Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Emily shares, “This is one of my family’s favorites and I love it because it’s quick, one bowl and no mixer required. They are very similar to Toll House® cookie bars, but chewier. Must be the butter and brown sugar. Yum!”


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • undefined


Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a medium size bowl in the microwave. Quickly mix in the brown sugar until dissolved. Whisk in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into a greased 8-inch x 8-inch pan (I line the pan with foil and grease the foil so that you can lift the whole thing out and cut into even squares after it’s baked) and bake for 22-28 minutes, or until no crumbs come out when a toothpick is inserted in the middle. Do not overbake!
