Oreo Cake.

Oreo Cake.

A rich double chocolate layer cake with two layers of Oreo cookies inside, a thick cream filling, chocolate buttercream, and an Oreo cookie crumb coating. For extreme chocolate and Oreo lovers only!


Chocolate Layer Cake

·         3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch process)
·         1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
·         1 and 1/2 cups cake flour1 (measured correctly)
·         1 teaspoon baking soda
·         1/4 teaspoon salt
·         2 large eggs, at room temperature2
·         1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
·         1 cup full fat sour cream or full fat Greek yogurt, at room temperature
·         2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·         1/2 cup hot coffee or hot water
·         1 cup milk chocolate chopped (I used 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips)
·         1 15.25 ounce package Oreos

Oreo Cream Filling

·         1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
·         1/4 cup shortening3
·         2 and 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
·         2 Tablespoons milk or cream (cream preferred for best texture)
·         2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Chocolate Buttercream

·         3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
·         1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·         4 cups confectioners' sugar
·         1/4 cup milk or cream (cream preferred for best texture)
·         16 additional Oreo cookies, pulsed into a fine crumb


1.   Position oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat to 350°F (177°C). Generously spray two 9-inch cake pans with nonstick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with Oreos in a single layer; I fit about 15 Oreos in each pan. Set aside.
2.   In a large bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend the cocoa powder, sugar, cake flour, baking soda, and salt together on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the eggs, oil, sour cream, and vanilla and mix for 1 minute on medium-low speed.
