Oreo Cupcake Recipe

February 15, 2012
Do you love Oreos?  I have a cupcake recipe with a surprise Oreo inside for you to try!  These cupcakes are perfect for a birthday party or any type of party.  You can create different flavor options by just changing the type of Oreo you buy.  So easy! 
I had originally found this recipe on Pinterest  when I was looking at all types of Oreo cupcake recipe options and decided to give it a shot. 
My family ended up really enjoying it and I have made it a couple times since originally trying it.  They enjoyed this new way of using Oreo’s and I am excited to try new Oreo cupcake recipes in the different flavors. 
If you don’t have time to put together the recipe as I have listed, you could easily use a white cake mix and just mix Oreo’s into the batter.  Use a Vanilla canned frosting a sprinkle Oreo’s on top. 

Making Oreo Cupcake Recipes


  • ~ 2 1/4 cups flour
  • ~ 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ~ 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ~ 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • ~ 1 cup milk
  • ~ 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • ~ 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • ~ 3 egg whites
  • ~ 1 1/2 cups crushed Oreos + more for decorating cupcakes
  • ~ 1 16oz. container of vanilla frosting


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 24 muffin cups pan with liners.
2. Combine flour, baking powder & salt in large bowl; stir in sugar. Add milk, butter & vanilla; beat with electric mixer at low speed for 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg whites: beat 2 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 cup of crushed Oreo cookies. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling two-thirds full, you can put half an Oreo in the bottom of the cupcake liner first for a little extra fun. 
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool for 10 min.
4. Frost cupcakes & decorate with additional crushed Oreos.

    Your cupcakes are the best ones I’ve tried!
    I always bake them whenever we have a gathering/parties at home. (I’ve been using your recipe since last year)
    I noticed you changed some parts of the recipe.
    Can you please post the recipe for the vanilla frosting again? 🙂

    Hello! I found these on pinterest, and usually there are comments that it looks great, but no comments on the taste! So, I decided to make these since we had extra oreos on hand. These did not turn out good. We ended up throwing it all out. :o/ I did not put the topping on them though, so this review is without the frosting.

    • Chrissy Taylor

      Oh no. I actually liked the cake part best because im not a big frosting person. They are rich though. Sorry you didnt like them.

  • Natalie

    Those look so good! I'm obsessed Oreos. I made this KrystaSteen.com recently and it was sooo good. No better combo than cream cheese, Cool Whip and Oreos!

    Thanks for the recipe 🙂
