Thank you Anuradha, for being so willing and might I say determined to see this post through! You’re such a trooper and I appreciate you!

Baker Street: M&M and Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I’m thrilled to be guest posting for one of our very own Muffin Monday bakers, Lyn from The Lovely Pantry today. Her beautiful blog is a marriage of her two favorite hobbies – Cooking and Photography! A Jamaican Mom who improvises recipes as she goes along, her range is worth experiencing. She could whip up anything from a Chocolate Chip Granola Bar to a Spicy Thai Tuna and Fennel Salad.

When Lyn asked me to guest post, I agreed immediately but the deadline was strict and even though I thought I would make it, my two traumatizing weeks at the dentist’s did not allow it. Lyn, despite being continents away, was entirely understanding and let me have additional time. I can’t thank her enough for it.

In turn I decided to bake for her my favorite chocolate chip cookie cake. A cake that is perfect for just about every occasion. It’s easy, delicious and easily adaptable. My variation today is a personal favorite – M&M and Chocolate Chips.

M&M and Chocolate chip is quite a mouthful as it is and trust me the cake is perfect and needs no alteration but one thing I know about Lyn is she’s a chocoholic so I decided to give it a little bit of an extra chocolate glaze for her. A slice of this is just perfect to brighten any day.

Over to the recipe: Not a cookie, Not a cake. But the best of both worlds: A cookie cake sprinkled with M&Ms and chocolate chips.
