I love Oreos, and anytime I can add Oreos to my dessert I am certainly in. In the past I have usually used Oreos in many cheesecakes but I have never found a recipe that added Oreos to a cake, especially one that I liked… until I found this video tutorial.
The cake itself, even without the Oreo buttercream is so good. It has so much flavor and incredibly moist. So if you are someone who doesn’t like their desserts too sweet I suggest not adding the Oreo buttercream.
Either way you serve this cake, you will absolutely love it.
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup canola oil
2 cups granulated sugar
¾ cup buttermilk or whole milk
¼ cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 egg whites, beaten to soft peaks
¾ cup crushed Oreos (can add more if desired)

Oreos (for decoration if desired)
Preheat 325 F.
Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) cake pans. Set aside.
In a large bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In another large bowl cream together butter, oil, and sugar.
Mix in buttermilk, heavy cream and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined.
Fold in the eggs whites just until combined.
Fold in the crushed Oreos.
Evenly distribute batter into the prepared pans and shake pans to even out and release air bubbles.
Bake on middle rack for 20-25 minutes.
Allow cake to cool in pan until pans are warm. (cake will continue to bake as it cools so do not let cake OVER COOK in oven. Remove cake when moist crumbs cling to toothpick inserted into center.)
Once pans are cool to the touch, remove from cake from pan and place on cooling rack to finish cooling.
Once cakes are cooled completely, frost with homemade cookies n cream frosting and decorate with Oreos if desired
