For the Brownie Layer:
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Oreo Layer:
- 1 package Oreo cookies (about 24 cookies)
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
For the Ganache:
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan with cooking spray and set it aside.
- To make the brownie layer, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
- Pour the brownie batter into the prepared springform pan and smooth it out with a spatula.
- To make the Oreo layer, place the Oreo cookies into a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin or a food processor until they’re coarsely chopped.
- Mix the crushed Oreos with melted butter until well combined.
- Layer the Oreo mixture over the brownie batter and spread it out evenly.
- Bake the cake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan.
- To make the ganache, heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until it begins to simmer.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the chocolate chips. Let the mixture sit for a minute or two to allow the chocolate to melt.
- Whisk the chocolate and cream mixture until smooth and well combined.
- Pour the ganache over the top of the cooled cake, spreading it out evenly.
- Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour to allow the ganache to set.
- Once the ganache has set, remove the cake from the pan, slice, and serve.
