Oreo Cookie Cake

Oreo Cookie Cake

My kid is an Oreo cookie fan, so made this cake as a treat for a special occasion. It is chocolaty goodness and  real quick treat if you are in no mood for elaborate cake frosting and decorating. Powder some cookies and sprinkle on top, decorate with a few extra pieces of cookies and you are good to go.The cake is basic chocolate cake and the filling and frosting is creamy soft with the crunch of the chocolaty Oreo cookies.

Cake flour- 2 1/2 cup
Cocoa-1/2 cup
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Butter- 5 tsp
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 1/4 tsp

Vanilla essence-  1 1/2 tsp
Buttermilk- 3/4 cup

For the frosting
Cream cheese- 8 oz
Powdered sugar- 1 cup
Salt- a pinch
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Heavy whipping cream 1 1/2 cup
Oreo Cookies- 25

Pre heat oven to 350 degree F and grease and prepare cake tin.
Mix cake flour,baking powder,baking soda and cocoa powder. In a large mixing bowl  beat sugar and butter for three minutes till the butter is light and creamy. Add egg one at a time and beat for another two minutes till the egg is light and pale. Add the dry ingredients,vanilla essence in little additions and alternately add butter milk and fold in till all incorporated. Pour into prepared cake tin and bake for 30 minutes or till a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool a bit in the pan. Run knife around the edge of the pan and invert the cake into a cooling rack.
To make the frosting : In a large bowl beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form and  set aside.
In another bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Into this gently fold in whipped cream till incorporated and allow to chill. Cut the cake into two slices. Take one third of the frosting in a small bowl. Powder 8-10 cookies and gently fold this into the whipped frosting. Spread this in one layer of the cake and place the second layer on top. Spread the rest of the frosting around the cake and decorate with cookies as you desire.
