  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 oz red food coloring
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

For the Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½-2 cups confectioners’ sugar


  1. Prepare the Oven and Pan: Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 9-inch or 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper and lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
  2. Mix the Dough: In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and egg yolk one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract, red food coloring, and vinegar. Gradually add the baking soda, cornstarch, salt, cocoa powder, and flour, mixing until just combined to avoid overworking the dough. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  3. Bake the Cookie Cake: Spread the dough evenly in the prepared springform pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cookie cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack to maintain its shape.
  4. Prepare the Frosting: While the cake cools, prepare the cream cheese frosting. Beat together the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla extract until creamy. Gradually add the confectioners’ sugar, adjusting the amount to achieve a soft and spreadable consistency.
  5. Decorate the Cake: Once the cake is completely cool, carefully remove it from the pan. Pipe the cream cheese frosting around the edges of the cake using a decorative tip. Add sprinkles or additional decorations if desired to enhance its festive look.

Tips for Perfect Results

  • Ingredient Temperature: Ensure all ingredients, especially the butter and cream cheese, are at room temperature. This makes it easier to blend them smoothly, resulting in a better texture in both the cookie cake and the frosting.
  • Avoid Overmixing: Mix the dough until just combined. Overmixing can lead to a tough cake because it develops the gluten in the flour.
  • Cooling Time: Allow the cookie cake to cool completely before applying the frosting. This prevents the frosting from melting and ensures it stays perfectly whipped and fluffy.

This Deep Dish Red Velvet Cookie Cake Delight is not only a visual treat but also a delightful fusion of textures and flavors. The vibrant red velvet paired with the sweet creaminess of the white chocolate and the richness of the cream cheese frosting makes each bite a celebration. Perfect for special occasions or as a surprise for a loved one, this dessert is sure to be a hit. Enjoy the process of baking this stunning treat and the pleasure of sharing it!
