  1. A pack of Oreos (24 pcs), original or chocolate flavor recommended
  2. Half pint (236 ml) of full cream milk
  3. Butter
  4. A banana
  5. Any thickening agents


  1. Separate Oreos and the fillings into two different bowls. The Oreos will function as the batter and the fillings as the glaze.
  2. Crush/blend cookies and milk together until the batter is smooth. Transfer it to a butter-greased cake pan.
  3. Cook in a microwave for 7 minutes or until it sets. You can check by poking it with a toothpick and if it comes out clean, then it's ready. 
  4. While you’re waiting for the cake to cool down, blend the bananas and put them alongside the oreo fillings.
  5. Cook until the filling melts and integrates with the blended bananas. Add a small amount of thickening agents to make the glaze much gooier. Let it cool.
  6. Serve the cake and glaze them. Add crumbled Oreos or sliced bananas for toppings.


You may opt to use a steamer for a lighter consistency, or bake them for a crispier texture and dense consistency.
