RECIPE: Oreo Surprise Cupcakes

Hi!
I couldn't resist sharing this amazing little recipe with you all as I made some lovely Oreo cupcakes yesterday that I've named Oreo Surprise. These yummy little buns are topped with cream cheese frosting but if that isn't your thing then you can use buttercream or something. I will give you the quantities used but I'll be honest I tend to just put whatever in until it taste how I want it to, especially with the frosting.
Now I've named these cupcakes Oreo Surprise because the base of the cupcake is an Oreo biscuit which can't be seen until you bite into the bun!

 The front four are the Oreo Surprise cupcakes, the other buns are for Josh as he doesn't like Oreo's

What You'll Need:

Makes around 8-10
For the cupcakes: 110g butter/margarine
110g sugar
2 eggs
110g self raising flour
A drop of vanilla essence
Oreo's to place in bun cases

For the cream cheese frosting: 6 tablespoons of cream cheese 
75g butter
200g of icing sugar
A drop of vanilla essence
Crushed Oreo's

Method

1. Make a basic vanilla sponge mix (I won't bother explaining this as surely everyone knows how to do this)
2. Take your bun cases and place one Oreo in the bottom of each then pour the sponge mixture on top 
3. Place the buns in the oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 20-25 minutes
4. To make the cream cheese frosting cream together the butter and the cheese then add the icing sugar ( I just kept adding icing sugar until I got the taste I wanted I didn't really stick to the measurements). Once it's mixed together add the vanilla essence and the crushed Oreo's (just place some Oreo's in a food bag and crush them with a rolling pin) and combine it all.
5. Once the buns are cooked leave them to cool then spoon or pipe on the cream cheese frosting
6. That's it the Oreo Surprise cupcakes are done, remove from the casing and enjoy!

As you can see it's so simple to make these delicious little treats, the combination of the crunchy biscuit, light fluffy sponge and creamy topping is amazing and it takes no time and hardly any effort to make something that looks pretty good if I do say so myself!
