Oreo Bundt Cake


This cake is a real eye-catcher if I do say so myself! The contrast between the dark cake and the bright white icing makes it look so impressive while being so simple. Plus the taste! Who could resist an oreo chocolate cake, I mean come on. That would be some serious will power that even I do not posses.
Although I must say, I don't quite have a knack for bundt cakes yet. It seems like they always don't come out of the pan well enough. There is always a good chunk or two missing. At least you can cover this one up with icing? Always worth a shot.

Oreo Bundt Cake

3/4 cup                             cocoa powder             
1 tsp                                 baking soda

1/2 cup                             milk
1 cup                                unsalted butter

In a large measuring cup, combine the milk, and sour cream. Set aside. Place butter and sugar into a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Add the vanilla. Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating withe sour cream mixture. Beat until just combined. Fold in the cookie chunks. Spread the batter evenly into the pan. bake for 55 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let it cool slightly before inverting and turning out the cake. Place onto a cooling rack with a baking sheet underneath. Let it cool completely.

Marshmallow Glaze

1/2 cup                              icing sugar
2-3 tbsp                             cream

Place the marshmallow fluff and icing sugar into a large measuring cup, stir well to combine. Add the cream and mix until smooth and glossy. Add more cream until desired consistency is reached. Pour the glaze onto the cooled cake and top with oreo cookie chunks. Enjoy!


I had actually made this quite a while ago, but never got around to posting the pictures and recipe. I thought that I might not bother, but how could I deprive you guys of a great and easy recipe.
Also, Halloween is coming up very soon! I think this black and white cake would make a great subtle Halloween dessert for any party. (Are you getting that ghostly vibe too?)
