  • Serves

    1 cup flour
    1 cup Chelsea White Sugar
    2 eggs
    100g melted butter
    2 tsp baking powder (heaped)
    3 Tbsp cocoa powder (heaped)
    ½ cup milk
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Buttercream Icing:
    50g cream cheese
    100g butter (soft)
    2 cups Chelsea Icing Sugar
    1-2 Tbsp milk or water
    Vanilla extract (optional)

    Cookies and Cream Cheese Filling:
    100g cream cheese
    5 Oreo biscuits

    White Chocolate and Raspberry Filling
    100g white chocolate melts
    2 Tbsp cream
    ½ tsp raspberry powder


    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
    Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon evenly into prepared cupcake tins until approximately two-thirds full.
    Bake 12 -15mins or until they spring back when touched lightly or a skewer comes out cleanly. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

    Buttercream Icing:
    Beat cream cheese and butter together until well combined. Add icing sugar and beat well. If the icing is too thick and stiff add milk or water a tablespoon at a time to adjust the consistency (make sure you beat well between each addition as it won’t take much for the icing to get thin). Add colour as desired.
    Vanilla Buttercream: Beat ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract into the icing (as above).

    Filling Cupcakes:
    Take a cupcake and using a small circle cutter, push into the centre of the cupcake (don’t push too deep). Remove cutter and take centre out of cake. Spoon a teaspoon of the filling into the cake and pipe buttercream icing over the top to decorate.
    Sarah’s Cookies and Cream Cheese Filling: Beat cream cheese in a bowl to soften. Cut up Oreos into chunks then mix into cream cheese.
    White Chocolate and Raspberry Filling: Melt white chocolate, mix cream and raspberry powder into white chocolate, mix well.
