Oreo Cupcakes

Oreo Cupcake

Stuck at home for the 2nd week running, I have decided to mark the 2 extra Kgs with another sweet something. Have looked around the kitchen to see what I could find, and having found oreo cookies, cane sugar and rum, decided to make my version of the Oreo Cupcakes.

Have you ever fantasized about what you would do to feed your family if ever your town or city should be under siege and food supplies cut off? Hub said I probably do alot of that when you see the piles of stuff I have stuffed everywhere in my kitchen. I wish though that they do have expiry dates, this way I wouldn't have to constantly find ways to finish them before the siege.

Oreo Cupcakes (makes 7 big cupcakes) :

The cupcake :

200g Self-raising Flour
2 Tbsp unsweetened Cocoa powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
125g Butter
80g Cane Sugar
2 Tsp Rum
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
2 Eggs
180ml Milk
9 Oreos

The Topping :

125ml Whipping cream
1 Tbsp Icing Sugar
2 drops Vanilla Extract
1 Oreo

Heat oven to 180°C.

Cream butter till creamy then add in the sugar. Beat till well mixed.

Add in the vanilla extract and then beat in the eggs one at a time.

Alternately beat in the flour and the milk.

Turn over so that cookie's at the bottom before putting on topping

Line the muffin mould with half of an oreo biscuit each (removing one round disc). Pour the batter into the mould and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool.

Grind 1 Oreo cookie into bits. Whip the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla extract. Add in the ground oreos and mix well.

Pipe or spoon the topping onto the cooled cupcakes. Decorate with the round oreo discs.

Topping can also be made with cream cheese or butter. And one can also add ground oreo bits into the cupcake mixture. Personally I'm only interested in the oreo cream. Hub saw me eating it and cried, "Extra pounds!"

Still trying to find the courage to do your oreo cheesecake for the family. Problem is if I fail, I'll have to eat it myself and I don't usually eat baked cheesecakes.
