The Best Cookies & Cream Cake

The Best Cookies & Cream Cake

It’s just one of those cakes, this one.

One of those cakes you can’t stop stealing a sliver (or giant hunk) from every time you “accidentally” pass by it on the kitchen counter. One of those cakes you crave whenever you dream about the perfect birthday cake even when it’s not your birthday (I do this regularly, you don’t?). One of those cakes that has both the best frosting ever and the softest, chocolatiest, yummiest cake. And especially, one of those cakes that make you not care about dumb calories because “it was way worth it.”

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (I usually grab Whole Foods 365 Organic Flour because it has no additives. The only ingredients should be flour.)
  • 1 ¾ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (I always use aluminum-free baking powder)
