Which of course means sharing my baking experiments with you all- I hope you enjoy this little recipe for today, as always this recipe was inspired by other Oreo cupcake recipes online.

You Will Need :

for 12 cupcakes

– 6 oz softened salted butter          – 6 oz golden caster sugar          3 tbsp vanilla extract              3 eggs             4 oz flour, 2 oz cocoa powder         – 3 tbsp milk       –  chocolate dessert sauce     (+ 12 cupcake cases)

for the icing

5 oz softened salted butter          2 tbsp vanilla extract            – 1-2 tbsp milk if needed           – 10 oz icing sugar    –  2 packets of Oreos for icing and decoration, any flavour!

~

1) Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy- about 5 mins

2) Add eggs to the mixture one at a time until combined, add in vanilla and mix well again

3) Slowly add in flour/cocoa until fully combined- don’t over mix! Finally mix in the milk.

4) Bake at 170′ fan for 15-20 mins for cupcakes, allow the cakes to cool fully before icing!

For The Cupcake Filling:

This step is optional and flavour changeable, but I added a ‘melting chocolate’ center in each cupcake. Simply coring the cakes and adding a generous helping or chocolate sauce in each- You could use buttercream, solid chocolate or even crushed Oreos!

To Decorate :

1) Beat the softened butter until light and fluffy

2) Slowly add in the icing sugar-  add a little bit of milk at a time if needed or more icing sugar if to soft, mix in vanilla 

3) Crush up 3/4 to a full pack of Oreos , add into the buttercream and mix well. 

4) Pipe or spoon onto each cake, adding a final Oreo on top of each! I added some melted choc  as well for an extra touch- also a dusting of icing sugar!

SERVE & ENJOY!


..and let me tell you now, these are ones for the sweet-toothed hearted’!!

These were super fun to make and are great for a party or to take for a gift! You can add any flavour Oreo you want or even any type of chocolate biscuit.. My apologies for lack of pictures, these were made and eaten up very quickly!
