Vegan Oreo Cake

I made a cake very similar to this over 4 years ago for a friends birthday. At the time I wasn't vegan so obviously it was riddled with non-vegan ingredients. Recently I was having a brainstorm of things that I've made in the past that I wanted to "veganise". This Oreo cake came to mind, as Oreos are one of those "accidentally vegan" foods, and then I'd just need to make a chocolate cake and use the readily available vegan butter and dairy free milks that are everywhere nowadays.

This cake is very sweet, and that's coming from someone who was once a self-proclaimed sweet addict. So this is definitely a luxurious treat that would make a perfect celebration cake for a birthday.

Vegan Oreo Cake

Total time: 1 Hour Plus Cooling
Yield: One Cake, Serves 6 - 8
  • 200g Dairy Free Butter
  • 200g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 350g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 70g Cocoa Powder
  • 400ml Dairy Free Milk
  • Oreo Icing X
  • 160g Dairy Free Butter
  • 500g Icing Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Dairy Free Milk
  • 1 Pack of Oreos (154g), crushed
  • 10 Oreos of your own choice (I used double stuffed and mint flavoured)
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180˚ celsius. Grease and line two 7-inch round cake tins.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter lightly until softened, then mix with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Gradually fold in the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.
  4. Stir in the milk to form a smooth batter.
  5. Divide the mixture equally between the two cake tins.
  6. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the cakes are risen and a skewer inserted in them comes out clean.
  7. Leave to cool in the tins for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. To make the icing, lightly beat the butter, then gradually add the icing sugar (a little at a time), folding to fully combine.
  9. Add enough milk to make a smooth icing.
  10. Fold in the crushed oreos.
  11. To assemble the cake, place one cake on a plate, then top with half the icing. Place the other cake on top and top with the remaining icing.
  12. With the 10 oreos, cut a third of the oreo off, then place the oreos on top of the cake in any fashion you believe looks good.
  13. And your cake is done, enjoy!
