Ingredients

  • 2 cups 280 gr all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 240 ml whole milk (you can substitute with any plant milk you like)
  • 1 tablespoon 15 ml apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup 80 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup 200 gr white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons 45 ml vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 - 10 Oreos, break into small pieces (see notes)
  • Oreo buttercream (you can find this recipe in my cookbook, page 158)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350º F (180º C). Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  • Combine milk and vinegar in a small bowl in a measuring cup or bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat butter until creamy and pale on medium-high speed, about 2 - 3 minutes. Add the sugar and beat on high speed for 2 minutes until creamed and pale, scraping down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Then add oil and vanilla; continue beating to combine, about 2 minutes.
  • Turn the mixer to low and add the flour mixture in three batches, alternating with milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture; beat until just combined, about 30 – 45 seconds. Do not overmix. Gently and slowly fold in the chopped Oreos. The batter will be slightly thick.
  • Fill cupcake liners about two-thirds full.
  • Bake for 20 - 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool pan on wire racks for 5 minutes, then remove cupcakes from pan, place back on the rack, and cool to room temperature before frosting, about 1 hour.
  • Frost cooled cupcakes with Oreo buttercream (you can find this recipe in my cookbook, page 158).

Notes

 
STORE: Unfrosted cupcakes will keep well for 3 days at room temp; make sure they are covered. For longer storage, place them up to a week in the fridge or up to 1 month in the freezer. Frosted cupcakes must be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that they will lose some of their fluffiness once cooled.
 
FREEZE: to freeze cupcakes just follow these steps:
  • Let cupcakes cool COMPLETELY.
  • Wrap cupcakes tightly in plastic wrap.
  • Place individually wrapped cupcakes in a plastic double zipper quart freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 month. 
 
To defrost, unwrap cupcakes and bring them to room temperature—Frost to your liking.
 
OREOS: When breaking the Oreos for your cake batter, don’t crush them too small, or they’ll turn your batter gray. I recommend breaking them by hand to keep from crushing them too much.
OREO CAKE: This recipe was specifically developed for cupcake tins. If you are looking to make an Oreo cake, please see my perfect Eggless Oreo Cake recipe in my cookbook (page 56).
