Oreo Cake



Oreo Cake




Oreo cake! Six decadent layers of Oreo cake, Oreo buttercream and a dark chocolate ganache. Perfect for the cookie and cream lovers in your life!


Ingredients

For the Cake
  • 8 Medium Eggs
  • 400 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 325 g Self Raising Flour
  • 75 g Cocoa Powder
  • 400 g Unsalted Butter/Stork

For the Buttercream
  • 500 g Icing Sugar
  • 150 g Oreos
  • 250 g Unsalted Butter (not stork)

Decoration
  • Oreos
  • Melted Chocolate


Instructions

For the Cake
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan, and line three 8"/20cm cake tins with parchment paper!
  2. Add your Butter and Sugar to a bowl, and beat together until light and fluffy. I use my stand mixer, with the paddle attachment!
  3. Add in your Eggs, Flour and Cocoa Powder and beat again till smooth and lovely!
  4. Split the mixture evenly between the three tins, and bake in the oven for 25-30+ minutes! A cake skewer should come out clean!
  5. Leave the cakes to cool in the tins for 10 minutes, and then cool fully on a wire rack!

For the Buttercream
  1. Make sure your Unsalted Butter is at room temperature before you start - you don't want to use any form of spread to make the Buttercream!
  2. Blitz your Oreos to a really fine crumb - don't take out the cream, leave the Oreo whole and blitz to the crumb!
  3. Once the Butter is at room temp, beat on it's own for a few minutes to soften it and make it looser!
  4. Add in the Icing Sugar and beat till fully till a basic Buttercream is formed!
  5. Add in the Oreo Crumbs, and beat again for a few minutes till a lovely fluffy Oreo Buttercream is made!

For the Decoration!
  1. Get your first Cake, and put it onto your serving plate! Secure it with a smidge of Oreo Buttercream underneath!
  2. Pipe some of your Buttercream onto the cake with your favourite piping tip, and add on your second Sponge! Repeat again!
  3. When you reach the top Sponge, pipe on the rest of your Oreo Buttercream!
  4. Drizzle over some melted Chocolate (optional) and add on some Oreos, and extra Oreo Crumbs! Enjoy your baking!
