non-stick baking spray with flour
Oreo Double Stuff cookies
cup +2 tablespoons
semi-sweet chocolate chips
instant espresso powder
regular milk fine too!
1/2 + 1/3
light brown sugar, packed
confectioners' (powdered) sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Arrange oven rack to center position. Spray 13” x 9” x 2” pan (I used shiny metal) with non-stick baking spray with flour.
In food processor or chopper, crush 18 of the cookies into crumbs. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and add to the crumbs. Pulse a few times for mixture to come together.
Sprinkle crumb mixture over bottom of prepared pan and press to form a crust. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Keep oven hot.
Chop the remaining cookies into fourths and set aside.
In heatproof bowl combine cocoa, chocolate chips and espresso powder. Pour in boiling water and stir until mixture is melted and smooth. Allow to cool, then stir in buttermilk.
In a medium bowl stir together flour, salt and baking soda.
Using stand mixer with flat or flex beater or hand mixer, cream on medium-high speed 1/3 cup butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar and vanilla, until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs one at a time.
Lower speed and mix in the following ingredients until just combined: 1/3 of the flour mixture, then ½ the chocolate mixture, 1/3 of the flour mixture.
Scrape bowl. Then add the rest of the chocolate mixture and the rest of the flour mixture.
Fold in half of the chopped cookies and pour batter over crust.
Bake for 25 -30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with just a few crumbs.
Allow cake to cool for 15 minutes.
Place a rectangular platter over the pan and invert to release cake to the platter.
Make Glaze: Whisk or use mixer to combine butter, confectioners' sugar, and milk - Stir until smooth.
Drizzle glaze over cake when still slightly warm. Sprinkle the cake with the remaining chopped cookies and crumbs.
*To make your own Buttermilk: Add 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar or lemon juice to a 1 cup measuring cup, fill measuring cup to the 1/2 cup mark with milk, allow to sit 5-10 minutes.
