When you don’t know what to make for dessert, a cake is always a good solution. This time, my choice was the decadent Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake and trust me, it wasn’t a mistake.

When you don't know what to make for dessert, a cake is always a good solution. This time, my choice was the decadent Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake and trust me, it wasn't a mistake.

Thinking about my next post, I decided to look through the categories on the blog and see what I had not done in a long time. Unbelieavable! It turns out that for almost 9 months, there was no classic chocolate cake recipe on my blog. Of course, you may wonder what is a „Triple Chocolate Cheesecake“? Well, when I’m talking about a classic cake, then I’m thinking of the ones like my favorite OMG Chocolate Chocolate Cake ! Something with good old chocolate layer cakes and filling between them.

Well, If things are like that, I thought to myself, then it’s time to put that right! Of course, the next question was appearing by itself, which cake will we make? In the beginning of my blogging, I was very suspicious towards experimenting and always tried to copy the phenomenal recipes step by step. But with time, my kitchen adventures are becoming more and more original. I start from the proven recipes and change other little things and in the end, I get something completely new. OK, sometimes it didn’t come out best, but sometimes it was exactly what I was trying to get.

When you don't know what to make for dessert, a cake is always a good solution. This time, my choice was the decadent Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake and trust me, it wasn't a mistake.

It was precisely what happened to my chocolate cake, which I decided do bake and broaden my category with chocolate cakes. Whatever the start was, the end result was a really decadent cake which I named Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake.

I suppose that from the title itself, it was clear to you what this was all about. The cornerstone of my cake are of course two layers my favorite Hershey chocolate cake. But what was new this time is a beautiful white filling between the two layers made of a mix of specially scrambled heavy whipping cream and cream cheese,sugar with an addition of chosley chopped Oreo cookes. Of course, in order for the cake to get a really decadent outlook, there is the unavoidable chocolate ganache, this time made of milk chocolate with heavy whipping cream.

And so, with a little more decoration of chocolate chips, my Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake was more than i expected in the beginning. At least as the cake look goes. But, the flavour of my new cake didn’t disapoint either. The beautiful white filling was a perfect fit with the two chocolate layers!

When you don't know what to make for dessert, a cake is always a good solution. This time, my choice was the decadent Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake and trust me, it wasn't a mistake.

And if you are in doubt of your assessment, you should offer it to a natural degustator. As for my Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake , the friends of my husband had the honour, as they came by for their usual „hanging out“. The best indicator of their opinion was the empty plate after they all went home.

Instructions

    To make the cake:

  5. Divide batter into 2 prepared pans and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Cool 10 minutes in the pans, than remove from pans to wire racks upside down (this flattens domed cakes) and cool completely.

  11. To make the ganache:
  12. In a sauce pan over a low heat melt chopped milk chocolate, remove from the heat and stir in heavy cream. Stir until it’s smooth and pour over the cake. (if it’s too runny cool it a little until ganache is thickened but still thin enough to drip down the sides of the cake).
  13. To Assemble the Cake:
  14. Spread filling on bottom layer of cooled cake, carefully place the second layer on top of filling, then spoon chocolate ganache on top of the cake. Garnish with chocolate chips and whipped cream if desired.

      1. My daughter made this cake over the holidays. It was the absolute best cake I have ever had in my life. One thing to note is you have to boil the chocolate sauce and let it cool a bit before you pour it on the cake. Without boiling it at a low temperature for a couple of minutes, it wouldn’t thicken even when cooled. Once we figured that out, it was amazing. Thanks for this great recipe. My daughter will be making it again next week for her grandmother’s 96th birthday.

  1. Seriously, this cake is a showstopper – wow! It looks decadent and insanely chocolatey 🙂 One question, can you please tell me which piping tip you used for the cream garnish on the top of the cake?

  2. This is my contribution for dessert today at our Thanksgiving dinner! I doesn’t look as pretty as yours but I’ll let you know what everyone thinks!

  3. Wandering what the best way would be to take this cake, traveling in car for a 3 hour trip? Would the filling and ganache be set/okay at room temp during travel?

