Who can say no to an Oreo Cookie? I am still yet to meet someone who dislikes Oreo's. These are very popular amongst kids as well as older generations. During my visit to US last year I understood the true craze of these cookies! Probably every trolly in the supermarket had big packs of Oreo's. Its packing also states "America's Favorite Cookie"! Oreo cookies are probably one of the oldest cookies available since 1920's. I have seen them being used in ice creams, milkshakes, cakes, puddings, fudges etc. I too enjoy these cookies especially with a cold glass of milk. Oreo's are so famous that it even has Oreo Cookie Day which is celebrated on March 6th.



 I too was tempted to use Oreo cookies in my bakes and I truly believed they would go wonderfully well with fresh cream cakes! Plus there is something very intriguing about the black and white combination! The cake is very easy to make and looks gorgeous! You don't have to be a skilled cake decorator to get the perfect finish, anyone can make it!

Oreo Cookies Chocolate Cake
Serves 10-12
Ingredients for Chocolate Sponge Cake:-
4 eggs seperated
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp coco powder
1/2 cup + 2tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder


Procedure for Chocolate Sponge Cake:-
  • Sieve all purpose flour, coco powder, cornflour and baking powder and set it aside.
  • Grease and flour a 9inch round cake pan, preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.
  • Beat together egg yellow and 2 tbsp sugar until it turns pale yellow in color, about 5 to 8 mins.
  • In a separate clean vessel using clean blender beat egg white for about 2 mins until frothy. Now add the remaining sugar and beat on high for 5 to 6 mins until it turns stiff and glossy.
  • Carefully add the egg yellow mixture into egg white mixture, beating very slowly. Donot overbeat and make you do not allow the air to escape from egg white mixture.
  • Now gently fold in the flour mixture. Again do not tend to over mix and be careful not to allow the air to escape. This has to be done as gently as possible using the cut and fold technique. Please see the link1 and link2 to better understand this technique.
  • Once all the flour is folded, pour the batter in the greased and floured baking pan and bake the cake for about 2o to 30 mins, until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Ingredients for filling and frosting the cake
2 cups fresh cream whipped until it triples in volume and is stiff
15 to 20 Oreo cookies crushed
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Ingredients for sugar syrup
1 cup water
1 tbsp dark rum
1 tbsp strong coffee
3-4 tbsp sugar

Procedure:- Boil the water and add sugar and coffee. Cool this mixture completely and add in the rum.


Assembling the Cake:-
  • Once the cake is cooled completely, slice the cake into 3 even layers.
  • Place the top most layer on the cake board and drizzle the sugar syrup using a spoon. Make sure to drizzle is across evenly on the cake especially along the edges which tends to get a little hard.
  • Now add a generous dollop of fresh cream and spread it evenly using a spatula.
  • Now sprinkle about 1/4th of the crushed oreo cookies and chocolate chips.
  • Carefully place the second layer of the cake on top of the first and repeat the above steps of drizzling sugar syrup and fresh cream.
  • Place the last layer on top and again drizzle the remaining of the sugar syrup.
  • Now cover the sides of the cake and top with the remaining fresh cream, if the sides of the cake are not turning out evenly don't worry they will be coated with generous amount of crushed oreo's :)
  • As shown in my pic sprinkle the sides of the cake with crushed oreo's.
  • Decorate the top of the cake as shown in my pic using the remaining crushed cookies and chocolate chips. You can even use whole oreo cookies and line item on the side of the cake as I have done.
  • Decoration part is completely upon your imagination.
  • Make sure to chill the cake atleast overnight or for minimum 5 to 6 hours for all the flavors to blend in well.
  • Serve chilled! Enjoy!

Verdict:- I made this cake for a colleagues farewell party we had in our office. I personally was very happy with the outcome of the cake and its a must try for everyone who loves Oreo cookies!
