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! You made my day with this rich and amazingly chocolatey treat! What’s funny is – M&M’s is the treat that my kids get while they are here on vacation! A sweet coincidence! This cookie cake is absolutely perfect! Chocolate is my weakness!

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.
