  • 9×13 inch cake pan,
  • parchment paper,
  • food processor or blender,
  • spatula

Ingredients For Strawberry Oreo Crunch Pound Cake Recipe:

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup white flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries (or other jam or preserves)

For the crunch:

  • 12 Oreo cookies
  • 1 cup salted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

Preparation For Strawberry Oreo Crunch Pound Cake Recipe:

For Cake:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease the pan with vegetable oil.

2. In a food processor or blender, grind the strawberries until smooth and without lumps.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the strawberries with oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract for 3 minutes on medium speed until combined well enough to mix by hand. The batter should be thin and light yellow – not thick or yellow-green (1). Set aside

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Whisk until well combined, and there are no lumps.

5. Slowly pour the dry ingredients and flour mixture, followed by the strawberry batter (2). Mix with a spatula until just combined.

6. Pour batter into pan and bake for 55 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (3). Test with a toothpick – it should come out clean. Allow cake to cool completely in pan before transferring to cooling rack.

For the crunch:

1. Beat together butter and sugar on medium speed until light and creamy, about 4 minutes.

2. Crush Oreo cookies in a food processor or blender until crumbly. Spread the crushed Oreo crumbs into the bottom of the pan.

3. When the cake is thoroughly cooled, spread a thin layer of jam or preserves on top of the cake. It will make the cake extra moist and sweet.

4. Place approximately half Oreo cookie crumbs over the jam or preserves.

5. Carefully spread whipped cream or frosting evenly over Oreo cookie crumbs. Layer with remaining Oreo crumbs and then the cake. Serve and enjoy!

Can I Use Frozen Strawberries?

I have used frozen strawberries, which worked well in this recipe. Make sure you thaw them out before using them. You can also add a few extra strawberries to this cake if you wish to.

Do I Need To Add Jello-O?

This strawberry oreo crunch-pound cake recipe is a sheet cake. I have used strawberry jam or preserves in the filling, but you can also add Jello-O preceding it with more strawberry puree to thicken it up if you like.

Adding jam or preserves is much easier and allows you to control how sweet the filling is.

How To Serve The Cake

The pound cake is so moist that it doesn’t need any frosting (or if you want, you can skip the frosting). I recommend serving it with whipped cream. Whipping the cream by hand is more time-consuming,

but using the electric mixer makes it smooth. You can go a step further and add caramel sauce to it or drizzle some chocolate sauce on top.


I hope you enjoy this strawberry oreo crunch-pound cake recipe. This is a fun and delicious dessert that’s both healthy and impressive.

It’s great for a birthday party or if you want something tasty and straightforward to eat on the weekend.
