Who doesn't like Oreos? Well, don't kill me, I sometimes find them to be way too sweet but I love snacking on them when I'm driving or occasionally nibble on them while making a chocolate cheesecake. Actually, that sounds so good right now. No, wait. this post isn't about a cheesecake though. Let's refocus from my dream of getting lost in the taste of Oreos while sitting on a soft cloudy cheesecake to this recipe which is actually quite genius.
Cookies and cakes usually use similar ingredients right. The difference is in the amount of liquid that goes in and makes a textural difference. If you understand this, this recipe is simply too easy to interpret scientifically. If not, don't worry, this recipe requires fewer ingredients compared to other cake recipes and making it will be as enjoyable as eating it.
If you're a pastry chef, look away. You don't want to see me make this. Trust me, I was very skeptical when I made it for the first time because like you, I am also trained in the Art of Pastry and Bakery. But this recipe is mostly for beginners who would like to make a cake without the hassle of understanding the logic behind using cookies to make a cake, So Pastry gods and enthusiasts, please forgive me, but don't dismiss the recipe without trying it.
It's pretty simple and you can do it with any kind of cookies of your choice. If you are using plain chocolate cookies, you can adjust the amount of sugar in the recipe to your liking. The cream in Oreos is just way too sweet so I have compensated for it in this recipe. Feel free to add more if you like.
To make this cake you need to crush whole Oreos, see I've made this recipe super fuss-free. no need to remove the cream bits :P The Oreos should be completely crushed into a fine powder because this is basically going to be most of your dry ingredients. Next, add in sugar and start adding milk little by little to avoid a lumpy mess. You don't want that. You can add the milk in 4-5 batches. You want the batter to have a flowing consistency. Next, add salt and baking soda and mix. Pour it into a lined tin. (I usually don't butter my tins, I guess I'm just lucky that my cakes always slide right out. But if you like, You can line your cake tin with some oil, butter or parchment paper. Bake the cake at 180-degree Celcius for 15- 20 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Unmould and serve with Milk, I think that's the best combination for this. Here's the full recipe:
10-12 Oreo Biscuits
1/4 cup Sugar
200 ml Milk
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Baking powder Salt
