Oreo Cake

I love Oreos.  They’re awesome.  They truly are milk’s favorite cookie.  Since the Oreo cupcakes are so popular and delicious, I decided to put together an Oreo cake, how fitting!

This is a 2 layer 10 inch round chocolate cake, with lots of chunks of Oreos baked in the batter.  Yes, baked IN the batter.  Similar to the cupcakes, I dipped the Oreos in milk, but instead of leaving them whole, I broke them up into chunks and added to them to the batter.  Stirring the batter well and ensuring that each cookie chunk is covered will guarantee deliciousness.  For the icing, I mixed buttercream icing with 1 jar of marshmallow creme, and threw in some Oreo cookie crumbs.  To top it off, what else?  Oreos!!  Three of them were saved as a decorative topper, just in case you didn’t know by looking at the cake just what flavor it is.

Cake Recipe:

1 box Duncan Hines dark chocolate cake mix

1 box instant chocolate pudding mix

1 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup water

4 eggs

8 oz. sour cream

1 package Oreo cookies

Beat first 6 ingredients well, using an electric mixer.  Dip 2 rows of Oreos from package in milk, and break up into chunks before adding to batter.  Gently stir together, making sure all of the cookie chunks are covered.  Spoon evenly into two 10 inch baking pans, and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or just until sides start to pull away.

Icing  Recipe:

2 lbs confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)

1 cup vegetable shortening

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup water

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon butter flavoring

7 oz. marshmallow creme

one row of Oreos from package

Reserve 1-3 cookies for decorative garnish.  Chop up cookies into fine crumbs, set aside.  Beat first 5 ingredients with electric mixture for 5-7 minutes.  Stir in marshmallow creme and cookie crumbs, mixing well.  Use this icing mixture to decorate the cake.

  1. Hi, thanks for posting and sharing your recipe! This recipe calls for “1 box instant chocolate pudding mix”. Could you tell me how much “1 box” is in cups or in grams? Really appreciate your response asap as I got an order of an Oreo cake for next Sunday. Thanks in advance!!!

  2. Hi , a few questions,
    1)you say you dip the oreo’s for the batter into milk , how much milk do you use for that and do you ad the cookies WITH the milk into the batter , ?or do you put only the soaked cookies in the batter ?

    2)how much weight is a “stick “of softened butter ?

    3)i suppose the icing/cream goes on top of two layers but also in between ? How much do you put in between as i can not see the video ..

    1. Hi! Here are the answers to your questions.
      1) You just need enough milk to dip the Oreos into, there’s not a certain amount. Typically, about 6 oz. is what I use, and there’s always leftover milk. Do NOT pour the milk into the batter, it’s only used for soaking the cookies.
      2) A stick of softened butter is 4 oz.
      3) The amount of icing that goes in between the layers of cake depends on the size of the cake you’re making. You typically want the amount of icing in between cakes to be about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
      Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any other questions!
