Ingredients Used & Alternatives

  • Oreos: Obviously! Just regular, original Oreo cookies.
  • Oil: You can use any vegetable oil that does not give off a strong taste. I mostly use olive oil for all my cooking and baking and its worked well for me.
  • Yogurt: I used Greek Yogurt for this recipe as I feel it gives a better batter consistency than regular yogurt/curd
  • Other ingredients: Baking soda, baking powder, natural vanilla extract, water, granulated sugar and powdered sugar

How to make the perfect Oreo biscuit cake

making the cake

  • In another bowl, add oil, sugar, yogurt and vanilla extract. Mix till everything is well incorporated.

  • Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix using a whisk or electric mixer. Since there is not a lot of liquid in the mix at this point, you are going to get a very thick, dense mix.
  • Now add the water, little by little, mixing in between. Once you have added all the water, you should get a very smooth batter.
  • Break up the Oreos and add in to the batter. Carefully fold and mix the Oreos in till its equally distributed in the batter.
  • Prepare three round 7 inch cake pans* and line in with parchment paper.
  • Grease the parchment paper and the inside of each cake pan with melted butter.
  • Carefully pour the batter into each pan and fill it halfway up each pan
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or till a skewer/toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Depending on the oven, the timing will fluctuate so best way to test is always the toothpick or skewer method.
  • Once baked, run a knife along the walls of the pans between the pan and the cake to help release the cake easily.
  • Remove each cake and let them rest on a wire rack.
  • Using a knife or a Wilton Cake Leveler* cut off the top dome part of each cake to get a flat even surface.

making the cream cheese frosting

  • In a medium bowl, add softened butter and cream cheese
  • Using an electric beater, whisk till you get a smooth creamy texture
  • Add powdered sugar and mix everything together using a spatula. You don’t need to mix to get a very creamy texture. The point of using a spatula is to ensure the powdered sugar is wet. If you use the electric beater, it will throw powder everywhere
  • Add vanilla extract and salt and use the electric beater and whisk the mix again till you get a smooth creamy texture

Assembling the cake

  • To assemble the cake, it will be best if you have a Cake Turntable* or a Lazy Susan*. Its easy to apply frosting around the cake if you have either of these
  • Apply a little bit of the frosting in the center of the turntable and place the first layer of cake right at the center. That little bit of the frosting on the center helps in keeping the cake from shifting while applying frosting on the cake and turning the turntable
  • Apply and even level of frosting on top. Use an offset spatula* to spread the frosting evenly
  • Repeat the previous step for the next two layers.
  • After applying frosting on the top layer, you need to apply frosting on the sides.

  • To get a smooth spread along the sides, you can use a frosting/icing smoother* (which are also used for cutting bread doughs). You can also use an icing spatula* as well but I find the icing smoother to a lot steadier to use
  • For decorating the cake with ‘Oreo bats’, split open 3 Oreos (so you get two biscuits each) and apply some frosting on the cream part of the biscuit. Keep the non-cream part aside, we will use it in just a bit of time.
  • Break couple of other Oreos into small triangular pieces to replicate pointy ears and stick on the frosting part of the biscuit
  • Break Oreos into wider pieces to replicate the wings of the bat and stick on the frosting part of the Oreo.
  • For the eyes, apply little bit of frosting on Wilton edible candy eyeballs* to make them stick on the Oreos.
  • Now take the 2nd biscuit of the Oreo and stick it back
  • Powder the remaining Oreos in a grinder or by packing in a freezer bag and crushing using a rolling pin.
  • Apply the crumbs around the cake on the lower half of the cake as shown in the video
  • Apply a thin spread of the Oreo powder on the top along the rim of the cake
  • Now you have in front of you, an awesome Oreo biscuit cake or you could even call it, a ‘bat cake’.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do you make Oreo powder stick on the side of a cake?

You can grind Oreos in a food processor as this would be the easiest and most efficient way to get best results. The second option would be to pack the Oreos in a large freezer bag and run a rolling pin over it.

Depending on what consistency you want for the Oreos, you control at what point you need to stop crushing them.

Do you put whole Oreos or powdered Oreos in an Oreo biscuit cake?

You can put either. With whole Oreos or chunks of Oreos, you get to see the Oreos in the cake which gives it a good visual appeal and a small bite to the cake. With powdered Oreos, you should be mindful about the proportion of flour and other ingredients used.
