Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

An easy to make and delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake that's perfect for any occasion. 


  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Buttercream Frosting

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar (I like to run through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of any lumps)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1-3 drops food coloring of your choice (optional)
  • sprinkles (your choice!)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-inch cake pan. Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar together for 2 minutes and then blend in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix in all but 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips. 
  • Press the cookie dough into the cake pan until evenly distributed. If using your hands, wet your hands lightly so the batter doesn't stick. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top and press them down slightly.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes until the top is golden brown. Let the cookie cool completely and then run a knife along the edge to loosen. Transfer to a platter. Pipe on frosting along the edges and add the sprinkles. If you don't want to pipe frosting you can simply spread on top.

Buttercream Frosting

  • Beat all the frosting ingredients together until smooth, adding milk as needed. If adding food coloring, add one drop at a time, mixing well until desired color. Place into a piping bag and pipe on frosting if desired. Sprinkle on the sprinkles.
