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

Updated on March 21, 2011

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!

      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.

      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;)
