Cupcakes with Oreos

I made these cupcakes with my two best friends, Eline and Annabell, in the summer and they are lovely! Not only are there oreos in the cupcakes themselves, but also in the icing. Yum!
The recipe came from the book '500 cupcakes' from Fergal Connolly, a lovely book with tons of yummy cupcakes!
This recipe will make approximately 18 cupcakes. I'm sorry if not everything is clear, I translated it from Dutch, and I don't know all the baking jargon in English.


For the cupcakes
230 g soft butter
230 very fine sugar
230 g selfrising baking flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
10 crumbled/crushed double chocolate cookies (i.e. Oreos or similar cookies)

For the icing
600 g powdered sugar (sieved)
230 g soft butter
Pinch of salt
10 crumbled/crushed double chocolate cookies (i.e. Oreos or similar cookies)

Warm up the oven to 175 degrees celsius or gas setting 2-3. Put 18 cupcake/muffin forms in the muffin bakingplate. Put all ingredients for the cupcakes except the crushed cookies in a big bowl and use a mixer to mix them for 2-3 minutes so you get a light-coloured, creamy batter. Carefully scoop (so not using the mixer but using a spoon!) the cookie crumbles through the batter. Put the batter in the cupcake forms and bake for 20 minutes. Take the baking plates out of the oven and let them cool down for 5 minutes. After that, take the cupcakes out and let them cool down.

For the icing, mix the powdered sugar with butter and salt using a mixer. Put some icing on each cupcake and sprinkle some cookie crumbles over them.


The powdered sugar used in the icing is a huge amount, therefore just slowly add the powdered sugar until you like the icing.

If you made them, tell me if you liked them!
