I never thought I’d make a cake that would call for about 50 Oreo cookies in the recipe, but here we are. And, I don’t regret the decision at all. This, what I am deeming, The Ultimate Oreo Bundt Cake recipe is one of those delicious accidents that happen in the kitchen from time to time. I was trying to find a way to avoid eating the large pack of Oreo cookies my husband bought so my solution was to mask them in an even more delicious thing – cake!
This cake is so soft and fluffy and the frosting is meant to mimic a “cookies and milk” taste. If you don’t like Oreos, well this cake is the base for some of my other cake recipes so you can sub in chopped nuts, some dried fruits, skip it all together and add some fresh lemon or lemon extract. There are as many combinations to this cake as there are Oreo cookie flavors.

HOW TO MAKE IT
The Oreos. In a food processor, pulse 40-50 Oreo cookies until crumbly. Reserve about 1/2 cup of the ground mixture, then set aside the rest.
Make the batter. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, coconut oil, and sugar. Use a hand mixer to cream this together. Once it’s creamy, add the eggs in, one at a time. Once combined, mix in the vanilla paste.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Little by little, add the flour to the large mixing bowl followed by a little of the milk at a time. Do this until both the flour mix and milk are evenly combined to form your batter.
Using a silicone spatula, fold in the ground Oreo cookies into the batter. Mix evenly then set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Bake. Set the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a bundt pan and pour in the batter. Lightly tap the pan on a hard surface 1-2 times to release any air bubbles. Now bake the cake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Do not open the oven during baking time.
Make the frosting. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together all of the frosting ingredients. The consistency should be slightly thick, but pourable.
Decorate. Once the bundt cake is out of the oven, allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before flipping it onto a wire rack. Once the cake has cooled completely, place the wire rack on a baking sheet. Use a spoon to drizzle the frosting over the cake and then top with the remaining crushed Oreos. Done!
