let the pan cool for a few minutes and then put it on a cooling shelf.
Dip in chocolate: After cooling, melt the chocolate and then dip half of the biscuit into the chocolate. Place the biscuits on wax paper and sprinkle them over them if necessary.
