Here are some tips and variations for making Fudge Brownies & Cookie Dough Cakes:


Make sure to properly grease the cake pan before adding the brownie and cookie dough layers to prevent sticking and make it easier to remove the cake from the pan.

When making the brownie layer, be careful not to over-bake the brownies as this can cause them to become dry and hard. Check them frequently towards the end of the baking time and remove them from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs.

When making the cookie dough layer, be sure to use softened butter so that it easily combines with the other ingredients and has a smooth texture.

Allow the cake to cool completely before adding the frosting to prevent it from melting or becoming runny.

When cutting the cake, use a sharp knife to ensure clean, even slices.


Swap the chocolate chips in the cookie dough layer for other mix-ins like chopped nuts, dried fruit, or butterscotch chips.

Add a layer of caramel or peanut butter sauce between the brownie and cookie dough layers for an extra rich and indulgent treat.

Use a different type of frosting, such as cream cheese or vanilla buttercream, to switch up the flavor profile of the cake.

Add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of the cake to enhance the rich chocolate flavor and provide a nice contrast to the sweetness.

Turn the cake into individual portions by making them in cupcake tins and adding a dollop of cookie dough on top of the brownie layer before baking. Top with frosting and chocolate chips as desired.
