Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 1-pound loaf pan with parchment paper, letting it fold over the sides for easier removal.

Step 2

To make the batter: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, cane sugar and vanilla extract. Add in the eggs and mix on low until combined. Scrape down the side of the bowl and mix again until combined.

Add the milk, cake flour and sea salt in that order, and mix on low until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure a smooth batter and everything is mixed.

Pour the cake batter into the loaf pan and spread evenly.

Step 3

Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the cake pan. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

Step 4

To make the ganache: In a heat proof bowl, add the chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream, microwave for 30 seconds and whisk to combine until the chocolate is melted and combined. 

Remove the cake from the pan. Add the chocolate ganache on top of the loaf cake and break up cookies on top.

FAQ's

Can I use another flavor of Oreos?

Yes! While I use the Newman’s Own Organic Chocolate Oreos, you could also use their classic version or even their mint ones! I do highly recommend trying the Newman's over traditional Oreo brand as they are so much better for you and taste AMAZING!

How should I store this cake?

Because this has chocolate ganache on top (made up of cream), it needs to be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes! Pound cake is one of my favorite cakes to bake ahead of time. I recommend baking the cake the night before and allowing it to cool completely in the pan. You can even make the ganache the night before as well (store in the fridge). Then the following day, remove the cake and frost it and add the cookies.
