Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes are delicious, but these ones are extra special thanks to an Oreo biscuit hiding inside!
Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 12 cup muffin tray. Split Oreos in half and place half in each cupcake case, cream side up. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt in a large bowl, mix well and set aside.
Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Combine milk, eggs and vanilla paste in a bowl, mix well then gradually add to butter mixture, then add flour to mixture and mix until just combined with no lumps.
Divide mixture evenly between cupcake cases and bake for 25-30 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool fully before icing.
Prepare icing by combining butter and icing sugar in a mixer until smooth, approx 4-5 minutes. Add vanilla and a dash of milk to adjust consistency. Mix until smooth and transfer to a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe icing onto cupcakes and finish with oreo crumble before serving.
