Literally, because it’s a giant and will probably take up to a week to eat.

And! And! And! (Sorry, too much? I’m just so excited about this I couldn’t contain myself) This cake has a  chocolate chip cookie layer! Two layers of Purely Simple chocolate cake sandwich a thick layer of chocolate chip cookie.

It makes a great dessert, and an even better mid-morning snack (don’t ask me how I know that), because cake and cookies should always be combined. Always.

With ice cream. It’s a fact of life.

Plus, guys, this cake is super simple to make! I promise. It’s pure chocolate heaven.

I happen to find baking cakes extremely therapeutic, and I love making them from scratch, partly because I like knowing exactly what ingredients are going into my cakes.

But, from-scratch cakes can be extremely time consuming, and often fairly expensive, which is why boxed cake mix can be a lifesaver. Pillsbury just released a new line of boxed products at Target called, Purely Simple, and the title reflects the nature of these products, as they have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives–so you know exactly what ingredients are in your cake!

This cake, apart from the filling, is made entirely with Purely Simple products! Even though this cake looks like you slaved away for hours in the kitchen, it truly is a simple yet stunning cake to put together.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder (optional--enhances the flavor of chocolate)
  • Cookie
  • 1 box Purely Simple Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • Frosting
  • 1 box Purely Simple Chocolate Frosting

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease three 9" cake pans with cooking spray.

    I was JUST eyeing these cake mixes today at Target. No joke! I was telling my mom I need to make these cakes because I am no baker….I wish I had your outlook on baking. Making no bake desserts is therapeutic to me. Whereas, baking gives me anxiety but starting with a premade cake mix then fancying it up is my kinda baking!

    Definitely trying them out after seeing this beauty!
