Ummm....what to say about this cake? It is amazing!!! I have a total sweet tooth (okay...every tooth in my mouth is a sweet tooth. Usually I could probably eat a whole cake and not be satisfied. But after half a slice of this cake, my sugar craving was done. It is a rich cake. So you can totally get away with only making one to fee a bunch. I am a huge fan of cookie dough. I usually make cookies just to eat the dough (admit....you do too!!!). Well, forever ago I pinned this recipe and have been looking for an excuse to make it. It is too big for just my family so I needed to make it when we had people over. Then my husband volunteered us to feed the missionaries one night (go to lds.org for some more info that....) From what I hear from missionaries is that they miss having home cooked meals and things like that. So I decided this would be a nice treat for them. They loved it.
So the gist of this cake is it is a fudgy cake, with balls of cookie dough in it and then a layer of cookie dough frosting inbetween and on top. Sound yummy? well...it is!!! I got the original recipe from Java Cupcake. (and no there is no java in this cake) In their version they did 3 layers....that was a bit much for what I needed so I cut the recipe in half and baked it in 2 9 inch rounds.
I copied her recipe and posted it, but go visit her site because she has some amazingly mouth watering pictures!!!
