In order to cheer up my poorly other half I thought I’d incorporate his favourite biscuit into a muffin. I may have eaten one fresh out the oven for quality control purposes. I can confirm: they’re all good.

I used this recipe as guideline, changed it all to cups and halved the ingredients to yield 5 muffins.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

1) in a bowl, cream together 1/3 cup of softened butter and 1/3 cup of caster sugar.

2) sift over just under 1/2 cup of self raising flour and 1 dessert spoon of cocoa powder.

3) add one beaten egg, 1 teaspoon of milk and a drop of vanilla extract.

4) whizz together with an electric mixer.

5) bash up 5 oreo cookies and mix in the batter.

6) spoon batter into cake cakes, fill them just over halfway so they rise up.

7) oven for 25 minutes.

Try desperately hard not to eat them before giving them as a get well present.
