Sunday Funday: Oreo Cupcakes


 
Hello Lovelies,
 
As usual, my weekends contain a lot of baking and this week I thought I would bake some Oreo Cupcakes - how amazing do these look? If I don't say so myself.
 
I have left the recipe below so you make these cupcakes too





Ingredients:

Cupcakes:
200g Plain Flour
240g Caster Sugar
3tsp Baking Powder
80g Butter (unsalted)
2 medium eggs
2tsp Vanilla Extract
100ml of milk (I used semi-skimmed)
1 packet of Oreo's

*note you can add 40g of Cocoa Powder if you want chocolate sponge*

Butter Icing:
175g butter (unsalted)
350g icing sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
1 packet of Oreo's (4 crushed and the rest for decoration)

Method:

1) Preheat your oven to 180 or gas mark 4 and line a muffin tray with cupcake cases, pop a whole Oreo into each case

2) Cream your butter and caster sugar together until it is all smooth then add in your vanilla extract and eggs

3) Sift your flour and baking powder (and cocoa powder if you want a chocolate sponge) and add some of this to your butter/sugar mixture and then some milk and keep adding little bits at a time and mixing until it's all included. 
*If you find your mixture is too runny add some flour and if it's too thick add a bit more milk*

4) pour the mixture into the cases (over the oreo's) about 3/4 full and bake for 15 mins turning half way through.

5) While your cupcakes are baking you can move on to making the icing. Crush up around 4 oreos so they are fine crumbs (make sure you don't have big lumps as they will get stuck in the piping nozzle, speaking from experience)

6) cream together the butter and icing sugar, then add in your vanilla extract and crushed oreo's and mix well. Add to piping bag and pipe onto your cupcakes once they have cooled down.
