I know I ask a lot of really lame questions, but has anyone baked crushed up Oreo's mixed in cake?

I want to do this for a customer, but I don't want to waste cake if it comes out weird.

I am going to, but I thought I'd also try them in the cake...

I have never tried this in a cake before, but I have done that with a cheesecake and it turned out good! HTH

I did this a couple of weeks ago. They loved the cake.

What are you going for by putting them in the cake?
It seems like it might be a weird texture. But I'm VERY sensitive about texture. I think having them in the filling would be good enough. Hmmm.

it's WONDERFUL! i've been doing that since i was a kid -my friends used to request it. made it last weekend actually! i just used about half a bag of them. you can either wack the heck out of them with a rolling pin or roughly chop w/a knife. just fold them in. makes good cupcakes too! try it. you'll love it!

I bet it would be good. After reading the menu of a cupcake shop that had a Cookies and Cream cupcake with a whole oreo baked in the center, I had to try it myself. The oreo softened a bit, and was so yummy!

I sure hope you mentioned this in the ever growing cupcake thread, though it just may put Melvira over the edge!! icon_lol.gif

There is a great recipe on Oprah's web site -- Outrageous Oreo brownies. The Oreo's are great in the brownies. YUMMMMY! I would imagine that Oreo cookies would be great in cake too! Just leave them in semi-large chunks. If the cookies are reduced to crumbs, you just will not notice them. Now I need some chocolate!

Thanks for all of your input!! I will definitely add them to my cake batter. But I'm bummed, after counting out 20 for the filling and 20 for the cake I only have 10 left for me! icon_sad.gif

Oh, that is just SWELL guys!! Pick on the fat pregnant girl!! icon_cry.gif You've been discovered, you can't just sneak off into another thread and make fun of me!! icon_razz.gif And it's not my fault that this baby is already a foodie!!! icon_rolleyes.gif It's ok... I've been seriously jonesing for good stuff lately!

Ok, but seriously, I can control myself around Oreos unless we're talking double stuffs... or those new peanut butter ones. Try using those in a cake. In a chocolate cake. With chocolate peanut butter icing. And maybe I get some on my finger. Well, now I'm gonna have to lick it off. No sense in wasting it. icon_lol.gif

Oreos in chocolate cake or vanilla? ...Just trying to get the flavor right for when I imagine myself eating them! Sounds delish either way, but I like the sound of Melvira's peanut butter oreo with peanut butter bc!

((drooling))

Not just chocolate cake, but DARK chocolate cake!! icon_biggrin.gif

heathercarnold: woudl you mind sharing your cheesecake recipe? My husband and I love cheesecake and oreos.


Melvira: That recipe sounds yummy. I'm going to have to try it! Don't feel bad, I can't pass double stuffed oreos. At least you have an excuse...your pregnant! But I might be joining your pregnant train...just waiting to find out...

Ok, this is a going to a strangely mixed post BUT...1.) can you freeze the cupcakes with the whole oreo baked into it? 2.) I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and have been in and out of labor for 3 days now! UGGH! DO you guys recall the character that Tim Conway played in the Carol Burnett Show who shuffled everywhere he went? That is me! OK, I have completely dated myself by talking about the Carol Burnett Show! -Meg

It took DH and I six months before we decided to just stop trying - we were going to actively try again in a few months. The minute we made the decision to stop we got preggers! I know it's a stress thing. For our second baby we didn't worry about it all and got preggers the first month.

My best! thumbs_up.gif

MacsMom first of all, sorry for changing your post some. Have your tried the oreo thing yet? How did it work? Keep me posted.

My husband and I tried for 6 months with our first then gave up and got pregnant. Just thought I might have actually been this time cause I was so late. Were really not trying. Oh well all in God's time.
