A friend who owns one of the finest catering companies in Detroit made this outstanding cake for several family celebrations, and surprisingly, was happy to share the recipe. Even more shocking were the basic ingredients and simple instructions to put together this mouth-watering crowd-pleaser.
The base is a yellow cake mix, crushed Oreos and chocolate chips form the filling, and a vanilla glaze sweetens the deal and helps to unify the different components of the cake. Try this once, and chances are it’ll become a regular in your kitchen!
- 1 white or yellow cake mix
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 eggs
- 24 Oreo cookies (2/3 of a package)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
- 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 teaspoons milk (or milk substitute)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For cookie filling:
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Mix dry cake mix with water and egg. Ignore package directions, we’ve got this.
In a sturdy Ziploc bag, crush Oreos with a mallet or hammer until coarsely ground.
Pour into a medium bowl. Add flour, chocolate chips and melted butter and mix until incorporated. Set aside.
Grease a bundt pan, and pour in half of the cake batter.
Top with half of the cookie crumb mixture. Pour remaining batter, then remaining cookie mix.
Bake 45-50 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack.
Remove cake from pan and place on cake server. Slide strips of parchment paper around and under the cake to keep the plate clean while you glaze.
Mix powdered sugar with vanilla and milk until consistency is thick, but pourable.
Drizzle over cake. Remove parchment strips. Eat. Share. Repeat.
