Easy Homemade Crushed Oreo Cupcakes

Here’s another delicious cupcake recipe with fool-proof ingredients and directions.  Easy Homemade Crushed Oreo Cupcakes has been tested 3 times for accuracy.  Just follow the instructions.  If you are new to baking, I wouldn’t put all my eggs in one basket.  Meaning…..bake some cupcakes first from a cake mix.  Frost with instant frosting to get the hang of it.  Once you feel comfortable then start baking cupcakes from scratch.

My grandmother baked all her cakes from scratch.  No measuring.  She just dumped it into a bowl.  Whaala!  She always amazed me.  I do the same thing.  I get a recipe and tweak it to my taste.  They say don’t eat raw batter.  Well, that’s my secret.  If the batter tastes good then the cake is gonna taste good (not a recommendation).

Some individuals have made these cupcakes and all the crushed cupcakes end up at the bottom.  So to prevent it from happening, just coat the Oreo chunks in a little bit of flour.  The flour will help keep them from sinking to the bottom.

The key to having smooth, creamy buttercream frosting is room temperature.  I usually leave my butter, eggs, and cream cheese out on the counter overnight.  The very next morning I start my baking.  If you don’t wait for the ingredients to get to room temperature, then you will have a difficult time blending the butter, milk and vanilla.  One young lady did not wait.  The ingredients all remained separate.  Bless her heart.  She ended up straining the butter then blending sugar while gradually adding milk.  It’s very important to wait.  Be sure to cream the butter first then add milk and vanilla.
