I am making my cookie dough cake, but in suprise cupcake form.
For the cupcakes:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 sticks lightly salted butter, room temperature, plus additional for greasing the pans
2 cups granulated sugar
Cookie dough filling:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
8 ounces chocolate chips
1/3 cup whipping cream
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to blend. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter until smooth and add the sugar. Continue whipping until the mixture becomes fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Note: this process can be done with a whisk by hand. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, taking care that each egg is thoroughly integrated. Add the flour mixture and combine.
Grease muffin pans with butter and fill each 3/4 full with batter.
For cookie dough filling: Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small mixing bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels
Once cake is completely cool, using a serrated knife, cut round holes in the middle of each cupcake.
Cover with ganache. Put in fridge for at least 1 hour. Keep covered in the refridgerator.
