For the cakes

Heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Recipe

  • 18 Oreo thins (you can use the same amount of normal Oreos for this step)
  • 200g Butter
  • 200g Caster sugar – sifted
  • 150g Self raising flour – sifted
  • 50g Cocoa powder – sifted
  • 4 eggs
  • 50ml Whole milk – this may not be needed

Method

  1. Line 18 muffin tin holes with cases. I can make 18 with this recipe but depending how many you want to make this may differ.
  2. Put an oreo in each. Like above the number may differ if you want to make more or less cakes than I do.
  3. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one by one until they are all combined.
  5. Add the flour & cocoa powder bit by bit.
  6. Mix until combined.
  7. If the mixture is slightly thick add a drop of milk. You may not need it all. I used about half.
  8. When you are happy with the consistency fill your cases.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes.

For the icing

Recipe

  • 200g  Butter
  • 500g (yes really) Icing sugar – sifted
  • 12 Oreo thins (8 if you are using normal Oreos)
  • 50ml Whole milk – this may not be needed
  • Extra Oreo thins (or normal oreos) for decoration

Method

  1. In a food processor blend the Oreo thins to crumbs
  2. Beat the butter until smooth.
  3. Bit by bit as your mixing add the icing sugar.
  4. If the icing is stiff add milk. You may not need it all.  I used about a quarter.
  5. With a wooden spoon or spatula mix in the Oreo crumbs.
  6. When the cakes are completely cool ice the cakes. I chose not to pipe mine but if you’d like to pipe yours use the biggest type of nozzle you have as the crumbs may block it.
  7. Top off with the rest of your Oreo thins (or normal oreos). I used half on each.

     

    There you have it Cookies  & Cream cupcakes! These were a hit with my whole family and my bestfriend and her boyfriend loved them too! Will definitely be making these again!

Thanks for reading!

Disclaimer: I have baked since my last baking blog, I made a Banoffe Cake, but it was a messy disaster and the recipe needs a few tweaks before I’ll be able to blog it! There is a picture over on my Instagram (@bethymevs) of the finished product, if you like the look of it let me know and I’ll blog my hopefully new and improved recipe of that!
