• Making A Texas Oreo Cake…YUM!

    This is one of those cakes that makes you look like a cook whether you are or not. And no, it is not be very best dessert that we make, but it is good, and it does look really cool, especially to the kiddos.


    This very, very easy and I think very pretty cake is actually so simple to make. The video by my dear friend, the late Pam Niblett, shows you exactly what to do. You will find the recipe below the video.

    1 White Cake Mix
    1 1/4 Cups Water
    1/3 Cup Oil
    3 Egg Whites
    1 Cup Crushed Oreos

    Combine first four ingredients in mixing bowl and beat until mixed.

    Fold in crushed cookies.

    Pour into two greased and floured 9” round baking pans.

    Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick comes out clean.

    Cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pans and then cool completely on wire racks.


    1/2 Cup Shortening
    4 Cups Powdered Sugar
    ¼ Cup of Milk (added a little at a time to see what is needed for consistency)
    1 Teaspoon Vanilla

    Beat together all ingredients for frosting.

    Cover top and sides of one layer with frosting.

    Place second layer on top of the first and frost sides and top.

    Use crushed cookies to decorate sides and top of cake if desired.
