This is sooooo yummy! I made it for my boyfriend's dad's 81st birthday and it was a hit! I followed the directions exactly (I used a tiny bit more vanilla because I am a huge vanilla lover) and no need to adjust anything, it came out perfect. Kittencal I am in love with all of your recipes, you are a very amazing cook and baker!
Made for Easter Egg Hunt Game. SIMPLE FUN and YUMMY! So easy and the cake melts in your mouth.We all enjoyed this cake.
I disagree with the other review. This is one of the best cakes I've ever tasted. No need to make double the frosting at all - it is just right with the "prescribed" amount. You can always use less confectioners sugar if you want to reduce the sweetness factor. I highly recommend this recipe. The white creamy centers of the Oreos that get mixed in the cake with the chocolate crumbs add a nice sweetness and moistness. Two thumbs up for me.
The idea of putting oreo cookie crumbles in a regular cake mix worked quite well. I chopped them quite finely and they were distributed throughout the batter and did not sink during baking. My lower rating is due to the overly sweet taste of the frosting. I did double the amount because I was making a double layer cake and wanted to make sure there was enough to frost both layers generously. Maybe that was the problem--too much frosting overwhelmed the cake. It made an attractive cake when I pressed the oreo crumbs around the outside layers. The frosting set up well in the refrigerator after a couple of hours. My recommendation would be to use another frosting (less sweet) recipe.
