I picked up an absolute bargain in The Works, a silicone Giant Cookie cake pan for just £1.49. So we came up with a recipe for a Chocolate Oreo Cake that was just perfect for it!
Chocolate Oreo Cake
7 oz SR flour
1 oz sieved cocoa powder
8 oz liquid baking fat (Flora or Stork liquid or you could use butter or marg instead)
8 oz golden caster sugar
4 free range eggs
8 oz icing sugar
4 oz softened butter
6 broken up Oreo Biscuits (we found that bigger chunks made a really great texture)
1 teaspn vanilla essence
Make the cake using the all in one method. Beat everything together.
Fill the silicone cake moulds (or use two standard 7" cake tins)
Bake at 180 degrees for about 20-25 minutes until springy to touch.
Whilst it cools. Make the buttercream.
Beat the butter until soft.
Add icing sugar and vanilla essence.
Stir through Oreo pieces.
Fill the cake with the cream.
