Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan forced). Lightly grease and line a 20x 30cm baking pan with baking paper allowing extra to overhang the sides. Prepare cake as directed with eggs, water and oil. Pour into the pan.

Mix as directed and the pour into the pan.

Bake for 25-30 min or until cooked when tested with skewer. Allow to cool in the pan slightly then invert onto a cooling rack lined with baking paper.

Turning onto baking paper will make cleaning up easier.

Combine chopped dark chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir over a low heat until melted and ganache is smooth and glossy. Transfer ganache to a serving jug. Stand for 15 min or until slightly thickened.

Stir constantly until ingredients are combined.

Roughly chop the Oreo biscuits using a sharp knife. If the kids are helping out, you can pop them into a snap lock bag and crush with a rolling pin.

Roughly chop the biscuits.

Drizzle ganache over the top of the cake – allowing a little to run down the sides of the cake as well. 

Drizzle with ganache. YUM!

Sprinkle top with chopped Oreo biscuits. Chill for a few minutes if needed to firm up. Cut into random pieces to serve.

Add as many Oreo’s as you like.
