I must start sounding a bit repetitive, but guys, who can resist Oreo?
This week I have a special friend visiting from Italy. She loves baking as well, she’s been a finalist in the first season of the Great British bake off in Italy.
I can just tell that this week is being a new recipe every 10 minutes.
For this one I started from a very much loved recipe of a blueberry cheesecake and 3 packets of Oreo double stuff!
For the base
- 125 gr of Oreo biscuits (just the biscuits, separate the cream you’ll need it for the cake)
- 75 gr of salted butter
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
For the cake
- 250 gr of spreadable cheese (Philadelphia is the best)
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- The remaining cream from the Oreos
- 50 ml of double cream
For the topping
- 50 gr of double cream
- 50 gr of white chocolate
- 3 Oreos
Crush, not to fine, the Oreos biscuits deprived of cream in your blender. Mix them with the melted butter and add the tablespoon of sugar.
Press the mixture on the base of a 19 centimetre tin covered with baking paper. Put in the fridge while you deal with the next steps.
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
Beat the sugar and the eggs together until very creamy and puffy. Add the Oreos cream and the soft cheese and whip until you have no lumps. Add the double cream and keep whipping for at least 5 minutes.
Add this gorgeous cream in your tin and cook in the oven for 25 min at 180 and then for 40 min at 160. It’ll be ready when the cake won’t have the jello effect when you shake it.
Allow it to cool. It needs to be very cool to take it out the tin.
Lift it very carefully using the baking paper and place it on a serving plate. The cake doesn’t look so great as it taste, so it needs a bit of help.
In a very small pan place the double cream and the chocolate diced on a very slow fire. Turn it off immediately when it starts boil. Mix it until the chocolate melts completely and pour it on the surface of the cake.
In a plastic food bag place your Oreos for the decoration and crush them grossly using the rolling pin. Sprinkle them on your cake.
It’s not going to be the best looking cake, but I really can’t describe the taste! Amazing!!
