Oreo Cake Recipe



Fall temps call for comfort food, am I right? Hence this decadent Oreo cake! 

This chocolate Oreo layer cake is my daughter's all-time favorite cake and she requests it for every birthday, which I'm more than glad to oblige since it's oh-so delicious and super fun to make! 

If you like chocolate and Oreos (like us), than you really can't go wrong with this chocolate layer cake with Oreo buttercream and a chocolate ganache drip to finish things off! YUM!



Oreo Cake Recipe

This cake is perfect for any celebration you may be hosting this season, and also make s great base for a Halloween cake! Juts add some cute halloween printables as toppers, and voila! 


This Oreo cake is a six inch three layer cake and serves six to eight. It starts off with my go-to chocolate sponge cake.


Then I make a Swiss Meringue Buttercream flavored with crushed Oreo cookies in it. This frosting is not too sweet (unlike the American buttercream) and is super silky, making it so easy to work with. It also lends itself beautifully to any flavor you may want to add to it!


It was my first time using crushed cookies in this frosting  recipe, but it worked a treat! You really get that punch of Oreo flavor that this cake requires! 


To decorate this layer birthday cake, I used some more crushed Oreos on the lower bottom half of the cake.


Then I added that delicious chocolate ganache drip, topped off with more Oreo buttercream frosting for the top of the cake as swirls, finishing it off with more Oreo cookies on top - 'cause as far as my daughter is concerned, "you can never have too many Oreos!" 😁


Check out the time-lapse video below to see how I decorated my cake! And if you have any questions, let me know down in the comment!

Oreo Cake Recipe - delicious, easy to make chocolate cake with Oreo buttercream frosting, chocolate ganache drip and Oreo décor for any celebration!

Ingredients:

Chocolate Sponge
  • 250g butter
  • 250g soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 160g flour
  • 90g cocoa powder (100%)
  • 10g baking powder
Oreo SMBC (Swiss Meringue Buttercream)
  • 5 room temperature egg whites
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 452g room temperature butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup crushed Oreos into powder
Chocolate Ganache Drip
  • 1 cup chocolate 
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup cream

Instructions:

Chocolate Sponge
  1. In a mixer fitter with paddle attachment, beat sugar and butter for about 10 minutes until paler and fluffy.
  2. With the mixer on medium speed, add the vanilla, then add one egg at a time until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
  4. Take the mixture off the mixer and fold in the dry ingredients with a large metal spoon until combined.
  5. Divide the batter equally into 3 six inch round cake pans lined with parchment paper and greased (about 300 g in each tin).
  6. Bake at 180 deg. C. for about 25-30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  7. Let cakes cool in pan, then transfer onto wire rack to cool completely.
Oreo SMBC & Frosting
  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer, add sugar and egg whites and heat over a pan of water on medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Rub with fingers to test if the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Beat using the whisk attachment on your standing mixer, for about 15-20 minutes until the mixture comes to room temperature and the bowl is completely cool to the touch.
  4. Add the butter in cubes, piece by piece, on medium speed with mixer on until all the butter has been incorporated.
  5. Add vanilla and beat to combine.
  6. Add 1 cup of Oreo cookie crumbs/dust and mix to combine.
  7. Separate 1 cup of the finished buttercream for swirls on top.
  8. Fill and frost cake.
  9. While cake frosting is still soft, add Oreo cookie crumbs to the bottom half of the cake. Refrigerate your cake while you make the chocolate drip.
Chocolate Ganache Drip & Final Cake Décor
  1. Add chocolate and cream to a heat proof bowl.
  2. Heat in microwave at 30 second intervals until fully combined.
  3. Add to a piping bag or squirt bottle. Let the ganache cool slightly so it won't melt the frosting, but is still pourable.
  4. Drizzle chocolate ganache over the cooled cake.
  5. Finish the décor with buttercream swirls and more Oreo cookies.
