Raise your hand if you like Oreo.

Well, that's my sons favorite line these days. He is so much into Oreo that he supposedly became an Oreoholic!!!!....well that's the term he used to describe his sudden love for Oreos.



Now with an Oreoholic son at home...Oreos have suddenly become a necessity which resulted in these muffins topped with oreo streusel topping 

I made these muffins as a surprise for my self-proclaimed-oreoholic-son and the reward was big BEAR HUG and a bunch of kisses.

Now about these muffins; straight from the oven with its crunchy topping it was awesome!! (that's according to my kids). Nidhi, my daughter even took some to her school to share with her friends..........I found the recipe at the knead4speed.com. The topping had a crunchy and a bit of carmalized flavor (because of the sugar) and inside it was soft....the oreos have softened during baking....which was really good.!!!


Recipe source: The Knead4speed.com.
Yield: 20 muffins.
Ingredients:
All-purpose flour: 2 cups.
Baking powder: 2-3/4 tsp.
Granulated sugar: 1 cup.
Butter, softened: 1/2 cup/ 1stick/100 gms.
Eggs: 2 large.
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp.

Oreos, coarsely crushed: 10-12.


Streusel topping:
All-purpose flour: 2 tbsp.
Granulated sugar: 2 tbsp.

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 385 degrees F.  Grease or line muffin tin with liners.
  2. Prepare streusel first, stir together butter, flour, sugar, and finely crushed Oreos in a small bowl.  Mix with a spoon or your fingertips. Till it resembles breadcrumbs. Keep aside this to put atop batter.
  3. With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, stirring between additions.  Add vanilla.
  4. Sieve together flour and baking powder, add this into the cream all at once.  Mix on low speed for a few seconds, then add milk and continue mixing just until incorporated.  Fold in crushed oreos. 
  5. Divide batter between muffin tins, filling each 3/4 full.  Evenly sprinkle Oreo streusel atop batter.
  6. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until done.

How I made them:
1. Crush oreos with your hand.

2. Make the streusel first; in a bowl put in butter, sugar, crushed oreos, and flour and mix with a spoon or with your fingertips. This should resemble breadcrumb. Keep aside to sprinkle atop batter.

4. Add 2 eggs, one at a time and cream well.

5. Add 1 tsp vanilla essence and cream well. Seive together 2 cups of flour and 2 3/4 of baking powder and add this all at once in to the butter cream.

6. Mix on low speed for a few seconds, then add 1/2 cup milk and continue mixing until well incorporated.

7. Fold in 10 to 12 crushed oreos.

8. Go ahead and give it a mix.

9. Pour into muffin tray lined with paper cups, filling each 3/4 full.

10. Sprinkle the streusel mix atop batter.

11. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until done.

12. Just out of the oven!!!
