At the risk of sounding 5 years old… It’s my birthday week!
My birthday is this Friday, and I thought what better way to celebrate than to share some fun “Birthday” recipes all week…
Let the party begin!!
The other day I was strolling through the grocery store when I stumbled across something completely awesome. A bright pink package of Birthday Cake Oreos. Obviously, I couldn’t resist picking them up. Pink is my absolute favorite color, and… well, Birthday Cake Oreos… duh.
The Oreos are fantastic on their own, but I they taste like a party inside of these rich and chewy Birthday Cake Blondies.
The Oreos already come with sprinkles in the cake batter filling, but I needed more sprinkles. Everyone should have more sprinkles in their life. Expect to see sprinkles for the rest of the week.
Since I’m away from friends and family this year for my birthday, I thought it would be fun to celebrate with all of you guys, my virtual friends! 🙂 I love a good party, and these Oreo Birthday Cake Blondies would make a great addition to any birthday party. But of course, they can be consumed any day of the year if you’re ready for fun and a delicious treat.
What’s your favorite birthday treat?
Oreo Birthday Cake Blondies
- 8 tbsp butter, room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup Self Rising flour, or 1 cup all purpose flour + 1/4 tsp baking powder + pinch of salt, sifted together
- 8 Oreos, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line an 8x8" baking pan with parchment paper or tinfoil, set aside.
- In your mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat until incorporated. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Gently fold in the Oreos and the sprinkles, then transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the center is set. Remove from oven and let cool. Use the parchment paper to pull the blondies out of the pan, for easy cutting.
I baked these this afternoon and wanted you to know they are seriously one of the best blondies I’ve ever had!

Oreos makes everything taste better. I could try and do something similar for my nieces this weekend. They would appreciate this.

Asiya @ Chocolate and Chillies
Oreos are my eldest son’s favorite cookie…he would go nuts for these!!! Looks awesome!
Thanks Asiya! Your son has great taste! 😉
My birthday is also this friday! We don’t have birthdaycake oreos where i live. I suppose i could use regular ones? Hope you have a good birthday!
We’re twins!! You could totally use regular Oreos, and to give it that “cake batter” taste, sub 1/4 cup of the flour with some cake mix. Thanks for the warm wishes, and hope you have a fantastic birthday as well! 🙂
