Rita, a talented and creative baker I know from a Facebook cooking group shared a delicious looking Oreo cupcake on the group's wall and I knew I had to try it! Here, two Oreo cookies are sandwiched with a generous amounts of peanut butter and then baked in the ultimate Oreo chocolate cupcake. It sounds sinful, but it's one of those desserts you'll forget the calories for, especially if you are a chocolate and Oreo lover.
It's very easy to do but it'll be easier to visualise what I'm talking about through these step-by-step photos:
Spread a generous amount of peanut butter on each Oreo cookie and stack them in twos.
Place the pair of stacked cookie in a paper cup in a muffin tray.
Pour the chocolate batter over the Oreo cookies. Here's my daughter helping me with this. It's such an easy cupcake idea that kids can easily do it themselves!
Make sure the Oreo cookies are well covered, and bake them till the chocolate batter is done.
The Oreo cookie isn't as crispy as it was out of the box, but the Oreo, peanut butter and chocolate cake combination is extremely delicious! I really love this simple yet interesting cupcake idea and was thinking of making it for my daughter's birthday celebration in school. I am almost certain all the kids would be thrilled to bite into a chocolate cupcake with Oreos and peanut butter hidden inside!

Chocolate Batter Recipe
From Martha Stewart's One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcake

- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Sift together cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
- Add eggs, warm water, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla, and mix until smooth, about 3 minutes.

I'm back now at Melbourne. Can't believe Singapore has changed so much again within this 6 months...
Your ultimate PB chocolate cupcakes look wonderful. After this trip, I can double confirmed that home baked / cooked is always the best. Sad that the fact that most Singaporeans eat out most of the time. Good that you are baking and cooking well for your family.
Oh Wow! These look incredible Mich. I wish you could throw me one through the screen...ReplyDelete
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW, I surely will give it a tryn :)ReplyDelete
If I don't add buttermilk, is it okay?ReplyDelete
