Lazy Cake Tips

What else can you add to lazy cake?

We recommend adding mini marshmallows, peanuts or butterscotch chips to this easy cake recipe. Have a little extra fun and brighten it up with sprinkles on top, too.

How do you store lazy cake?

Store this lazy cake in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 to 5 days. (Here's how to store all your other treats.)

What else can you use to make lazy cake if you don't have Marie biscuits or Maria cookies?

If you don't have Marie biscuits or Maria cookies on hand, try using Biscoff biscuits instead. Then, if you have leftover Biscoffs, use them to make Biscoff hot cocoa or this Biscoff cookie pie.
