How to Make Chocolate Oreo Cake for Two

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 6-inch cake pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

To make the batter: In a large bowl, add the cane sugar, canola oil, whipping cream, egg, vailla extract, cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sea salt in that order. Whisk until combined. You can also do this in your stand mixer with a paddle attachment or using a hand mixer!

Step 3

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the pan.

Step 4

To make the frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer) add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. Whisk on low to avoid splattering, and gradually increase speed as mixture starts to thicken, until you are at full speed. Whisk until stiff peaks form.

Step 5

Transfer the frosting to the top of the cake and spread out evenly. Crumble the cookies on top.

FAQ's

Can I make this cake bigger?

Yes, if you want a larger cake then you can double this recipe (just hit 2x in the recipe card and it will do all the math for you!) and you can bake it in an 8-inch or 9-inch round cake pan!

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, if you need to make this ahead of a party you can do that. Just be sure to store it in the fridge because of the whipped cream frosting. It does need to be under a cake dome to stay fresh though. So, if you don't have a cake dome you can put in your fridge, the best option is to make the cake and frosting ahead of time but don't frost the cake yet. Store the frosting in an airtight container in the fridge. And store the cake under a dome outside of the fridge. Then you can just assemble it right before your party.

How should I store this cake?

This cake has whipped cream frosting, so it needs to be stored in the fridge. Be sure to store it under a cake dome or in an airtight container as well so it stays moist.
