Style: Classic

For the Cake:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup chopped Oreo cookies
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Oreo cookies (as many as desired), chopped
For the Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a sheet pan with cooking spray and set aside. (I use an 11 x 17 jelly roll pan.)
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  5. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter on medium-low heat.
  6. Whisk in the cocoa powder and hot water.
  7. Turn up the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil.
  8. Add the melted butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  9. Stir in the milk mixture and mix until ingredients are combined.
  10. Stir in the chopped Oreo cookies.
  11. Pour the batter into the prepared sheet pan and spread evenly.
  12. Bake the cake for 17-19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
For the Frosting:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.
  2. When the cake is completely cool, frost the cake with the cream cheese frosting.
  3. To top it off, sprinkle top of cake with roughly chopped Oreo cookies.
