Vegan Cookie Cake

Last Saturday was the Omnivore‘s 30th birthday! Naturally, being the ambitious girlfriend that I am, I wanted to bake him a cake.  Unnaturally, he is not a huge fan of cakes.  So when I asked him what kind of dessert he wanted as we roamed the aisles of Jewel, he pointed towards the nearby rack of cookie cakes.

Now, I know very well how to make vegan cookies, but my one and only attempt at turning the same dough into a larger cake version came out a bit crispy.  Personally, I like a little crunch in my cookie…the Omnivore likes his soft.  That’s why I went in search of a new recipe and found this post from Vegan Strong.

The cookie cake recipe was technically a blondie recipe which meant it had the potential to turn out nice and chewy.  However, due to oven temperature variations, mine turned out a bit more on the dough-y side, even after a 55 minute bake time.  Dough-y, but AMAZING!  Seriously, this cake has now been added to my list of cravings. I might even request it for MY next birthday:

it was my first time EVER decorating with icing...don't judge.

[Note: this cake was decorated the lazy way, with pre-packaged non-dairy icing. :)]
