Happy Wednesday, love bugs! Sofi here with this new recipe You know how a certain flavor combination can take you back to a specific memory? This Cookies and Cream Cake with Coffee Oreo Frosting is one of those.
I went to an incredibly rigorous boarding school that overworked us to the max. Because my high school academics were so demanding, the administration tried to keep us happy with things like a soft serve ice cream machine at lunch every Wednesday and Friday. And it worked. My friends and I would make this amazing concoction: vanilla soft serve stirred with crushed up Oreo cookies and drizzled with hot coffee. It was a poor man’s affogato and the best afternoon pick me up during a long week.
This Oreo cake took all those delicious flavors from my childhood and rearranged them into this centerpiece worthy cake.
