Preparation time: 40 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: Makes 8 cupcakes

Ingredients

For the cupcakes:

  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 2 eggs

 

For the buttercream:

  • 6 crushed oreos
  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 25ml milk

 

Method

Cupcakes

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line a muffin tray with 8 muffin cases.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract together using an electric whisk, until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat the eggs into the mixture.
  4. Sift the flour and cocoa powder and then fold it into the mixture.
  5. Mix the ingredients well and add the milk.
  6. Divide the mixture between the cases. I used an ice-cream scoop to evenly spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.

 

Buttercream

  1. Using a food processor crush the oreo cookies. Alternatively, place the biscuits in a bag and crush them using a rolling pin.
  2. Beat the icing sugar and butter together using an electric whisk.
  3. Pour in the milk and stir.
  4. Fold in the crushed oreo cookies.
  5. Once the cupcakes are cool, pipe the buttercream onto the cakes (for these cupcakes I didn’t use a piping bag but used a knife to swirl on the icing).
  6. Place half an oreo cookie in the centre of the cupcake and sprinkle leftover cookie crumbs onto the cakes.
