For the Cakes

  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 40g Cocoa Powder
  • 280g Caster Sugar
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 80g Unsalted Butter
  • 240ml Whole Milk
  • 2 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 12 Oreo Biscuits
  • 12 Muffin Cases

For the Frosting

  • 100g Unsalted Butter
  • 160g Cream Cheese
  • 350g Icing Sugar
  • 6 Oreo Biscuits


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/160 fan. Line a muffin tray with paper muffin cases. twist 12 Oreos to separate them, and place half in each case, with the cream facing upwards.Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and butter in a large bowl and mix until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.
  2. Whisk the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a separate jug, then slowly add half into the flour mixture, and beat well to get rid of any lumps. Gradually add the rest of the milk mixture whilst mixing until smooth.
  3. Add the mixture to the paper cases, making sure they are equally full (about two-thirds). Bake the cakes in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Whilst the cakes are cooking, smash up 6 Oreos in a bag and set aside. Whisk the butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Then, gently fold in the Oreo Crumbs.
  5. When the cakes have cooled, pipe the icing onto the cakes and use any left over Oreos to decorate.

The cakes did not rise at all and came out flat and dense. However apart from the cakes, the icing and the rest was nice.

I was extremely disappointed with this recipe. I completed the method correctly and used exactly the right ingredients yet my cupcakes were flat,overflowing the cases and the middle was almost hollow with air? Does anybody know why this is? I have no idea and was really looking forward too these cakes:(

if you want a slight variation you can dip the cupcakes in melted dark chocolate and set before adding the icing, it tastes delicious

Great recipe, I only had salted butter so left out the pinch of salt and I also used mini Oreos for decoration and they looked really sweet and tasted delicious.
