Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

There are so many recipes out there for cakes with Oreos in them and I’m going to throw another one into the mix.

Get over it…

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes!!!

  • 225g Unsalted Butter
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 225g Self-raising Flour
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1tsp Vanilla
  • Pack of Oreos

for icing

  • 375g Icing Sugar
  • 225g Unsalted Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pack of Oreos

Get your oven preheated to 175°C. Whack some cases into muffin tins, you might get 18 cakes but the way I fill I only ever get around 15.

Sod it, beat all the cake ingredients together except the Oreos, once pale, crush a packet of Oreos in and give a good mix. Fill the cake cases, stick in the oven for 20 minutes. Take out and cool on a wire rack.

When you want to ice them, beat the hell out of the icing sugar, butter and salt. Crush another packet of Oreos into the icing and mix up. Dollop big spoons of icing onto each cake and then ram them in your face hole.

That’s it, there’s nothing to them really. I usually use half and half original Oreos and Chocolate ones but the shop didn’t have any. But there’s nothing stopping you adding any cream filled biscuit like Bourbons or Custard creams. Experiment a bit, sub in 50g cocoa or even custard powder for 50g of the flour. You could even go mental and forget the cream part and stick something like Jammie Dodgers or Viscounts in there.
