Loaf cakes are simple cakes to make that go perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee. Oreos are one of my favourite cookies so I decided to incorporate them into a loaf cake. Since this is a loaf cake it can take up to an hour until the middle of the cake is cooked. This cake will brown very quickly, so once the cake has baked for around 40 minutes cover the top with some tin foil.
200g Soften Butter/Baking Spread
200g Caster Sugar
200g Self-raising Flour
4 x Eggs
10 x Oreos (chopped into small pieces)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Icing Sugar
4 x Oreos
1. Pre heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. In a large mixing bowl add the soften butter/baking spread and caster sugar and mix until the mixture becomes paler in colour.
2. Next add slowly add the eggs one at time; this will prevent the mixture from curdling.
3. Add the self-raising flour, chopped Oreos, baking powder and vanilla extract into the large mixing bowl and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
4. Line a 21x8cm loaf tin with baking parchment. Make sure there is an over hang over the tin. This will help you remove the loaf cake from the tin after it has baked.
5. Add the cake mixture into the tin and smoothen the surface. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
6. Leave the cake to cool for 20 minutes on a wire rack. While the cake is cooling chopped up the rest of the Oreos into small pieces. Next make place the icing sugar in a bowl and slowly add water the icing sugar until thick icing forms.
7. Once the cake has cooled remove the cake from the tin and drizzle over the icing on top of the loaf cake. Then sprinkle the chopped Oreos over the top of the loaf cake and then the cake is ready to be served!
