Got stale Oreos in your pantry and no milk? Make cupcakes! This is a simple recipe that can be prepared in less than an hour but it’ll look like you slaved away in the kitchen for the whole day:
Ingredients (makes 12 large cupcakes):
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
100g Reese’s peanut butter chips
8 Oreo cookies (remove fillings, coarsely chopped)
1 egg, lightly beaten
60 ml vegetable oil
125g granulated sugar
1/2 vanilla extract
*helpful tip is to save the fillings to use as icing, you can melt the fillings on the stove top as the cupcakes are baking
1.) Pre-heat oven to 350F
2.) Sieve together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Add peanut butter chips, chopped Oreo cookies and mix with a spatula. Make a well in the center
3.) Place egg, oil, buttermilk and sugar in another bowl. Mix (with a manual whisk) until thoroughly combined.
4.) Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. With the spatula, gently fold all the ingredients to form a wet batter. Just mix until the flour is incorporated into the batter. DO NOT over mix. The batter will appear lumpy.
5.) Spoon batter into paper muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes until muffins turn golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
