What a beautiful day today to blog about these absolutely gorgeous Oreo cupcakes :) Ever been to a birthday party or an event where Oreo cookie cupcakes were served that got you wondering how to make Oreo cupcakes? Well, being a baker, I feel like that is the first most reaction on looking at another baker’s work lol. Mostly, it is not even intentional. Sometimes, I just catch myself analyzing the food I’m eating (any food really) and making mental notes of how I would make it even if I’m not even planning on making it haha. I wanted to make these Oreo cookie cupcakes not because I saw it at a party, but because the Oreo cookies were on sale at the local grocery store and I just couldn’t say no to them lol.

Now, back to doing my post on how to make Oreo cupcakes (not what I think of food when I see it lol)! So after I returned as a happy customer on buying these Oreo cookies on sale, I decided to search for a recipe I would like to try. The one I really liked was by GirlsGoneFood, although I thought that the cupcakes came out a little dry for my taste. I will probably add more butter in the future. So, to make these Oreo cupcakes, you will need cake flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter, vanilla bean paste (or extract), egg whites and the final ingredient (drum roll!) Oreo cookies!

Delicious delicious Oreo cookies!

I’ve used the original kind, but I’m sure you can use the double stuffed as well (or mint Oreo cookies to make a mint Oreo cookie cupcake and chocolate Oreo cookies to make chocolate Oreo cupcakes). Start by lining your muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large stand mixer bowl with a paddle attachment, combine the dry ingredients at a low speed.

Add in your wet ingredients…

..and beat at a medium speed until well incorporated.

Crush 10 cookies using the back of a large spoon. I crushed the cookies with the cream in it and I used a spoon, not a blender, because I wanted the chunks to be fairly visible in the cake and not appear to be like vanilla bean specs. My crushed cookie chunks were fairly large.

Add the crushed cookies to your cake batter and stir just until everything comes together. You can also use a spatula at this point to simply stir the Oreo cookies into the batter.

Fill your cupcake liners 3/4th full with the cupcake batter.

Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.

Aren’t they simply adorable? :) Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

I filled and topped my Oreo cupcakes with Oreo buttercream (or cookies and cream) frosting. Here’s an inside view of what my Oreo cookie cupcakes looked like.


And here they are once again :)

This is a fairly easy recipe which is not fail to please little kids or grown-ups alike at birthday parties or any other events. You can also make this Oreo cookie cupcake recipe with a chocolate cake instead. Another variation would be placing an Oreo cookie at the bottom of the cupcake liner and then filling it up with the batter. Play around with different ideas and you will be pleased at how well it turns out! :)

I have to do a great product shout out! It’s the cupcake stand I found at Dollarama for $3!

It will hold up to 13 cupcakes. If you can’t find it at a Dollarama near you, your next best option is the Wilton cupcake stand currently selling at 52% off for $14.57 (or the 23-count  for $19.99 for 64% off). I understand that it is not the exact same price, but Amazon is selling a Wilton brand :) This is what was in the box.

On setting up, this is what it looked like. It was slightly tilted to a side, but that’s because I did not want to tighten it too much as I wanted to be able to put it back into its box.

If you do end up getting it from Dollarama, make sure to tighten it enough before it topples over onto a side lol. Check out the next picture to know what I mean ;)

The leaning tower of cupcake! Lol. I was able to get some good shots though.
