Oreo Buttercake

Alot of bakers tried the oreo yogurt cake and raved about it but I personally prefer to buttercake version of it. I do not have much luck baking with yogurt. The bakes usually turned out dense and heavy... not like what everyone described their cakes to be. So I'm better off doing buttercakes... nevermind the amt of butter or sugar or wadeva. :P

I bought a pack of very cute polka dots PINK muffin cups when I went to replenish my baking supplies lately. And this is just so perfect with the oreo cakes. However, I'm too greedy when filling in the batter... everything started to overflow once it started to bake in the oven... oh well...
Here's the recipe....
What you need
  • 200gm butter
  • 160gm sugar (original recipe asked for 200gm)
  • 200gm self-raising flour
  • 4eggs
  • 1tbsp hot water
  • 1tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15pcs of oreos (broken into small pieces) (original recipe asked for 10pcs only)
What to do
  • Preheat oven to 175C. Sift flour and set aside.
  • Dissolve instant coffee in hot water. Mix in vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time.
  • Pour in liquid coffee and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Pour in sifted flour in 3 equal parts... mixer on low speed. Mix till everything is well combined.
  • Scoop batter to fill 1/3 of muffin cup, drop in some oreos... then top with some more batter, till cup is 3/4 full. (Do not be greedy, like me, the batter will overflow!). To finish off, place half an oreo (or 1/4 of an oreo... depends on how much of an oreo fan u are) onto the top of the batter.
  • Send muffin cups to the oven, bake for abt 30mins or till skewer comes out clean.
