These cupcakes are definitely one of my favourites. Simply because I love Oreo cookies, and of course, chocolate cupcakes. πŸ˜‰ I have made sure to load these cupcakes with plenty of Oreo crumbs to ensure that you will taste Oreos in every bite. You Oreo lovers are gonna love them!

These cupcakes are super easy to make. There’s no creaming method involved, meaning no mixer required (only for the frosting, of course!). Simply whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another, then mix the two together until smooth and combined. Divide the batter between muffin cases, and bake for 15 – 17 minutes. Once cooled, make your frosting, and pipe away!

You can garnish with whole Oreo cookies, or even more Oreo crumbs. It’s entirely up to you how you want to make these cupcakes extra pretty.

  • 1 cup cake flour* 100g
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder 50g
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Oreo crumbs 50g, about 5 Oreos

  • 1 cup unsalted butter 226g, softened

  • 3 - 4 tablespoons milk

Instructions

For the Cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin cases, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and Oreo crumbs. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs. Add the sugar, and whisk until combined. Add the vanilla extract, butter, and yoghurt, and whisk until combined. Fold in the dry ingredients.

  5. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat together the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the Oreo crumbs and milk until smooth, and spreadable. Add more milk if needed. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag, and frost the cooled cupcakes. You can also frost the cupcakes using a palette knife like pictured. Decorate with whole Oreos, or more Oreo crumbs.

    Marsha, these are seriously an oreo lover’s dream come true! In fact, they’re totally a dessert/food lover’s dream come true. They’re absolutely birthday-worthy. <– Basically, the most important occasion for perfect desserts. πŸ™‚ I especially love the photo where one cupcake is unwrapped and bitten into. Makes me imagine it was me doing the biting. Lololol. Stunning as always! xo
