I know this recipe will excite you as much as we were excited when my son, Vedant wanted this cake for his birthday and here comes the chocolate chip cookie cake🍪🎂
When I wanted to bake cheese cake for his birthday, he came up with this idea as he likes chocolate chip cookies . I planned to alter my chocolate chip cookie recipe a bit and ended up with a decadent chocolate chip cookie cake which is soft & rich in center and chewy in the edges.
To bring the cakey texture to the cookie, we are adding 2 eggs instead of 1 egg and 1 yolk. To make the cookie cake moist and soft, we are going to use only brown sugar and no white sugar. When coming to butter, I substituted nearly half with oil which also helps to make the cookie cake moist. Baking soda helps the cake to rise.
There is no waiting time for this cookie cake as the dough need not be chilled. Once you make the dough, just spread it into the pan as the dough will not spread as it is in the pan. A 9- inch pie pan or cake pan will work good. As I made this for birthday and my son wanted two layers of it, I used my two 5- inch pan. Hope I explained well!!
This cookie cake was liked by everyone in my family and when I shared it with my neighbours, they just loved it. I decorated it with buttercream frosting in-between and on top. Both whipping cream and ice-cream works good along with this cake.
