Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Recipe


    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
    • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
    • Chocolate ganache or frosting (optional, for decorating)


    1. Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

    Grease a 9-inch round cake pan or springform pan.

    2. Cream the Butter and Sugars:

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

    3. Add Eggs and Vanilla:

    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Mix in the vanilla extract until combined.

    4. Combine Dry Ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.

    5. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients:

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

    Be careful not to overmix.

    6. Fold in Chocolate Chips and Nuts:

    Gently fold in the chocolate chips and chopped nuts (if using) until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

    7. Press into Cake Pan:

    Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared cake pan.

    You can use your hands or a spatula to smooth the surface.

    8. Bake:

    Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter).

    9. Cool:

    Allow the cookie cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

    10. Optional: Decorate with Ganache or Frosting:

    Once the cookie cake is completely cooled, you can drizzle chocolate ganache over the top or spread a layer of frosting for added sweetness.

    11. Slice and Serve:

    Slice the cookie cake into wedges, just like you would a regular cake.

    Serve and enjoy!

    12. Optional: Add Ice Cream or Whipped Cream:

    This cookie cake is delicious on its own, but you can take it to the next level by serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.


    Customize the cookie cake by adding other mix-ins like caramel bits, toffee pieces, or your favorite nuts.

    This Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is a perfect way to enjoy the flavors of classic chocolate chip cookies in cake form. It’s great for birthdays, celebrations, or simply as a sweet treat to share with friends and family. Enjoy the soft, chewy goodness of this delightful cookie cake!
