Oreo Chocolate Cheesecake – Cake


When you don’t know what to make for dessert, a cake is always a great solution. This Oreo Chocolate Cheesecake Cake is a creamy bundt cake with a cookie cheesecake filling and it is topped with a cream cheese glaze and more Oreo cookies.


Ingredients:

For chocolate cake:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For no-baked Oreo cheesecake filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 Oreo cookies (or other similar cookies) – coarsely crushed

For milk chocolate ganache:

  • 8 oz. milk chocolate finely chopped
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

For garnish:

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup whipped cream

Instructions:

To make the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/ Gas Mark 4, and grease two 9 inch round baking pans and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and mix on medium speed 2 minutes.
  • Add boiling water and mix until it’s smooth.
  • Divide batter into 2 prepared pans and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool 10 minutes in the pans, then remove from pans to wire racks upside down (this flattens domed cakes) and cool completely.

To make the filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl mix heavy whipping cream until firm peaks form.
  • In another mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until it’s smooth.
  • Combine cream cheese and whipped cream and stir in crushed Oreo.

To make the ganache:

  • In a saucepan over a low heat melt chopped milk chocolate, remove from the heat and stir in heavy cream.
  • Stir until it’s smooth and pour over the cake. (if it’s too runny cool it a little until ganache is thickened but still thin enough to drip down the sides of the cake).

To Assemble the Cake:

  • Spread filling on the bottom layer of cooled cake, carefully place the second layer on top of filling, then spoon chocolate ganache on top of the cake.
  • Garnish with chocolate chips and whipped cream if desired.

Enjoy!
