Chocolate Cookie Cake

Posted by Lori:

Tomorrow is our annual school carnival.  Student Council members each are required to bring two homemade goodies for the Cake Walk, one of the highlights of the carnival games.  Our son, Jacob, is one of the student council representatives so I got his input for one of the desserts, but the other one I put my daughter in charge of making.  She found this recipe for Chocolate Cookie Cake.  It was actually cupcakes, but she made it into a cake.  She also made a homemade vanilla icing instead of using canned icing.  (I would share it with you, but I don't know what it was and she's asleep!)

Here's the originial recipe from the "Taste of Home Cake Mix Treats" cookbook:


1 package (18 1/4 ounces) white cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup canola oil
3 egg whites
1 cup coarsely crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (about 9 cookies) - Lauren used Oreos
1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting (Lauren made homemade icing)

Additional crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and egg whites; beat on low speed for 30 seconds.  Beat on hight for 2 minutes.  Gently fold in cookie crumbs.  Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.  Frost cupcakes; sprinkle with the additional cookie crumbs. (For cake, grease and flour 9 x 13 inch cake pan.  Pour batter into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes.)
