This recipe for Cookies and Cream Cupcakes is from Food and Wine. The ratio of fat/sugar/flour/chocolate is similar to that of the cupcakes I made a few days ago, but this version is much better. The cakes are a little bit softer and tighter crumbed. And best of all, this recipe was also stir and bake – no creaming required. I’m going to add a Top 5 cupcake list to my favorites page and this recipe will go on it.
As for the icing, it was fine, but I liked the sour cream icing that went with the High Top Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes a little better. The Oreos were cool looking, though.
Also, I followed F&W’s directions, but baked for 20 minutes at 375 and added a handful of chocolate chips.
Thanks Layla! Sounds like a great book.

I liked these best with the sour cream frosting too, but it does make a lot. Maybe I’ll add a note that says for 12 cupcakes, a half batch will work. I actuall got the recipe from Oprah.com and they used double what I posted.
Your website looks great. I made these cupcakes and they are fantastic, but instead of the oreo frosting – I used the sour cream frosting that you posted a couple days earlier. Really great frosting. However, it makes a lot. Wondering how long it will last in the fridge? Can you freeze frosting???
lovin’ the new look!! and that cupcake looks so yummy 🙂
oh just marvellous!
These sound delicious!!!
OMG, I wish I could eat that through the screen. I wish I had that kind of baking talent.
ohhh someone has a new look and I love it.
I haven’t been around lately, but I’m back.
Oh everyone is getting their own new look for their website/blog, I must be next huh?
Well, I love these mainly because of the fluffy frosting.
