Any regular reader will know I love a cake challenge. This week, my pals at Statuo moved into their new office, which seemed the perfect opportunity for an office warming bundt! Now I know what I like, but I wanted something that his team would absolutely love, so I set down the challenge... You give me a theme, and I'll whip it into a cake. Turns out Oreos are their favourite biscuits, so off I trot.
Similarly to the Bourbon, KitKat, Custard Cream, cookie and Penguin bundts I've made, I wanted the cake to taste of actual Oreos, so I blitzed some up in our Nutribullet (they would be so proud...) and mixed them into the batter. Bingo. I also baked some little Oreos inside the cake. I wish I could show you how this tuned out, but unfortunately, it was eaten too quickly! It works though...
- Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 c
- Prepare a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch with Cake Release spray and dust with flour mixed with a little cocoa.
- Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Add the extract.
- In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
- Pour the yoghurt and chocolate milk into a jug and stir in the chocolate spread.
- Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yoghurt mix. Repeat this until everything is combined.
- Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
- Pour the mix into your prepared tin.
- Poke in the mini Oreos, ensuring they are well covered.
- Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
- Leave the cake to cool for ten minutes before removing from the tin.
- When the cake is fully cool, mix the icing sugar with enough water to make a runny icing. Tip over the cake and decorate with more Oreos!
