Upside down Oreo muffins

My sister and I would always try out new recipes. She was the baker and I was the cook. When she moved onto her own , we rarely got time to do these things together and now that she’s in China, there’s no way lol.

None the less, of late I’ve recently taken some time out to try out new baking recipes and well it’s going good, if I may say so myself! 

Can I just say, that the recipes I try and will share are for ameteur, normal folk like myself, who have the basic of basic equiptment. So if you’re more of an advanced baker, truth is you’ll definitely come across prettier, and more complex recipes on other sites and I doubt my take on things would intrigue you πŸ™ˆ

I came across this amazing upside down Oreo muffin recipe on Facebook however, I tweaked mine abit…because I mean, who doesn’t like less work πŸ™‚

If you know me, you’d know that I am a sucker for anything Oreo and so this recipe was a “must try” for me. The original recipe can be found by clicking Here

Here’s a list of ingredients you will need:

  • 1 pack of Oreos – R20.00
  • 1 500g chocolate muffin mix – R15.00 ( I used the golden cloud one, but you can use any brand you’d like) – yes, this was my shortcut πŸ™ˆ. You will need eggs, water and oil to add to the mix, the exact measurements can be found on the packaging.
  • 1 slab of Cadbury dairy milk chocolate- R11.00. The original recipe says white chocolate, so if that’s your preference, go for it.
  • Butter for greasing the muffin tray 

Things you will need: 

  • Muffin tray (12s)
  • Mixing bowl ( to mix your muffin mix and the wet ingredients)
  • Ice cream scoop 
  • Platter or plate 


  1. Pre-heat your oven @ 180 degrees. 
  2. Grease your muffin tray with butter, be generous because the last thing you want is for your dedacadent muffins to stick.
  3. Place an Oreo in each muffin cup.
  4. Open your muffin mix, add it to your mixing bowl and create a well in the centre. Add your wet ingredients to the well and mix until all the ingredients come together to form a nice batter. Do not over mix. 
  5. Add just an ice cream scoop of muffin batter to each muffin cup.
  6. Break a piece of chocolate and add it to each muffin cup. Make sure to press this down against the Oreo biscuit.
  7. Take another scoop of batter and add it over the chocolate piece, covering it completely. You don’t want to fill your muffin cups to the brim, as you’re going to serve your muffins upside down. 
  8. Make sure your mixture is even by lightly tapping your muffin tray to the counter.
  9. Bake for 15-20minutes (mine were done in 15)
  10. Once your muffins are done, transfer them to a plate or platter and let them rest. This is essential so that the chocolate in the centre melts.

Sit with a cup of milk and enjjjoooyy

My mother is not an Oreo fan, but she loved these boys… so much so, she packed in for work the next day (:
