You can probably tell from this blog that I love to bake from scratch if I have time, but sometimes going the “semi-homemade” route results in some delicious goodies as well. This is one of those times. I was trying to decide what to fix for dessert one weekend and looked through the pantry to see what was available. I had a white cake mix, some oreo cookies, and white or chocolate canned frosting. I planned on making the white cake with chocolate frosting but found a neat variation on the back of the cake mix box.
1 white cake mix
3 egg whites
1 cup crushed Oreo cookies
1 can white frosting (Chocolate is shown in the photo below. I picked up the wrong one. Oops!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions. Stir in the crushed Oreos. Pour into a greased 13×9” cake pan. You can also make this in two 9” cake pans or as cupcakes. Bake according to package directions.
See all of the cookie pieces in there. Yum! Allow the cake to cool completely and then top the cake with the white frosting. I served mine with Watergate salad on the side.
