Wednesday Eats and Treats: Oreo Cookie Cake


We're big on birthdays around here. As everyone has gotten older, each of the children has settled in on a favorite birthday cake. Here is the recipe for the cake Josiah requests.

Warning: Once you make this cake, plan on repeat requests because it really is that good!

I found this recipe on the Kraft website. Of course, Josiah had to change things up a bit. He wanted a 4-layer cake -- 2 layers of chocolate and 2 of vanilla. I cooked each cake in a 13 x 9 pan, then cut them in half and stacked them. I doubled the filling recipe and put it between the layers and on top, skipping the chocolate glaze.

This great-tasting cake looks like a giant OREO Cookie.

Enjoy a serving of this indulgent cake on occasion, but keep portion size in mind. One cake makes enough for 16 servings, and each serving comes in around 400 calories.
