Lazy Day Cake Bake

Say what you will of boxed cake mix, there are times you need some chocolate chip action in your kitchen but you just spent the afternoon in there whipping up some sort of culinary breakthrough for dinner and dragging out the hand mixer is not looking too appealing.

With only 4 ingredients and 1 bowl to clean, this cake bake totally fits the minimal effort bill.

It literally takes 5 minutes to throw together ............. and just as long to eat the entire pan ;) I make sure to always keep a couple boxes of the yellow cake mix on hand, mainly for this recipe!! This is a cross between a deep dish cookie and a brownie, so if you aren't a 'cake person', don't be deterred!!

Another thing I am in love with this recipe about, it's soooo versatile. If nuts are your thing, try adding 1/2 cup chopped walnuts into the batter. I think some caramel bits would be delish too. My favorite variation of ingredients for this is 1 cup dark chocolate chips, 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup coconut (Sam would rather I leave out the coconut, but I think it adds a great texture).

Lazy Day Cake Bake

- 1 box yellow cake mix
-5 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 2 cups chocolate chips (pb chips, butterscotch chips, coconut, etc.)
- 2 eggs (beaten)

Grease a 7x11 pan. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together. Spread mixture evenly into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
Tip: Make sure and wet your hands slightly before pressing the mix down into the pan, it's super sticky!!
