Aimee Bakes: Oreo Cupcakes

Is anyone else sat dribbling over The Great British Bake Off? I want a poached pear wrapped in pastry...YUM! So just to get you salivating even more, here is my recipe for the perfect Oreo Cupcakes. I made them for a bake sale a couple of weeks ago and they were one of the most popular and for good reason, they are delicious!




Cupcakes

85g self raising flour
25g Horlicks
15g cocoa powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
125g caster sugar
135g unsalted butter, softened
2 large free-range eggs
1 & 1/2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 packet of Oreo cookies


Buttercream 
200g unsalted butter, softened

450g icing sugar, sifted
3 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 packet of crushed Oreos

Plus extra Oreos for decoration.




1. Sift the flour, Horlicks, cocoa powder, bicarbonate soda, salt and caster sugar into a bowl and combine with a spoon.

2. Whisk the butter until pale and creamy. Then add half of the eggs and half of the dry mixture. Mix thoroughly, then add the rest of the eggs and dry mixture. mix until smooth and combined. 


3. Add the milk and vanilla extract.


4. Place a WHOLE Oreo cookie in the bottom of your cupcake cases. Then spoon in the mixture so that the cases are about 2/3 full.


5. Bake at 170C for 22 minutes or until a skewers comes out clean. Once cooked, leave them to cool completely on a cooling rack.


6. While they're cooling, we need to make the buttercream! Mix the butter until pale and creamy, then slowly add the icing sugar and mix well. Add the milk and vanilla extract. Once completely smooth, add the crushed Oreos. 


7. Top them off with half an Oreo, just because it obviously needs even more Oreos!


If you don't like Oreos then this really isn't the post for you, but don't worry I've got your back, I have a few more recipes coming up.
