Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake with Chocolate Frosting
I wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies but then I thought of a cake with chocolate icing. So, I came up with this recipe for chocolate chip cookie cake with chocolate icing. It came out rich and sweet with all the chocolate. This is a good dessert with a tall glass of milk or coffee.
Ingredients for the cake:
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 1/2 inch round springform pan with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix flours, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar with a hand mixer. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix together well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread the batter into the springform pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until light brown.
Ingredients for chocolate frosting:
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, put melted butter and stir in cocoa. Using a hand mixer, alternate adding powdered sugar and milk, beating on medium speed to spreading consistency. Add more milk if needed. Stir in vanilla. Makes about 1 cup. Spread on cooled cake. Enjoy!
