Eggless Chocolate Oreo Cake with Fluffy frosting


After 3 years of blogging I just crossed my 200th post and to thank everyone for the support and encouragement.
Who can say no to an Oreo Cookie?  I loved the Oreos in the chocolate cake bake because they would go wonderfully well with fresh cream cakes! The cake is very easy to make and looks gorgeous!So I wanted to incorporate Oreos in the cake.SoI just make Oreo-filled chocolate cake, layer it with fresh whipped cream, dust it with crumbled Oreo. , It was all Yum. Moist, decadent, so delicious, but all of it at once was…well…completely and totally overwhelming.

Ingredients:
All-Purpose flour-125 gms
Condensed milk-½ can (200 grams)

Cocoa-1 tbsp
Chocolate powder-1 tbsp
Baking powder-1 tsp
Baking soda –1/2 tsp
Butter melted-1/2 cup (60gms)
Vanilla essence-1/2 tsp
Milk-100 ml
Oreo biscuit Pkt -2
Ingredients for filling and frosting the cake
2 cups fresh cream whipped until it triples in volume and is stiff
10 to 15 Oreo cookies crushed
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Ingredients for sugar syrup
Water-1 cup
Strong coffee-1 tbsp
Sugar-3to 4 tsp

Method:
1. Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cocoa all together 2 to 3 times.Keep aside
2. Pour condensed milk in a bowl. Add the butter, and beat well till smooth. Add the flour spoon by spoon, mixing into the condensed milk mixture.
3. In between, add milk as required if the butter begins to get too stiff. Stir the mixture in one direction only all the while. This will incorporate more air and make the cake lighter.
4. Once all the flour is used up, beat the batter as above till light (5-7 minutes) mix gently till smooth.
5. Pour into a greased cake tin. Do not smooth with a spoon etc. If the consistency is right this will not be needed.
6. Pre-heat over to 180o c. Place tin inside. Bake at 15-2o minutes or till done.
7. Poke with a skewer and check. Cool a little. Invert on wire rack. Cool completely before doing icing
Procedure:- Boil the water and add sugar and coffee. Cool this mixture completely .
Assembling the Cake:-
Once the cake is cooled completely, slice the cake into layers. Beat whipping cream on medium speed for about five minutes, until soft peaks form and add sugar. 
1. Place the top most layer on the cake board and drizzle the sugar syrup using a spoon. 
2.Make sure to drizzle is across evenly on the cake especially along the edges which tends to get a little hard. 
3. Now add a generous dollop of fresh cream and spread it evenly using a spatula. 
4..Now sprinkle about 1/4th of the crushed oreo cookies and chocolate chips. 
5. Carefully place the second layer of the cake on top of the first and repeat the above steps of drizzling sugar syrup and fresh cream.
 6. Place the last layer on top and again drizzle the remaining of the sugar syrup.
 7.Now cover the sides of the cake and top with the remaining fresh cream, if the sides of the cake are not turning out evenly don't worry they will be coated with generous amount of crushed oreo's .
8.Top the cake with Whipped Cream and the whole Oreo cookies. Refrigerate for 1 hour to firm up then remove and allow coming to room temperature before serving.

I was looking for chocolate cake recipes, and found this one. I love oreos, and so do my kids. We eat them together with a glass of milk. It's one of my favourite moments. I'm sure they love this cake. Thanks so much for sharing :)

the sugar syrup to drizzle is the sugar solution that you made? the coffee one? if not, then where is the coffee solution to be used?

when done doesn't comes out fluffy.. and with the said measurements, the batter prepared is thick and not dripping consistency.. :(
