Oreo Chocolate Cake

My last post was about Oreo Frosting in prep for an Oreo Cake that I wanted to make for a dear friend at work. Her Birthday was coming up, closing in on the end of the year and even though there hasn’t been much to celebrate per se I was making more of myself feel better than anything else 🙂

Oreo has had a fan club for more than a decade now and it always amazes me how there’s a never ending list of things you can make with it and have it come out good every single time still! The Oreo cake I have below is nothing grand in all honesty – It’s all about the frosting and the Oreo border. I do want to get into a more experimental territory with Oreo soon but i’m trying to lose 3 kilos after this phenomenal Thailand trip I had with my family and Oreos need to stay far away from me right now. I also have a wedding to attend to in Manila in the next 2 weeks and I’m just dreading how I’ll look in my outfit, so while I write about this favourite cookie of everyone’s which brings so much joy in every bite, I am biting into a Guava and having some almonds for dinner to shed some fat off.

So for the Cake, keep it simple and use any Chocolate Cake recipe you have as a favourite, or the following:

2 C flour
2 C sugar
1 C milk
1 C oil
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 Eggs
1 C hot water
2 /3 C cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
12-14 Oreos

Oreo Frosting

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C/375 F
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and all the wet in another
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, place in pan and bake for 40 mins or until skewer is clean
  4. Once the cake has cooled, divide the cake into 2 halves. Set one side up flat and cover with Oreo Frosting
  5. Place the other layer of the cake on top an frost the cake on top and all around
  6. While the frosting is still wet, stick Oreos all around the border of the cake and let the cake set
