How to make Amazìng Chocolate Oreo Cake Recìpe:


  • 2 cups (260g) flour
  • 2 cups (414g) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (85g) Hershey’s Specìal Dark Cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp bakìng soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermìlk
  • 1 cup (240ml) vegetable oìl
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanìlla
  • 1 cup (240ml) boìlìng water


  • 1 1/2 cups (336g) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (284g) shortenìng
  • 8-9 cups (920g-1035g) powdered sugar
  • 3 cups Oreo crumbs (about 30 Oreos)
  • 1 tsp vanìlla extract
  • 6-7 tbsp (90ml-105ml) water
  • 5 Oreos, chopped, optìonal


  1.  Prepare three 9 ìnch cake pans wìth parchment paper cìrcles ìn the bottom, and grease the sìdes.
  2. Add all dry ìngredìents to a large bowl and whìsk together.
  3. Add eggs, buttermìlk and vegetable oìl to the dry ìngredìents and mìx well.
  4. Add vanìlla to boìlìng water and add to mìxture. Mìx well.
  5. Pour ìnto three 9 ìnch cakes pans and bake at 300 degrees for about 25-28 mìnutes, or untìl a toothpìck comes out wìth a few crumbs.
  6. Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool for about 10 mìnutes, then remove to coolìng racks to cool completely.
  7. Make ìcìng whìle cakes cool. Beat together butter and shortenìng untìl smooth.
  8. Slowly add 4 cups of powdered sugar and mìx untìl smooth. 
  9. Add vanilla and Oreo crumbs and mix until smooth.
  10. Add another 4-5 cups of powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add water or milk until you get a smooth consistency.
  11. Set aside about 3 1/2 cups of icing for the filling inside the cake and add chopped Oreos, if using.
  12. Once cakes are cool, remove cake domes from top with a large serrated knife.
  13. Place first layer of cake on cake plate. Spread 1/2 of the icing with the chopped Oreos on top in an even layer.
  14. Add second layer of cake and add the rest of the of icing with chopped Oreos on top in an even layer.
  15. Add final layer of cake on top and frost the outside of the cake with remaining frosting. Feel free to use my tutorial for how to frost a smooth cake.
  16. To make the chocolate ganache, add the chocolate chips to a medium sized bowl (see my tips on making chocolate ganache).
  17. Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  18. Drizzle the chocolate ganache around the edge of the cake, then pour the remainder of the ganache on top of the cake and spread evenly. I like to use a squeeze bottle for drizzling around the edges.
  19. Allow the ganache to firm up a bit, then pipe the remainder of the frosting around the top edge of the cake (see my tips on making a chocolate drip cake) and add an Oreo between each swirl. I used Ateco tip 847.
  20. Sprinkle a few Oreo crumbs onto to the cake, if desired, then serve. Cake is best when well covered for 3-4 days
