CHOCOLATE OREO CREAM CAKE

Happy Birthday to Auntie Sally, Auntie Ella and Auntie Marian......... I confess, do you see those little bitty specks in the frosting,  well, that is bits of the crushed OREO cookie!  I didn't wash the beaters after mixing the filling!   Ok, I feel better.   I saw this oreo cake filling made by Laura and told myself I have got to make this. The cake recipe comes from "the cupcake girl" Lizzie, where she takes a box mix for cakes and makes them real special by adding a little of this and a little of that.  
Thank goodness we have birthdays to celebrate!!!   Another reason for a cake. I love this cake with the OREO filling..........Its yet another keeper for the wednesday baker.   Andi

1 package chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cups buttermilk
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
In a large cake bowl add the eggs and mix.  Then add all the other ingredients except the cake mix and combine.  Add the chocolate cake mix and mix till blended.  Prepare 2 round cake pans with grease and flour.   Divided the batter evenly between the two cake pans and bake at 325 degrees following the  timing on the back of the cake mix.
 
OREO FILLING

8 ounce package of cream cheese    ( you can also use reduced fat)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups of Cool Whip (extra creamy)
12 oreo cookies, coarsely crushed   (I purchased 2 snack size packages of cookies, each had 6 regular size cookies)
I crushed the cookies in a pastic bag then put them in the medium size mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients mix with the hand mixer and set aside.
CHOCOLATE ICING:  I had extra icing left
1/3 cup plus 1 TSp cocoa powder
6 TBSp of softened butter
4 1/2 cup cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla  
5-6 TBSP milk or more if needed
In a medium size mixing bowl, add the ingredients and carefully mix and blend the icing.  

Remove your cakes from the baking pans after they have cooled.  If wanted you can level your cakes after they have baked and cooled.  Lay one of the cakes on the cake platter and spread the entire OREO filling over the top ot the cake.  Being careful not to rip or tear the cake.  Level the next cake and place that on top of the OREO filling.   Frost the entire cake with icing.     Enjoy and happy baking, my friend.

  6. This recipe for chocolate oreo cream cake makes me feel so hungry. Thanks for sharing. It's a nice birthday cake. I don't usually use box mix cake for anything, because it has a really artifical taste to me, and I'm worried about the chemicals in it. I think a basic chocolate cake recipe will work just as good
