Mint-Cookie Cake Recipe: A Gourmet Flavor For Any Occassion


If you are willing to branch out from the three basic “kid” flavor cakes and try something beyond vanilla, chocolate or yellow, I have the recipe for you!  A great cake taste sensation is Mint Cookie.  A gourmet cake flavor is easier than you think.

Cake Ingredients:

  • 30 mint Oreos crushed
  • 1 package plain white cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Cake baking instructions:

  • Add package of cake mix, then wet ingredients mixing slightly as you add each one
  • When all wet ingredients are added, blend well until there are no lumps
  • Fold in crushed Oreos
  • Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick comes out of center clean

Special Notes:

  • Bake, decorate, celebrate is an excellent cooking guide for pan conversions and cooking times
  • Bake cake 2-3 days ahead of time, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and then foil, and place in freezer; this will make the cake extra moist.  
  • Level, fill, and frost while frozen.  Serve thawed.

 No cake would be complete without a wonderful filling.

Filling Ingredients:

  • 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup powder sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons real vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling Instructions:

  • Cook milk and flour until thick in saucepan over medium heat
  • Allow to cool completely then pass through a sieve to remove any possible lumps
  • Cream butter, shortening, and sugar for 4 minutes
  • Add flour and milk mixture
  • Beat 4 minutes
  • Add vanilla and salt, and mix on high until light and fluffy
  • If desired, tint green
  • Fold in crushed mint Oreos

Use your favorite frosting recipe to frost cake; cream cheese icing not recommended.

Eat and enjoy!

Love this article.I just sttraed a little Un-Diet Movement ;) because I'm so tired of the belief that deprivation and hating your body and beating yourself up is the key to happiness! I'm a health coach and psychotherapist, and I am 100% certain that there is no perfect diet that will save the world (or any one person for that matter). You said it so beautifully, and I am sharing this over on my FB page;)

I am confused. Nobody has psetod what you would put it on. Any suggestions? I like to make oatmeal biscoff cookies they are awesome but I don't like the spread on toast. I am wondering if this would be the same? I like oreos but will I find the right thing to put a spread on? Help me ladies because this does intrigue me.
