"I was making a pound cake for a gift for a friend when I came up with this one. It is so good. The person who received it told me that I am going straight to hell for making this (she ate the WHOLE THING IN ONE DAY!) so I guess I will be seeing my mother in law in my hereafter! LOL! It has a nice texture and flavor, it is messy to finish, but the end result is worth it. You really do not NEED to do the icing, but it adds a nice finish. (It will also fill in the chunks you pick off!)"

"delicious!!!! i added about 1/2 cup of cream, and my cake was nice and moist. my only complaint: 1 cup of oreos is way to little!!!!! next time i'll add more!"
"Made this cake for my son's birthday yesterday. Followed the advice of the other reviews and added a half cup of 1/2 & 1/2 as well as instant vanilla pudding AND the extra 1/2 cup of oreos. Turned out beautifully except that I overcooked it a tad. Next time I will stick to the one hour bake time and not worry about the clean knife test.
I also frosted with simple chocolate ganache instead of the ready made frosting.
Everyone loved this cake - I will definitely make again."
"I bet this is a delicious cake made from scratch, but I didn't have the time, so I used the Betty Crocker white cake mix with 1 cup coursely broken oreos and followed the advice of adding half and half. I also found Oreo dry pudding mix that I added - I used about 2/3 cup of half and half, and it came out super deee-lish. Needed to bake it a bit longer, but it is moist and tasty."
"This was a good recipe for sure!!! I made my own cream cheese frosting to go on top (thinking about using store bought frosting gives me the shakes), and I also added the half and half. I still thought it was super dense and a little on the dry side. Next time, I would probably add more half and half or experiment with pudding. I also baked it in a bundt pan. It was prettier. ;)"
"It is SOOO good, we might make it for my dad's b-day!"
"I have made this cake several times and everyone has enjoyed it. I added the extra 1/2 cup of half and half and extra oreos like the suggestions, and it has turned out wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Very good cake, everybody loved it. I made it in a spring form pan rather than a loaf pan. I think it would have been a little better if I had added the cream like others suggested. I used ready-made icing (ick) but used even more crushed oreos as topping, which redeemed it."
"This was a brilliant cake. Easy to make (though I advise thorough mixing) and tastes fabulous. I used 5 medium eggs which worked brilliantly, and it still tasted good/had good consistency with Vitalite (marg) instead of the no substitution butter. The malty taste of the oreos means it isn't as sweet as I was worried it would be. Very good recipe."
"This is a temporary rating because I have never actually tasted this cake. I made it to give to a coworker a couple of months ago and he and his whole family have not stopped complimenting me since! I've made it several times, but always to give away. Finally this weekend my coworker is coming over for a BBQ (he's drawn by the cake!) and I'm going to get to taste this recipe. I do make my own frosting because Betty Crocker is not readily available in France: I mix equal parts of ricotta & mascarpone with a bit of sugar, vanilla extract and crushed oreos. The mascarpone/ricotta mix is my sub for cream cheese and my favorite base for cheesecakes. See you soon!"
"quick to make and very ymmy. I bake mine in a bunt pan to give a fancy look"
"I followed others lead and used 1/2 cup of half and half and still felt it was a little dry. I think maybe next time I'll add a box of French Vanilla instant pudding mix as that always works. My only other complaint was people weren't really sure what the Oreo's were so maybe I need to leave them a little chunkier so it is more obvious. Overall good."
"Excellent cake!!! I feared it would be too dry due to the other comments, so I added 1/2 C half-n-half to the recipe... It came out perfect!!! You should've seen my wife's eyes when I unveiled our after dinner treat!!! Thanks!!!"
"Madame.. You have created a truly INSANE dessert here! I'm not much of a baker myself.. but I wanted to do something for my dad's birthday coming up... something with a lot of fattening sugary stuff on it. This... has to be the best thing I ever tasted! My only thing, though, was I had to bake it for about 20 minutes longer, as it came out all doughy the first time. :O This is a keeper! Going into my family archive of favorites! Thank you much for sharing this! I'll have to try this on my lady friend some time..."
"This was too dry, but maybe I should jsut reduce the baking time. Moister I think this cake would be delish since the flavor is good"
"Great Oreo flavor & easy to make! I did not have a loaf pan that size so I made it in a bundt pan. It was a little dry then, so I served it with vanilla Icecream - yummy combo! I made frosting recipe #140486 for it and it worked great! Thanks for a fun recipe! "
