Since my roommate has been such a great taste tester, I had to make something good for her birthday!
Again I had to resist using raw cookie dough in the middle layer, like the original “pudgy cake” because I used Pillsbury Ready to Bake. I decided a cookie pie would work.
I started with Duncan Hines milk chocolate chunk brownie mix. Baked as directed, and let cool.
When completely cool, I spread on the Pillsbury dark chocolate icing I had left over from the cookie dough balls to make the layers stick.
I had Pillsbury Ready to Bake in the fridge, which comes in squares, so I had to press them and spread them across the baking pan to make a cookie pie.
To make is as cookie dough-y as possible, I made sure to not over cook the cookie dough. Baked at 350 for about 8 minutes.
Again when completely cool, I added a very thin layer of icing to make it stick.
I used Duncan Hines Confetti cake mix. Bake as directed. Put on top of the other 2 layers, and let cool.
I covered the cake with the rest of the dark chocolate icing.
I think Vanilla icing would have been better over the whole cake, but who can complain about dark chocolate.
*I understand this is not the cleanest looking cake, but I told you I wasn’t really a baker.
Came out pretty damn delicious. It’s more than halfway gone in a day, living here with four girls.
