Me and my boyfriend made this cake for Valentines day (heart shaped tin optional!) and it was a taste sensation! We didn't follow one particular recipe but kind of combined a few different ones.
First we made a plain sponge, just mix the following ingredients together in a bowl:
- 225g (8 oz) self-raising flour
- 225g (8 oz) butter, at room temperature
- 225g (8 oz) caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Then layered whole oreos on the bottom of a greased cake tin and poured the mixture on top, and cooked in the oven for about half an hour at 180.
To make the best part the Oreo buttercream! We blitzed up a pack of Oreos, then beat 250g butter, added 300g icing sugar and finally the crushed oreos.
We spread the icing over the top and sides of the cake but you could also cut the sponge in half and put buttercream in the middle if you preferred. We finished it by breaking up the leftover oreos and sprinkling them on top.
I wish we had got a picture of the whole cake, because it was heart shaped it looked so cute! The photo's below are actually of the last slice, which shows how fast the cake disappeared haha.
