Instructions

Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, mix together the cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil, ½ cup milk, salt, and vanilla.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the cetner comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the pan and poke holes all over the cake with the handle of a wooden spoon.

Filling

  • Prepare the pudding mix by whisking together the mix and 2 cups of cold milk in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Spread the prepared pudding over the top of the cooled cake and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Frosting

  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whip the heavy cream, ⅓ cup dry pudding mix, and powdered sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Spread out over the cake, then sprinkle the crushed Oreos over the top of the frosting.

Notes

  • Want less cream and more chocolate? Substitute the filling for a chocolate pudding or ganache instead.
  • Make a golden version with yellow cake and golden Oreos.
  • You can also skip the frosting and top with an 8 oz. tub of thawed cool whip.
