What you will need to make the cupcake:

200g Plain Flour

40g Cocoa Power

280g Caster Sugar

3tsp Baking Powder

Pinch of salt

80g of Unsalted Butter

240ml Whole Milk

2 Egg

1/2 Vanilla Extract

12 Oreo Biscuits Crushed

What you will need to make the frosting:

240ml Whipping cream

1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

25g Sugar

Method :

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/338°F

2. Line the cupcake tray with cupcake cases and set a side.

3. Place into a dry bowl: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and butter and mix slowly till a sand-like consistency.

If you only have salted butter then don’t add any extra salt.

Also, if the butter is soft it will be easier to combine and will be less messy!

4. Into another bowl, add the milk, eggs and vanilla extract and whisk.

5. Add the liquid mixture into the flour mixture slowly while mixing.

6. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

7. Add the crushed Oreo Biscuits in to the mixture and mix with a wooden spoon.

Mixing with wooden spoon ensures that the mixture is not over worked.

8. Equally divide the mixture into the cupcake cases with an ice cream scoop and gently tap the tray on the counter.

9. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

10. Into a cold bowl, tip the whipping cream, vanilla extract and sugar and whip till stiff peaks and transfer to piping bag.

11. Frost the cupcakes once it has cooled, and top with a few Oreo crumbs.

I hope you try out the cupcakes and share them with your friends and family.
