    Oreo Cupcakes

    These party-perfect Oreo Cupcakes belong at any happy occasion! The cakes are made with rich, black cocoa powder and they’re topped with the best Cookies and Cream buttercream, ever!

    As the baker and recipe blogger of the family, I often get asked questions like “Where’s the Oreo cupcake recipe on your blog, I couldn’t find it.” Which makes me panic a little, and wonder why on earth I don’t already have an Oreo cupcake recipe published, after 14 years of blogging. Sure, I have plenty of other Oreo-themed recipes, but this was an obvious oversight. I’m correcting it today.

    Black cocoa batter.
    This cake recipe starts out as most batters do. First, cream the butter and sugar together in large mixing bowl. Add in an egg, vanilla, and buttermilk. Blend together until smooth.
    Next, whisk the dry ingredients together. Dark cocoa from the grocery store will work just fine and will taste fantastic. But for authentic Oreo flavor, opt for black cocoa. Which can be purchased online. I used this black dutched cocoa powder. It imparts true Oreo cookie flavor.

    Get the wet and dry ingredients together in the same bowl and mix it all up. Beat until the batter is smooth and consistent matte black. Now it’s time to bake!

    Now, this is important – fill the cupcake papers no more than 1/2 full. This batter rises quite a bit, and has a super moist and delicate crumb. These won’t crown much on top. And the only way to check for doneness is with a toothpick inserted in the center of a cake. It should come out clean, or with a few small crumbs clinging to it.
    Divide Oreo cookie shells from their cream centers.

    Cookies and Cream buttercream.
    This buttercream is SOOOO creamy and delicious! I am its biggest fan. The Oreo cream centers are incorporated with the creamed butter and powdered sugar mixture. Then, finely pulverized Oreo cookie shells are mixed in. Use a food processor to get the cookies ground to fine consistency. If you’re like me, you hate dragging out a bulky food processor. But it’s worth it – I promise!

    A learning moment.
    I SO wanted to use these tall cupcake cups for baking the batter, but their shape doesn’t work well with chocolate cake batter. Their tall popover profile encourages the batter to bubble up in the centers and overflow. After several attempts (and oven scrubs) I was forced to resort to standard size liners. Which worked perfectly. However, the tall papers do make cute cupcake holders, so they weren’t a complete loss. Using them made the cakes sturdier, and easier to transport and arrange very moist chocolate cupcakes.

    Transfer the buttercream to a piping bag with a large open star tip. See all of those tiny chocolate flecks? They provide so much Oreo flavor! And again, to drive the point home further – it’s important to grind those cookies fine. Or else they’ll clog the piping tip.

    Garnish each cupcake with a whole Oreo cookie placed to one side of the frosting swirl. Then sprinkle with a little more crushed Oreo cookies.
    Oreo Cupcakes

    The interiors are so soft and moist – and dark! I had a hard time getting a good image of the interior because the cakes are so intensely dark chocolate. Oh well. I tried!
    This is a wonderful sweet thing for any happy occasion, such as birthdays, holidays – or just as an ending to Sunday dinner. Enjoy!

    Oreo Cupcakes

    Here’s a dessert for all occasions! Oreo cupcakes are made of tender sour cream dark chocolate cake and topped with a tall swirl of cookies and cream frosting. Bake these cupcakes in a standard size cupcake pan and fill them only half full of batter. These cakes will rise quite a bit in the oven but won’t dome in the centers. Their moist texture gives them a level top. Check for doneness using a toothpick tester inserted in their centers. The frosting recipe provides enough for a tall triple swirl of buttercream. The recipe can be halved for a more modest amount of frosting.

    Oat and Stout Skillet Brownie

    Oat and Stout Skillet Brownie is a hearty, rich dessert served warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. Use your favorite stout in this recipe!

