Chocolate Mint Oreo Cake

September 27, 2012

I know I’ve mentioned this before but hubs loves anything mint and chocolate.  But he absolutely loathes cupcakes!  So when I found this recipe for Chocolate Mint Oreo Cupcakes I knew I had to somehow convert it to cake form.  It looked so delicious and I loved the idea of  whole Oreos on the bottom.

I decided to make mine in a 13×9 baking dish instead.  I simply just lined the bottom of my glass dish with the whole Oreos and followed the rest of the recipe as is, except for adjusting the cooking time too.  The cake version turned out really well.  The cake was moist and the icing was just the right amount of sweet and minty.

  2. Spray 13×9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Layer bottom of the pan with whole mint Oreos.
  3. In an electric mixing bowl; combine the dry cake mix, dry pudding mix, oil, eggs and milk. Beat together for 1 to 2 minutes, batter will be nice and thick.
  4. Pour batter in pan over Oreo cookies.
  5. Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let cook completely before icing cake.

And just for fun…an up close and personal with Teddy who is now 16 weeks old.  My how time flies, I can’t believe we’ve had him for 6 weeks already!

the cake was good, but I would definitely crush the oreo cookies for the bottom. It was nearly impossible to cut the cake, since the whole cookies on the bottom were hard!

Sorry to hear that Cindy. I didn’t have trouble cutting mine. The oreos in mine were softened a bit by the batter I think. Thanks for the feedback.
