Oreo Cake (Eli's Birthday Cake!)

As soon as I saw this cake I knew it would be perfect for Eli's birthday cake! This is a really yummy recipe that I like because it's dense enought that all the oreo's don't sink to the bottom of the cake, but still light and fluffy! It was really good!

Oreo Cake

1 box white or yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1 3oz box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup oil
12 Oreos, coarsely crushed
Additional Oreos for top of cake

Combine cake mix, eggs, sour cream, water, pudding mix, and oil. Beat till smooth. Stir in oreos. Pour into 2 round cake pans that have been greased and floured. Bake at 350 for about 32 minutes, or till toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes before removing to cooling racks. Cool completely.

Place first cake layer on serving plate. Spread about 3/4 cup of frosting on the cake. Top with the second layer. Frost sides and top of cake. Crush a few more Oreo cookies and sprinkle them on top of the cake.

I just used already made frosting from the store. My favorite is Betty Crocker milk chocolate whipped! But if you would like you can make your own...this is the recipe that came with the cake.

Chocolate Frosting:
1/2 cup soft butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4-6 Tablespoons milk

Combine all ingredients and beat till smooth, adding enough milk to achieve spreadable consistency.

Really good with some cookies and cream ice cream!!

We pretty much ate it all that night (with all our family here!) so I didn't get any the 2nd day. That's probably a good thing though!!:) Glad you liked it!