    After two long months of cold, rain, and more rain, the March sky has cracked open to grace us with a little sunshine. The light falls differently in our front room, and our four little dogs rearrange themselves on the floor and furniture to take advantage of every patch of sunlight. Even they know that spring is on its way. I’m so ready for outdoor activities, like planting my veggie garden. But it’s still too chilly for that. So I’ve contented myself in the kitchen, testing some cozy recipes – skillet brownie recipes in particular.
    This Oat and Stout Skillet Brownie is wonderfully rich and hearty, and best served warm with vanilla ice cream. And it’s an easy fix! Because making a skillet brownie is just as easy as making a pan of brownies. You just need a heat-proof skillet. Cast iron is preferred, but not a necessity.

    The best beer for brownies.
    Light lagers and ales are fine for cakes, but rich chocolate brownies need a much bolder beer. Dark stouts are brewed with dark roasted malt, and have flavors that stand out against the richness of semisweet chocolate. Here I’m using milk stout, which is sweeter than most other dark stout beers. However, you can use your favorite stout in this recipe. Chocolate stout is a good choice, for obvious reasons!

    Make a reduction.
    Boil the beer and 1 cup of butter together for 10 minutes. During this time it will reduce slightly. This results in condensed beer flavor and gives the butter some toasty notes, too!

    Pour the reduced beer mixture over chopped semisweet chocolate. Let it stand for a few minutes, then whisk it together until smooth and glossy. Let it cool about five minutes.

    Next, mix up some sugar, brown sugar and eggs. Then pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Mix until smooth.

    Sift in cocoa powder, flour, and pour in some old-fashioned oats. Mix all of that together until just combined.

    Pour the batter into a greased 9 1/2-inch or 10-inch cast iron skillet and bake for 25-30 minutes.

    Serve this brownie warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream. The dark, roasty notes of the stout give the brownie new depth of flavor. The oats make it substantial. It’s a lovely shareable dessert after a St. Patrick’s Day feast, if that is on your calendar.

    Quick skillet-toasted oats makes a fine topping, and completely optional. But it gives the brownie another layer of texture and flavor. An easier garnish is a sprinkle of semisweet chips. They melt and become gooey on top of the warm brownie – highly recommend!

    NotesFor the toasted oats, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet. Add 1/2 cup old fashioned oats. Toast over medium-high heat until golden brown. Let cool before using as a brownie topping.
    This brownie is cake-like. If you prefer your brownies fudgy and moist in the center, you can under bake it slightly to an internal temperature of 180°F. It is safe to eat but has a gooey interior. Measure the temperature with a probe thermometer for accurate results.
    This brownie is best served warm with vanilla ice cream. Leftovers can be heated up in the microwave at 100% power in 30 second increments.

    TikTok Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake

    Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake is a gooey combination of cinnamon rolls and coffee cake. Simple store bought ingredients create this over the top viral breakfast cake!
    If you like this kind of recipe make sure to try my Easy Cinnamon Roll Cake too!

    Super Easy Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake Recipe!
    I have TONS of homemade desserts on my website…but today isn’t “from scratch”. This is a pure dump and go recipe that magically works even though it doesn’t seem like it will. In fact, this is the type of recipe that was MADE for TikTok. Of course, I have a video over there making this Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake that you should definitely check out too. I first saw a version of this on and I knew I had to throw my spin on it. I have so many dump cake recipes on my site already, and of course a pretty epic cinnamon roll recipe as well, so I knew this was one that I had to recreate for my readers. And omg it is so freaking delicious. Like out.of.control. It is by no means diet food, but it’s worth every last calorie. 

    Why You Will Love This TikTok Recipe
    So many of us have tried a recipe from the popular app and had it turn out…well…less than perfect.. But this recipe works. It’s kind of magic. Also I hope you know I wouldn’t share a recipe on TikTok or here on my website that hasn’t been tested and is also delicious! And not only is this cinnamon roll dump cake easy to make, but it also has a warm, comforting flavor that’s perfect for any occasion. The cinnamon and brown sugar combines with the canned ready-made cream cheese frosting to create a gooey, caramelized layer as the cake bakes, while the pecans add a satisfying crunch. And with the added convenience of using canned cinnamon rolls, and all store-bought items you can have this dessert ready to go in just a few minutes.

