Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

My guys are very susceptible to advertising.   They've seen the new Papa John's commercials advertising the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie and they asked if I could make one.    I don't have an oven proof skillet or pizza pan, so I scoured the web for one I could do in a cake pan.    I found this recipe on That's So Yummy and it was perfect since I only had 1 egg.

This is a great fix for a chocolate chip cookie craving without making a huge batch, scooping dough and then babysitting cookie sheets!

Absolutely no changes to the recipe.    Well, that's not exactly true, it said to let it cool for 4 hours and we just couldn't wait that long!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
  1 stick  butter -- unsalted
  1 1/4 cup  semisweet chocolate chips
  1 cup  all-purpose flour
  1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
     1/4 teaspoon  salt
  1 cup  light brown sugar
  1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
  1 large  egg

Heat oven to 350°F.   Grease and line a 9" cake pan.

Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together.    Cream the butter, light brown sugar and vanilla together until well combined, about 1 minute.   Beat on high for another 15 seconds.   Scrape down bowl and add the egg.  Blend for another 30 seconds. 

Add the dry ingredients and blend on low speed, then add the chocolate chips and blend until combined.

Scrape into the prepared pan.   Flatten batter to an even layer, smoothing it out.    Bake until light golden brown and puffy, about 18 to 22 mins (mine took 19).   

Cool in the pan 10 mins, run a spatula around the edge to loosen.   Cool completely (around 4 hours) and then turn out onto a serving platter.
