I came up with this cake because my boss was transferring from Illinois to Texas and he likes Oreos and yellow cake. So, I whipped up this awesome cake. Hope it is enjoyed and loved by your family.

What a great pound cake! It's super moist, chewy, and delicious. The pieces of crushed Oreos in every bite are yummy. Seriously, when are Oreo cookies not good? We opted to bake the pound cake in a Bundt pan and followed Janette's instructions. We used the extra batter to make cupcakes. Another option for the leftover batter... make a second (smaller) cake. This is going to be very popular.

How To Make oreo cookie pound cake

  • Greasing a bundt pan.
    Grease and flour 10" tube pan or bundt pan. If you use a bundt pan, be certain to only fill it halfway or maybe even less than half to prevent it baking out of the pan and creating a mess.
  • Creaming sugar, milk, and Crisco in a bowl.
    Mix sugar, milk, and Crisco.
  • Blending flour, salt, and baking powder in a glass bowl.
    In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • Adding flour mixture to butter mixture.
    Then add to sugar mixture.
  • Beating egg yolks into batter.
    Beat eggs yolks and add in slowly making sure they are well blended. Add vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Crushing Oreos in a resealable bag.
    Put 1 1/2 rows of Oreo cookies in a large Ziploc bag and crush up the cookies. For best results the smaller the cookie crumbles the better, but don't over crush them.
  • Beating egg whites in a bowl.
    Beat egg whites and set aside.
  • Folding crushed Oreos into the batter.
    Fold in crushed Oreo cookies.
  • Folding egg whites into the batter.
    Last, gently fold in egg whites.
  • Baking the Oreo pound cake in the oven.
    Pour into well greased and floured tube pan, deep funnel pan or bundt pan. (Remeber, only fill halfway if using a bundt pan). Place in cold oven and bake at 275 degrees for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Some ovens are hotter than others so check the cake at about 1 hour into baking to be sure it is not browning or burning on the outside edges before the center is done.
