Yes, you read that title right! I bet you never expected to to see a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake on The Fit Housewife did ya?! Well, neither did I until I came across a recipe in The Best of Clean Eating 2 for this cake. I just knew I had to try it.
Cookie dough lovers (like my husband and kids), will love this moist, fudge-like cake. And dessert fanatics (like myself), will love that this cake won’t go from your lips to your hips!
So how does one make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cake lighter than the traditional chocolate cake? Instead of using oil, white sugar, and tons of butter, I’ve used unsweetened applesauce and plain Greek yogurt. These ingredients add moisture and flavor without the extra calories and fat.
Normally, I share our desserts with family or friends, but not this time. The kids loved it so much that they begged me to keep it for them. And maybe I wanted another piece too ? So I ended up freezing half of the cake and saving it for another weekend.
The next time you want to bake a cake that is healthier than the store-bought version, but doesn’t lose flavour or moisture, then you definitely need to make this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake!
