This Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake recipe features a thick base of chewy and slightly gooey chocolate chip cookie topped with creamy vanilla buttercream and garnished with ALL the sprinkles. It's the perfect birthday cake for any cookie lover!
Place the butter in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat, swirling occasionally, until melted. Alternatively, place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between bursts, until melted. Add the sugars to the hot butter and stir to combine. Set aside to cool.
Stir in the eggs, milk, and vanilla until well combined. Gradually beat in the flours, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. Bake now or cover the dough and refrigerate until ready to bake.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch spring-form pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes for a gooey center or 35 to 40 minutes to cook completely. Place the pan on a cooling rack and allow the cookie cake to cool completely before removing from the pan and frosting.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase the speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes. Add the salt, vanilla, and cream and beat on medium for 1 minute, adding more cream if needed.
Spread all over the cooled cookie cake then garnish with sprinkles. Serve or cover and let stand at room temperature for up to 1 day, or refrigerated for up to 3 days. Let come to room temperature before serving.
Cookie dough can be stored covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days before baking. If you need to prep the dough further in advance, check out my article on freezing cookie doughs here.
