Chocolate Oreo Cake

It seems like I’ve been making a lot of birthday cakes lately! I don’t even like cake but this one was so good…maybe even as good as the chocolate peanut butter cake that I made for Mitchell’s birthday. This is a chocolate cake with homemade chocolate frosting and a delicious Oreo cream cheese filling.

Chocolate Oreo cake recipe

Here’s what you’ll need for this tasty cake:

  • 1 package Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Cake Mix (or your preference)

Oreo Filling:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups Cool Whip
  • 14 Oreos crushed

Chocolate Frosting:

  • 6 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk

Step 1: Grease the bottom of two 9-inch cake pans and then line the bottoms with parchment paper. Then, grease the parchment paper and sides of the pans. This is the best little tactic to keep your cakes from sticking.

Step 2. Prepare your cake mix according to the box and pour the batter into your prepared cake pans. Bake the cakes.

Step 3: While your cakes are baking, beat the cream cheese and sugar together in a medium sized bowl. Slowly add the Cool Whip and beat until mixed.

Step 4: Add the crushed Oreos to the mixture and beat well. After you’ve helped yourself to heaping spoonful, cover the mixture and refrigerate.

Step 5: For the frosting, whisk together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, then add the vanilla, softened butter and milk.  Beat until creamy. If you like a really creamy frosting, I suggest adding a little extra milk. Cover your frosting. You’ll need to beat it again before you frost your cake.

Step 6: After your cakes have cooled completely (I put mine in the freezer for 5-10  mins) run a knife around the edges and flip your pans to remove your cakes.

Step 7: Pile the Oreo filling on top of one cake.

Step 8: Place your other cake on top and fill in any space around the edges with your leftover Oreo filling.

Step 9: Beat your frosting for 1 minute and then frost your cake.

That’s it! If you want yours to look more like an Oreo, use round cake pans. I had this weird urge to make a square cake.

What’s not to love about a delicious chocolate cake stuffed with an Oreo cream filling! That filling would have been good in a simple chocolate cake I baked last week. Yum!
