Oreo Cupcake

My youngest daughter: 'What are you making, mommy?'
Me: 'Oreo Cupcake'.
Daughter:  'Yipee.. can I help?'
Me: 'Yup!'


Then, off she went to tell her other two siblings about it and all of them are excited to taste the cupcakes. Well, I don't have to tell you that they love Oreos.  Who doesn't?  Be it if you are a kid or an adult, the reaction will be the same.. oooohhh Oreeeooosss!! lol

This is a wonderful cupcake recipe.  If you are entertaining at your child's birthday party or an-all adult tea-party, give this a try.  It's not too sweet and the whipping cream frosting is so perfect with Oreos. This is so popular that it lived up to it's name 'now you see it, now you don't'. Kakakakaka



Here's the recipe:
Makes 12 large cupcakes or 23 medium sized.

21/2 cups white flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup (240g) butter at room temperature
11/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
8 finely chopped Oreo cookies/biscuits

Frosting:
1 cup whipping cream (I used 1 1/2cup as I love more frosting on cupcakes especially with whipping cream)
3 tbsp powdered sugar
Oreo cookies crushed (but I used it whole instead or break in two)


How to do it?? Here's how:

1. Preheat oven to 170dC, Prepare muffin tin with paper cup liners.
2. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy at medium speed.
4. Lower speed to low and add eggs one at a time.
5. Gradually add the flour mixture and finally the chopped oreos.
6. Fill cupcake cases 3/4 full and bake for 20-25mins or until done.  Let cool and frost.

Frosting:
Beat whipping cream with the sugar until cream (soft peaks).  Add coarsely chopped oreos and mix well. Place a heaping tablespoon of frosting on top of each cupcake.
(I did not mix the oreos into the frosting but instead, just break them in two and place it on top of the frosting).
