As much as I love fall baking (and holiday baking for that matter), I have to say that I may equally Spring baking. I have a serious obsession with pastels. Maybe one as big as my sprinkle obsession. (just maybe!) I love dainty cakes and feminine colors so naturally, I embrace Spring baking.
Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I actually used to dread it when I live in Colorado, because that’s when we would get most of snowfall. I’m not a lover of snow. I will be the first to admit it. Gasp! I know…But I really have grown to love springtime. Especially here in Texas!
In the spirit of Spring baking, I am bringing some heavenly cake batter marshmallows. They are soft and fluffy and incredibly easy to make. All you need is a candy thermometer and a mixer. You will never want to buy another bag of marshmallows after you see how easy they are to make (and how much better they taste)!
Quick note: If you are making these in the South or Midwest, try to aim for a day that is not overly humid, otherwise your marshmallows may have a little trouble setting up. Happy Spring and Happy Baking!
Line or grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. Place 1/2 cup of cold water and gelatin in the bowl of a stand mixer. Set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the other 1/2 cup water, corn syrup, granulated sugar on low, until sugar is dissolved. (Making sure to constantly stir)
Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for about 30 min, or until candy thermometer reaches 240 degrees (Try not to stir it at all!).
Remove from heat and stir into the gelatin mixture.
Mix on High for 8 minutes or until mixture triples in size. Mix in the cake batter flavor, , and beat for additional 1-2 min.
Pour the mixture into the greased/lined pan, and allow it to set overnight.
Once it has set, Lay it out on a cutting board (dusted with powdered sugar.
Cut 1/2 inch – 1 inch sized pieces using a sharp knife (spray with nonstick cookie spray to prevent sticking. Roll each marshmallow in confectioner’s sugar and set aside.
Melt candy wafers in 30-second intervals in microwave. Dip one half of each marshmallows and top with sprinkles.
