Easy OREO Bundt Cake

This is the 1st OREO recipe on my blog!! It's about time, huh? I have made homemade Oreos from scratch, but this is my first recipe using store-bought OREOS!!  Do you think store-bought OREOS are one of the most loved cookies EVER?  

Last night, around midnight, I decided I wanted to make an OREO cake.  I had picked up a white cake mix and a thing of vanilla store bought frosting.  The cake mix was 88 cents and the frosting was 93 cents, then I had a $1 off coupon!!  What a deal!   I used my favorite cake mix recipe that I have also used for a coconut version, a strawberry version and a banana version!  Sometimes it is just easier to jazz up a cake mix than to make a cake from scratch.   This recipe always produces a very very moist cake and a delicious cake!!

The only problem was that the OREO pudding was not as strong as puddings usually are.  So, I ended up adding some crushed OREOS to the batter too.  Next time, I will add even more OREOS to the batter, because I think it could have used just a little more OREO flavor! With a few more OREOS and maybe an OREO frosting, I think this cake would have been perfect!!
Easy OREO Bundt Cake
adapted from: Ashlee P. 

1 white cake mix
1 (4.2 oz.) box instant OREO pudding  
3/4 c. water
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. sour cream or non-fat plain yogurt
4 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
10-12 crushed OREOS + more for garnish
vanilla frosting, store-bought or homemade

In a large bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, sour cream or yogurt, eggs and vanilla.  Beat on medium speed until completely combined.  Scrape down bowl and beat for two minutes.  Stir in crushed OREOS.  Pour into a well-greased bundt pan and smooth out the top with a rubber spatula.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan 15 minutes, then invert to a cooling rack.  Cool completely.  Frost and sprinkle with crushed OREOS.  

Jenn's Notes:  I only used 6 crushed OREOS in the cake, but I think it would be perfect with 10 or 12.  I put the OREOS in a zip-top back and smashed with a rolling pin.  I always use non-fat plain yogurt with AMAZING results.  I used store-bought vanilla frosting, but I think an OREO frosting would be delicious!  Next time I will try that.
