For the sponge

  • 175 g Butter or baking spread
  • 175 g Caster sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 175 g Self raising flour
  • 12 Oreo biscuits

For the buttercream

  • 200 g Butter
  • 400 g Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp Milk
  • 100 g Oreo biscuits crushed

For decoration

  • 12 Oreo biscuits


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, and line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases and put an Oreo biscuit in the bottom of each cupcake case
  • To make the sponge, mix together the butter and sugar, using a silicone or wooden spoon, until smooth
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk well
  • Then whisk in the self raising flour
  • Divide the mixture between the 12 cupcake cases
  • Bake them for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre of the cupcakes comes out clean. Leave to cool completely
  • Make the buttercream by mixing together the butter, icing sugar, vanilla and milk. You can do this by hand or with an electric whisk. You may not need all the milk, or you may need more, it depends on what type of butter you use so add a little at a time
  • Crush the Oreos for the buttercream into crumbs using either a food processor, or in a bowl with the end of a rolling pin, then stir them into the buttercream
  • Pipe the buttercream onto each cupcake using a piping bag fitted with a nozzle. Or spread on with a spoon. Then add an Oreo biscuit on top. The biscuits will go soft after being in contact with the buttercream for a while, so add the biscuit on top as close to serving as you can
  • Store in an airtight container in a cool place, eat leftovers within 3 days
