CUPCAKES | Chocolate Oreo

 Hey Everyone! 

This is the first cupcake recipe I'm going to share on my blog with you guys! And an absolute favourite of mine and friends in my friendship group, whenever i offer to make cupcakes i always get begged to make these ones!

The below recipe makes between 16 - 18 cupcakes

Sponge Ingredient's
200g Plain Flour
40g Cocoa Powder
240g Caster Sugar
16 - 18 Whole Oero's
3tsp Baking Powder 
2tsp Vanilla Extract 
2 Eggs 
80g Unsalted Butter 
200ml Skimmed Milk 

Sponge Method 
  1.  Preheat your oven to 180c / 160c (if using fan) and pick some cupcake cases. I normally go for the brand Cuplitt as i find these to be the sturdiest brand and best size. 
  2. Place one whole oero in the bottom of each cupcake case 
  3. In two separate bowls, firstly sift in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder - whisk this dry mixture together combining all ingredient's. 
  4. In the second bowl beat your softened butter and sugar together until the mixture is combined, then add your vanilla extract and the eggs 1 at a time and whisking them slowly. 
  5. Combine and mix the two mixtures together with the milk and beat until you have a smooth mixture 
  6. Divide the mixture evenly amongst the case and bake in the oven for 18 - 20 minutes 
  7. Once cooked, pop a skewer in the middle to see if they are cooked! If the skewer comes out clean, they are and can be places on a cooling rack to cool!  
Oreo Butter cream Ingredient's
175g Softened Unsalted Butter 
4 Crushed Oero's 
1- 2 tbs Skimmed milk 
1tsp Vanilla Extract 
350g Sift icing Sugar
Butter cream Method 
  1. Combine the softened butter in a bowl with the sifted icing sugar 
  2. Once mixed thoroughly add the milk to soften 
  3. Pop your Oero's in a food processor and whizz them together, then add the crushed Oero's to your butter cream mixture. 
  4. Once all the mixture is combined use a 1M Wilton nozzle and pipping bag to top your cupcake. I then finish by either popping in half a full sized Oero or a mini one!
And there we have it, always a crowd pleaser! What's your favourite cupcake recipe?
