Oreo Muffins by claremanson Oreo Muffins by claremanson
I was so determined to make these again. I mentioned in my previous upload of jam doughnut muffins that i had only made muffins once before, they were oreo muffins and was a complete failure.

So here we are, 1 1/2 years later, a lot more experienced with baking and making jam doughnut muffins. I had lots of batter so decided to half the mixture and use one half to attempt Oreo muffins again. This time i am a lot happier with how they turned out.

Recipe same as jam muffins but instead of jam i added some oreos.

RECIPE
Basic Recipe taken from the book 1 Mix, 50 Muffins which i got a few years back as a christmas present.

Makes 12
INGREDIENTS

MUFFINS
Oil or melted butter for greasing a muffin tin if you don't plan on using cases
280g/10oz plain white flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
115g/4oz caster sugar
2 medium eggs
200ml/7 fl oz milk
6 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
12-15 Oreos

METHOD
1. Preheat oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas Mark 6
2. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin or line with cases.
3. Sift together all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl then stir in the sugar.
4. Lightly beat eggs then beat in milk, oil and vanilla.
5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients then pour in the wet ingredients. Stir gently until just combined, do not over-mix.
6. Break up Oreos roughly into quarters, roll them in flour on a plate or shallow bowl to help the oreos stick to the batter so they wont sink to the bottom while baking.
7. bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until well risen, golden and firm to touch.
8. Leave muffins to cool on a wire rack.

Too sweet? I was considering going over the oreos with a rolling pin to make them much more fine.. :?

not sweet enough actually :giggle: the first muffins i ever made i used a rolling pin on oreos they came out terrible, the crushed oreos made the muffins taste too dry and lost flavour

They sound delicious, might give them a go. I made jam doughnut muffins ages ago and loved them, had trouble making the cinnamon stick to them though, lol!

I know this is completely unrelated to your delicious looking cupcakes, but I'm just now back home from my test which went fairly well though I don't guarantee anything related to the outcome, and I'm listening to the new COF album for the fist time, FINALY, and this album is SOOOOOOOO gonna go on my Halloween playlist :squee:

Tried that, but everything, even classical like mozart, would distract me. I study best with complete -ahum! as if that's possible with noisy neighbours and their kids and dog...- silence.

With concentration things; no distractions allowed. Though I love it while baking/sewing/cooking or whatever, and when knitting or crocheting -unless it's a complicated pattern or some new technique- I usually watch a movie or currently House.
With reading though, also for fun, I usually want quiet, unless it's raining and storming out =^.^=

I'm glad that you were determined to succeed and did! My baking failure has been a buche noel. My first attempt six years ago was a disaster and when I tried again two years later it looked awful (tasted good, but presentation is always key). I may try again this year (crosses fingers).

there is now only one thing left i think on my list of disasters that have been so bad it has put me off trying again and that is carrot cake. don't know if i ever will get around to trying it again though because i don't normally have cinnamon and nutmeg and things like that in the house as i hardly use them and seems a waste to just buy it for one baking session that may or may not work, if it wasn't for that i probably would.
It's good to go back and try and succeed where you have previously failed, gives me a greater satisfaction than then when achieving a new recipe i have never tried before.

Clare....whats the difference between vanilla extracts and flavouring?
I've tried both in my sponges, and it only seems to be the flavouring that tastes and smells....
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
extract is real vanilla, flavouring is all artificial. i tend to use flavouring though as is easier to find and less expensive.

ginas-cakes Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ahhhhh....so you would think that extracts would be the better of the two to use?
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
it should be, if you watch cooking shows, chefs are constantly saying to use extract and not the test tube stuff! they really have a huge dislike to it!

:iconginas-cakes:
ginas-cakes Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ooooo.....it must just be me then...I can't tell any difference. I'll have to give the extracts a go next time.
...do you use the same amount or less than the flavouring?
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i haven't used extract since i was at school. Maybe i should give it another go too! i don't mind paying that little bit extra now and again if it improves the taste but i can never really tell the difference either
