You can use any kind of cake mix and make cookies:

1 package of cake mix (any flavor)
1 large egg
1/4 cup of oil
1/4 cup of water
1 cup of chopped nuts, raisins, oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chips, M&M'S® etc. (anything you like in cookies)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water. Beat until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredient (s).

Drop by teaspoon about 1 inch apart onto greased cooke sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Makes about 4 dozen.

I don't particularly like them, but there ya go!

I have a simple recipe if the mixes are the kind with pudding in the mix.

Mix 1 box of cake mix with 1 beaten egg and an 8 oz. container of thawed Cool Whip.  The mixture will be very stiff.   Scoop into balls, and then roll the balls into confectioners sugar.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees just until the tops of the cookies look set--about 14 minutes or so.   Watch them carefully.  If these cookies are over-baked, they will be hard and crumbly.  But if not, they are chewy and yummy.  My sisters demand these cookies for every holiday, and I don't mind because they are so easy to make.

You can also make cupcakes; lots of cupcakes may be easier to deal with than cakes!

I like this recipe:

Chocolate Mocha Chewies

1 package plain devi's food cake mix

1/3 cup brewed coffee, at room temperature ( I make mine strong for more coffee flavor)

4 tbsps melted butter

1 large egg

1 cup mike chocolate chips

Place a rack in the center of oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets with solid vegetable shortening. Set the pans aside.

Place the cake mix, coffee, melted butter and egg in a large mixing bowl.  Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Increase the speed to medium and beat  for 1 minute more.  The cookie dough will be thick.  Fold in chips

Drop heaping teaspoons of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.  Place the pans in the oven

Bake the cookies until they have set but are still a little soft ikn the center, 10 to 12 minutes.  Remove pans from the oven. Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheets for 1 minute.  Remove the cookies with a metal spatula to wire racks to cool completely for 20 minutes. (that is the hardest part for me LOL)

Enjoy!!!

Does anyone know if you can turn sponge cake mixes into cookies?  I've got a box or two of kosher sponge cake mix that needs to be used up.

Don't know about turning them into cookies but you can make a great desert.  You didn't say if it was chocolate or vanillla, but sponge cake is usually vanilla so try this.  Bake the cake according to package directions.  Turn out and cool.  After the cake has cooled tear it apart.

Next make butterscotch pudding.  Make either instant butterscotch pudding according to package directions (2 large packages or 4 small ones).  Make according to pie directions, you want it good and thick. 

Next drain a large can of sliced peaches.  Pat dry. 

Now assemble.

Cake on the bottom;  then a layer of peaches, then a layer of pudding.  Do it all over again ending with pudding.  Top with cool whip.  Its really good.  

My mother used to make it for me.  I'm all that fond of butterscotch pudding, too sweet, but this is delicious.
