If you love Cookies and Cream Blast from Dairy Queen, you are going to go nuts over this Oreo Buttermilk Pound Cake. It tastes just like the Blast, maybe even better. Serve it warm with homemade whipped cream… ooh la la. Superb! 

For my Oreo Buttermilk Pound Cake, I started with a basic Buttermilk Pound Cake recipe. This is a Southern classic and favorite.

Oreo Buttermilk Pound Cake Recipe Tips

I used solid vegetable shortening, Crisco brand, in this recipe instead of butter because I didn’t want the butter to conflict with the Oreo flavor. The texture was soft and moist and the cake tasted wonderful with the shortening. However, you can use butter or half shortening and half butter, but I was happy with only shortening in the pound cake.

Additionally, I used buttermilk as my liquid taking it out of the refrigerator when I took the eggs out to come to room temperature. It’s important for everything to be at room temperature when making a pound cake.

In the directions, you’ll see to add the baking soda to the buttermilk. It just needs to be added a couple of minutes before you add it to the batter. Typically, I add the soda to the buttermilk, then sift the flour and salt together. That’s all the time it needs.

Additionally, I did not pulverize my cookies into small bits. I broke each cookie into 5 or 6 pieces because I wanted to see the cookies and taste a ‘chunk’ as I was eating.

Now, it appears from my photos that I  layered the cookies in the middle of the batter. I did not. I actually mixed them evenly (or so I thought) into the batter. They should have been spread more evenly through the cake. Regardless, distribute them as evenly as possible into the batter.
