Recipe – Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cupcakes

And so another wet and grey week comes to an end. It’s been a good one but I’m sure I’m not alone in wishing for some sunshine! It took me over an hour to get home on Friday night as the town I drive through was busy putting up their flood defences as we brace ourselves for another wet weekend.

It’s not all bad though. When you can’t go outside, you have to work extra hard to find things to do inside and I can usually be found pottering away in the kitchen.

I decided to try out a new cake recipe, with the help of a few packets of Oreo cookies in the cake batter and the icing. These cupcakes are delicious and the crunch of the biscuits add another texture to make these even tastier!

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
