Ever wonder what to do with left over cake, left over cookies or even unsuccessful cookies? I have found a way…a super easy way to turn them into a moist, delicious cake. What joy! I was already really happy to turn my unsuccessful chocolate chip cookies into the best chewy cookies. But I had a big tray of the ‘cookie pancakes’ that didn’t turn out into cookies. Click Unsuccessful Big Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Turned Out Best for the recipe if you would like to make them.

There’s still Chocolate Fudge Cake that my daughter, Sharon, made. The cake was really good with ice cream. Imagine eating ice cream in this freezing weather! Definitely not me . But the combination was so good it’s worth suffering. And here again….chocolate cake with ice cream in winter…how brave of me!

Is there a way to combine the chocolate cake crumbs and the chocolate chip cookie crumbs? It should be possible. As long as I can get to the texture of cake batter, I think I will be able to create another cake. So there I went.

It turned out to be a dense, very moist, delicious cake. It only rose a little because I forgot to add baking powder. But at least it was a real success. I think it’s good even without the baking powder. I’m sure you can use any normal cookie crumbs, not necessary the unsuccessful ones.

Here is my Super Easy Cake Crumbs And Cookie Crumbs Cake recipe:

Ingredients A
4C chocolate cake crumbs
4C milk (warm)
4 eggs (beaten with fork)
1/2C sugar (add more if you like it sweeter)
60g butter (melted)

Mix Ingredients A

Mix all of Ingredients A. mash up the cake with a fork.

Ingredients B
2C chocolate chip cookie crumbs
3/4C flour
1/4C cocoa powder
1t baking powder (optional)

Add chocolate chip cookie crumbs and flours

Add Ingredients B to the chocolate mixture above. Mix well.

Ready to bake

Pour into a shallow tin that has been lined with baking paper. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Soft, moist cake

See the very moist texture. It’s very delicious eaten with a big scoop of good vanilla ice cream. I’m really happy that this cake comes out successful. So if you ever have any left over cake or cookies, just combine them and turn them into a cake. It’s super easy to make this cake and little cleaning up to do, too.

Have fun cooking and baking! Keep Learning Keep Smiling!

shaz  on January 17th, 2011

What great recycling! Or should I say upcycling? Very cool idea :) I want to try and turn leftover breadcrumbs into cake, see how that goes. I also liked your last post about the choc-chip cookie, so cute that the little 3 year old gave you some treats!

busygran  on January 17th, 2011

What a novel idea to bake from leftover cakes and ‘failed’ cookies! Will keep this in mind!

Belinda @zomppa  on January 17th, 2011

Those are sad little cookies that you made into one happy little cake! Is that ice cream…..

kakasma  on January 17th, 2011

@makcikmanggis - Yes, at least nothing goes to waste :D

@suituapui - Ae you sure you want to try baking. I can only see that it will all end up in your tummy…haha. Would love to see your meat balls. Trust your taste buds :D

@shaz - Upcyling? New term..haha. Yes, I was just so honoured to receive some food from the little girl….healthy ones some more :D

@busygran - Times is bad…need to learn to recycle food :D I know I will be doing this often.

@Belinda @zomppa - Yes, real joy to be able to do that. And that’s right, a big scoop of ice cream :D

@kakasma - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment! Oh, I just love curry puffs. Just too oily at this time to fry in the house….too cold to open windows. Maybe I should buy a deep fryer :D

@peteformation - Thanks very much, Pete! :D

@Cathy at Wives with Knives - Thanks very much, Cathy! I’m very happy to learn something new :D

@Little Inbox - Thanks very much! :D Will look forward to more interesting combination, though hope that my cakes or biscuits don’t fail.

I love the ice cream! And it’s a great way to use leftover cakes and cookies. And for others reading this, I can personally say that this tasted really good!!

Biren @ Roti n Rice  on January 18th, 2011

Good way to use up leftover cookies although there’s hardly ever leftover cookies at our house. Looks really moist and delicious. Definitely with a scoop of ice cream!

Lori  on January 18th, 2011

A super idea because very often I have pieces of cake left over especially when I am carving it into some design. I collect hem in the freezer.

Zibi  on January 20th, 2011

So resourceful!!
I’ve never heard of a cookie crumb cake, but I will definitely remember this the next time I end up with ‘pancake cookies’ ;)

Thanks for sharing this very useful recipe :)

Christine @ Fresh Local and Best  on January 20th, 2011

This is the first time I’ve seen a twice baked cookie cake. It reminds me of bread pudding. Great idea!

Mary  on January 21st, 2011

@lena - Yes, very surprised indeed. I actually had the bin ready…just in case :P

@Drick - I really don’t like leftovers. Occasionally they end up in the bin because no one wants to eat and I didn’t know what to do. At least this one came out successful. I will experiment with more next’s fun. I will have more cakes and more ice creams if you are here :D

@5 Star Foodie - Thanks very much, Natasha! :D

@Angie’s Recipes - Thanks very much, Angies! Best if there’s no left overs :D

@Sharon - Do you love the cake all because of the ice cream?…haha :D The ice cream always finish off too fast!

@Lori - Wow…you do cake crafts? That’s awesome. I wish I am that creative! You can sure recreate a lot of lovely desserts from those left over cakes. Would be so fun :D
