My Baking Diary - Oreo Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

I LOVE CUPCAKES! Especially Oreo Cupcakes! Yummy! I baked these quite a while ago, but forgotten all about it! So here goes the recipe and some photos of my masterpiece to share!! =) Hope you guys like it! Its really fun to bake them, not too difficult, and taste absolutely AWESOME! 

The Ingredients

For the Cupcakes:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup hot water
24 Oreos, plus more for crumbs

For the Frosting:

1 cup shortening
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3-6 Tablespoons milk
2 or more teaspoons Oreo cookie crumbs

Steps to Bake the Cupcakes:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line tray with baking cups.
  • Place one whole cookie in each cup or break apart at least 12 cookies and place the broken pieces into each cup.
  • Mix the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl using a wire whisk.
  • Add the eggs, oil, vanilla and milk and mix well until thoroughly combined. Add the hot water and mix until combined.
  • Transfer the batter (it will be very liquid) to a large measuring cup and then pour batter into each baking cup so it’s about three quarters full. You should have a little left over.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes.
(**Makes at least 12 cupcakes**)

Steps to prepare the frosting:
  • Beat the shortening in a mixer until smooth.
  • Add vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the powdered sugar in three additions, scraping down the sides after each addition.
  • Add a Tablespoon of milk at a time and mix together until you achieve the consistency you like.
  • Add the cookie crumbs and mix until completely combined. You can add more if you like, but I just wanted a light speckling to show off the white frosting.
  • Place frosting in a decorator bag with a 1M tip and swirl on top of each cupcake.
  • Insert a cookie on top of each cupcake.
  • You can also apply frosting on each cupcake in a mounded shape. Turn upside down and roll the top around in a small bowl of cookie crumbs to coat.
**Note: If you would like to pile the frosting on higher, you should double this recipe to make sure you have enough.

Pretty & Yummy Cupcakes For You and Your Love Ones!! =)