  4. This sounds so good. But I wonder how hard would it be to make it in cupcake size. I make a beautiful cake like this and people destroy it by cutting a slice in thirds and before you know it you have a mushy mess. So thinking I could maybe change it up and make a dozen or so cupcakes the same way…

    1. Hi Susan,you can cut the recipe in half and bake as a cupcakes, but if you want be able to pipe the frosting because chopped cookies will stuck in the tip. You can scoop the frosting, then top it with the ganache, or crush the cookies in food procesor so you could pipe the frosting.

  5. Vera……. this is a beautiful cake… my daughter just asked me to make this for her bff’s birthday.. hope mine comes out just a pretty as yours…… it’s low in calories RIGHT?? lol
    thanks for sharing
    Stella

    1. Hi Carrie, if you think of the swirls on top of the cake, I save some frosting from the cake but I had trouble because the oreo chunks had stucked in the tip, so I had to emty the bag and then crumble the cookie chunks and pipe it again. If you don’t want to bother with that you better just use some plain whipped cream.

  6. I was wondering after you assemble the cake do you put it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve or do you serve at room temperature? Thinking of making this for my christmas party!!

  7. Hi there,

    I’m not sure I understand the cream garnish on top? It’s in the list of ingredients as just whipped cream, but it Def looks like more than just that. .. how did u do it and is it safe to put it on the cake and them refrigerate it for a few hours or will the whipped cream melt?
    Looks amazing!

    1. Hi Joan, I saved some frosting from the cake for garnish but I had trouble because the oreo chunks had stucked in the tip, so I had to emty the bag and then crumble the cookie chunks and pipe it again. If you don’t want to bother with that you better just use some plain whipped cream or reserve some frosting before you stir in Oreo chunks.

      1. You mean you saved some of the cheesecake filing for the garnish? I guess that’s where I’m confused.
        Also can it be made ahead and assembled the next day?

        1. Yes, I mean cheesecake filling. You can bake the cake ahead and make the filling next day, I wouldnt recommend to keep mixed cheesecake filling in a bowl,because it will become to thick for spreading if you keep it in the fridge overnight, but you could try.

  8. I found this dessert challenging to make. I didn’t line pans with parchment however as I didn’t have any at the time so the cake was sticky and was difficult to get out of the pans. I will be taking it to my in-laws x-mas dinner so we’ll see if everyone likes it. It looks like it may be too decadent for some.

  9. Thank you for sharing this delicious looking recipe! I am making it for Christmas dinner tomorrow. I baked the cakes today and would like to do as much prep this today as possible. That way I just have to assemble on Christmas Day. Do you think I could make the filling today as well and refrigerate overnight the make topping and assemble tomorrow?

    1. Hi Summer, as I said to Joann, I wouldnt recommend to keep mixed cheesecake filling in a bowl,because it will become to thick for spreading if you keep it in the fridge overnight.If you already mixed it then you better spread it today (you can place the cakes in the fridge to cool them completely, then fill the cake and place it back in the fridge and make the topping tomorrow)

  10. I am making this for Christmas and I was wondering why you put boiling water in the cake mix? Everything else turned out great! And I can’t wait to eat it

  11. I followed the recipe to a T, but when I flipped the cakes over, they had huge holes/welts/dips in them. ..about 2 per cake. Why might that have happened?

  12. We made it this week. The middle layer was grey with the crushed oreos, and even with the cream whipped to stiffness, it didn’t have enough form to hold as a layer – it just mushed out everywhere. It also started melting within 5 minutes of being out of the refrigerator.
    It still tasted delicious, but it didn’t make up well for us. I might try it as a trifle if I want it again.

  13. Very poor recipe! There is no way that there is a full cup of cream in that ganache. In the photo the ganache looks luscious. With an entire cup of cream it never ever gets any thicker. It runs off the cake and barely clings to the top. I have company coming in a few house and a giant mess. Please check your recipe. I looked at other ganache recipes and none use that much cream. It has to be a typo. What a mess……Do not make this recipe!

    1. Hi Nancy, I’m really sorry that you have a problem with the ganache. It’s not a typo, this ganache was made as it said in the recipe(with 1 cup of heavy cream and 8 oz. milk chocolate)I don’t know what goes wrong with yours, maybe it wasn’t cooled and thick enough before you spread it over the cake, especialy if you melt the chocolate over higher temperatute than it should, or maybe it’s just because of the brand of chocolate or cream that you used.

