Oreo Cake


For the cake

  • 1½ cups  all-purpose flour                                   
  • 1 cup  sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • ⅔ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼  cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the Oreo whipped cream

  • 50 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • 4½ cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


For the cake

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Beat with electric mixer on medium to high speed until well combined. Pour batter in a greased 9-inch baking pan (or two, if you don't want to split the cake later).
  • Bake 20-25 minutes (12-15 minutes if you're doing 2 pans) or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely, and place in the freezer for ½ hour before assembling.

For the Oreo whipped cream

  • Carefully cut 6 Oreo cookies in half; set aside. Chop remaining cookies into ¼-inch pieces; set aside.
  • Make the Oreo whipped cream in 2 batches. In bowl of standing mixer fitted with whip attachment, whip 2 cups cream on medium-high speed to soft peak, spoon into large bowl. In same mixer bowl, whip remaining 2½ cups cream, sugar, and vanilla to soft peak. Fold into already whipped cream.
  • Place about 1 cup whipped cream in a different bowl and refrigerate until ready to decorate cake. Fold crushed Oreos into remaining whipped cream.

For the cake assembly

  • Remove cake from the freezer. Slice cake in half horizontally to create 2 layers. Place bottom layer on serving plate. Spread about ⅓ of Oreo whipped cream onto cake. Top with second cake layer and use remaining Oreo whipped cream to frost top and sides of cake. Chill in refrigerator for about 2 hours to allow cookies to soften.
  • Place reserved whipped cream in pastry bag fitted with star tip (re-whisk if necessary). Pipe 12 whipped cream rosettes around perimeter of cake and garnish with reserved Oreo cookie halves.
