Original Oreo cupcakes

Hey guys,
These are my original recipe Oreo cupcakes and I'd like to show you lot how to make them so here we go! You will need to start out by gathering the following ingredients:
  • 2 packets of Oreos (any flavour)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 110 g plain flour
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 310 g butter, softened
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 100g icing sugar
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/ 350F / Gas 4 and place about 18 cupcake cases on a baking tray. Next fill them with 1 whole Oreo each.

2. Put 110g of the butter and the caster sugar in a bowl and beat until pale and fluffy. Next sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl. Beat the eggs and vanilla and add to the bowl. Beat until just combined. Now, add 30g of the cocoa powder and mix it all together.

3. Spoon generous amounts of the mixture into the cupcake cases on top of the Oreos and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes. (When you take them out of the oven allow them to cool for 20 minutes)

4. Take 5 Oreos and crush them up, I did this by putting them in a bowl and smashing the with the end of a rolling pin however you can also put them in a freezer bag and hit them. As long as they end up in little bite size pieces all is good.

5. Mix together the remaining butter, cocoa powder and icing sugar, beat until it forms a smooth thick buttercream icing. Put the buttercream on top of the cakes and sprinkle with crushed Oreo chunks for a chocolatey masterpiece!!!

I hope you enjoy making my Oreo cupcakes and send me picture of them on Instagram using the hashtag #ashesoreos I look forward to seeing them!!!

Have a great day guys!