  14. Vera Thanks for your response. I think I must have done something incorrect with the ganache as it was so very very thin. Perhaps I should have beat it to allow air to incorporate into it. I decorated the cake with a woodland them and made the sides look like bark and even though I messed up the ganache everyone loved the moist cake and cheesecake filling. It came out great. Not like yours with the ganache running down but beautiful none the less. Thanks again for you help. I am going to have to work on this ganache and get it down….LOL

  15. Made this for New Years Eve last night. I need to practice my dribbling technique for the chocolate ganache but other than that it was awesome. Several people gave me compliments saying it was the best chocolate cake they had in a long time. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

  16. This was amazingly good! I made it for dessert on christmas and everyone loved it . Lol i am actually making another next week for a family get together

  17. I would like to make this for my wife for her BDAY!
    I don’t bake much but can i just purchase a boxed cake recipe (betty crocker etc) or does it have to be made from scratch?

    thanks in advance for any help on this!

  18. Greetings from Portugal. Made this desert yesterday for my birthday… loved it!
    Thank you for sharing this delicious cake…

  19. I just had a piece of chocolate cake/cheesecake from a local coffee house that looks soooo much like this. I thought I had gone to heaven and died while eating the coffe house cake/cheesecake and I can’t wait to try this!! Thank you!! :0)

  20. How did you get the cake and filling to be perfectly flush with each other?! Are you just that good? Should the cake be covered before refrigeration, or do you think it’ll be fine uncovered?

  21. Hi,
    I’m planning to make this cake but I was wondering how you get the Oreo cream cheese frosting so thick??
    Doesn’t the above layer just collapse into it?

    1. Hi Devina,it won’t collapse. No one so far has not complained to had a problem with frosting. several of them who try the recipe had a problem with ganache (because haven’t cooled it enough)but not with frosting. You can put the frosting in the refrigerator to be tightened before you put the top layer( just to be sure that it will not collapse).

  22. I made this today… the cake was really floppy and started to break and definitely collapse. I even put the filling in the freezer for a little bit so it would be more firm. It also looks like I only got maybe 2/3 of the filling that looks like in your picture.

  23. My family was thrilled when they saw this cake’s picture on my kitchen computer to be “created.” I must say this was the easiest, prettiest, tastiest cake I’ve made in a long time. It’s looks very difficult but is simple enough for a beginner to assemble. The first bite will be overwhelming. It is so moist w/ just enough chocolate. Words cannot express how amazing this cake truly is. You simply have to put it together and take that first bite. My family enjoyed it SO much, the 1st cake was gone w/in days and they begged me to make a 2nd. I have 2 teens at home. They were pleading for a 3rd but I put my foot down, to make something else, LOL. Enjoy this cake! She has outdone herself if that’s even possible w/ this site!!

  24. I absolutely love this cake! Thank you. I have made it twice now ( we will be enjoying it tommorow night again) and everyone said it was the best cake ever! This second time I made it I ended up citing the 1 cup of boiling water with a 1/4 cup of coffee to bring out the chocolate in the cake even more ! ( hopefully it does) . It is already decadent enough I was just testing to see what it would do. I’ll let you guys know later! Advice- just follow her directions and it will be great! I will definitely keep making this cake until everyone is sick of it ( I don’t think they will though) ! By the way if you suck at doing fillings I put the cream chs filling in a 9 inch doing form pan and put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes to an hour lined with parchment paper and place it in between the cakes . It sucks out a bit but I just take a large spoon and go around the cake smoothing it out and pushing the filling in ! It looks great! Wish I could submit a pic!

  25. Tried this today.. The chocolate layers were very moist. The cream cheese filling however was really soft and the recipe written did not make even half the amount in the picture. You’d need at least double, maybe triple the recipe for a nice cream cheese layer.

  26. Amazing recipe! However when I was making the filling, it was very moussy and started to run and overflow from the cake (which kind of made a mess). But i kept it the fridge overnight with some foil paper lined around it to keep it from running and put the second cake layer the next day. Even though it didn’t come out as a harder cheesecake (more of a fluffy and soft, whipped cream like filling) It was still delicious! Is there anything that we can do to perhaps make the filling harder or keep it from running?

    1. Hi Anchal, I’m sorry that you had problem with filling, I don’t know how it turned out that runny, but to avoid risk next time maybe you should disolve 1-2 teaspoon gelatine in cold water, melt on low heat and stir in the filling and you can use a ring from springform pan until the filling hardens in the fridge.

