3 Ingredient Oreo Cake | Easy Vegan Recipe

If you follow food videos on TikTok then chances are that you have come across this viral recipe by fitwaffle. As someone who loves oreos and chocolate cake in all forms, I could not resist testing out this ridiculously simple three-ingredient oreo cake. No oven needed. Ready in under 3 minutes. It seemed too good to be true. 

After trying it out for myself, I am absolutely sold. For those moments when a chocolate cake craving hit and you don't have the energy to make a whole vegan chocolate from scratch, this hits the spot.

I happened to have some dark chocolate chips at home so I melted some in the microwave and poured over the top of my cakes. Then I added some crushed oreos over the top to garnish because why not?!

The individual ramekin cakes are perfect for a quick snack but I reckon they can also make for an elegant dinner party dessert. Simply dress them up with fancy garnishes and you're good to go. Chocolate ganache, fresh berries, toasted coconut, salted caramel...the options are endless. 

To make a layer of cake, I recommend doubling the recipe and using a microwave-safe 10cm cake tin. 

A few days after trying this recipe, I tried to make a more substantial round of cake and decided to bake it in the oven instead of microwave. I was left with a super fudgy and bouncy cake cake rather than light and fluffy. It was still tasty but not quite as successful as the microwave cakes. 

Let me know if you give this recipe a try and tag me on Instagram. I'm also starting to post a bit more on TikTok, so do drop in and check out my videos. 


- 1 pack oreos (approx. 14 biscuits)

- 125ml vegan milk (such as soya milk, oat milk or coconut milk)

- 1/2 tsp baking powder


Place the biscuits in a clear bag and use a rolling pin (or bottle) to crush the biscuits to fine crumbs. 

Transfer the crumbs to a bowl and add the vegan milk and baking powder. Stir well to form a loose cake batter. 

Pour the batter into small ramekins that have been lightly oiled and the bottoms lined with baking paper.

Microwave each ramekin for 2 minutes. Remove the cake from the ramekin and serve warm with a drizzle of melted chocolate (optional) or leave to cool.
