Vegan Chocolate & Oreo Cupcakes!

Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy-free! 
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with a Hidden Oreo and Vanilla Oreo Frosting!

These definitely look and taste like the Oreo Cupcakes you can buy at Selfridges!
I have decided to Make these Chocolate & Oreo Cupcakes as i recently found out..

Oreos are a Wafer Biscuit with a Sweet cream filling centre if you didn't know that already! They are simply Delicious!
These Cupcakes are extra Special as they have a hidden Oreo in the Cake part...
I made these for my Grandpa as its his Birthday this week, so thank you Grandpa for the Inspiration <3

-1 Pack of Original Oreo's
-200grams of Plain Flour ( i used Gluten-free)
-200grams of Caster Sugar
-4 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
-1/2 a Teaspoons of Salt
-1 Teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
-4 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
-1 1/2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
-250ml of Filtered Water

For the Frosting-
-1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
-1 1/2 Tablespoons of Dairy-free Milk ( I used Unsweetened Almond Milk)
-300-400grams of Icing Sugar( just keep adding it to the mixture until it resembles a light fluffy texture)
-Crushed Oreos ( I Used about 6 Oreos)

Lets get Baking.....

Step 1- Get out your Utensils and Ingredients and Pre-heat your Oven to 180 Degrees. 

Step 2- Weigh out your Ingredients and in a Large mixing bowl, Sieve in the Flour, Caster Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Salt and Bicarbonate of Soda. Mix up until smooth.

Step 3- Pour in the the Oil, Vanilla Extract and Water, mix until a dark brown Liquidy Texture. 

Step 4- Line a Cupcake tin with Cases ( i used Muffin cases) and in each Cupcake Case, drop in 1 Oreo, it just makes it more exiting.

Step 5- Start to cover the Oreos with the Mixture, and pour in up to half of the Case.

Step 6- When all of the Cases are filled, pop the Tray in the Oven for 20-25 Minutes. Make sure you check them after 20-25 minutes with a Knife or Skewer, stick the Knife or Skewer into the Cake, it should come out clean, if it doesn't they need a bit more time to cook.

While the Cakes are in the oven its time to make the Oreo Frosting! 

Step 1- In a Large(ish) mixing bowl, combine the Vanilla Extract, Milk and Icing Sugar. When fully combined and Smooth, throw in the Crushed Oreos! 

To Crush the Oreos- You can either Blend them up in a Food Blender or processor, or you can do what i did, put come Oreos in a Small Food Bag, wrap it up in a Tea Towl and bash them with a Rolling Pin :) The smell of Bended Oreos is soooo good!

When the Forsting is thick, and looks a Cookies & cream, pop it in the Fridge to harden while you wait for the Cupcakes.

Step 7- Get the Cupcakes out of the oven, they should be springy to the touch!
Leave them to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before decorating with the Frosting or the Frosting will melt. 

You can use a Piping bag, but i like the Rustic look and just dolloped it on and spread it out until it looked good and moorish!!

Were finished! :)

These cupcakes are very rich, they would be great served with some Dairy-free Icecream!

don't mind me....ill just tuck into mine now......... :)
