1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg

Cookie Dough Layer 
 1 cup all-purpose flour (*Bake flour for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. and cool completely)
1/4 cup butter, softened

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy.  Beat in egg until well combined.  Sift in dry ingredients.  Mix together, on low speed, alternating with buttermilk, until just combined.  Spread into cake pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until well risen, set, and a toothpick inserted into cake comes out with moist crumbs attached.  Cool 10 minutes before removing cake from pan.  When completely cool, slice in half, crosswise, to make two cakes.

  1. I like the idea of a cake filled with cookie dough. I bet the birthday cake oreos would taste great, too.

  2. WHAAAT?! I missed them!???? ughhhhh

    oh well. I've heard mixed reviews. At least this cake exists. And IT. LOOKS. INSAAAANE! In such a yummmmmmmmmmy way!

    1. Yup, I think they have some new flavors now. The lemon were good!

  3. I don't even need the Oreos, I just want all these layers!

  4. This looks divine! I made a cake using these Oreos not too long ago, but I must say that yours looks so much better! Great recipe!

  5. well hello gorgeous! that's all i have to say about this cake :)

  6. I agree that I wasn't a huge fan of the cookie dough Oreos. I loved them in my cookie dough Oreo cake that I made though, but you're right you can use any Oreo so long as it's not some crazy flavor. I did really enjoy the mashmallow crispy filling ones though!

    1. Those were better! I mixed them with cake batter ice cream.

  7. Where is everyone finding all of these Oreos?! I swear, the stores by me are so boring, I never see any of the "exotic" limited edition ones. (Although it sounds like I wasn't missing much with these...) At any rate, looks like you found an awesome way to turn a so-so product into a great dessert--this cake looks fantastic!
