Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondies

Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondiesoreo cake batter blondie-8You’ve seen the original.  And today, I bring you a cookies n’ cream, Golden Oreo version of my cake batter blondies. Sweet vanilla Oreos chopped up and smothered all over the original cake batter blondies. Dare I say I may even like these better than the original version? 😉

The vanilla Oreo wafers crushed & chopped up pair wonderfully with the gooey buttery yellow cake mix.  The best bites are the ones with the sweet Oreo cream filling chunks, though.  I bought double stuffed Golden Oreos because well…. the cream is just the best part.

What is so awesomely amazing about these and the original cake batter blondies is that it is hardly a recipe.  A non-recipe recipe, if you will.

1 box of yellow cake, oil, a splash of milk, 1 egg, sprinkles, & white chocolate chips.  Today’s Golden Oreo version?  Just throw in a ton of crushed Golden Oreos instead of white chocolate chips (or add both!).  There. You’re done.  30 minutes later and you’ll be in golden-oreo-goodness-cake-batter-heaven. Bonus!  You can make these blondies in only 1 bowl.  Because who actually likes to do the dishes?!

You’re going to adore these. 🙂


Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondies

  • Author: Sally
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
  • Yield: 24 blondies
  • Category: Bars
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American


These easy cake batter blondies are loaded with Golden Oreos and sprinkles!


  • 1 standard size box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/31/2 cup milk (less is better for a dense texture)
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped Golden Oreos (reserve a handful to sprinkle on top)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray 11×7 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly. You want the cake batter to be as dense & thick as possible. Fold in the chopped Golden Oreo pieces and sprinkles.
  3. Pour into prepared baking pan, sprinkle a few more sprinkles and crushed Oreos on top, and bake for 25-30 minutes until edges are just turning brown. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes so the center sets, before cutting into squares.

  1. Hi Dora! unfortunately, I am not sure what a good substitute for the cake mix would be. It is the cake mix powder and the certain measurements of the other ingredients that makes this recipe. Let me know if you try anything!

  2. Sally, I just saw red white and blue Golden Oreos at the grocery today. They’re called “American Creme”. I thought you would have a good time with those and patriotic sprinkles!

  3. I just came across your website and I absolutely love it! Your recipes are great, I can’t wait to try some out! 🙂

      1. You are very welcome! I subscribed to your blog and can’t wait to see what you create next! Thank you for checking my blog out, I really appreciate it! 🙂

  4. These look amazing I have them in the oven now I can’t wait to try, I might have added too many oreos though…if theres such thing lol

  5. Just wanted to add here, I made these last weekend for my 2 year old niece’s visit.

    She started eating and looked at me and said “Auntie Terdy, I luv this.” – She can’t pronounce my name, and that’s the first time I’ve ever heard her say ‘love’. It was the cutest thing ever – almost started tearing up.

    I also loved them – so much so that when I tried taking them to work the next day, I ended up hoarding them to myself. They were amazing!

    And you’re so right – Golden Oreo’s are AMAZING, so much better than the choco kind.


  6. Hey sally, this looks amazing!!!!! So my yellow cake mix has different amounts of oil, and egg. it also has water. So should i follow your amounts of oil and egg and still put the water or follow the yellow cake mix. Please tell me asap want to make this tuesday for my friends….

    1. SO glad you are making these for your friends! Do NOT follow the instructions/ingredients on the back of the cake mix box. The only ingredients you need are the ingredients I listed in the recipe.

  7. I made this and wrote about it here. My whole family loved them. I think they turned out a bit too sweet for me. Or maybe I have no self control and couldn’t stop at just one? Yeah, that’s probably more accurate. Anyway, thank you for sharing your recipe.

  8. Hey Sally! These looked deliiiicious and I tried to make some tonight… My bottoms turned out gooey (even after letting them set for more than 30 min.) and they were hard to get out of the pan without the bottoms/sides sticking together. But the edges and even most of the top was a deep golden brown. Any tips for how to keep them brownie-consistency?

    1. Hi Lissa! I’m going to suggest baking them in a larger pan. Try an 11×7 pan next time. I’ve made these in a 8×8 square pan for 30 minutes and a 11×7 pan for 30 minutes. They both turned out well, but I find that the blondies baked in a 11×7 pan are easier to cut. I hope this helps you! They are supposed to be slightly gooey, but still easy to cut and pick up. Glad you liked them nonetheless!

    1. Sally, these are delicious! The recipe was pretty easy to convert to make it vegan-friendly. Oreos are already veg-friendly. I used Ener-G egg replacer in place of the egg. I’ve also made white and yellow cake from scratch before using ground flax seeds mixed with water to make a “flax egg.” That might work, but the egg replacer mixes in better to the box cake mix for this specific recipe. I simply found a box yellow cake mix that was egg, animal and dairy product free. (Be sure to check the back of the box and read all the ingredients as some byproducts are not always listed on the bottom that reads “Contains milk.” or “Contains eggs.”
      Used canola oil in the amount that you recommended and same with the sprinkles. This would make a great birthday cake.
      I used soy milk in place of the dairy milk and did have to use a little more than 1/2 a cup because my batter was really (really) thick. I baked them at the recommended temperature, but had to shorten it a few minutes. I started out with 21 minutes and added on three more minutes at the end at 350.
      I let them cool as per your directions, cut them into slices in the pan, took them to a potluck tonight and nobody even knew they were vegan!

