Learn how to make Oreo Cake, in this step by step tutorial.

Oreo cake recipe & equipment:

For the Chocolate Cake
(will make two 8″/9″ cakes)
• 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
• 3/4 cup cocoa
• 2 cups granulated sugar
• 2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 eggs
• 1 cup buttermilk
• 1/2 vegetable oil
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup hot water
• 20 quartered Oreos

For the Vanilla Cake
(will make one 8″/9″ cake)
• 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup butter, chopped into 1″ cubes
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 10 quartered Oreos

For the Oreo Filling
• 8 ounces softened cream cheese
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 cups icing sugar
• 2 cups whipping cream (heavy cream)

Garnish:
• crumbled Oreos (about 10)
• Halved Oreos
• Chocolate Ganache (Our Recipe:


)
• Ateco Tip 827

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350F and grease cake pans.

Chocolate cake:
In a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt and mix until combined. Add the two eggs and mix. While the mixer is beating, slowly add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Ensure that water is hot, and add water slowly. Once batter is combined, add quartered Oreo’s and mix a couple of times, being careful not to break up the Oreo’s. Divide the batter into two equal portions in prepared cake pans and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to sit on a cooling rack before removing from pan and allow to cool completely.

Vanilla cake:
In a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix until combined. While mixer is turning, add cubes of butter one at a time and mix until the butter has broken up into tiny pieces and the mixture resembles sand. Add eggs and continue to mix. While mixer is turning, slowly add milk and vanilla. Mix until batter is smooth. Pour batter into prepared cake pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to sit on a cooling rack before removing from pan and allow to cool completely.

While cakes are cooling, prepare filling. In a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside in the fridge. Switching to a paddle attachment in a clean bowl, beat cream cheese until cream cheese is soft. Add icing sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add whipped cream to cream cheese mixture, and mix until smooth.

Ensure that each cake layer is even and level. Place one chocolate cake on a cake board and smooth about 1/2 cup of filling onto it in an even layer. Place the vanilla cake layer on next and repeat with a 1/2 cup of filling. Smooth the filling on top. Place the second chocolate cake on top, and cover the entire cake in a layer of filling. At this point, I always like to place in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes (to set the cake). Apply a second coat to the cake with the filling. Place remaining filling into a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip (I used Ateco 827) and place in the fridge for later.

Prepare chocolate ganache and pour onto the edge of cake, a small amount at a time. Place some crumbled Oreos in the centre of the cake, and using remaining filling, pipe large open stars in a circle. Place a half Oreo on top of every second star. Slice and serve!

I've made this cake and it's delicious! The only problem I had was the first time I made it, it overflowed into my oven so now when I make it, I reduce the amount of batter that I use for the original cake and use the remaining batter for a (2 layer) 6 inch cake with one layer of each flavor.

In the picture it looks like the each chocolate cakes also has a layer of filling, but the instructions seem to only put filling between choc and vanilla cakes. What's between the chocolate layers in the picture?
