I love cake and I love baking. I’m not so good at cleaning up the mess afterwards though, and I’m also a bit slap dash as you’ll see from my recipe, but these Oreo cupcakes are AMAZING!
This is our favourite cupcake recipe. Z and S like to lick the spoon then rapidly lose interest.
125g self raising flour
125g caster sugar
1/4 tea spoon baking powder
A splash of vanilla essence
Ready made frosting
Just bung all the ingredients apart from the oreos and frosting into your mixing bowl and mix well for a few minutes, until light and fluffy ish.
Divide into about 6 large muffin cases, more if you are making smaller cakes.
Squish an oreo into each one, making sure it is covered with cake mixture.
Bake for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees or until slightly brown on top
Leave to cool.
Add frosting to a piping bag, with a nozzle on the end ( I usually put it in the fridge for a bit to harden )
Ice cupcakes, and decorate as you want.