      1. Abbie, I had no idea cake mix could be vegan. Shows how observant I am, haha! This is so great. My friend is a vegan and I feel like she is disappointed when I make some butter-ladden treats. I’ll have to try this out. I typically bake with flax eggs when I am preparing something vegan, but I’ve never used Ener-G. Thanks so much!! Glad no one noticed they were vegan either 🙂

  9. So I love making these, one of my kids favorites 🙂 A friend brought over the birthday oreos this week and when I smelled them ( so yummy ) I knew I was going to try them with chocolate cake mix. They turned out so good! Just thought I’d share 🙂 Thank you!!

    1. Hey Lara! Thank you so much for writing in… those Bday cake Oreos are TO DIE FOR! So, so good.. right?! I’ve NEVER tried them with chocolate cake mix though! What a fantastic idea. Love it!

  10. Hi Sally!
    I made a variation of these today with chocolate cake mix and oreos, and they look so yummy! They’re still cooling off so I haven’t had a chance to try them, but I doubled the recipe, got 2 boxes of chocolate cake mix, 2 boxes of regular double stuff oreos, some cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. I lined the bottom of a 9×13 pan with halved oreos creme side up, and the other half of the oreo went into the filling. I had a few whole oreos left so I crushed those up into the filling but it wasn’t quite creamy enough so I put in some cream cheese frosting. I didn’t have enough oreos to top the brownies, but I did top it with sprinkles. I baked it for about 15 minutes, and they look fantastic! I can’t wait to try them 🙂 I love your recipes!

    1. WOW. That’s all I have to say about your creation. The chocolate cake mix, the double stuff oreos, the cream cheese frosting – I would NOT be able to peel myself away from this batch of amazing bars. They c=sound SO decadent and rich. Wow, I want one right now!!!!

  11. Sadly cannot get golden oreos here in uk 🙁 am thinking of using a sub of foxs crinkle crunch ill let u know lol !!!

  12. I made these last night and they were a hit at my house! My girls prefer the regular oreos over the golden oreos but they really liked them in these blondies. All the cake batter recipes are so much fun. Thanks again for another yummy recipe!

    1. Thanks Shannon! I secretly like the vanilla golden oreos better. 🙂 They fit well in blondie recipes. So glad you made these and that your girls loved them. Thanks for reporting back!

    1. Hey Sarah! a 9×13 pan would not be large enough. I suggest baking in two batches in your 11×7 baking pan. Glad you love these!

  13. I made these blondes today and they were delicious! I absolutely love anything cake batter flavored as well, it’s really a curse. It was sad that I didn’t have enough sprinkles though! 🙁 I actually made my first blog post about this recipe today (and linked it, of course) Thanks for the inspiration and delicious dessert!!

  14. This is the fourth recipe of yours I have tried. They’ve all been really good, but this was the biggest hit with my family and 4H group! Awesome!

  15. I just made these, and had so much fun! I was getting giddy with the boxed mix cake batter and the sprinkles:) I tasted the batter and I thought these are going to be way too sweet, but they were fabulous, especially after they cooled; I love chewy bars! I am going to post these sometime, but I couldn’t this go around because everybody ate them before I could take photos haha;)

    1. I love them after they cool – very chewy indeed and one of my favorite quick desserts to bake. Thank you for reporting back Victoria!

  16. Alrighty girlie… I have made several of your recipes(which have all been awesome by the way!) I threw these together for an office party a couple weeks ago, and they were a big hit! I took a couple of them home for my little boys to try.. OMG. My youngest son is an addict! I just pulled my FOURTH BATCH in less than two weeks out of the oven! This kid can’t get enough of them! I’m not prone to keep Golden Oreos on hand, so I had to improvise tonight with extra white chocolate chips and graham crackers broken into pieces… Thanks for an awesome post! PS Jacks says thank you too 🙂

    1. I just love golden oreos and this is such a great way to enjoy them! I’m happy you all love them so much. And that Jack loves them too 🙂 I really, really appreciate your feedback Kira! Thank you so much.

  17. These blondies are the bomb! I made two batches for my English class, and they were all gone within fifteen minutes or so. I actually had two friends ask me to make more for their graduation parties! While I was cutting them, I had a tough time resisting the urge to just stand there and eat the whole pan 🙂

  18. Hey babe! I thought of you in the grocery store yesterday. I saw…….

    (are you ready?!)


    i freaked out 🙂 then I had to tell you hehe. (I like to pretend we’re besties btw in a non-creepy way of course)


  19. I just discovered your site recently, and I ABSOLUTELY love it! So far this week, I’ve made Cake Batter Blondies 2 times, Cake Batter Fudge, and I made these today with Mega Stuff Golden Oreos. All 3 recipes have been delicious, and gone within a day! Thank you for sharing… you’re a baking genius!

    Just wish I would’ve found your site a year ago when I was pregnant ;).

    1. Hi Nicole! It sounds like you love cake batter as much as I do. I’ve been meaning to buy those mega golden oreos too!

  20. These are really yummy! However, the texture was just like regular cake. I was expecting something denser like a brownie or a cookie. Could I have added too much milk at 1/2 cup? They are incredible anyway, we just ate them with a fork!

    1. Hi Pamela! The texture is supposed to be very dense, like a blondie or brownie. I fear as thought you used more than enough milk. Usually I just add up to 1/3 cup. It depends on the ounces in your cake mix pacakge though. Regardless, I’m glad you liked them!

  21. Made these this morning for a swim meet bake sale. They were a huge hit. My daughter loved them so much that she asked me for money so she could buy some back. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!!!

    1. Hahaha! That is too funny about your daughter! Sounds like you need to make them again. 🙂 Thanks Sharon!
