Sweet, Delicious and Easy to Bake Funfetti Cookies Studded with White Chocolate Chips! 

Oh hey Funfetti, it’s been a while. Well, not that long really.. 7 months in total. To be honest, the fact that I am posting this recipe is a miracle because you all kept selling out the sprinkles from the last recipe!

So. Funfetti. Funfetti is typically a vanilla sponge cake, with rainbow coloured sprinkles dotted throughout! It’s sweet, it’s fun, and delicious. I love a good Funfetti related bake, but in the UK?! Our sprinkles SUCK. 

The problem we have over here in the UK, is that a lot of sprinkles just don’t have the same colourings or additives to make the sprinkles bright enough to bake with – a lot of the colours used in the sprinkles in America are in fact banned over here, because there are just TOO many additives!

Therefore, because this is for my Funfetti Cookie Recipe, you still need some gorgeous sprinkles that I whole heartedly recommend, but as they’re not baked for nearly as long as a Funfetti Cake is, it makes it a tad easier! 

So, the sprinkles that I use for these Funfetti recipes? These glorious Funfetti Sprinkles from Iced Jems. These are the only ones I have tried so far… that work! You can try any supermarket ones, and they will either just disappear completely into the bake, or just turn green. 

I realise that buying some sprinkles online just for a cake seems a bit OTT, but if you want a good funfetti related bake, and you’re in the UK like me and don’t have access to be best sprinkles ever, then it is SO worth it!

The amazing thing is, due to the popularity of her beautiful sprinkles, she now also offers a larger bulk size pack which is 100% worth it if you are into baking like I am! You can use these sprinkles as decoration, or in the bake like in these! 

For the actual cookies, I’ve used the same recipe as I always do, because I absolutely adore it. My White Chocolate & Raspberry Cookies, my Rolo Cookies and so on. All have slight variations of course, but the basis is the same!

I decided White Chocolate Chips would work the best for these, along with a ‘vanilla’ cookie dough, so that you could really see the colours coming through. You can of course do whatever you fancy, but I wanted these to have little rainbow spots of colour and I am OBSESSED.

Yes, you may worry about the e-numbers or amount of sugar in these – but proportionally the amount of sugar per cookie is normal for a cookie. They just look exciting, delicious and fun for everyone. I hope you love these cookies as much as I do! Enjoy! X

    Great recipe using store cupboard ingredients and only using one egg as these are more tricky to get hold of at the moment. Swapped the chocolate for raisins and cherries (left over from making your tiffin/rocky road! Also yummy) Your recipes are great, I can have confidence in following them, this is the fifth recipe of yours I’ve tried and cookies tasted lovely and had a great texture. Love your blog I scroll through all your recipes often all look so scrummy, endless possibilites. Thanks so much

    Hi Jane,
    Thank you for your recipes at this difficult time. My girls(6,3) and I love baking with your recipes we have been using your chocolate cake and vanilla cake recipe for a few years now. I have two questions for you.
    Would this recipe be ok without the cornflour?
    Who do my cakes go crusty and hard on top I have put a thermometer in the oven too check the temp is correct in the oven and I def don’t over bake them.

      Theoretically yes, but the cornflour is there for a reason (to help prevent spreading, changes the texture and so on). So you can either leave it out, or increase the flour slightly by at least 25g. And it can be any number of reasons.. such as you’re using the wrong temperature (such as if you have a fan oven, but you’re using the higher temp), or your oven is on the wrong setting and so on.

    Could I use golden caster sugar instead of light brown sugar?

      Ideally you would use light brown sugar as the crystals are larger, and the flavour is different – but you can switch if you need to!