  27. This is one of the best basic chocolate cake recipes I have come across. It doesn’t have to be prepared with the oreo filling – although that is luscious. It is good with any type of frosting. Rich but not too sweet.

  28. Hi Vera, Thanks for sharing your recipe! I made it for Easter and it was delicious. I’m a chocoholic and was excited to try this out. As a novice baker, I made sure to read through all the instructions first, as well as all the feedback/comments and that was truly helpful. I followed the recipe exactly and didn’t have any trouble. I was nervous about adding all of the boiling water so I left some out and the cake came out perfect still. Because I’m not as experienced, my cake top wasn’t as fancy. After pouring the ganache over the cake, I simply put some chocolate shavings on top. My family was super impressed and they enjoyed every morsel 🙂 Looking forward to trying out some of your other recipes….

  29. I am making this cake today for my bunco group. When it’s girls’ night out, you MUST have chocolate! I read the entire recipe and all the comments before starting. My cheesecake layer is nice and thick like your picture, and I think the trick is to be the whip cream until firm peaks, as you mentioned above. That helps give it volume. In fact, I am wondering if the cheese cake layer is too thick! Ha ha. I put the bottom layer with the cheesecake filling on top in the fridge overnight, and this morning set the top cake layer on the cheesecake and pressed down gently to make the filling flush with the edges of the cake. Maybe those two tricks will help someone out there. Overall, great recipe! Can’t wait to share it with my girlfriends tonight.

  30. Oh my Gosh! I just to made this for a friends birthday and your directions were so spot on perfect it was so easy to make and I haven’t tried it yet ( except for a small taste of the cheesecake after I whipped it all up, which was absolute Heaven!) but I know it’s going to be fabulous! My house smells amazing right now with the chocolate and I can see how moist the cakes are! I’m so excited for my friend to try this! Thank you so very much for the amazing recipe!

  31. Sorry but I didn’t understand something… when you say 1-3/4 cups you mean ‘1 cup and 3/4’, don’t you? Or does it mean ‘1 cup or 3/4’??

  32. When you spoon the cream cheese filling in, do I keep the bottom layer of cake in the pan, so it forms the same shape or do I take the bottom cake out and just try to shape it myself?
    I will be making this for my husbands birthday. When I asked what he would like he said Oreos, and chocolate cake! And this just blew my mind (: no more endless nights trying to come up with the perfect recipe!

    1. Hi Mearret, you should take the cake out and then spread the cream cheese filling, but if you have the springform pan you can place the ring from springform pan around the cake, it will be much easier to shape the frosting.I hope your husband will like this cake.

  33. I’m making this cake like right now! I’m making it for my boyfriend birthday for tomorrow I’m so excited to see how it comes out ! challenging part was the fact that I had to make it all by hand I don’t have a mixing bowl . Anyways I’m loving how it’s coming out thank you for sharing this recipe !

  34. How did you get the whipped cream to come out so evenly? Did you use canned whipped cream or did you use a certain tool?

    1. I didn’t use canned whipped cream, it’s homemade heavy whipping cream as it said in the recipe,and shaped the edge with metal spatula.

  35. Is powdered sugar the same as icing sugar? Would this not be extremely sweet, can we substitute this with anything else? Condensed milk perhaps. Thank you

  36. Can you substitute cool whip for the cream? I am in a hurry and have no cream but I do have cool whip. If I can how much cool whip? Tried it twice and it is great! Need an answer soon if possible.

  37. Hi, this looks absolutely amazing, but I was wondering how you get the filling to stay so nice? Do you chill it? It looks like a lot of filling, and I’m just worried the cake might fall apart. How do you keep it stable? Thanks!

  38. I’ve made this cake twice both times I had alittle bit of trouble with the filling. I put the cheesecake filling on the first layer and when I added the second cake on top it pretty much squished the filling out and over the cake. So the second time I made it I decided not to put all the filling in the center instead save some for the top which was a little bit better. Now about the ganache, I poured a bunch on the cake and had to stop because it was way too much and was dripping off my cake stand. Had quite a bit left over and had to just throw it away. However, it did not come out pretty, everyone loved it and my mom always request me to make it.

  39. Hello! I have just made the cake for this recipe and I was wondering if I use heavy cream or whipping cream as we don’t have heavy whipping cream where I live..?

