So perhaps you’ve already seen my Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownie Layer Cake or my Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Dough Brownie Layer Cake? Maybe you’ve even made one of them. They’ve been pretty popular and it’s been some time since I posted a fun new version. I finally decided what flavor to go with and I hope you’re as pumped as I am.

Red velvet and oreo make a splendid combination. I’ve heard some say that red velvet cake is like chocolate cake, but really it isn’t. It has a little bit of cocoa, but not nearly as much as you’d find in an actual chocolate cake. However, chocolate is a terrific compliment to red velvet and Oreos are chocolate at it’s best.

And since red velvet and cream cheese frosting go together like peanut butter and jelly, I switched up the cookie dough by using some butter and some cream cheese. It gives the cookie dough a bit of that cream cheese frosting flavor so that you get all your favorite things in one cake – red velvet, chocolate, oreo, cookie dough and cream cheese. I mean are you exploding with excitement yet?!

This cake isn’t hard to put together, but there are a number of steps. Start off by making the red velvet blondies. Once those are made and cooling, you can make the cookie dough.

The cookie dough is eggless, so it’s safe to eat. It’s also got quite a bit of Oreo crumbs in it, making it take on a lot of their flavor. If you are a big Oreo fan like myself, you will love it!

To layer everything together, you’ve got a couple options. First, you could just stack it all. The cookie dough is pretty thick, so you could layer the blondies and scoop the cookie dough in between the layers. You’d end up with a messier look that way.

To have the cleaner edges that I have, you can put the cake together in sections in a cake pan. There are more details in the instructions below, but basically you layer one blondie and layer of cookie dough at a time. By doing it in a cake pan, you can press the cookie dough into the sides of the pan and get that nice clean edge.

Once everything is layered, cover it in white chocolate ganache! Don’t you just love that drizzle of chocolate? Yum! And topping it with chocolate frosting and Oreos is quite literally the icing on the cake. Beautiful, unique and delicious! And of course, sweet. This cake is not for the faint of dessert heart. πŸ™‚

Oreo Cookie Dough Red Velvet Blondie Layer Cake

Yield: 8 inch cake

Layers of red velvet blondie and eggless oreo cookie dough!

Ingredients:

Red Velvet Blondies

1 cup + 2 tbsp (224g + 28g) salted butter
2 1/4 cups (216g) brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 tsp white vinegar
3 eggs
2 oz red food color
1 1/2 tbsp (11g) cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups (325g) flour
1 1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Oreo Cookie Dough

1/2 cup (112g) butter, room temperature
8 oz (226g) cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cups (310g) sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups (293) all purpose flour
3-4 tbsp (45-60ml) milk
1 1/2 cups (162g) Oreo crumbs

White Chocolate Ganache

12 oz white chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy whipping cream, divided

Chocolate Frosting and Toppings

1/4 cup (56g) butter
1/4 cup (48g) shortening
1 3/4 cups (201g) powdered sugar
1/4 cup (29g) cocoa
1 tbsp (15ml) water or milk
7 Oreos
Oreo crumbs

Directions:

1. Line the bottoms of three 8 inch cake pans with parchment paper and grease the sides. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, then transfer to a mixing bowl.
3. Add brown sugar and whisk to combine.
4. Add the vanilla, vinegar, eggs and red food color and whisk until incorporated.
5. In another bowl, combine dry ingredients.
6. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
7. Divide batter evenly between cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes.
8. Remove blondies from oven and allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to finish cooling. While blondies cool, make cookie dough.

To make the cookie dough:

1. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
2. Mix in vanilla extract.
3. With the mixer on low speed, add flour and mix until combined.
4. Add milk and Oreo crumbs and mix until combined. Dough will be thick. Set aside.

To assemble cake:

Once the blondies are cool, it’s time to put the layers together. You can pile the cookie dough onto the blondies, stack the layers and leave messy layers, or use the method I used for having clean edges/sides of the cake.
1. Place half of white chocolate chips in a metal bowl.
2. Microwave half of the heavy cream until it starts to boil. Remove from microwave and pour over white chocolate chips.
3. Cover bowl with saran wrap for 5-7 minutes.
4. Whisk white chocolate and cream until smooth.
5. Using one of the same 8 inch cake pans that you baked the blondies in, put parchment paper or saran wrap in the bottom and up the sides of the pan. You will use it to lift the layers out of the pan.
6. Place the first blondie into the bottom of the pan.
7. Add about 3 tbsp of white chocolate ganache on top of the brownie and spread into a thin layer. This will help the cookie dough stick to the blondie.
8. Put half of the cookie dough into the pan and spread evenly on top of the blondie.
9. Remove the first two layers from the cake pan and place on it’s serving dish.
10. Repeat steps 5-8 with the second blondie and remaining cookie dough, then remove from pan.
11. Put another 3 tbsp of white chocolate ganache on top of the cookie dough layer from the first section of cake and spread thinly.
12. Place the second section of cake onto the first.
13. Put another 3 tbsp of white chocolate ganache on top of the cookie dough layer on top (the fourth layer) and spread thinly.
14. Top with remaining blondie.

To finish off the cake:

1. Place remaining white chocolate chips in a metal bowl.
2. Microwave remaining heavy cream until it starts to boil. Remove from microwave and pour over white chocolate chips.
3. Cover bowl with saran wrap for 5-7 minutes.
4. Whisk white chocolate and cream until smooth.
5. Allow to sit for a few minutes until it just starts to thicken, then pour over the top of the cake and spread to the edges with an offset spatula, allowing it to drip down the sides.
6. Place cake in refrigerator to firm and make the chocolate frosting.
7. To make the frosting, beat the shortening and butter together until smooth.
8. Slowly add the powdered sugar and cocoa and mix until smooth.
9. Add water or milk and mix until smooth.
10. Remove cake from fridge, and pipe icing onto the top edge of the cake. Top with Oreos and Oreo crumbs. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Let sit on the counter for at least an hour before serving to soften enough to cut.

Enjoy!
