Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake

If you love to bake, you probably like to try new recipes. Cakes can be especially fun, since they come in all shapes, sizes, and can be decorated to suit any occasion.

While making a cake from scratch can seem intimidating, Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake will taste like a from-scratch cake, but starts with a box! Between the layers and the shape of this gorgeous cake, no one will ever know it starts with a mix.

What’s Special About Oreo Cheesecake Cake?

Made in a bundt pan, Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake is beautiful, easy to cut and serve, and layered to perfection. The toppings include cream cheese frosting, hot fudge, and chopped Oreos. The combination is delectable.

You’ll notice that the chocolate cake section calls for sour cream. No, that isn’t a typo. If you’ve never tried this trick before, you’re in for a treat.

Adding sour cream helps the cake turn out moist and rich. It’s just one smart trick bakers use to up their boxed cake game. Due to the perishable ingredients (eggs, cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream), be sure to store this cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Generously grease a large bundt pan with Crisco and coat it with a mixture of 50% flour and 50% cocoa powder. Do not skip this step, it is important to help the cake release from the pan!

4  Then spread the Oreo cheesecake over top of the cake batter and try to spread it evenly.

5  Finally, cover the cheesecake layer with the remaining cake batter. Bake at 350° F for 45-52 minutes. Note that baking times will vary by oven and pan type. To test the cake for doneness, insert a knife into the cake, if the knife comes out clean, the cake is done.

6  Allow the cake to cool for at least 15-20 minutes and gently run a knife around the sides of the pan to help release the cake from the sides of the pan. Turn the cake onto a pan by placing the pan on the top of the cake and use two hands to invert it. Allow the cake to cool completely.

Next add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and beat until the ingredients are well combined. Then slowly add the heavy cream, one teaspoon at a time until the cream cheese reaches your desired consistency. It should still be thick, not watery, but it should run o your spoon without too much effort.

Place the cream cheese in a piping bag and cut o the edge of the piping bag about 1⁄4-inch from the bottom. Pipe the cream cheese frosting along the top and sides of the cake.

 Finally, sprinkle more crushed Oreos over top. Keep this cake refrigerated in an air tight container.
