Hey guys! So today’s post is a little bit different since its not related to beauty, but since its a Five Minute Fix post I thought I could get away with it! I got the inspiration, and the recipe for these cupcakes from Tanya Burr’s blog post and video since I thought they looked so delicious and I had to try them. As you can obviously read the recipe on her blog, I thought I would do a more photo-based post for you and show you the step-by-step method. I hope you enjoy this type of post, and please let me know if you make these Oreo cupcakes!
165g caster sugar
40g cocoa powder
125g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 pack of Oreos
2 packs Oreos
200g icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 180°C
Place your cupcake cases into your tins. I think this recipe makes 12 but I easily made 16!
Weigh 175g of butter or margarine
Weigh 165g of caster sugar
Cream the eggs and sugar together – you can use a wooden spoon but it is far easier if you have an electric whisk!
Whizz them together until your mixture is creamy, smooth and lighter in colour
Crack three eggs into your mixing bowl
Mix together until the mixture is lighter and looser
Take 40g of cocoa powder
Take a teaspoon of baking powder
Sieve your cocoa powder, baking powder, and 125g of self raising flour together into the bowl – this puts air into the mixture whilst ensuring the ingredients are blended together
All your cake ingredients are now in the bowl – minus the oreos!
Using your spoon or electric whisk, give your mixture a quick stir to fold the dry ingredients into the wet
Pop an Oreo into the bottom of every cupcake case – don’t worry if you use more than a pack since there will be plenty of Oreos for the icing
Put your tray into the oven for around 15 minutes, give or take a few minutes depending on your oven!
Now to prepare the frosting! Take a pack of Oreos.
Crush the biscuits up in a bag using a rolling pin
Weigh out 200g of icing sugar
Weigh out 100g of butter or margarine
Take out your cupcakes when they are cooked. To check they are cooked, lightly press on them to see if they bounce back – if they do, then it’s likely their done! Or, you can poke a skewer into them to check it comes out clean with no mixture on it.
Blend the icing sugar and butter together
Stir in the crushed Oreos
Use a spoon to push the mixture onto the cakes when they have fully cooled down. Pop half an Oreo into them as a finishing touch!
P.S. I would absolutely love it if Tanya saw this post – I know it’s not likely! But if you enjoyed reading it would mean the world if you tweeted this to her! x
