Did you know that my Dirt Cake Recipe is one of the most popular posts on my blog-it’s been viewed over 2.5 million times over the past couple of years, and with good reason-it’s easy to make and it tastes amazing!

The only drawback of the original dirt cake recipe is that it really needs to chill a bit in the fridge before serving to taste best.  I have been experimenting lately and finally created a great, fast dirt cake recipe without cream cheese that you can have ready in just 10 minutes!! How awesome is that?

Shortcut Dirt Cake Ingredients

  • vanilla instant pudding mix
  • cold milk
  • whipped cream
  • OREO cookies

While this recipe omits the butter and cream cheese of the original the overall flavor is very similar (and it’s actually less caloric too!) and the faster serving time was definitely a bonus!

Step by step

To make this recipe fast, I recommend multitasking if you have a stand mixer (affiliate link) so the pudding can mix while you prep the other steps. If you don’t have a stand mixer (affiliate link) it may take a little longer than 10 minutes but still taste just as delicious!

  1. Combine the pudding mix and milk in a mixer and mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, use a blender (affiliate link) or food processor to crumb the OREOs, setting aside extra whole OREOs for garnish if you wish. You can also crumb the OREOs by placing them in a gallon bag and using a roller to break them up.
  3. Fold the whipped cream into the pudding until blended, then add 2/3 cup of the crushed OREOs to the mixture and stir to mix.
  4. Layer the pudding mixture and OREO crumbs in a serving dish and serve!

  1. Our family loves the original recipe but sometimes it’s too rich for my husband and I. Does eliminating the cream cheese make it less rich?
