Cake Cookies

I've been up for 24 hours.


I couldn't breathe very well and had to go to the urgent care clinic. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, sinus infection, and my windpipe was pretty swollen. My oldest was in charge for a short while.

While I was out, my daughter surprised me with cake cookies. This dessert is probably one of the greatest recipes to make for kids that are bored or basic teaching principles of baking.

With my middle child knowing how to work the stove properly, he (8 years of age) coached my daughter (11 years of age) in what to do. Pre-heating the oven, what buttons to properly push, etc... This homeschool mom was very pleased with their maturity and their intellect in how to manage the kitchen. I can only imagine how old my Mammie or her mom was when they worked on a cast iron stove!

SHE DID NOT USE CAST IRON! I would actually wouldn't trust a child with cast iron until they're actually older, stronger, and more confident to handle items such as cast iron.

Here's the recipe for cake cookies.

Cake Cookies:

  • 1 box of white cake mix (any type of cake mix will actually do).
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 veggie oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix all three ingredients together for 2 minutes.

Roll or drop cookie dough on a cookie sheet. One dozen per sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees, until the edges are golden brown.

This recipe should yield 2 dozen cookies.

Hey, ya'll! I'm Maggie Stamper founder and blogger of Old Time Cast Iron. Thanks for joining me and allowing me to share some of my favorite memories, recipes, and finds with you.

I'm a wife and mother to three children. Born and raised as a farm girl in the small town of Greenbrier, Tennessee, I loved spending time with Mammie (grandmother). That's where my love for cooking started, right at her farm table which launched into cast iron skillet cooking later as a young adult.

Today, I love to blog, restore, cook, and treasure hunt for cast iron skillets. Be sure to check back in often because you'll always find something new to enjoy!
