◉ oreo~eo~eo

always looking for new recipes:
different recipes from the usual
Libbie found one for these cupcakes:
and you know what?
they are rather nom!
well they are after some tweaks:

oreo cupcakes

you will need ....

a pack of oreos
120g softened unsalted butter
120g caster sugar
120g plain flour
60g cocoa powder
3 eggs
1½ teaspoons baking powder
60ml milk

preheat your oven to 180°c/ gas 4
line your muffin tin with paper cases
then twist each oreo to separate the top and bottom
put the creamy side of an oreo into each paper case

cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy
then mix in the eggs one at a time
in a separate bowl ~ mix all the dry ingredients
then add them, with the milk to the bowl
and mix carefully
pile this mixture onto your prepared cases
and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or so
they should be springily firm
leave to cool completely before icing
I iced these with a mixture of cream cheese and
sifted icing sugar: 
then blitzed up the remaining oreo halves
and sprinkled them on the top:
can you see the oreo half in the bottom of the cake?
it left an imprint on the empty case!
{if you're not too jazzed for the chocolate cakey part then 
you could omit the cocoa powder and add a few 
drops of vanilla extract}
