Oreo Cake

This is my family’s most favorite dessert! It’s sooo popular and a guaranteed hit with guests. Plus, it’s really easy to make (and take)!

In our house this dessert is known as Oreo Cake.

It’s really not a cake at all, but creamy layers of whipped cream, cream cheese and pudding on an Oreo crust.

It’s sometimes called Dessert Lasagna or Oreo Delight.

This version is different from all the others because it’s made with vanilla instead of chocolate pudding.

Now I am a total chocolate lover, but I swear it’s better with vanilla!

We started calling it Oreo Cake because in my family it was often requested in lieu of birthday cake.

Beware of using birthday candles on it though – the Oreo crumbs can get everywhere when blowing them out!

I speak from past experience. 😀 Mom actually had to get out the vacuum it was so bad.

Luckily, not many people get upset with being covered in Oreos for some reason.

So that’s why we call it Oreo Cake. The original name has long been forgotten, but this recipe continues to be the hit of every party.

Just last week Dad brought one to a graduation party and the graduate didn’t even get a slice it disappeared so fast!

Can’t blame them though, it’s so good you just want to dig in!

Luckily, Oreo Cake is a breeze to put together. File this one under “family favorites” or “desserts that disappear fast.”

Update: we love no-bake dessert recipes so much that I’ve since created some tasty variations. Be sure to check them all out!

There’s a chocolate cheesecake pudding dessert for all the chocolate lovers, as well as a lemon cheesecake pudding dessert that tastes like one of my favorite Girl Scout cookies!

My current favorite right now is this Mint Chocolate Lasagna–it’s to die for!

When the cool weather hits, we turn to this pumpkin oreo dessert. If you’ve never had pumpkin and chocolate together, you’re in for a big treat!

pin this to your dessert board!

I made this for a meal for those who are without homes that we do every week in a local park. Our guests went absolutely crazy over this dessert-raving about it and making sure others were sure to try it. They are often complimentary but this was a striking response. I made a few changes based on what I had - no butter, just crushed sandwich cookies for the bottom crust, cream cheese/greek yogurt dip in place of the cream cheese. Obviously, I am going to have to make this over and over using different flavors of pudding and different kinds of cookies since it was so well loved. Thank you.

What do u mean by let crust cool. Do u bake Oreo with melted butter crust and let it cool before adding prepared filling Thks

It is not baked. The melted butter will be hot though. I just let the crust cool to room temperature while I'm preparing the other ingredients. :-)

This is known as simply Oreo Dessert at our house and has been the star of many a birthday party. We've always used FRENCH vanilla pudding (except once when somebody bought plain vanilla...), and it's waaayyy better with the French vanilla. I know, hard to believe it could get even better.

I have to try it with French Vanilla now!!
