We’re calling it—this is the official party dessert of summer. But then we couldn’t leave well enough alone (when have we ever?), so we added a layer of whipped topping with crushed-up Golden Oreo™ cookies and finished with fresh strawberries and more Oreo cookies—because.MORE+LESS-
box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
box (6-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
container (8 oz) Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
cups chopped Golden Oreo cookies (about 16 cookies)
cup chopped strawberries
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan; cool in pan on rack 5 minutes.
With handle of wooden spoon (1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave jam uncovered on High 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until mixture is warm and spreadable. Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes.
In large bowl, beat pudding mix and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until starting to thicken. Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes. (Some filling should remain on top of cake.) Refrigerate 1 hour 30 minutes.
In medium bowl, stir together whipped topping and 1 cup of the chopped cookies. Spread evenly over cake. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Just before serving, top with chopped strawberries and remaining 1 cup chopped cookies. Cut into 5 rows by 3 rows.
- Chopping the cookies, as opposed to crushing or crumbling, gives the cookies a more attractive appearance when used as a garnish.
- Strawberry jam that is darker or more vibrant in color will make for a prettier appearance when the cake is cut.
