Here we are already, I’m sharing the last recipe of 2016 🙂 can’t believe how fast this year has gone by!
It’s been a great baking year for me 😃 After years and years of searching for my ultimate recipes, trying and tweaking, having loads of kitchen failures, I’m super happy to have found my favourite cupcakes, like these and these, breads, rolls, cookies and brownies! 😉 this one here is using my favourite buttery, yellow vanilla cupcake recipe.
I topped it with a deliciously creamy and smooth milk chocolate frosting and crushed Oreos 😉 you can also crush up some Oreos and fold some into the batter right before baking 😉
These cupcakes use the reverse creaming method which is my favourite technique for cakes and cupcakes. You can frost these cuppies with any frosting of your choice, it’s so versatile I love it!
This is my go to chocolate frosting recipe, I use it on pretty much everything. You can add less or more cocoa powder to it until you get your desired chocolatey-ness 😉
Buttery, vanilla-y and chocolate-y with a crunch of Oreos 😍 Delicious! 😋
