No-Bake 5 Ingredients Chocolate Cake:

  • 28 Oreos
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened

Chocolate Ganache (optional):

  • 8 ounces chocolate dark, semi-sweet, or milk - chopped
  • 8 ounces heavy cream


  • Remove the cream part from the Oreos, put it in a bowl, and add the hard cookie parts to a Ziploc bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the cookies into fine crumbs. You can also use a food processor.
  • Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl, add baking powder, a bit of salt, cocoa powder, and espresso powder, mix well. Add the milk and stir until fully combined.
  • Whisk in the cream from the Oreos into the milk mixture. If you still see lumps, you can use a blender to make the cake batter smooth.
  • Grease a small saucepan with butter or coconut oil.
  • Transfer the chocolate cake batter to it, cover with a lid, and cook on low heat on the stove for 45-55 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of the cake should come out clean or with just a few moist crumbs but no raw batter on it.
  • Remove the cake from heat, uncover, and let it cool for 20 minutes before inverting it on a plate. Let the cake fully cool.

Chocolate Ganache (optional):

  • Add chopped chocolate to a medium bowl.
  • Heat the cream in the microwave for 1 minute, or until hot.
  • Pour the hot cream on top of the chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, after that stir until fully melted and smooth.
  • Pour the ganache on top of the cooled cake.
  • Garnish with berries and refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving.