    There is nothing from scratch about this recipe…which is exactly the point. Here’s what you need:

    2 cans cinnamon rolls. You’re going to want to get the “Grands” style…you know the ones, that you can unroll and come in a can of 5. You will also need the icing, so set that aside!
    1 can of frosting. You can really use any flavor, but cream cheese frosting or just vanilla is really the best in this recipe.
    Chopped Pecans. You can even omit the nuts in this if you prefer, but we like the little crunch they add! You could even sub in walnuts if you don’t have pecans on-hand.
    Coffee Cake Mix. Or sometimes I find it called “Cinnamon Swirl” cake. The brand doesn’t matter, just get the 21 ounce box. I use the Krusteaz brand, but whatever brand you have is fine. Mine comes with a cake mix and also a separate pouch of cinnamon sugar mix. I use both!
    Butter! Just slice it into thin pats and place it all over the top of the cake mix.

    How Do You Make Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake?
    The beauty of this recipe is how easy it is. You literally dump everything into a 9×13 and bake!

    Preheat your oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside. 
    Open your cinnamon rolls and reserve the can of icing in the packages. Using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut the cinnamon rolls into 1- inch pieces and place in a single layer into the prepared pan.
    Remove the lid and foil seal on the frosting. Microwave it for 30 seconds to loosen it up. Stir until smooth and pour it all over the cut cinnamon rolls in the pan.
    Sprinkle the chopped pecans on top of the frosting layer. 
    Open the box of cake mix and sprinkle the dry mix on top of the nut layer evenly. (If your cake mix comes with a separate pouch of cinnamon sugar mix, just sprinkle that on top too.
    Slice the butter evenly and place the butter pats on top of the dry cake mix. 
    Bake for 40 – 45 minutes until the center is set and the top is golden brown.
    Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes and then microwave the reserved cinnamon roll icing for 15 seconds and stir to make it pourable. Drizzle the icing all over the top.
    Serve warm!

    Tips For Baking Success
    This is a very easy recipe, with a very high success rate. Might I even say, impossible to mess up like most dump cakes, which is great for beginners or anyone who wants a quick and delicious recipe. The only thing you could really do wrong here is over or underbake. Just ensure the center is set, so you don’t end up with doughy cinnamon rolls.
    Variations For Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake
    This recipe is completely open for adaptations. Here are a few ideas:

    Add in some chopped apples when you add the nuts to create an Apple Cinnamon Roll Dump Cake. I would use 1 – 2 peeled and diced Granny Smith apples, depending on how many apples you would like! I haven’t tried it yet, but I imagine apple pie filling would work too. The cake would be a little more like a cobbler with the added moisture, but it would still be delicious. 
    A lot of people like raisins in their cinnamon rolls, so feel free to add in raisins when you sprinkle on the nuts.
    You could honestly use any type of cake mix or any flavor frosting in this recipe and it will create a whole new flavor profile. Try a spice cake mix and some pumpkin pie spice to give it a real fall vibe. Get creative!

    Neapolitan Cake

    Now, this is a party cake! Strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate cake batters are marbled together in this four layer, ice cream parlor-inspired, Neapolitan Cake. Topped with mini ice cream cones, it makes a fun birthday cake for kids of all ages.

    When the weather is dreary for many days in a row (and it has been), baking up something fun is a real spirit-lifter! This Neapolitan Cake is an example of that. It’s an infusion of bright color and rich flavor, inspired by Neapolitan ice cream. Marbled with strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate cake batters, it’s covered in silky vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. The strawberry ganache drip is creamy and colorful. And for an extra measure of happiness? Top the cake with Neapolitan buttercream-filled mini ice cream cones.

