WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
Ingredients for this Oreo Cake
Oreo cookies: I use the regular-sized oreos.
Chocolate: I use semisweet chocolate with 54% cocoa solids because it’s not as sweet as an ordinary chocolate bar.
Coconut milk: I use regular, full-fat coconut milk from a can. Don’t use the ones in cartons because they’re too watery. And if you don’t like coconut, don’t worry - you can’t taste it at all in the cake!
ADD-INS & VARIATIONS
This is a 3 ingredient cake, but you could definitely add a few other flavors to take this cake to a whole new level! Here are a few ideas:
Add some nuts: Peanuts and walnuts are great with chocolate. Also, caramelized almonds would be delicious, too!
Add some peppermint: A few drops of peppermint extract would make a fantastic chocolate mint cake!
Add some fruit: You could add some dried fruit to the filling, like dried cranberries or raisins. Top the cake with some fresh fruit before serving to create a nice contrast in color and flavor!
Add some booze: I think a bit of cognac, brandy, whisky, or kahlua would be amazing with this cake!
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
First, prep your pan. Grease the pan and then line the bottom and the sides with parchment paper.
Then, put 20 cookies in a food processor and pulse until you have fine crumbs.
After that, heat the coconut milk, but don’t boil or simmer it. Then pour it over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for about 3 minutes.
Stir until the chocolate melts and the milk is thoroughly blended.
STEPS 5- 6
Then, pour ½ a cup of the chocolate mixture over the cookie crumbs. For accuracy, I like to pour it in a measuring cup first to measure ½ a cup. Stir everything until a thick dough forms. It'll take about a minute.
Press the crumb mixture to the base of your pan. Even it out on top. I use a spatula, but you could also use the bottom of a straight glass if you want.
Coarsely chop the remaining Oreo cookies.
Reserve about a handful of the cookies (they’ll be used for the topping) and fold in the remaining cookies into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan, over the base. Smooth the surface with a spatula and top with the reserved chopped cookies. Then you put it in the freezer for about 2 hours.
EXPERT TIPS FOR SUCCESS
- Before chopping the chocolate, I made a few shards and curls to garnish the cake. I just pulled a straight edge knife across the flat part of the bar.
- Chop the chocolate as small as you can so that it melts quickly.
- I suggest using coconut milk that's full fat in a can. Low fat or coconut milk in cartons usually have a lot more water content and wouldn't be suitable for this recipe.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
To me, semisweet chocolate is best for this recipe, but if you prefer bitter chocolate, you could use bittersweet chocolate which has more cocoa solids.
I use a 6-inch springform pan, but you could use a pan with a removable bottom. Both pans make it easy to release the cake. If you use a larger pan, the cake will be thinner.
For this cake, I made some simple chocolate shavings. You could also add some Oreo crumbs or leave it as is.
This cake can be stored for up to 5-6 days in the refrigerator. I cover it with plastic wrap, but you could put it in an air-tight container. You could also freeze individual pieces. Just wrap them in plastic wrap and then some aluminum foil. They can be stored in the freezer for about a month.
HOW TO SERVE THIS OREO CAKE
I think this cake is delicious as is, but you could definitely add some whipped cream and nuts on top! Drizzle it with some chocolate syrup or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! Or why not both??!?!?
