Oreo Cupcakes

Did you know there are rules about making cupcakes? The first rule is you should share cupcakes if you make them. If you don't want to share, then you should make a cake and tell everyone that you licked the top. It usually will deter some from eating your cake. The second rule is if you decide to make extra sweet frosting then the cupcake shouldn't be to sweet. The third rule is do not over bake the cupcakes as my oldest daughter learned. I guess most people do not like crispy or dry cupcakes. If your cupcakes are too crispy or dry cupcakes, then do not follow the first rule.

Oreo Cupcakes 1 cup salted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 egg whites 
1 Tbsp vanilla extract 
3 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
3/4 cup crushed Oreo

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  4. Add the egg whites and vanilla. Combine until just incorporated. 
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  6. Slowly, add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture. 
  7. Add 1/2 cup milk to the butter mixture.
  8. Add the remaining flour mixture to the bowl.
  9. Add the remaining milk to the butter mixture. Mix until combined.
  10. Fold in the crushed Oreo cookies.
  11. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 full with the batter.
  12. Cook the cupcakes for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Did you already know...........
-When baking, the ingredients need to be measured properly.
-When measuring flour, spoon it into the measuring cup and level off. Do not pack down.
-When cooking with powdered sugar, always sift if not there will be lumps in your frosting.
