Cookies and cream is a combination which has been tried widely in cakes and desserts. So I decided to make my version of the cupcakes. For the cupcake recipe I used my eggless chocolate cupcakes I posted earlier with little change for a more fluffier texture. I also made a video for the same. The batter has an oreo cookie stuffed inside before baking. And the cream has the oreo crumbs in it. And finally, an oreo cookie tops the whole cupcake.
As I do a variety of cookies at home, including oreos, I am not a huge fan of store bought oreos. But my daughter loves it. Though she tasted just one of the entire batch, she loved it so much. The cupcakes are so soft and the addition of oreo in the batter gives a nice crunch inside it. I have placed the whole oreo inside the batter, but you can also break the cookies and add them in the batter. It depends on ones preference.
Makes 16 Cupcakes
Cake Flour-1 1/2 cups
Cocoa Powder-5 tbs
Baking Soda-1 tsp
Water-1 cup ( add 2 tbs coffee decoction or 1/4 tsp of instant coffee)
Apple Cider Vinegar-1 tsp
Vanilla Essence-1 tsp
Oreo Cookies – 16
For The Frosting:
Whipped Cream – 2 – 3 cups
Oreo Cookies – 5 (for crumbs)
Oreo Cookies For Decoration
Preheat oven to 175°C.
Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
In a bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and cocoa powder.
Mix together water and coffee powder.
Add oil, coffee water, apple cider vinegar and vanilla essence to the flour mixture.
Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Now fill 1/3rd of each liner with the batter. Place a cookie in each liner.
Fill it more with batter and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack.
In a mixer jar add oreo cookies and grind to a fine crumb.
Add 3/4th of this to the whipped cream and gently mix.
Fill this cookie cream in a piping bag and pipe out swirls on the cupcake.
Top it with more cookie crumbs and an oreo cookie.
For the frosting you can use any cream you like. As I had whipping cream, I used it. You can also use butter cream, IMBC, SMBC or boiled flour butter cream. And the amount of cookie crumbs added also depends upon how dark you need your cream to be.If you like my video, subscribe to my channel to receive updates. And do like the video on YouTube.
