Ready In:
24 Cupcakes




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 24 muffin cups with baking cups.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and the butter until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract, then beat in the egg whites one at a time, making sure each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Working in 4 or 5 additions, alternately add the flour mixture and the milk to the sugar mixture. Keep the mixer on low speed while you do this. When just combined, stir in the crushed Oreos.
  • Spoon batter evenly into muffin tins, filling each about 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes at 350°F, until a toothpick comes out clean (a few chocolate cookie crumbs are fine, but not batter).
  • Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
  • Store in an airtight container if not serving the same day.
  • Note: If you only have a 12-cup muffin tin, the batter will not suffer from sitting around for a few minutes while the first batch bakes. Just be sure to let the pan cool completely before filling it up again.
  • Variation: To make plain vanilla cupcakes, simply omit the Oreos. You might end up with only about 18 cupcakes, but as long as you fill the tins about 2/3 full, the baking time will be the same.
  • Quick Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and beat, with an electric mixer, until frosting is creamy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Frost cupcakes with frosting using a butter knife or offset spatula. Add as much or as little frosting as desired. If making Oreo cupcakes, garnish with additional chunks of Oreo.

    These cupcakes came out awful. They were way too sweet and I added extra flour. They do not taste anything like Oreo and the picture is not of the actual cupcakes. Horrible simply horrible and I bake all the time and have used several recipes from this website and I basically have to throw the whole batch out.

    I made these with a chocolate box cake mix, an Oreo in the bottom of the cupcake paper and chopped up cookies and cream bars inside. Then I topped them with canned cookies and cream frosting. So pretty!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
