Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

This is not a cookie, this is a cookie cake, look like cookie, taste like underbake cookie with cakey texture.

When I saw this cookie cake at Almost Bourdain, I know I am going to bake this as the look and description of the cookie cake has hooked me into it. I baked this especially for dear brother, knowing 100% he will like this cookie cake since he is a cookie monster so how can I let him miss out this special treats!

The interior of my cookie cake is not as tempting and attractive as Ellie's, I was not able to slice the cookie cake neat and nice. Too bad that Ellie's blog is not opened to public now, if not I am sure you will be drooling over her cookie cake and get hook by it like I do :). Ellie, if you happen to see this post, I just want to let you know I miss your blog!

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients : for 9" to 10" cake pan
85g butter
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter (I used 60g)
1 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips (I used bittersweet chocolate chips)
1 cup plain flour (I used 150g)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar (I used 160g)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg

1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
2. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
3. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, light brown sugar, and vanilla extracts on medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute.
4. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat for 15 seconds. Stop the mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the egg.
5. Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds.
6. Add the dry ingredients and combine on low speed until just a few dry streaks remain.
7. Add the chocolate chips and mix for a few seconds until combined.
8. Scrape the batter into a greased and lined 10" round cake tin (I used 9" round cake pan cos I thought the batter seem to little for 10").
9. Press the batter into a smooth and even layer in the pan. Bake until lightly golden and puffy around the edges (the center should still feel quite soft), 18 – 22 minutes.
10. Cool for 10 minutes and then run a paring knife around the edge of the pan to release the cake.
11. Cool for at least 4 hours before turning the cake out of the pan and onto a large plate.

Oh this cake is real addictive, and Ellie is right, we just can't stop at one slice. Everyone given double thumbs up, even dear daughter kept asking for more. Definitely a keeper!

  19. I wanted to ask a quick question, the cake looks awesum but I do not want to use peanut butter can I just sub plain unsalted butter?

    1. Hi Aditi, I am not too sure about sub the peanut butter with butter. If you do not wanna include peanut butter, u can try this congo bar These 2 actually tasted quite similar.
