The Infamous Chocolate Oreo Cake

I’m back, did you miss me? Admit it, you missed the witty ramblings of my mind.

But seriously, I have been way too busy with life at the moment. Who knew a dissertation and endless essays could cause so much stress!

Back to reality, time for a new blog post – finally, I hear you cheer! So I have a delish chocolate cake that I made last week for a flat mate’s birthday.
One of the girls in our uni house had her 21st during the Christmas holidays and we have only recently had a chance to celebrate her belated birthday, so we weren’t going to do it lightly.

I adapted chocolate cake I found on the vegan society website and damn it was good! It looks like a shop bought cake that took ages to make and tastes even better.

For the original recipe click here. My adapted version is below.

Chocolate Oreo Cake
Serves: 12
Time: approx 1hr
Ingredients – for the cake
300g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
300g granulated sugar
375ml soya milk
125 ml rapeseed oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
 
Please ignore the disgusting state of the kitchen sides!
 
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease two cake tins.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl and stir in the salt and sugar. Pour the soya milk, oil and vanilla extract into a small bowl. Stir into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Transfer to the prepared cake tins and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean – mine took less than 45 so check regularly. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack before icing.
Ok, so icing… I admit I didn’t make the icing but I found an accidentally vegan one. Betty Crocker’s chocolate fudge icing and it tastes sooo good!!
 
well hello, I could eat the whole thing I swear!
To decorate
1. Cover one half of the cake with a layer of the chocolate icing and sandwich the other piece on top. You can add jam as well but I wanted a completely chocolate flavoured cake.
 
2. Add more icing to the top of the cake and sprinkle on broken up pieces of oreo biscuits. I used just over half the packets and may have eaten the rest with a cup of tea…
Watch out because this will be gone in no time – get a slice while you still can!
 

Until next time,
