Last weekend, we went to a birthday party and they served chocolate chip cookie cake. I forgot to ask what the mom was serving for dessert in advance and assumed it would be cake or cupcakes, so that’s what I packed. Normally, this makes my daughter happy and feel included but this chocolate chip cookie cake…well, it looked amazing and she was envious.

I was surprised that even though my daughter knows gluten makes her very sick almost instantly, she actually asked if eating a little would hurt. Of course, I told her that eating a little was not ok and she understood and ate her cupcake. I also promised her that we would make our own gluten free chocolate chip cookie cake together at home, and that it would be even better because we made it together.

I wanted to make it really fun, so when we got in the kitchen to get started both of my kids wore aprons and chef hats and giggled the whole way through. I was all smiles too, though secretly nervous about how the cake would turn out. Thankfully, it was great and I was so relieved!

The recipe is actually quite simple, and only bakes for 20 minutes. I enjoyed it plain, and my kids liked topping it with chocolate frosting and sprinkles along the edge.
