Oreo Cupcakes

These chocolate cupcakes are a big hit with kids and grown ups alike. Baked with half an Oreo in the bottom of the cupcake case and decorated with another miniature version on top, these are perfect for fans of the popular cookie. The cream cheese frosting is made a bit more special by stirring through some smashed up Oreo crumbs.

I developed this recipe, along with five more, for the Good Food Channel website. The recipes were then baked by my good friend Katie of Feeding Boys and a Firefighter, for a photo shoot that took place in her kitchen. I went along to watch for a while, and it was great fun seeing all the action. I am very excited to see my recipes on the web site, and will be posting more of Sharron's lovely photos in due course.
