Cake Batter Milkshakes Recipe

Creamy, thick, and sweet Cake Batter Milkshakes have all the flavor of that delicious cake batter you love to stick your finger in. And they only require a few ingredients and a couple minutes of your time.

Cold Stone Creamery has completely ruined me when it comes to ice cream. Since trying their cake batter ice cream, it’s the only kind of ice cream I want. But Cold Stone is a good 20 minutes from my house and a little hard on the pocketbook, so I wanted to make a cake batter treat that we could enjoy at home.


My daughter’s birthday last Friday seemed like the perfect occasion. We decided to skip a formal celebration with a cake since her schedule was so jammed pack with school starting back and her High School Swim Season in full gear.

I wanted something simple that would be celebratory. Sprinkles are nothing if not celebratory. 🙂

It only took a few minutes and we had drinkable birthday cake.

These milkshakes are totally adaptable to your tastes. Go light or heavy on the cake mix depending on how much of that cake batter flavor you want. Add a few sprinkles or a lot. I like a lot!

Add milk or half and half depending on how creamy you want it. A little liquid for a thick shake or extra for a thin shake that’s easily slurped through a straw. Any way you make it, it’s delicious.

Now I need to figure out what to do with the remaining cake mix. I’m thinking Cake Batter Popcorn 🙂

    Look at you you glorious milkshake!
    … sorry I had to speak directly to the milkshake first. It’s just so pretty. 😉 And I know what you mean, Christin. How can you say no to cake batter once you’ve tried it?! It’s ice cream with sprinkles and it doesn’t matter if it’s your birthday or not so all hail the cake batter ice cream (and this milkshake!).
