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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

Chocolate oreo buttercream icing:

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: 8ร—3).
    5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Chocolate oreo buttercream icing:
  1. In a deep bowl, add butter and salt. Cream butter for a few minutes until itโ€™s no longer lumpy.
  2. Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, powdered oreo cookies, vanilla extract, almond extract and start mixing at the lowest speed.
  3. 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:ย 
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 ย make little swirls on top of the cake. Top off each swirl with a fresh strawberry.

I hope you enjoy this fabulous cake ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Caking!