    Mixing the batters.
    I began this cake with the classic WASC batter (white almond sour cream cake) created by Rebecca Sutterby. I’m not often a box-mix baker, but this recipe uses it as an ingredient. I love how moist this cake is, and I’m not the only one. It’s my mom’s favorite cake! The pale batter takes on color and flavor beautifully. It’s just the perfect formula for this tri-color/flavor recipe.
    After mixing up the base batter, divide it evenly into three bowls. Tint one batter with a few drops of pink food color, and mix in a tablespoon of McCormick strawberry extract. To another bowl, add 1/4 cup of dark cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir well until a deep, chocolaty batter is formed. Leave the last batter bowl plain vanilla. Spoon the batters alternately into four 6-inch round cake pans (or pipe them in, as I did – see the video for action). Use a butter knife to swirl the batters together in the pans.

    Bake the cakes until they are well risen and puffed in the centers. They should spring back when pressed in their middles. Cool the cakes, then level them with a serrated knife or cake leveler.

    Swiss meringue buttercream and pink ganache drip.
    Fill and frost the cake with fluffy Swiss meringue buttercream. (You’ll find a short video tutorial for making it in this previous post). Smooth the buttercream with an offset spatula or bench scraper to even the exterior. Save the leftover buttercream for a future step.

    Make a strawberry ganache drip using heavy cream, pink candy melts, and a few white candy melts mixed in. Adding the white candy creates a more opaque pink color. Stir in a few drops of strawberry candy flavoring oil and pour it over the frosted (chilled) cake.

    Create a Neapolitan swirl.
    Remember that leftover buttercream? Divide it into three portions; tint one portion pink with food color, and add strawberry extract. To another portion stir in 1/4 cup melted semisweet chocolate chips. Leave the third portion plain. Place the frostings side-by-side on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll them up together. Snip one end of the rolled up plastic wrap (see video for this action).

    Drop the frosting roll, snipped-end-first into a piping bag fitted with a large open star decorator piping tip. Pipe a swirl or two on a scrap sheet of parchment until all three colors of the frosting start to show. Then, pipe a swirls of frosting into mini ice cream cones. Speaking of…

    Mellow Cones.
    Mini ice cream cones are available at most grocery stores, but I used something a little different. Mellow Cones are little jelly filled marshmallow cones that come in different colors. I scooped out the marshmallow part and filled the pretty pink and yellow cones with Neapolitan swirl buttercream. And you can too! Purchase Mellow Cones online, or if you’re lucky you can find them in the candy aisle at your local grocery store.

    Didn’t they turn out cute!? The colors of the Neapolitan swirl buttercream will deepen as it sets, especially the chocolate portion.

    Arrange the cones on top of the cake so that the pointed ends meet in the middle.

    Slice the cake to reveal that gorgeous Neapolitan-marbled batter. It’s such a delicious, moist, and deceptively light cake. Each flavor is distinct, and the marbling ensures you get a taste of it all in one bite!
    It makes a wonderful birthday cake, and I especially love how nostalgic it tastes. It’s sure to be a year-round favorite.

    Say hello to tasty and cute! This Neapolitan Cake has strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate cake batters swirled together for an ice cream parlor-themed treat. I used four 6-inch round cake pans, but three 8-inch pans could be used instead. The cake batter recipe is adapted from Rebecca Sutterby’s White Almond Sour Cream Cake, which uses a box of white cake mix as an ingredient. Unlike her recipe, I use no cooking oil in my version. The texture is still moist and soft with a slightly sturdier crumb. You can use any brand boxed cake mix you prefer.The ice cream decors pictured are made with the multicolor cones from Mellow Cones candies. I removed the marshmallow candy topping and piped in a Neapolitan buttercream swirl (see blog post for shopping link). If you can’t find Mellow Cones, use miniature ice cream cones, which can be found at most US grocery stores next to the ice cream toppings.

