Pumpkin meet Oreo, Oreo meet pumpkin…


Been very uninspired in the creativity department as of late so I asked Facebook readers what they thought I should make. Someone asked for a Pumpkin Coffee Cake but with Oreos. Umm, okay. She was very excited to be selected. I’m sure it was a disappointment that there was not prize or anything.

Hopefully this is what she was looking for. I was going to glaze it but really couldn’t figure out what to glaze it with. Plus I wanted it to be more like a portable snack cake, which it is.

No time for a real post sorry. I hope to get a lot of baking down this weekend and will attempt to make it up to you.

Pumpkin Oreo Coffee Cake

For Oreo batter:

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
20 crushed Oreo cookies
1 cup sour cream
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt

For pumpkin batter:
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 325F.

Grease or spray the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

Using a stand mixer cream together butter and sugar, and beat on medium high for 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time. Scrap down mixer after each addition.

Add vanilla and ½ the sour cream. Beat for one minute.

Add the flour, baking soda, powder, pinch of salt, and mix on low speed until incorporated.

Add remaining sour cream.

Pour 1/2 of the mixture in the pan.

Prepare the pumpkin exactly like the pumpkin pie recipe on the can of pumpkin except you only use 1/2 cup of evaporated milk.

Pour all of the pumpkin mixture over the batter in the pan.

Pour the remaining half of batter over the pumpkin (this step is a little difficult-it’s ok that the pumpkin mixes in a little with the batter) Make the topping, put over batter.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 50-60 minutes.

Let cool completely.

  11. Are you even KIDDING me right now? What is the matter with you? Gah. I have met my weekend destiny. Do you think they’ll notice at the church bakesale if I buy my own contribution? More importantly, do you think the HUBS will notice if I bring home the same dessert I take to said bakesale???

  12. When do you put the Oreo’s in? I didn’t see it in the recipe, but I could just be missing it.

  13. Fold in right before pouring into pan.
