carrot-cakie6I bet you are doing the same thing? What the heck is a cakie?
I sat down at the kitchen table the other morning and right there in front of me was this delicious looking thing called a cakie. Seems like a couple of teens were in the kitchen baking up a storm and surprised the mother with these little treats. Mom is a writer for the paper so she published an article on CAKIES.

Here is how it works.
You take any old cake mix. Add 1/3 cup of butter and 3 eggs. Stir it up, drop them on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

That’s it.
Simple enough right?
Well on hand I happened to have a Decadent Classic Carrot mix from Duncan Hines. So that was what I used. ONLY since I seldom follow rules exactly I figured adding 1/2 cup of toasted coconut, and 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans would only make this cakie better. The mix already had shredded carrots and raisins.

I kid you not I’m in love with a new cakie, thingy.
I am in love with any recipe that is uber simple and over the top delicious. The second being an absolute must in order to get a second chance.

These came out of the oven a little crispy on the outside and sort of chewy soft in the center. My husband who thinks my persimmon cookies are the best cookie on earth says this cookie is a close second. HE IS INDEED RIGHT!

Stop and think about the possibilities. Literally no measuring a teaspoon of this and a tablespoon of that. A simple box cake, eggs and butter.

Next I tried a key lime cake by Betty Crocker. To that I added 1/2 cup chopped pistachios and then frosted them green. Yummie good but not as good as the Carrot Cakie.

Next time you want a quick cookie treat try a cakie for yourself :)
