Starting the Year as I mean to Continue: filled with cake
My new year's resolution is to go to the gym more (or, you know, at all). I've been pretty keen for a whole week now but all this exercise is making me kind of peckish. The solution? Baking, of course!
My wonderful mother and stepfather gave me a kitchenaid mixer for Christmas and what better way to break it in than with this amazing Oreo cake.
The recipe below is adjusted from a recipe I found on Pinterest. The original called for blueberries but I decided to substitute Oreos instead of fruit because I didn't want to accidentally eat something healthy with my cake...
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups of plain flour
2 packs of Oreos
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Butter a 13" by 9" baking tin.
Cream the butter and the sugar. And the eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each one. Add the vanilla essence.
Gently fold in the flour. Add the Oreos, crushed up a little, and mix until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes.
When it's done - eat and enjoy!
