Blogmas day 18 | Tanya Burr's Oreo cupcakes

Hello
I wanted to chat to you about the oreo cupcakes I made. I got the recipe from Tanya Burr's video and they were so quick and easy to make. Tanya made the cake mix from scratch but if you don't have all the ingredients or you don't want the hassle of making the mix, you could just by a ready made chocolate cake mix.

For these cupcakes you will need | 
275g butter
165g caster sugar
3 eggs
40g cocoa powder
125g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 pack oreo's
200g icing sugar

For the cake mix, put 175g butter, all the caster sugar, eggs, cocoa powder, flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix together. You could do it a little bit at a time but to save time I just put all the cake mix ingredients into a bowl and mixed. Make sure you sieve all the dry ingredients before mixing them all together.

Put an Oreo on the bottom of each cupcake case and then fill with the cake mix. Pop them in the oven for 15-17 minutes at around 180'c. 

While your cupcakes are cooking, make a start on the frosting. Mix the remaining 100g of butter and your icing sugar together until smooth. Crush one pack of Oreo's and then fold into the frosting. If you want to add more Oreo's than just buy another pack as you will need to make sure you have 12 spare cookies for decoration. 

When your cakes are ready take them out of the oven and leave to cool. When. They are cool enough, your can put the frosting on the top. I did try to use a piping bag but the Oreo's blocked the nozzle, I would suggest just putting a big spoon of the frosting on each and smooth out. Top your cupcakes with an Oreo and then tuck in. 






I hope you enjoyed this post. Come back tomorrow for Blogmas day 19!

Bye for now xxx
