2 cups sugar (1 white, 1 dark brown)
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa
1 TBSP vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 TBSP baking soda
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup of yogurt/sour cream if you can't get buttermilk)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup coarsely crushed Oreo cookies
Vanilla frosting

Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla, salt, and cocoa. Mix baking soda in buttermilk(or substitute) until it starts to fizz. Pour buttermilk (or substitute) into batter. Stop mixer and add flour - sift it first. Mix until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add boiling water and mix. In a bag, coarsely crush Oreo cookies until you have enough for 1 cup--take out 3 TBSP of crushed Oreo cookies to use later in the frosting. Stir the rest of the 1 cup crushed Oreo cookies into the cake batter. Pour batter into long cake pan 13 by 9 by 2. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Test if it's done using a toothpick. If toothpick comes out clean, it's done. If it doesn't come out clean, leave in a few more minutes and retest.

Frosting: 225g of icing sugar, 1/2 cup butter; 2 tsp. vanilla; 1.5 TBSP milk. Feed in mixer. The longer you beat it the creamier it gets. When finished making frosting, stir in the 3 TBSP of crushed Oreos that you had set aside. Frost cake when it is cool. You can add more crushed Oreos to the top for decoration if you wish.
