11 Ingredient Oreo Cake (Vegan, Dairy & Gluten-Free)


Before I went vegan I never like oreo cookies too much but I did love something called oreo dirt cake. Now this vegan oreo cake recipe isn’t the same as my beloved dirt cake was, but it is very delicious! It’s similar a giant oreo cookie with a cake for the cookie.


My mother always said simple is best and that certainly applies to this vegan dessert recipe. Just eleven ingredients in total to make this sinfully sweet masterpiece! In fact you make make the entire thing and be eating it in less than 30 minutes. It’s also particularly filling so I find that smaller portions really do go a long way.

There are a lot of things to like about this vegan oreo cake recipe besides the taste too. Of course it’s vegan, so it’s egg-free and dairy-free. It also happens to be grain-free and gluten-free if those are concerns of yours. Of course what’s really important is how it taste and it gets high marks in that department! It’s equally appealing to adult dessert lovers as well as kids.