  40. hi Vera, its such a great cake, but would it be possible for you to provide me a 8 inch cake recipe for this one? thanks a lot.

  41. Just made this cake day before yesterday and i must say this is the best cake i have made so far… Requires efforts but the results are so worth it….

    Thanku so much for sharing the recipe…
    A must try!! 🙂

  42. The cake is delicious, the filling is no problem as long as you keep it in the fridge before serving, but the ganache… I couldn’t agree more with others who said it was tooo runny.. it ruins my cake appearance 🙁
    Better use other recipe for the ganach.
    Nevertheless, thx so much for sharing this recipe.

  43. Hello there!

    I would love to try making this cake however, I’m a little concerned as to how the cheesecake filling stands firm? I will await your reply

    1. Hi Tinai, it will stands just fine but make sure to beat heavy cream really firm before combine it with cream cheese.

  44. I made this for my fiances birthday and it turned out PERFECT! I saw some people had issues with the ganache being too runny. I used chocolate chips with heavy cream and you have to let it cool a little and be very intentional with how you drizzle it on the top, I used a spatula a little to help it move.

    Also, I saw some were having issues with the filling, what I noticed is that you really need to mix the heavy cream with an electric mixer for quite some time. I remember thinking to myself “this is never going to get any thicker” but I just kept going and it got really thick. then after it was finished I lined a pan with wax paper and put it in the freezer for almost an hour just to give it more strength. The people who said it makes half the amount pictured aren’t mixing the heavy cream enough because mine came out EXACTLY like the picture and I am no pro.

    Super yummy cake!!!

    1. oh , yes another thing is , when i cut the cake the cheesecake was really small nothing like yours ,
      but thanks anyway the chocolate cake was amazing !!!!

  45. hi vera
    would the cheese layer melt eventually ?
    because a friend of mine tried it but the cheese layer wasn’t firm ,
    so what do u suggest to do ?
    thank u

  46. Hello!
    I wonder how much boiling water I could need? Is it supposed to be runny or what consistency should the cake batter be?

    1. Hi Anna, remove the cake from the pan before spread the filling, but if you have the ring from springform pan with the same diametar you can place it around the cake and it will be much easier to make the filling smooth, jut take of the ring before spread the ganache.

  47. hi,
    do i pour the filling and the ganash to the cake while its in the pan . or only the filing then when it is set i pour the ganash ?

  48. Hi! I am so excited to make this for my husband’s birthday next week! How do you make the middle layer stiff enough to hold the top? It seems like a really thick second layer… is there a special technique? Thank you!!!

  49. I made this cake for my sister’s 50th birthday. What a huge hit! Mine didn’t look as gorgeous as yours, but it tasted yummy!!

  50. This cake look delicious, I think you can use one envelope of unflavored gelatin dissolved in a quarter cup of watter , it made your cheesecake firm like a mousse and dont loose de taste. I will use a springform pan and let it in fridge before decoration

  51. Hi Vera,

    This cake is stunning. I’ve practised making it twice now – my brother and his fiancé have asked me to make this for their wedding in June – in Sweden!

    The taste is so great (now I’ve worked out the UK conversions in measure and products!) but could do with your help on the presentation. My ganache seems to droop down but is a bit more gloopy than the image on here. Wondering how yours has dripped down so elegantly? Have you trimmed the edge of the cake/filling to make it straight down? It looks like that might be a possibility.

    Any help is great!
    Thanks,
    JM

    1. Thank you so much JM. I’m glad you like my cake. I haven’t trimmed the edge but you could try.It all about the thickness of the ganache, you have to get the right consistency and don’t pour all ganache at once, you should do it in layers using a spoon.

      1. Ah thank you – that’s useful to know. My only concern is, having asked a Swedish friend who lives in the UK for alternatives in Sweden – she says there is no such thing as double cream in Sweden! I have googled and am struggling to find anywhere there that sells it! Any advice? Can I turn single cream into double somehow with another ingredient to make it work, do you know?
        Thanks again,
        JM

  52. I’m making this cake for the second time today for orthodox Easter. The first time I made it, everyone loved it! It truly is an OMG cake! Thank you for the recipe.

  53. Best cake I’ve ever made and tasted! I made it for my friend’s birthday and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂
