Chipotle Mexican Steak and Cilantro Lime Rice Burritos
This cake? Yeah, I know. It’s kind of ridiculous.
But it also just kind of happened.
Like I have no idea how I came up with this.
Ok, well I do. I was brainstorming and brainstorming some more (I brainstorm A LOT! Actually, I brainstorm so much that by the end of the day my brain normally hurts) when I came across a picture of a traditional vanilla Gooey Butter Cake. See, before I saw this picture I had no idea what gooey butter cake was. Obviously, the name intrigued me.
Really, who does not love the words gooey, butter and cake?
All in the same sentence too. That should probably be illegal.
Sometimes my brainstorming can get me into trouble.
Example? You’re looking at it.
For some reason I had Oreos floating around in my brain. Seriously, all I wanted to do was make something containing Oreos. I think it was because I have yet to post an Oreo recipe on this blog.
Wait! What am I saying! Umm, I made the most delicious Homemade Peanut Butter Oreos. They were incredible! Shoot, I totally should have made those and stuffed them into this cake!
Next time. For sure.
So here was my thought process:
Gooey Butter Cake + Oreos = Good
Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake + Oreos = Better
Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake + Oreos + Extra Chopped Oreos and a semi-hard Chocolate Peanut Butter top layer = Ridiculous
Really guys, the picture say it all. These are fudgey on the bottom, gooey in the middle and crunchy on top. It is a whole lot of awesomeness!

This looks insane! Maybe scoring the top layer will help prevent cracks. This would be great with Halloween or the red Winter Oreos!
Oh that would be SO fun! Thanks Stephanie!
My antique “Ooey-gooey Louie Cake” recipe (called for yellow cake mix, but works with any flavor) which can be the base for this wonderous Oreo topping. It is a little simpler:
1 box 2-layer cake mix
1 stick margarine
1 lb. confectioners sugar
1 8-oz pkg. cream cheese.
Preheat oven to 350˚. Grease 9-by-13 pan and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Mix cake mix, melted margarine, and 2 eggs. Spread in pan.
Beat until smooth confectioners sugar, cream cheese, 2 eggs. (Could add the 3 Tblsp. cocoa powder here, too, for chocolate filling.) Pour over first layer.
Bake 30 minutes.
Then proceed with the wonderful chocolate goodness in the recipe above.
This is good with lemon or strawberry cake mix and a little lemon extract and juice or pineapple in the filling layer.
Wow! That sounds so good, Teri!
This looks really yummy! Think that I would like to add nuts pecans or walnuts on the top.
Yum! That sounds so good! Thanks Pat!
Everything goes better with an Oreo added to it! This looks great…can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing! Debbie @ madefrompinterest.net
