Incredibly Cookie Cake with Cookie Core

This cake won’t let down anyone. It’s all desserts combined: cake (of course), sponge cake, cookies, chocolate, frosting, cream … The procedure is therefore a little bit more complicated but despite this it won’t take more than an hour.

 

Ingredients (for a cake with 24 cm diameter)

Sponge cake

2 eggs

50 g sugar

30 g flour

5 g baking powder

Teaspoon vanilla essence

15 g walnuts

15 g cocoa powder

0,5 dl oil

0,5 dl milk

 

Cookie disc

150 g flour

75 g butter

1 egg

30 g sugar

2 teaspoons cocoa powder

Teaspoon baking powder

50 g chocolate, cut in pieces

Teaspoon vanilla essence

 

Frosting

500 g mascarpone

500 ml whipping cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

 

Decoration

Cocoa powder

100 ml whipping cream

3 crushed chocolate chip cookies

 

Procedure

Separate egg yolks and whites. Whip the whites and put them aside. Add sugar to the yolks and whip them. Add all other sponge cake ingredients. Lastly, slowly add whites to the mixture and stir. Pour into round baking tray with 24 cm dm and bake for 15 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, prepare the cookie. Knead the dough from all listed ingredients. Bake it in baking tray with 26 cm diameter for 20 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.

Cookie core

When the cookie is baked, cut the circle of 20 cm diameter from the middle. The rest of the cookie crush so you can add the crumbles in frosting.

Cookie crumbles for frosting

 

Whip the cream. Add mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla essence. Stir thoroughly. Finally, add the cookie crumbles in the mixture.

Time to put together our cake! First layer: sponge cake. Wet it with mixture of milk and rum (or other alcoholic beverage, like liquor). Spread the frosting, the layer should be about 2 cm high.

Put on the cookie. It’s important it’s diameter is shorter than the rest of the cake. Wet the cookie, too.

Setting the cookie core

Spread the remaining frosting. Shape it so it’s nicely round. The frosting is thick, so that shouldn’t be a problem.

Undecorated cake

You can decorate your cake with sprinkling cocoa powder on it, with whipped cream flowers, and crushed chocolate chip cookies. Or be creative and make your own decoration!
