Oreo-Stuffed Cucakes–Does it get any better?

Since Lu's b-day party is later this week, I decided to go for cupcakes for the family and a cake for her party.  Someone brought the yummiest Oreo cupcakes ever to a fun-run this spring, and I just had to try making them!  Unfortunately, I have no idea who made them.  I had to improvise.   Using the internet and my memory, I guessed a recipe, and it turned out great!

On a side note--I challenge anyone to eat these without getting cream on their nose!  (I couldn't do it.)

Oreo-in-the-middle Cupcakes with real cream and Oreo frosting

For the cake--prepare your favorite chocolate cake recipe or mix and follow my directions.

Step 1--Line the pan with baking cups and fill with just enough batter to cover the bottom of each cup.

 

Step 2--Place an Oreo in each cup. (Mine were double stuffed, but I think any kind of Oreo would work.).

 

Step 3--Pour in remaining batter (you may end up with a little extra) until each cup is 2/3 (or a little more) full.

 

Gently tap or slide pans from side to side so that the batter settles around the Oreos, and follow your baking instructions.  Cool completely before frosting.

My frosting recipe comes from oreocupcakes.org.  (She has lots of yummy-looking Oreo recipes!)

 

  • 1 1/4 cups whipping cream
  • 3 tbls. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  •  1/2 cup Oreo cookie crumbs

In mixing bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until the frosting gets slightly stiff.  Gently fold in cookie crumbs.  (Crumbs need to be very small so that they don't clog up your decorating tip.)

Using real decorating tools or a plastic bag with the corner cut off, pipe frosting onto cupcakes.  This is the first time I have every piped frosting onto cupcakes.  I'll admit, I made a huge mess, and the cupcakes didn't look nearly as nice (or even close to) the cupcakes I was trying to copy--but I have never enjoyed licking my fingers more!!!  The frosting tastes like cookies and cream ice cream!  Yum!

*I enjoyed these even better the second and third day--when the cookie softened a little bit.  (Don't forget to refrigerate your leftovers--if there are any!)

  5. was wondering, my oreos came out soft after baking, are they suppose to be hard? or is soft the normal? I just had one from a friend and it was a hard bite/crunch, but I am worried mine won't turn out that way.

    • Hmm. It has been a really long time since I made these, but it seems to me like my Oreos stayed somewhat crunchy. I think it would be impossible for them not to absorb a little bit of moisture from the wet batter. I don't remember them being as crunchy as a fresh oreo, but they definitely weren't mushy. Sorry I can't be more of a help. I can't make these anymore, because we had to go gluten free at my house.

  6. These are looking simply incredible !!
