Oreo Cake

OK. All pretense is gone – this cake isn’t even masquerading as healthy by having fruit in it – instead it is a biscuit flavoured cake. Obvs I wasn’t going to lose weight with apple cake anyway, and the reason I made this one this week is that Oreo cake is one of my teenage daughters favourites, and she is home from uni for a few days and nothing says welcome home quite as well as cake.

Recipe type: Cake
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 225g butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 225 self raising flour
  • 3 medium eggs
  • ⅔rds packet of Oreos, bashed into bits. (bits, not crumbs!)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Something- I used essence
  • ½ tsp of baking powder
  • For the buttercream-
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 500g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • Rest of Oreos - bashed into bits.
  • ⅓rd packet of oreos
Instructions
  1. To make the cake, start by creaming the butter and sugar.
  2. Add eggs, flour, baking powder, and vanilla essence and mix well.
  3. Stir through the oreo bits.
  4. Divide between 2 8" sandwich tins
  5. Bake at 180 degrees for 25-35 minutes - as always, my top tip is cover with foil if top is over-browning while inside still cooking.
  6. Remove and allow to cool before icing.
  7. To make the icing, beat together the icing sugar, vanilla essence and butter.
  8. Divide the buttercream between 2 bowls and stir ⅔rds of your remaining Oreo pieces into one half.
  9. Sandwich the cakes together using the Oreo buttercream.
  10. Ice the top with the plain vanilla buttercream and decorate with the last of your Oreo pieces.

Utterly delicious and utterly fattening. Oh well – there is always February for dieting right!! My next mission is a Lemon Drizzle Cake – yes, more cake with fruit – because it is my lovely man’s 50th birthday on Sunday and that is his favourite cake. Hard to make a lemon drizzle look birthday-ish, as you can’t do fancy icing, but better that he has cake he likes than cake that looks posh I say.
