Oreo Cupcakes

Hey everyone, so I had a box of chocolate Oreos in the cupboard for ages because wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to bake with them. Then I just decided on Oreo Cupcakes!! The recipe is super simple and the buttetcream is actually to die for, like it tastes so so good and isn’t too sweet. These cupcakes would definitely go down well for the festive seasonal parties.

Makes 12

Ingredients
200g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
250g caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
80g butter, at room temperature
240ml milk
½ tsp vanilla extract
6 Oreo biscuits

Buttercream
4 Oreo biscuits, smashed up
100g butter at room temperature
250g icing sugar

Method

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and place 12 cupcake cases into the cupcake tray holes.

2. In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt then mix well.

3. Next melt the butter and add to a jug with the milk, eggs and vanilla extract, whisk well and slowly pour into the flour mix stirring well until it turns to a smooth consistency.

4. Evenly distribute the cake mixture between the cupcake cases about 2/3’s full. Bake in the oven for 25 mins and leave to cool down fully.

5. Whilst the cupcakes are baking make the buttercream by mixing together all the ingredients and leave in a piping bag.

6. Once baked and completely cool pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes equally then twist the Oreo biscuits in half and place each half on top of a cupcake.

All done, now you can relax and enjoy the cupcakes!!

Oreo Stuffed Cookies

I found it on the BBC food website but halved the entire recipe as I didn’t have that many Oreo biscuits. Also the recipe included some chocolate chips which I didn’t add because for me it would have been too sweet. I really enjoyed baking these because I’ve never baked with a biscuit before but when biting into the cookie you get an Oreo surprise.

4. Use a tbsp to scoop out some of the dough and place on the bottom of an Oreo biscuit get another tbsp of dough and cover the top of the biscuit, gently squeeze together until the Oreo is completely enclosed within the dough.

5. Place onto the baking tray and repeat until all the biscuits are covered. Leave a good amount of space between each biscuit as they will expand. Bake in the oven for 10- 15 minutes and leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
