Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (12 tablespoons)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup semi-set chocolate chips

Betty Crocker Chocolate Cupcake Icing (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Spray a 9 inch cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until smooth.  Mix in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla on medium-speed until combined.  Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.

On slow speed, slowly mix in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until combined.  The cooking dough will be quite thick.  Add the chocolate chips and mix for about 5 seconds until evenly distributed.

Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared cake pan.  Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the cake is lightly golden brown on top and just set in middle.

Remove from the oven and set the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.  Once cooled, use a sharp knife to loosen the sides of the cooking cake from the pan and transfer to a serving dish.

Decorate the cooled cookie cake, if desired.

 

Notes:
1.  Makes one 9 inch cake.
2.  I used Betty Crocker Chocolate Cupcake Icing that includes a star tip to decorate the cookie.
