Oreo Cake (The most delicious cake ever!)

If you love chocolate, you must make this cake.  Chris even said it was really good.  :-)


Oreo Cake
(recipe from my sis-in-law, Ang)
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix {with or without pudding}
1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Mix all the above ingredients together.  Bake at 350 in a 9x13 for 35-40 min or 2 round pans for 25-35 min.
If you use a 9x13, put the ganache on top of the cake, then the frosting.  For the round pans, put the frosting in between the two layers and then the ganache on top.

Chocolate Ganache:
1 cup choc chips
1/4 cup butter
Melt together and let cool.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed whipped topping
12 crushed oreos
Mix cream cheese and sugar together and then fold in whippped topping and oreos.

I was trying to cut the sugar a little bit, so I skipped the chocolate chips in the batter and didn't put the ganache on.  I baked it in 2 round pans and used reduced fat cream cheese, fat free sour cream, and fat free whipped topping.  Could have probably subbed some unsweetened applesauce for some of the veg. oil.  I crushed up a few extra oreos to sprinkle on top on the frosting.  It was still really yummy!

  1. What is the semantic import of the word "even" in this sentence: "Chris even said it was really good"?
