Equipment requires:

Oven/Kadhai/Cooker

Ingredients:

1. 30-40 Oreo biscuits

2. Nutella spread

3. 3 Tbsp powdered sugar

4. 2 tsp baking powder

5. One tsp baking soda

6. 200-300 ml of raw milk

7. 2 tsp ghee (clarified butter) to grease the cake pan

8. Melted dark chocolate or Cadbury Dairymilk (for topping/decoration)

9. 50 Gms of choco chips (for decoration)

10. One or 2 Cadbury Gems packets (for decoration)

11. 6-8 Kit-Kat wafers (for decoration)

12. Butter paper over which we bake the cake

Ingredients mentioned for decoration are absolutely optional and it is up to you to add whatever you would like to.

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 300 F and adjust the oven rack to center.

2. To blend the Oreo biscuits, crush them (about 20-25 of them) and grind them in a mixer to a fine powder.

3. Take the powdered biscuits in a medium-sized bowl. Add powdered sugar and mix it well. You can skip adding sugar if you don’t want extra sweetness apart from the biscuits.

4. Also add baking powder and baking soda to the mixture and blend it well.

5. Start adding raw milk to the mixture in little quantities so that you can get a thick and flowing liquid consistency. The cake batter is ready now.

6. Grease the cake tin/plate with ghee and place the butter paper over it. You can grease the butter paper as well with a little ghee.

Pro-tip – Just dust maida (all-purpose flour) at the bottom of the cake tin before pouring the batter. If you don’t have a butter paper. Dust well so that the cake comes out easily.)

7. Pour the prepared cake batter into the tin evenly. Tap the tin to release any air bubbles within the batter.

8. Place the tin in the oven and bake the cake for about 25-30 minutes. An alternate if you don’t have an oven at your disposal, is a kadhai or a cooker. The steps are as follows:

9. Take about 200gms of salt in a kadhai/cooker and place a small rack or a stand over it.

10. Heat the contents covered in a medium flame for about 10-15 minutes. 

11. Remove the lid and place the cake tin with the batter on the stand.

12. Close it with the lid and heat it for about 25-30 minutes.

13. We are basically creating the same heat as in the oven using a kadhai/cooker to bake the cake.

14. Remove the baked cake and insert a toothpick to check if it comes out clean. If it does, your oreo cake is ready. If not, you can re-heat it for another 5 to 10 minutes and remove the cake.

15. Cool it down completely, tilt the tin upside down onto another plate and remove the cake. Remove the butter paper from the top of the cake.

The yummy Nutella Oreo cake is ready. Spread a generous layer of nutella over the cake, using a spatula. That becomes the topping. Also, pour the melted chocolate in parts over the spread to make it tastier and aesthetically appealing.

Sprinkle choco chips over the nutella spread and make it more decorative and yummy. You could also use gems and kit-kat wafers for garnishing and place them on the cake to make it more inviting. 

Use the remaining Oreo biscuits also to decorate the cake. Place them on the periphery of the cake and one or 2 biscuits inserted over the topping as well.
