Oreo Butter Cake
Since I have some left-over Plain Yogurt in my fridge, I went to look for recipe which has Yogurt in it. Yes, I have found a few and decided to bake this Oreo Butter Cake, recipe shared by Angie. My daughter likes to eat Oreo cookies very much. So this cake will be one of her favourite cakes. The texture is very soft and moist. Yummy!
I use salted butter, and omit the salt in this recipe. As for the flour, I use Top flour (I bought it to bake Pandan Cake). I use hand power using wooden spoon, whisk and spatula to mix all the ingredients.
Oreo Butter Cake
225g cake flour (or Top Flour)
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
85g unsalted butter, oftened
170g castor sugar
2 eggs, room temperature, beaten
1 cup (240ml) nonfat unsweetened yogurt
1 tsp vanilla essence
80g Oreo cookies, roughly crushed
Whole Oreo cookies, for decorating
1) Preheat oven to 180 deg C and grease or line a 8-inch round tin.
2) Sift together all the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3) Cream the softened butter and sugar until light and creamy. I use the measuring cup to pour in the beaten eggs gradually, beat for about 2 minutes.
4) Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture until just combined. Mix in half portion of the yogurt. Then beat in the remaining flour mixture, followed by the remaining yogurt, and vanilla essence. Finally mix in the remaining flour mixture.
5) I put the Oreo cookies in a plastic bag and crush it. Pour the crushed cookies into the batter and mix lightly.
6) Pour into a lightly greased baking tin, arrange whole Oreos on top and bake for about 40 - 50 minutes, till skewer inserted comes out clean.
7) Cool in baking tin for 5 minutes. Remove the cake from the tin and cool completely.
Note: Do not open the oven door to peep when it's baking for the first 15 minutes.
