OREO Cake-Pie!




About: I'm "Perpetually Gruntled"

First came fire, then the wheel, then tobacco, then corn cob pipes, then the car, then the plane, then the PEZ dispenser, then computers, then the Beatles, then Rubik's Cube and now God honors us with His latest inspiration: Cake-Pie.

I'm not kidding, this is one of the best things I've ever eaten! I'm a little bummed that the first one got a bit overcooked because it had way more Oreos in it; but the second one was spectacular.

You should be able to learn everything you need to know to recreate this yourself from the video, but here's a step-by-step instruction if you want to follow along or if you're one of THOSE types. (You know who you are.)

STEP 1:Purchase the following:
1.) One box of Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake mix or equivalent. The yellow mix makes a very odd colored final product, so stick with the white.

2.) Check the cake box and buy whatever other items you need to prepare the batter. We forgot to do this and had to make a second trip to the store.

3.) One package of frozen pie crusts. They come in their own foil pan, so WOOT!, no pan to clean!

4.) One (or more) packages of REDUCED FAT OREOS. I know that sounds sacrilegious, but trust us, we are professionals. For some reason the DuPont plastic that Nabisco uses for the reduced fat cookies keeps them from totally dissolving in the cake batter.

5.) Breyers OREO Ice Cream. Don't go reduced fat on this because the regular version is just sooooooooo good.

6.) One package of OREO Fudge Cremes. We found a small pack of these near the check-out.

Now, to the kitchen!

STEP 2: Follow the directions on the pie crust and partially cook it. This will keep it from becoming a gummy mess.

STEP 3: Follow the directions on the box of cake mix and prepare the batter.

STEP 4: CHECK THE PIE CRUST! Oh good, it's fine.

STEP 4.5: Place 1/3 pack of Reduced Fat Oreos in a gallon-sized Zip-Top freezer bag. Crush violently with whatever you normally use to violently smash things with. Break each cookie into chunks that are roughly 1/4 the the size of the original cookie. Fold (which is fancy-schmancy chef talk for stir) the Oreos into the batter.

STEP 5: Add the batter to the crust and cover the exposed crust rim with aluminum foil. Oh yeah, add aluminum foil to your shopping list! Bake the Cake-Pie according to directions on the box.

STEP 6: Cut the Cake-Pie painfully slow with a ridiculously large chief's knife, as shown in the video. Just make sure that you cut through the crust but not through the foil pan. Or cut through the pan and before your bride or parents see it, place something of your sister's or sister-in-law's on top of the counter.

STEP 7: Top with a scoop or the Breyers OREO Ice Cream and top with crushed OREO OREO Fudge Cremes.

STEP 8: Do whatever comes naturally.

That's it, you've made a delicious OREO Cake-Pie! What to do now? Make another one! If you didn't notice, the crusts are sold as a two pack, and there's enough batter in one box of cake mix and 2/3's of a pack of Oreos left, so why not make another for a friend?

This video features my favorite Son-in-law Nathan and a quick glimpse of my grandson "Smuckers" as we bring to life the wonderful Oreo Cake-Pie.

In the background you will also hear my bride and our daughter talking about everything from consignment store shopping to my son's dog peeing on our carpet. Good times.

Thanks for watching and voting, and we'd love to hear your comments after you make your own delicious Cake-Pie. Scott

    Hey! We won a second place prize!
    Thanks to everyone who voted for my Instructable, and thanks again for the comments; which made it even more fun than I imagined. Now, what else should I write about... OH, I KNOW!

    Sure, why not. If it needs to be something original just edit a few of the ingredients. Heck, Oreo has about a thousand and 37 different versions, so you could change it up there if need be. Good luck!

    Nice! Where's the ice cream? Cake-Pie without ice cream is like the Mona Lisa with eyebrows. You won't know exactly what's wrong; but you'll know something is. Thanks for giving it a go!


    I actually did buy the Breyers (sp.?) Oreo ice cream just like you and enjoyed the cake-pie with it haha. Just didn't include it in the picture i guess haha but it still tastes just as good without it too! Again, love the instructable!

    It's the Cake-Pie's doppelganger! So, we meet again, Pie-Cake! You ran from me in Cleveland, but today victory is mine!

    Mu-ah Ha Ha Ha........ (evil laugh)

    A lot of guys ignore the laugh and that’s about standards. If you're going to be a doppelganger, you have to have a memorable laugh.

    Oops, that's what I get for looking in the wrong spot for your name. Sorry about that domestic_engineer. It's this very sort of thing that an evil doppelganger would take advantage of... or was is intentional MISDIRECTION?!?!

    Not likely.
