going Oreo the green way

oreos going green? urmmm, that will never happen i think!

however…..

my take on this simple treat here is…having Oreo cookies but yet eating them gleefully without the GUILT factor. the factor that stop most of us who have turned the age of being diet conscious, figure conscious and vanity – our main *devil. if most of us weren’t so vain in most times…eating an Oreo anytime would not have been a problem.

so what did i do to make Oreo less sinful? Heee….

Honey Green Tea Oreo cupcake

8oz unsalted butter, softened
5 1/2 oz castor sugar or half brown sugar
3 large eggs
2 tbsp honey
280ml milk (more milk than usual cuz’ wholewheat absorbs moisture..)
8 oz all purpose flour, sifted
2 oz wholemeal wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp green tea powder
8 Oreo cookies, crushed (including its centers)

Do the creaming method for cake. Mix in the crushed Oreos, last.
Makes 24 medium cupcakes.

what i like about it? You get the best of both worlds…..
Oh do take a close look at the mug and saucers…I love them so much. It has branch-like handles!

for this post, i am thanking Fanny from Foodbeam as she is the hostess for September’s Sugar High Friday event – Cupcakes The Final Chapter, created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess. This fantastic event will be a joint effort to debunk the myth that cupcakes is always sweet, sinful, full of cream and having a tasteless interior (cake). We beg to differ…..join us in the march! 😉
