This cake is amazing! Almost everyone who tried it said it was THE BEST cake they’ve ever had! I would suggest doubling the buttercream amount and I did make these changes:

- Tossed the mini chocolate chips in flour – 1 tablespoon per 1 cup of mini chocolate chips.

- Used the Jacques Torres NYT Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (1.5x): browned the butter, used half milk chocolate and half semisweet chocolate chips, and replaced half of the vanilla extract with princess emulsion.

- Soaked the Chocolate Chip Vanilla Cake layers in a Whipped Cream Simple Syrup using 0.5 cup Water + 0.5 cup Sugar + 2 tablespoons Whipped Cream Vodka.

- Reverse creaming method used for the Chocolate Chip Vanilla Cakes.

- Used a single wooden dowel through the center of the cake for stabilizing purposes!

Thinking about making this cake, but thought I would ask this ahead of time. You stated that you used 4 lbs of batter and split it between 8 inch pans (3), how long would the cakes cook? I looked at the chart on the cake recipe, but that time was for 3 lbs of batter in an 8 inch pan. Thanks in advance!!

Hi! Is there a way to divide the recipe in half so I don’t end up with so much cookies. I’m not exactly the greatest when it comes to this stuff..

Hi Yo,

I’m trying to make with all gluten free (I know the cookie butter isn’t). How should I adjust these recipes to gluten-free all-purpose flour?

I learned from recipe #1 that adding cornstarch to cookie dough will create exceptionally soft, thick baked cookies. Ever since then, I ve always added cornstarch to my chocolate chip cookies. You all seem to love the addition of cornstarch in cookies and I had to add it to the cake! This soft-baked cookie cake will melt in your mouth.

Hi, I live in England and I don’t have cup measurements, do you perhaps have the recipe in grams? It would be extremely helpful.
Thank You!

I made these cookies and they are delicious, however mine didn’t look anything like those pictured in the video on YouTube. I have a batch of sixty beautiful chewy but flat cookies. I made the recipe as directed but decided to chill the entire batch while the oven was warming up. I felt that it batter was too soft to bake straight away. Thank you for the recipe and we have enjoyed eating everyone of them :) Thank you Yolanda and Derek for sharing the recipe.

You or your team really needs to work on writing the recipe out. Always leave steps or ingredients out.

Hi, Yolanda! I loved your recipe, and it worked out amazing! The dough was a bit too liquidy, and the cookies spread a little. I think it was because I used margarine, but what are your thoughts?

I still love the recipe, and they taste SO GOOD!!!

Thanks, totally recommend it to friends. :)

Hey Yo, I’m sure you’ve been asked before but where do you get your cake pans?

I know this is gonna sound silly but to those who are making this cookie recipe. I’ve done some experiments and I found that after mixing the dough, The butter has softened too much to bake straightaway. If you refrigerate the dough until firm and then form into balls or push into cake pans. Then let sit until room temperature. Then bake. If you follow those three extra stops then you’ll find the cookie dough cooks all the way through and stays in somewhat of a cookie form rather than falling flat. This has been done in a moderately warm house in the middle of a New York summer. My suggestion would be to make extra dough and experiment in your own house and climate. Which is what I did. Sorry “Yo” if I’m overstepping my grounds I just thought the people making these comments would like some help. I love your cakes and I have been showing them to the kids I nanny four. It is really sparking interest in baking in a new generation! They look forward to your weekly post!

You should make a shirt which would say: BAKE it, CARVE it, CRUMB COAT it, DECORATE it, EAT it

Hi Yo!!

I tried to replicate Derek’s cookies yesterday, and my mixture was not the same consistency. I thought I followed the proper measurnents, and they taste nice, but it wasn’t a dough more of a batter consistency. I don’t know what I did wrong! ?
