Oreo Cupcakes
Wednesday, 5 December 2012

If you love chocolate and Oreos, you will love these cupcakes! I brought these into work and it went down a treat! Plus, there's a delightful surprise inside these cakes.

This recipe has been adapted from Bakerella. It is enough to make 12 cupcakes.

For the cupcakes:
  • 187g plain flour, sifted
  • 59g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 118ml oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 180ml milk
  • 12 oreos
For the oreo buttercream:
  • 115g butter, softened
  • 240g icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-6 tbsp milk
  • 2-3 oreos, crushed into crumbs
  • 12 oreos, to decorate
  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4. Line a 12 x 12 muffin tin with paper cases. Place one oreo cookie in each cup.
  2. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt with a whisk. Add in the eggs, oil, vanilla and milk one at a time until thoroughly combined.
  3. Transfer the batter into the cases until 2/3 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  4. To make the buttercream, beat butter until smooth. Sift in the icing sugar in 3 additions, then the vanilla extract. Add a tbsp of milk at a time until the right consistency is reached. Crush 2 or 3 oreo cookies into fine crumbs and mix into the buttercream.
  5. Pipe the frosting on the cupcakes and top with another oreo. Enjoy!

Who remembers the TV advert which goes "You twist it, you lick it and you dunk it!" I remember this TV advert for Oreos many years ago. For me, it is one of my childhood biscuits and I always associate it with milk and bedtime. I've been planning to make these for a long time and I'm so glad when I finally did. Although, if you don't have much of a sweet tooth, just use less amount of sugar and it will be fine!
