Now that we have gathered all the ingredients for our Golden Oreo Cake, it’s time to get baking!

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease two eight-inch round cake pans with butter and lightly dust them with flour.

Step 2: Mix the Batter

In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 box of vanilla cake mix, 1 box of cheesecake flavor instant pudding and pie filling mix, 1 cup milk, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature, and 1 cup finely crushed Golden Oreos. Use an electric mixer or whisk to mix all ingredients together until they are well blended.

Step 3: Divide and Bake the Cake Layers

Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Put them into the preheated oven and bake them for around 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove them from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

Step 4: Make the Oreo Filling

While waiting for the cake layers to cool down, it’s time to prepare the Oreo filling. In a large mixing bowl, combine one package of cream cheese (softened), a small container of whipped cream or Cool Whip, 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, and one cup finely crushed Golden Oreos using an electric mixer. Mix until well blended.

Step 5: Assemble the Cake

Once your cake layers have cooled, it’s time to assemble the cake. Begin by placing a layer of Golden Oreo cake on a cake stand or serving platter. Spread half of the Oreo filling over the top using a spatula. Add another layer of cake on top of the filling.

Step 6: Frosting Time!

To make the frosting, prepare a batch of vanilla buttercream frosting according to your favorite recipe or use store-bought frosting. Next, fold in ¾ cup finely crushed Golden Oreos.

Step 7: Frosting The Cake

Frost your cake with an offset spatula or icing knife, making sure to concentrate most of it on top rather than covering all sides.

Step 8: “Oreo-fy” Your Cake

To “Oreo-fy” your cake, add more crushed Oreos on top as desired, then decorate it with fun toppings such as chopped KitKat bars, Oreo Cookie crumbs, confetti sprinkles or anything that goes well with Golden Oreos!

Yay! Your delicious Golden Oreo Cake is now ready to be served! Cut yourself a slice and enjoy this scrumptious masterpiece – perfect for any occasion!

If you want to put a twist on this delicious golden oreo cake recipe, there are several substitutions and variations that you can make. Here are some ideas:

– Instead of using golden Oreos, you can use regular Oreos or any other type of sandwich cookies. Try using Double Stuf Oreos for an extra creamy filling or peanut butter Oreos for a nutty flavor.

– You can substitute the cream cheese in the recipe with mascarpone cheese for a richer taste or Greek yogurt for a healthier version.

– If you don’t have Cool Whip, you can use whipped cream instead. Just be sure to sweeten it with confectioners’ sugar or granulated sugar.

– For a gluten-free version of this cake, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour. You can also use almond flour or coconut flour for a nutty flavor.

– To make this cake vegan, you can substitute the milk with non-dairy milk such as almond milk or soy milk. You’ll also need to use vegan substitutes for the pudding mix and Cool Whip or make them from scratch.

– Another variation is to add some fruits into the cake layers. Fresh sliced strawberries or raspberries would make a refreshing addition to this dessert.

– If you’re feeling creative, try making golden Oreo truffles by crushing the cookies in a food processor and mixing them with cream cheese and dipping them in melted chocolate. This is a great way to use any leftover cookies.

Remember, not all substitutions and variations might work out well, so be prepared to experiment with some combinations that will result in a deliciously satisfying dessert.

You know what they say, presentation is everything! And when it comes to this delicious Golden Oreo Cake, there are so many ways to serve and pair it that will really leave a lasting impression.

For starters, try topping the cake with some extra crushed Golden Oreos for a playful yet elegant touch. The soft color of the cake and the golden hue of the Oreos complement each other so well that it truly brings out the beauty of this dessert.

For a more dramatic look, consider making Golden Oreo truffles by balling up some leftover cake and coating it in melted white chocolate and more crushed Oreos. This not only makes for a stunning display but also provides an added texture to the rich dessert.

Lastly, don’t forget to enjoy your creation with a cold glass of milk. The creamy sweetness of milk balances out the richness of the cake, making for an overall satisfying experience.

Tips for Perfect Results

Now that you know how to make this scrumptious Golden Oreo Cake, it’s time to discuss some important tips for perfect results. Follow these guidelines to ensure that your cake turns out as delicious and beautiful as possible.

Firstly, make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before starting the recipe. This will help everything blend together seamlessly and will result in a smoother batter. Additionally, it’s important to sift your dry ingredients like flour and baking powder, to prevent any lumps or clumps from forming in the batter.

Another tip is to crush the Golden Oreos into small pieces with a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and smashing them with a rolling pin. This will allow for even distribution of the cookie pieces throughout the cake batter.

For those who want to experiment with different flavors, consider swapping out the Golden Oreos for regular Oreos, or experimenting with other types of cookies such as KitKat or Graham Crackers.

To ensure that all elements of the cake are well incorporated, use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of your mixing bowl throughout the process of making the cake batter.

Once your cakes are baked and cooled, level off any domed tops using a serrated knife. This will ensure that your cakes stack evenly and create a straight line when cut.

When applying frosting or whipped cream on top of your cake, it’s important to create a “crumb coat” first. That is when you put a thin layer of frosting on top of the cake before adding a thicker layer. This way, any crumbs from the cake won’t mix into the frosting and create an uneven texture.

Also, refrigerate your cake for at least 30 minutes before serving it so that it can firm up and be easier to cut without getting squished or crumbled.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be ready to create a beautiful and delectable golden oreo cake every time!

Delicious and creamy. My son does not like chocolate (crazy, I know!) so I make this as a simple alternative to chocolate desserts. This is a lot firmer and tastier if you prepare it the day before you plan to serve it and keep it in the refrigerator until serving. Enjoy!
