A few days ago, I got the idea to combine cheesecake and layer cake. So here is my first try, Oreo cheesecake layer cake! My fudgy chocolate cake I use in all my chocolate layer cakes, filled with Oreo cheesecake batter. Can you imagine the result? I could do that before I baked this one, but the result was even better!
And the best thing is that it is quite easy too. The cheesecake filling is made in a few steps, and the cakes are very easy too. I decorated the cake with some Oreo cookies, but the cake would look amazing even without them.
Have you missed out my other layer cakes? The nutella and chocolate layer cake is my favourite!
Recipe for Oreo cheesecake layer cake (Oreotårta)
- 3 dl flour
- 3.3 dl sugar
- 2 dl cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate
- 0.6 dl natural tasting oil (I use canola oil)
- 1.8 dl milk
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1.9 dl cold coffee (not too strong)
- 2 eggs
- 3 dl whipping cream, chilled
- 600 g cream cheese, chilled
- 1.5 dl icing sugar
- 1 pinch of vanilla powder
- 1 package of Oreos (154 g)
- 8 Oreos for optional topping
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour four round baking pans (15 cm) and place some parchment paper in the bottom of each pan. I made four thin cakes but if you want, you can make three thicker. You can also use three larger pans to make thinner cakes, but the final result will not be a high cake like this.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and whisk together. Pour the batter into the baking pans and try to distribute them evenly. I like to weigh the pans with batter to be sure to get equal thick layers.
Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Try with a toothpick to see if it comes out dry.
Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool a few minutes before taking them out from the pans. Let cool completely before putting together the layers.
Whip the whipping cream until thick.
Whip together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla. Add the whipped cream and quickly fold it together with a spatula. Don’t overmix. Add the crushed Oreos and mix together gently.
Putting together the cake:
If the cake layers are uneven, you can cut of the top to make them flat.
Spread or pipe out a layer of cheesecake filling on the first cake layer. Add the second layer of cake and do the same thing. Add the third layer of cake and repeat same procedure. Top with the fourth layer and spread out the rest of the filling. Save some filling for garnishing if you want to and top with some Oreos (Optional). Let chill for at least 6 hours. Serve cold!
Serve or top with fresh raspberries for a fruity touch. Or garnish with some chocolate ganache if you really like chocolate!
