guys, this all sounds like super genius...quick & easy, but still able to enjoy fresh-from the oven-tastiness. let me get this right: you can use any type of cake mix you want to experiment with, but instead of adding whatever it tells you to on the box, go with a pair of eggs & 1/2c oil, plus something else to make the batter thicker? that's it, it's really that easy??

i'll be getting odd looks in the cake mix aisle as i stare veerrrrrry thoughtfully at all the boxes...

yes fireweaver, but, you don't need anything to make it thicker. They are ooey gooey and good.
I have been making these for years. I roll the chocolate ones in powdered sugar though. I will put strawberry jam/jelly on the yellow cake by making a small indention.

There is bound to be some experimentation involved in this, but basically yes that is it. If needed you can add some flour to thicken the batter up.

never had to add flour or anything else to make dough thicker. u may add, nuts , chopped fruit, choco chips or what ever your little heart wants. i added crushed special k to a batch of chocolate.

the pineapple ones very delicate, but grown grandson loved em.

Ours was a little runny, we added 1/4 cup flour and they were just right. Might be variances in the cake batter, might be that we used the 'veggie' eggs and when compared to regular grade A large eggs, they are larger and to me seem to have thicker whites and richer yolks.
Couldn't tell you for sure.

Vegetarian fed, hormone and anti-biotic free, cage free eggs. We buy the brown ones and their large size is about the size of the x-large regular eggs in the store. We use these for eating not baking. Since most recipes call for large eggs, we buy whatever eggs are on sale, grade A large, for baking.
In this case we were out so we used the Veggie Eggs, I suppose I should call em Cage Free, LOL. Two of them are almost like three regular large eggs, so I thought this might account for the extra moisture.
Baking is not my strong suite, so I am not surprised when I have to adjust a recipe because it is too thick or too thin. I usually figure it is something I did not the recipe, and it usually is! LOL.
