Then it is time to add the jelly beans to the remaining batter!

Take a spoon and stir it all together. It is a very thick batter, so it might have to be a team effort.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 50-60 minutes. Waiting is probably the hardest part of the whole process!

Once the toothpick comes out clean, cool for 10 minutes and then flip onto a serving plate. You can create a very simple glaze for the cake by putting a tub of Betty Crocker® Rich and Creamy frosting in the microwave, uncovered, for about 15 seconds. Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of milk and drizzle over the cake. You can also decorate with additional jelly beans if you want. This delicious cake is not too sweet and would be a great addition to your Easter or spring brunch!
