Cookies and Cream cake

Oreo goodness!

Ingredients

  • 3 large Eggs
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 175g Avonmore Irish Butter, softened
  • 1½ level tsp baking powder
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 x 154g packet of Oreos, finely crushed

Chocolate Ganache Filling:

  • 150ml Avonmore Double Cream
  • 150g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
  • Oreo Cream Filling
  • 250ml Avonmore Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6-7 Oreos, crushed

Directions

 

1          Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Grease two 17cm deep sandwich tins and line with baking paper.

2          Beat together the eggs, flour, caster sugar, butter and baking powder until smooth.

3          Put the cocoa in a separate mixing bowl and gradually stir in the water to make a stiff paste. Add to this the cake batter, then gently stir in half of the crushed Oreos.

4          Turn the mixture into the prepared tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until shrinking away from the sides of the tin and springy to the touch.

5          Leave to cool in the tin, then turn on to a wire rack to cool completely.

6          Melt the cream and chocolate over a pan of hot water over a low heat. Stir until smooth, then set aside to cool and thicken.

7          To make the filling, combine the cream, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl and whip until thick. Stir through the crushed Oreos.

8          Sandwich the cakes together with the Oreo cream. Top with the chocolate icing and sprinkle crushed Oreo biscuits on top.
