Four Ingredient Cake Batter Dip
Cake dip is also super versatile – have I mentioned it’s a cake mix dip? Yep, you can use all kinds of cake mixes to make this fun dip, but today it’s all about devil’s food cake mix. Chocolate fans: this one’s for you!
This is a quick mix and serve dessert – you only need 4 ingredients!
The dip is made with a dry cake mix combined with butter and cream cheese for a creamy, rich chocolate dip. It’s a great excuse to keep cake mix on hand in the pantry!
I love it as a fruit dip, but you can pair it with cookies or try my fun pie crust dippers with it.
It might look like a bowl of chocolate frosting, but this cookie dip with cake mix really does taste like chocolate cake batter. If you were a kid who loved to lick the beaters when your mom made a cake, you will love this cake batter dip with cream cheese.
What’s in Cake Dip
Softened cream cheese: Make sure it’s softened so there are no lumps in your dip.
Softened butter: Salted or unsalted works
Devil’s Food Cake Mix: Or any chocolate cake mix – dry mix only! You can also make this with yellow cake mix for funfetti cake dip – or use any flavor cake mix.
Milk: Nonfat or regular, or nondairy works
Powdered sugar: For sweetness!
How to Make Cake Batter Dip
- Place the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl. Beat them with an electric mixer until the mixture is fluffy.
- Add the dry cake mix and three tablespoons of milk and mix until well combined.
- Slowly add the powdered sugar to the cake batter mixture and mix well. Add more milk a few tablespoons at a time until the dip reaches your desired consistency.
- Give it a taste test and if it needs more sugar, add a little more powdered sugar. This will thicken the dip, so you may need to add a bit of milk to thin it.
What to Serve with Cake Batter Dip
I love this cake batter dip recipe with pie crust dippers! They are so simple to make – here’s what you will need:
- Refrigerated pie crust
- Melted butter
- Granulated sugar
Unroll the pie crust and cut out shapes. Place the cutouts on a prepared baking sheet, brush them with butter, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake them for five to seven minutes at 350°F. Let them cool before serving them with the dip.
You can also serve devil’s food dip with:
- Fruit like sliced apples, bananas, and strawberries.
- Pair it with shortbread cookies, gingersnaps, or vanilla and chocolate wafers. Or make it an animal cracker dip for the kids and pair it with a box of animal crackers!
- For a salty-sweet snack, pair the dip with salted pretzels, pita chips, or buttery crackers.
- Not into chocolate? You can use a different kind of cake mix! I love funfetti cake batter dip, but you can also try lemon, carrot cake, strawberry, and vanilla cake mix – there are a lot of options.
- Take it up a notch with a mix-in! Feel free to add crushed cookies, chopped nuts, or sprinkles to your cake batter dip.
- How to store cake batter dip: Cover the bowl of cake dip with plastic wrap and keep the dip in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to a week. Be sure to stir it well before serving. If it’s thickened up on you, add a little milk to thin it.
- Make it sugar-free: use sugar-free cake mix and Swerve sugar free powdered sugar!

Keep on desserting!
Will this keep in the fridge for a day or two?
Yes! It’ll keep for about 2 days. You can also freeze it!
I love your blog. I just started to follow it so. I have a cooking blog called delightful delicious dinners so if you want to make a friendship circle or chat please follow delightful delicious dinners cause you are a baker that is amazing
OMG! You have me laughing so hard! I think you have a camera set up in MY house and you’re just using my episodes of the “blissful” holiday scenes for your own blog 😉 Although, I saved myself with the St. Patrick’s Day and never even started that. My son used to complain that his one friend’s family celebrated HALF -birthdays! WHAT?
My daughter came home before Easter and said the kids on the bus told her there was no Easter bunny, that the parents just make him up and they give the baskets. She told them that wasn’t true because parents can’t afford all that stuff. 😉 I told her that only the “naughty” kids have to get their baskets from the parents, because the Easter bunny is watching them like Santa Clause.
And after all that….I’m definitely going to make this stuff! I bought a tiny little bag of a “dry mix” for the same thing and gave $5 for it! It had the same recipe basically. And the pie crust dippers are perfect!
