So last week I decided to make a batch of Oreo cupcakes, but with a difference, I am a lover of filling cupcakes with something special, and these are no different.

Biting into these cupcakes you will get everything you ever need in a chocolate based cupcake: Moist chocolate chip cake, Chocolate Oreo buttercream, Chocolate whipped dessert, and of course the star of the show OREOS! 


Ingredients:
Makes (Aprox) 24 Cupcakes 

For the cake:
  • 100g Flour
  • 75g Coco powder
  • 175g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 2 Tsp milk

For the filling:
  • One packet of chocolate whipped dessert (Angel delight)

For the buttercream:
  • 300g Icing sugar
  • 100g Unsalted butter
  • 4-5 Finely crushed Oreos
  • 20g Melted milk chocolate 
  • Whole Oreos for decoration

Method:

CAKE
  1. Preheat oven to 185Degrees
  2. Soften butter in a stand mixer and gradually add the caster sugar, mix until light and fluffy (5 mins)
  3. In a separate bowl sift the flour, coco powder, baking powder and salt
  4. Slowly add the dry mixture to the butter/sugar mixture 
  5. Once everything is incorporated, add the eggs one at a time, then the milk
  6. Mix until just combined 
  7. Line a cupcake tin with paper liners 
  8. Pour the cake batter 1/2 way up the cupcake liners 
  9. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. 
  10.  Leave to cool on a wire rack 

FILLING
  1. Using a whisk or stand mixer make up your whipped topping according to packet instructions then leave to cool and semi set in the fridge.
  2. Once the cupcakes are completely cool, cut out a hole in the top about 3/4 of the way down and using a piping bag, pipe the whipped dessert into each cupcake 

BUTTERCREAM
  1. Beat the butter in a stand mixer for 5 minutes until pale and fluffy
  2. Gradually add the icing sugar a little at a time 
  3. Once fully incorporated pour in the melted chocolate and finely crushed Oreos
  4. Using a piping bag pipe the Oreo buttercream onto the tops of the cupcakes using any piping nozzle you prefer
  5. Top with a Oreo and enjoy.
