Spooky Oreo Bundt Cake
This is my post for Halloween. I saw this cake about a year ago on Cookie Madness and have been wanting to bake this ever since! The oreo cookies look so cute in this cake. I just love the way it looks and it is delicious too! If you love pound cakes, this if for you.
I probably won't have any more posts before Halloween. I am leaving tomorrow to hike the Blue Ridge Mountains with my youngest son and oldest son. It's about a mile and a half to the top of the mountain we are hiking and I have a feeling it will kick my butt! It's been a very long time since I have done a hike like this so we'll see exactly what kind of shape I am in! I'll let you all know! I'll try and get some nice pictures to post also. Have a great Halloween....my youngest is going as Michael Meyers....very scary mask! He walked around the house with it on and kept staring at me and I told him to take it off. It was making me nervous!
18 whole Oreo cookies (Halloween colors)
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 oz (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cool, room temp
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
3 whole eggs, large, cool, room temp
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 cup sour cream, cool, room temp
Preheat over to 350 degrees F. If you are using a black Bundt pan, preheat to 325 degrees F. Spray a Bundt pan with flour-added cooking spray.
Break the cookies into quarters and set aside.
Sift together flour, salt and soda. Reserve.
Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer for about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then beat in extracts and sour cream.
Add flour mixture and stir just until it is well mixed - it should be fairly thick.
Spoon about 1 1/2 cups batter into the bottom of prepared pan. Form a shallow trench in the center of batter.
Fold Oreos into remaining batter and finish filling pan, spreading the batter up the sides a bit to prevent a dome shape.
Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, until a tester inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes and remove from pan. Dust with powdered sugar and cocoa powder (I only used the powdered sugar).
