Get The Recipe: Easy Oreo Cupcakes

Who doesn't like cake? Who doesn't like Oreo or chocolate in general? Not many people, which makes this recipe extra-exciting to post! I'm a massive chocoholic, and Oreo flavoured things are just the best thing on earth, so combining this within a cake recipe is a fantastic thing for my taste buds. What's even better is that this recipe is so easy to follow; they may look like chocolate cupcakes with a fancy upgrade, but they are just as simple to make. While this recipe tops off the cakes with a cream cheese frosting, you can opt for buttercream if you prefer- I find that cream cheese does lighten the flavour of an otherwise heavy chocolate cake though. So, enough ramble, here's the recipe you've been waiting for...


For The Cakes

75g baking spread
75g caster sugar
65g self raising flour
2 small/medium eggs
15g cocoa powder
4 Oreo biscuits
A drop of vanilla extract
A splash of milk

For The Icing

35g butter
50g cream cheese
150g icing sugar
4 Oreo biscuits
A drop of vanilla extract

6 more Oreos to decorate (or use mini Oreos)

Recipe (Makes 12)

1. Preheat the oven to and 180°C pop some cupcake cases in a tray.

2. Cream the baking spread and sugar together until light and fluffy, before beating in the two eggs.

3. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, making sure that there is no lumps and that everything is combined well.

4. Finely crush (or whizz up in a food processor) the oreo biscuits before adding these to the cake mixture. Mix these in along with the vanilla before adding the milk just to loosen up the mixture a bit and make it smoother.

5. Evenly spread the mixture between the cupcake cases before baking in the oven for arund 15 minutes, or until the cakes feel springy and light.

6. While you leave these to cool on a wire rack, start making the icing by beating some butter just to soften this. Combine the cream cheese with this, before sifting in the icing sugar bit by bit to ensure a smoother texture (and avoid it flying everywhere). Crush up the Oreo biscuits like before before dropping in the vanilla extract. Mix all together (being careful not to overmix) and put aside until the cakes are sufficiently cooled.

7. Spoon or pipe the icing onto the cakes before finishing off with a bit of Oreo decoration (yep, more Oreos!). I used leftover Oreos broken in half, but mini Oreos also work perfectly fine.

I love this recipe and am so happy with how they turned out; I will definitely be making another batch! I adapted this recipe from this one here, changing the quantities slightly and just playing around with the basic recipe, so feel free to do that with my version too to find what works for you. Happy baking!

Let me know if you try this recipe? Are these something you would make at home?
