Oreo Chocolate Cake Recipe

A soft and rich Chocolate Cake sits on top of a crunchy, buttery Oreo base. All underneath a bed layer of whipped cream under a bed of fresh and sweet fruits.

Oreo Chocolate Cake Recipe                                                                                 Recipe by iSaamuel

15 Oreo cookies, crushed,
2 Tablespoons of Melted Butter,

45g of Bread flour,
2 Egg Yolks,
3 Tablespoons of Melted Chocolate Chips,
3 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder,
2 Tablespoons of Oil,
3 Tablespoons of Milk,

2 Egg Whites,
50g of Sugar,

Whipped Cream, Fruits, Oreo cookies, and Powdered Sugar to garnish.

Oreo Cookie base
1. Crush 15 Oreo cookies in a plastic food bag with a rolling pin. Get rid of your stress and whack the cookies hard into fine crumbs. You could also use a food processor, but that's not fun!
2. Mix the crushed Oreo cookie crumbs with the melted butter until they are moistened like wet sand.
3. Pour the cookie mixture into a lined cake pan and press evenly across the base. Set aside in the fridge.

Making the Chocolate Cake

1. In a large mixing bowl, place the bread flour, egg yolks, melted chocolate chips, cocoa powder, oil, and milk. Whisk everything for about 3-5 minutes until the mixture is thick, and gluten strands should appear.
2. In another bowl, whisk egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form and the mixture is glossy. Use your elbow grease or electric beaters if you'd like!
3. Gradually fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture gently, until everything is well combined. Do not over mix as this would deflate the air from the egg whites resulting in a hard, dense cake.
4. Pour the complete Chocolate Cake batter on top of the Oreo cookie base. Bake at 180C for 15-20 minutes.Let the cake cool before decorating.
5. To decorate, whip 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream with 1 tbsp of sugar until stiff peaks form. Transfer this mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe and decorate!

Garnish the cake with fresh fruits such as raspberries and blueberries or chocolate shavings and enjoy!
