Perfect Oreo Cake

Oreo Cake is the appropriate blend of pretty moist chocolate cake from scratch layered with candy buttercream frosting made with beaten Oreo cookies. Oreo Cake is wet chocolate cake layered with buttercream frosting that’s combined with Oreo cookie crumbs. this is an Oreo version of my go-to easy Chocolate Cake, that's my all-time favorite as it uses espresso to in reality upload a further intensity of taste to the chocolate. I advise saving some Oreos on the side, for redecorating the cake later.

You could use chocolate frosting for this recipe, but i really like how the lighter color of the buttercream looks agains the darkish color of the Oreos. I’ve also made this with a drizzle of chocolate ganache over complete Oreos at the pinnacle of the cake.

Chocolate Cake

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hot coffee you can substitute boiling water

Oreo Frosting

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup oreo crumbs finely processed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter and dust with cocoa powder two 9" cake pans.
  2. In a stand mixer on low speed mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt,
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla then add it to the stand mixer on low then medium speed until just combined and finally add in the water carefully and stir it in by hand until just combined (do not turn on the mixer, it may splash on you).
  4. Pour half of the batter into each of the pans and bake for 30-35 minutes then remove, let cool completely and frost with the chocolate frosting.
  5. To make the frosting add the butter to your stand mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds until light and fluffy then add in the powdered sugar and milk in alternating amounts.
  6. Add in the oreo crumbs and vanilla last until just combined.
  7. To frost cleanly without crumbs showing through add frosting to the middle of the cake as normal, a thin layer to the outside of the cake and refrigerate 2 hours before frosting a second finished layer.
