Chocolate oreo cake

Ingredients:
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup powdered oreo cookies (Separate the oreos and throw the “non-creamy” sides in a blender until you have a powdered form)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup light olive oil
2 large eggs
1 cup full fat milk
1 cup water
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
A pinch of cinnamon powder

Step 1:
In a deep bowl, add flour, cocoa powder, powdered oreo cookies, sugar, oil, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, cinnamon powder, baking powder, baking soda and mix everything.

Step 2:
Add hot water. I usually microwave it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Step 3:
Mix everything until the batter is well-blended.

Step 4:
Pour this batter into a greased/floured pan (Dimensions: 8×3).
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Chocolate oreo buttercream icing:

1 cup softened unsalted butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder (you can add more if you want a stronger chocolate flavor)
1/2 cup powdered oreo cookies (made the same way as above)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup heavy cream + few additional tablespoons to reach the consistency you require

Step 1:
In a deep bowl, add butter and salt. Cream butter for a few minutes until it’s no longer lumpy.

Step 2:
Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, powdered oreo cookies, vanilla extract, almond extract and start mixing at the lowest speed.

Step 3:
Add 1/4 cup heavy cream and mix. Add more and keep mixing until you are satisfied with the consistency.
Tip: If your icing gets very runny, add more powdered sugar to thicken it again.

Additional ingredients and supplies for assembling/decorating this cake:

Spatula
Piping bag
Tip 1M
Sharp knife
Powdered oreo cookies (about 2-3 cups)
Fresh strawberries (rinsed and dried with a paper towel)

Step 1:
Allow your cake to cool on a cooling rack and then cut it in half, using a sharp knife.

Step 2:
Fill it with chocolate buttercream icing and place a few sliced strawberries. Stick the other half of the cake in place.

Step 3:
Then, use a spatula to frost your entire cake in chocolate buttercream icing.

Step 4:
Finally, sprinkle the top and sides of your cake with powdered Oreo cookies.
Be generous with this because those powdered cookies all over the cake add so much flavor!

Step 5:
Fill a piping bag with chocolate buttercream icing or vanilla buttercream. Attach Tip 1M and make little swirls on top of the cake. Top off each swirl with a fresh strawberry.

I hope you enjoy this fabulous cake