    Instructions Marbled Neapolitan cake layersPreheat oven to 350F. Coat four 6-inch round cake pans with flour-based baking spray (or grease and flour pans).Whisk together the first 4 ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer. In a four-cup measure with a pour spout, whisk together the sour cream, water, eggs and vanilla extract. With the mixer running on low speed, gradually pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Scrape the bowl down and mix again. Divide the cake evenly between 3 bowls.To the first bowl, add the strawberry extract and pink food color; mix well.To the second bowl, stir in the dark cocoa powder and water. Mix until the chocolate is incorporated and the color is consistent with no white streaks remaining.Leave the third bowl untinted.Place dollops of each flavor of cake batter alternately into each prepared cake pan (or pipe them in as I did, see video for action). Use a butter knife or another blunt kitchen tool to swirl the batters together.Bake for 25- 30 minutes, or until the cake springs back in the center when pressed. Turn the cakes out and cool completely on a wire rack. Level the cakes using a serrated knife or cake leveler.Swiss meringue buttercreamPlace a saucepan filled 1/3 full of water over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.In a large stainless-steel bowl, combine the egg whites, sugar, and salt. Set the bowl over the simmering water and cook while whisking intermittently. Cook until the mixture is hot (110°F) and you can no longer feel sugar granules when the mixture is rubbed between your finger and thumb. Transfer the hot mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on high speed for 10 minutes or until a thick, shiny meringue forms that holds stiff peaks. The bowl should feel cool to the touch. If it doesn’t, refrigerate the meringue in the bowl for 10 minutes. Return the bowl to the mixer and swap the whisk attachment for the paddle attachment.Beat the room temperature butter into the meringue one cube at a time on medium-low speed, waiting to add the next cube when the previous cube disappears. The batter will deflate with the butter addition, and may even look curdled (if the butter was the slightest bit cold this happens), but this is normal. When all of the butter is added, beat the mixture on high speed until light in color and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract.Remove 1 cup of buttercream to a bowl and cover; reserve for later.Place a cake layer on a cake board or server. Fill with a thin layer of buttercream. Repeat steps with remaining cake layers. Coat the sides of the cake with an even layer of buttercream. Use a bench scraper or cake smoother to even the surface and smooth the top. Chill the cake until firm, about 20 minutes.Divide the reserved 1 cup of icing between 3 small bowls (1/3 cup each bowl).To the first bowl, add the pink food color and strawberry extract. Mix well to combine.To the second bowl, add the melted chocolate chips and stir well. Leave the third bowl plain.Place a sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface. Place a line of strawberry buttercream on the plastic in an approximate 6-inch line. Place a line of chocolate frosting next to the strawberry so that it touches. Place the vanilla frosting next to the chocolate in the same way. Roll the frosting up into a tube shape (see video for action) and twist the ends. Snip one end of the tube and place it cut-side-first into a piping bag fitted with a large open star decorator tip.On a piece of scrap parchment paper, or a paper towel, pipe 2-3 small swirls of frosting until all three colors begin to extrude from the piping tip.Mini ice cream decorsStand the miniature ice cream cones upright in small shot glasses.Pipe swirls of the Neapolitan frosting into the miniature ice cream cones; top each with white nonpareils. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.Strawberry ganache dripPlace the pink and white melting wafers in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour in the heavy cream. Heat the mixture for 1 minute at 100% power. Let the mixture stand 1 minute then whisk together. Let cool until barely warm but still pourable, about 7 minutes.Remove the chilled cake from the refrigerator and spoon the strawberry ganache drip over the top of the cake. You may not have to use all of the ganache, depending on how heavy a drip you desire (I used about 3/4 of the mixture).Decorate!Place the ice cream cones on top of the ganached cake with the pointed ends meeting in the center of the cake. Toss pink sprinkles and white nonpareils onto the sides and top of the cake. Refrigerate the cake until 1-2 hours before serving. Allow cake to come to room temperature before serving for the best flavor and texture.
    NotesCandy flavoring oil must be used to flavor the pink ganache drip. The oil-based flavor incorporates well with the fat in the candy wafers. Using regular strawberry extract will cause the mixture to seize.
    This cake will serve 8 people tall slices, or 16 people double-layer slices. To serve 16 people, slice the cake into 8 wedges, then divide each piece in two.
