Milk and cookies are everyone’s favorite treat! Now we can have cookies and cake all in one deliciously simple treat!
Milk and cookies are just as much a part of Americana as apple pie. Think of all the commercials and advertisements we’ve seen where kids are dunking their cookies into a giant glass of milk. We have been trained to associate milk with cookies and visa versa.
I personally think that dipping cookies into a glass of milk is the grossest thing in the world. I don’t care if the cookies are chocolate chip, oatmale raisin, Fig Newtons (although those are gross no matter what) or Oreos, I am not a fan of dunking cookies into any liquid. I hate the thought of crumbs in my milk. I want to eat my crumbs, not drink them. Then there is the whole soggy cookie thing. No thank you.
I don’t even like to have ice cream touch my cake. I don’t like crumbs in my ice cream or ice cream soaked cake. Surely I am not alone in this right? Sweets and beverages must maintain seperates spaces or else. This snack cake is a play on milk and cookies, but with the added benefit of being combined with fluffy cake. Its genius really. Snack cakes are a bit of a misnomer. I don’t know many moms who willingly serve their kids slices of cakes as a snack. The idea behind it is that this cake is nothing formal, it is a simple recipe that combines comfortable flavors into one dessert.
For this milk and cookies cake, I made a basic vanilla cake batter. I then layered store bought chocolate chip cookie dough in with the cake batter before baking. The cookie dough bakes up soft and tender and forms into the cake in the most delicious way. A super simple frosting (made with milk of course) covers the top.
Milk, chocolate chip cookies and cake are found together in one easy dessert. This is the BEST way to enjoy milk and cookies! No crumbs, no soggines, just happy faces and happy bellies!

Milk and cookies are everyone's favorite treat! Now we can have cookies and cake all in one deliciously simple treat!
- 2 ½ cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 16.25 oz tube chocolate chip cookie dough
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 4-5 cups powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x13 in pan and set aside. In a bowl, combine the flour, the sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, followed by the melted butter. Stir until combined. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Top with half of the cookie dough. Layer the remaining batter over the cookie dough and dot the top with the remaining cookie dough. Bake cake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting beat the butter until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar, adding enough milk until a spreadable consistency is achieved.
