Oreo Marble Cake

When I was resting at home last Monday, I decided to bake a simple cake. When I saw Ellena's post on the marble cake, I felt like having some. The recipe was in fact from Ju. Without hesitation, I got my kitchen accessories and ingredients and started baking.
Since I still have some crushed oreos in my cupboard, I decided to replace the cocoa powder with my crushed oreos.
Recipe for Oreo Marble Cake, modified from Ju's Marble Cake.
(Makes a 7" cake)

Ingredients:
225g Unsalted butter, softened
185g Caster sugar
4 Eggs
225g Self-raising flour
3 tbsp Whole milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
40g Ground Oreos

Method:
1. Line the bottom of a 7" cake tin with a greaseproof paper.
2. Beat the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
3. Fold in the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
4. Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Add the crushed oreos into one of the bowls and mix well.
5. Alternate the two batters. Otherwise, just pour one batter in and add the other one.
6. When all the mixture has been used up, take a skewer and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.
7. Bake the cake at 180C for 65 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
8. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.

The cake turned out to be really nice and solid. It's not too crumbly. The cake tasted even better the next day. This is definitely a keeper for me!

Hi DG,
I totally agree! Nothing can go wrong with oreos! There is already durian with oreo, what else can be worst? Hahaha...

Hi Judy,
Thanks! I've recovered, but still eating light. :) This cake is really buttery and fragrant.

Hi Ju,
Thanks for your recipe. The cake was really nice!

Hi quizzine,
Yup, new oreo butter cake. :)

Hi Jean,
Ah, it didn't occur to me initially too! Until I saw the ground Oreos that I had still in the cabinet. Otherwise, I won't be so diligent to ground them! :p *by discovery*

Hi HHB,
You're not an Oreo fan? Yes, I think the swirl would have been nice. Unfortunately, I didn't add the batter nicely, ended up with a lump of Oreo portion. :p

This is awesome! I never thought Oreo can be this flexible in baking. Seriously a lot of oreo recipes I saw in other blogs are more in cookies and other stuff. This one is different because you included it in the cake itself. This might be the best recipe after I get my Food Safety Certification. *crossfingers*
