Coca-Cola Zero and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake Recipe

I’m excited to partner with Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser for this Coca-Cola Zero™ and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake post. All opinions are mine alone. #GreatTasteTourney #CollectiveBias


It’s the middle of March, and besides crazy weather patterns here in Colorado (70 degrees one day, snow and ice the next), we also know it’s the start of The Big Tournament, the ultimate in basketball playoffs.  I don’t know about you, but I feel like everyone around me is talking about their brackets – or busted brackets at this point.  The chatter around my office is at an all-time high about whose bracket is going to win the big office pool.  Each meeting starts with a good 5 minutes of trash talking.  It’s a fun way to keep the energies up, when the weather just won’t cooperate.

This Coke Zero and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake is the perfect mid-day office snack to take in and share with coworkers, whether they are celebrating their latest victories, or just want to wallow in their losses.

It’s also a perfect party treat to take with you if you happen to be visiting friends for the latest games.  This quick, easy recipe is perfect for game day.  Share this recipe with a crowd!  It’s simple to make, and lets you get back to the game!



Full recipe details are below, but here are the post-game highlights of how this game, I mean cake, went.

1.Gather all your teammates together for a pre-game huddle.  You want to make sure everyone knows it’s going to be a great game (I mean, cake… yes… cake)



2. Make sure each player knows their position, and warms up properly.  That means, warm up the oven, grease the bundt pan, and make sure the OREO cookies are properly crumbled.

3.  Get the team on the court, or in this case, into the mixing bowl so they can work together to score big!


4. In this cake, your star players, Coca-Cola Zero and OREO still have to work together with the other ingredients.  Make sure they mix well with the team.


5.  Feature OREO in a game-changing play. What was supposed to be a standard play, of pouring the cake batter into the pan, has now become a Dribble-Drive offense, with a potential 3-point shot.  OREO cookie crumbles line the bottom of the pan, and OREO pieces sneak down the middle before all players meet at the basket.


5.  Fall back for halftime, while the players hang-out in the locker room (the oven).  Let them rest a little bit longer on the bench (the counter), before you let them back on the court.

6.  Right before you pull them off the bench, bring them in for a huddle to discuss this next play.  Its Coke Zero’s shining moment to make the game-winning basket.



7.  Go in for the final, full-court press, man-on-man coverage for the last few seconds of the game (I mean cake… right.)



WHEW!  That was a great game.  Well played everyone!

So, how is the cake, really?  Well – let’s just say this:  the OREO cookie crumbles that are now at the top add a nice little crunch when you bite in.  The hidden OREO cookie pieces inside perfectly blend with the cake, but add a bit of surprise when you take the second bite.  And the Coca-Cola Zero Chocolate Glaze is just the right amount of sweetness, to pull it all together.  This cake is ultra-moist and in one bite, both my daughter and I said, “Oh-WOW!”


I have a feeling this will soon become YOUR go-to basketball playoff, or anytime party, dessert.  The best part, is its perfectly shareable for office parties, or just to help someone get over getting knocked out of their fantasy pool.

Coca-Cola and OREO Chocolate Crumble Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a bundt cake pan (I use Baker's Joy, but PAM is also good).
  2. In a food processor, blend the 1 1/2 sleeves of OREO cookies until fully crumbled.
  3. In a gallon-sized baggie, place the 8 additional OREO cookies and seal. Hit lightly with either a meat mallet or rolling pin, until large chunks of cookies are left. Don't hit too long, you want pieces of OREO, not cookie dust.
  4. In a large bowl or in your electric mixer's bowl, stir the cake mix and pudding mix together.
  5. Pour in eggs and oil.
  6. Add Coke Zero.
  7. Mix on lowest setting for 30 seconds until combined and then on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  8. In your greased bundt pan, sprinkle the cookie dust on the bottom of the pan until a light layer is at its base.
  9. Pour half of the cake batter in to the pan, spreading out evenly.
  10. Place the larger OREO cookie pieces into the cake batter, towards the middle and avoiding the edges of the pan.
  11. Pour the remainder of the cake batter into the pan, covering the OREO cookie pieces completely. Spread the batter evenly.
  12. Bake at 325 for 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.
  13. Allow the cake to cool for 20-30 minutes before removing from the pan. About 5 minutes before cooling, make the glaze.
Coca-Cola Zero Chocolate Glaze
  1. Melt butter, Coca-Cola Zero, and cocoa in a pan on medium heat, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.
  2. Take the pan off the heat, and whisk in powdered sugar.
  3. Once fully blended, pour glaze over slightly warm cake. Decorate with extra OREO crumbles or other sprinkles.

    This looks so good and the fact you used come zero even better

    • I love Coke Zero (it’s always on hand), but I’m sure this recipe would work well with Coca-Cola or Diet Coke as well.
