Nom nom nom.

It's the holidays, and I baked cupcakes just for the sheer fun of it -- and also because my cupcake-a-day tear-off calendar was taunting me with its pictures of Cookies & Cream cupcakes. Cookies & Cream cupcakes? I know, right. Well I made them and they looked a little bit strange (granted, it could simply be my awkward stylistic skills) but they tasted good. Anything will taste good if it has twenty Oreos in it. That sounds like a joke, but I'm not kidding. This recipe calls for twenty Oreos. Nom.

225g butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 cups self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
10 crushed Oreos*

*(oh wow just had the most amazing idea. You could make these with crushed mint slice biscuits. *gulp*) Okay.

Preheat the oven to 175C and line muffin pans with foil patty cases (my mix made about eighteen cupcakes). Combine all the ingredients -- except the cookies -- in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer about two minutes. Stir in the cookies and then spoon the batter into the patty cases. Bake for about 20 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 mins and then on a wire rack.

3 cups icing sugar mixture
225g butter, softened
10 crushed Oreos (again)

For the icing, beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy and yummy. Then beat in the cookies. Spread on top of your oh so delicious cupcakes and then eat one, for goodness sake!

PS. The picture below makes me laugh. I accidentally took it when I was trying for the top picture. It looks so forlorn, those two wee cupcakes all alone in an ocean of table.

Bohoharri -- I miss you, too -- A LOT! Stand by: I am coming to lurk your LJ. You better have posted! ;)

Rebecaa -- yes, definitely tough :(. Still praying.

Samantha R. -- and one of the best things about God is that He has promised to give us all we need. YES.

The First Rose -- that is precisely what I'm hoping about this season, too! Enjoying spending a bit more time with God :). Yes, it sounds like Sono's illness has been quite a sudden thing. :(

Mitanika -- oh, a prayer journal is a brilliant idea! I hope it provides lots of rich talk-time with God. You'll have to let me know how it goes.


  1. They were soooo gooood. The extra o's being necessary to illustrate just how much I liked them. I want to make them but I know if I plan to I'll just eat all the Oreos first and then have to buy more to make them...it could be a neverending cycle.:(

  2. Oh! Yum! I love Cookies 'N Cream food. I have never had that type of cupcake but I have a recipe for Cookies 'N Cream Cheesecakes. They are extremely tasty but also not very good for old the waisteline. Why is it that good tasting food often isn't actually good for you? I hope you enjoy those cupcakes; or have they all been enjoyed already?

  3. I'm glad you're posting more! Do you want me to advertise your blog in mine? I almost did before, but wasn't sure if you wanted that since yours seems a bit more personal.

    I want to make these! They look great. I will have to look up what 225g of butter equals. Oh and what do you mean by "icing sugar mixture"? You mean powdered sugar, or having some water mixed in?

  4. Ruth, that's why you just start out with an extra package of Oreos so you can eat while you cook and still have plenty!

  5. I just drooled on my desk. Far out.

  6. How the hell do you bake so goodly!
