Chocolate OREO Cake with Fresh Strawberries

I haven’t met a person yet who does not like Oreo cookies. Have you?

They are one of my favorite cookies…hehe.

A few weeks ago, I played around with my chocolate cake recipe and created a chocolate oreo cake recipe. This cake is phenomenal. I cannot even begin to describe all this “deliciousness” without my mouth watering…lol. I paired this cake with chocolate oreo buttercream frosting and fresh strawberries…YUM! :D

This recipe will make a single 8×3 round cake.

OREO Cake

Delicious chocolate oreo cake with fresh strawberries.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered oreo cookies (Separate the oreos and throw the “non-creamy“ sides in a blender until you have a powdered form)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup full fat milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of cinnamon powder
  • Chocolate oreo buttercream icing:
  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (you can add more if you want a stronger chocolate flavor)
  • 1/2 cup powdered oreo cookies (made the same way as above)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream + few additional tablespoons to reach the consistency you require

Instructions

    Chocolate Cake
  1. In a deep bowl, add flour, cocoa powder, powdered oreo cookies, sugar, oil, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, cinnamon powder, baking powder, baking soda and mix everything.
  2. Add hot water. I usually microwave it in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  3. Mix everything until the batter is well-blended.
  4. Pour this batter into a greased/floured pan (Dimensions: 8×3).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Chocolate oreo buttercream icing:
  7. In a deep bowl, add butter and salt. Cream butter for a few minutes until it’s no longer lumpy.
  8. Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, powdered oreo cookies, vanilla extract, almond extract and start mixing at the lowest speed.
  9. Add 1/4 cup heavy cream and mix. Add more and keep mixing until you are satisfied with the consistency.

Notes

TIP: If your icing gets very runny, add more powdered sugar to thicken it again.

Additional ingredients and supplies for assembling/decorating this cake:

Spatula
Piping bag
Tip 1M
Sharp knife
Powdered oreo cookies (about 2-3 cups)
Fresh strawberries (rinsed and dried with a paper towel)

Step 1: 
Allow your cake to cool on a cooling rack and then cut it in half, using a sharp knife.

Step 2:
Fill it with chocolate buttercream icing and place a few sliced strawberries. Stick the other half of the cake in place.

Step 3:
Then, use a spatula to frost your entire cake in chocolate buttercream icing.

Step 4:
Finally, sprinkle the top and sides of your cake with powdered Oreo cookies.
Be generous with this because those powdered cookies all over the cake add so much flavor!

Step 5:
Fill a piping bag with chocolate buttercream icing or vanilla buttercream. Attach Tip 1M and  make little swirls on top of the cake. Top off each swirl with a fresh strawberry.

I hope you enjoy this fabulous cake :)

Happy Caking!

      Hi Ada,
      I haven’t tried substituting olive oil with butter. I think it might make the cake dense. But, I have made this cake with canola oil and even vegetable oil and those worked out just fine. Let me know how it goes if you use butter :)
      Happy baking!
