Cookies and Cream inspired cupcakes, with Oreo biscuit base. :D



  • 3/4 cup of plain flour

  • 1/4 cup of cocoa

  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar ( but I use nearly 2/3 if the batter isnt sweet enough)

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence (add more if you like vanilla)

  • 1/3 cup of butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup of milk

  • 2 packets of Oreos


  • (I do this step by taste but aprox)

  • 2 cups of icing sugar

  • 1/2 cup of soft butter

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (add accoring to taste)

  • 1 cup of crushed Oreo biscuits


  • 1.


  • 2.

    1. Preheat oven to 180*C. Place 12 patty pans in cupcake tin and place 1 oreo at the bottom of the patty pan.

  • 3.

    2. Sift all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  • 4.

    3. Make a small well in the centre of the mixture and add remaining ingredients.

  • 5.

    4. Beat on low speed with an electric mixer until just combined. (Scraped down the sides to make sure all the eg is mixed in).

  • 6.

    5. Beat on medium speed for 2 more minutes.

  • 7.

    6. TASTE, taste the batter, if the batter isnt sweet enough add extra sugar or else when cooked it will become a tad bitter :D

  • 8.

    7. Scoop the batter into the patty pans. (I like to move the tin back a forth to flatten the mixture in the patty pans to make the batter rise evenly.

  • 9.

    8. Cook for 15-18 minutes.

  • 10.


  • 11.

    1. Crush up the remaining Oreo's in a zip lock bag.

  • 12.

    2. Beat icing sugar, butter and vanilla essence in mixing bowl. (Add more butter or sugar depending on required consitency. I like it not too thick as I pipe with a piping bag and adding the biscuts makes the mixure thick anyway.)

  • 13.

    3. Add fully crushed biscuit pieces and mix through with a mixer to remove chunks.

  • 14.

    4. Pipe onto cakes or just spread on with a small spatula. Whatever you like :D


Baking is all about taste, so if the mixture isnt sweet enough or flavoursome enough add more sugar or cocoa or vanilla, etc :D
