Chocolate Covered Oreo Cake – Gluten-free

My wonderful mother-in-law, Mary, made this amazing cake for the kids last weekend.  I just had to sneak some when the leftovers came home.  WOW!  This cake was awesome!  Thanks, Mary!


The original recipe came from Kraft Foods, but Mary modified it to be gluten-free.  Here are her instructions & substitutions.


1 pkg. devil’s food chocolate cake mix (Betty Crocker’s Gluten-free Devil’s Food Cake)

4 squares  BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

1 pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

12 OREO Cookies, coarsely crushed (Use KinniTOOS, or omit)

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

PREPARE cake batter and bake in 2 (8-inch) round pans as directed on package. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Invert cakes onto wire racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 min.

MEANWHILE, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in COOL WHIP and crushed cookies. Stack cake layers on plate, spreading cream cheese mixture between layers. Spread top with chocolate glaze; let stand until firm. Keep refrigerated.

The kids devoured this!  I am glad I got my share before they finished it off!  LOL!

I’ll leave you with one more picture…..drool!

  3. That looks delicious…so the Betty Crocker’s Devil’s Food Cake is the gluten free one I am assuming 🙂

  4. I made this Kraft GLUTEN recipe before having to become Gluten-free. I frequently think, how can i recreate that recipe…THANK YOU for posting, much easier for me now!!

  5. This recipe looks fabulous! And the photos really add to it – my mouth is watering. I’ll have to give this a try in the near future. Thanks for posting it!

  6. Oh my goodness, that looks great! Wonder I I could turn that into a mini treat and send to Sam’s class? Maybe as a cupcake!


  7. Wow! What a blog. You have a real knack for making a blog readable and easy on the eyes. I can’t wait to try out some of the recipes you have here (after a trip to the market to get the ingredients). Cooking is one of my favorite things. I love making meals for the family. I don’t have time to read everything on this site right now, I found your site while I was looking for something else on Bing, but I’ve bookmarked your home page and will check back soon to see the latest recipes. Visit my site if you’d like to read more. Keep up the great work, and bon appetit!

  8. Wow! This looks sooo good. I just recently had to start the gluten free diet due to celiac disease. I am still learning about gluten free cooking. I am definitely missing oreos! This time of the year, they usually have a holiday version (a white chocolate covered oreo cookie). Those are mine and my husband’s favorite…. I am wondering if I will be able to recreate that flavor within this cake…. Maybe using a white chocolate frosting for the top and sides…. I will have to think about it. If I am successful, I will let you know. Thanks for the awesome idea!

  9. I saw this and HAD to have it as my birthday cake. We used Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix and Kinni-toos. It was SO GOOD! Thank you for posting!

  10. Chocolate should be your middle name. Thank you for sharing this on Friday Foodie Fix.

  11. […] unless you pour less into 2 small, 8-inch pans. This still makes a nice cake. You can see a recipe here for Chocolate Oreo Cake using this mix. You can find Betty Crocker’s gluten-free mixes in […]
