Peanut butter and cookie dough cake (628 calories per serve)


This is devilishly good but so incredibly rich that you couldn’t (or shouldn’t) eat too much in one go. I could fall asleep into a food coma after this but my husband absolutely loved it. It’s really great to snack on and grab a piece or chunk of at 3pm in the afternoon. Now … having said that, it’s not exactly a “pretty” cake as it literally is one big cookie and when you slice it up, especially when it’s still warm, it’s really gooey (the picture shows exactly how gooey it got!).

Serves 8 (or 10 smaller pieces)

Ingredients
170g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
175g brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
240g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
175g chocolate chips (I used larger, ‘melt’ sized ones)
125g peanut butter (I used ‘smooth’. You can omit the peanut butter which would lower the calorie count to 536 calories per serve)

20cm round cake tin

Preheat the oven to 180C.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, caster sugar, brown sugar, vanilla essence and egg until mixed thoroughly.

Then gradually add the plain flour and baking powder until a smooth dough forms.

Mix through the chocolate chips and peanut butter into the dough with a spatula.

Grease a 20cm round cake tin and place the cookie dough mixture into the tin.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.

Serve with ice cream (not included in calorie count).
