EASY VEGAN CHOCOLATE OREO CAKE

Well hello there, everyone! I hope you all are doin’ well. I mentioned in the post for my Vegan Cranberry Flax Muffins that I would doing a recipe for my birthday cake and well.. here it is! This past Thursday marked my 26th birthday! I have officially lived for a quarter century. I would absolutely have to say that this last year has been one of the best! 25 will go down as a year of learning and growth within myself. Success! Cake is definitely in order.

For my past birthdays, my mom or S.O. would order a cake from a bakery and it would be all pretty and taste delicious, but tummy aches were definitely to be had. Last year they ordered me a vegan cake from a specialty bakery here in YYC, but it fell short of my expectations, to say the least.
What the fudge man. What the fudge.

So this year I decided to take my birthday cake into my own hands. I had initially planned to do a chocolate cake (OF COURSE) with a vegan bavarian cream filling. I’ve probably had that combo 5-6 times of my last 7 birthdays, in non-vegan form. Apparently, I’m a big fan of that combination! But last minute I decided to go with a chocolate-oreo cake instead. Not sure why I changed my mind, but what the hell, I’ll run with it. Oreos are my favourite variety of sh*tty grocery store shelf cookies, so I’m definitely okay with a little oreo indulgence!

The chocolate cake itself is super simple and easy, nothing crazy. I subbed applesauce instead of oil in the cake in an attempt to mildly mitigate the caloric load of all them oreos. And to be honest, the oil was not missed at all. The icing is actually really simple too – it’s just a basic vegan buttercream with a healthy an insane amount of oreos added to it. So all in all it’s really quite a basic cake recipe, but the cake and icing together is just bomb AF. I am definitely not upset that I decided to make an oreo cake!

So hello 26! There’s seriously no better way to begin another year of life than with a nice giant slice a’ cake!

If you’re like me and think oreos are the GOAT definitely try this recipe out!
Enjoy, friends!
