Oreo Cupcakes

Oreo Cupcakes
These are a firm favorite whenever I am asked to make cupcakes for people.

There is something special about a rich, moist, vanilla cupcake, speckled with Oreos, topped with a vanilla bean frosting and drizzled in Oreo crumbs. But what that something is… I just don’t know. No, wait I do… They taste amazing!

Oh so Oreo Cupcakes:

  • 125g plain flour
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125ml full fat milk
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 125g softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons Oreo crumbs
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Line a 12 cake, cupcake pan with cases and pop a full Oreo into the bottom of each.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until light and pale.
  4. Beat in your eggs one at a time, until the yolk has disappeared.
  5. Sift the flours and baking powder together.
  6. Add the vanilla to the milk.
  7. Add the half  the dry ingredients and half the wet and mix. Repeat until you have all the ingredients together.
  8. Add your Oreo crumbs and fold into the mixture.
  9. Fill your cases until about 2/3 full and pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden on top and your cake test comes out clean.

Oreo Frosting:

I am partial to making this two ways. You can either leave it a vanilla bean buttercream and sprinkle Oreo crumbs on top. Or you came mix the Oreo crumbs into the buttercream. If you do the latter, the buttercream will turn a greyish colour, just the dust mixing with the buttercream.

  • 227g unsalted soft butter
  • 400g sifted icing sugar
  • 2-6 tablespoons of milk. I usually add 2 to start and then add more to make the buttercream fluffier. It will all depend on how soft your butter was at the start.
  1. Start by beating your butter until very soft and pale.
  2. Gradually add the icing sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk. Continue to a cup of icing sugar at a time until all mixed or you have the consistency you like.
  3. Fold in your crumbs and pipe.
  4. Or pipe and then sprinkle on the crumbs!

And there you have it. “Death by Oreo”. These never last long in my house when I make them, I have even had Dolly try persuade me “theyare a breakfast really… if you think about it?” I am still thinking on that one… Serve with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
