These Cookies and Cream Cup Cakes are always a favourite at the School Bake Sale. This particular batch was finished at 6:30 this morning. The school is currently raising money for a school they support in Tanzania. Jamie is going there for a month to help teach English. Jamie told me that they were the fastest selling cakes and this batch managed to raise 36 Euros. Most of this was due to the popular combination of Oreo Cookies and Chocolate.

The cake recipe is based on Nigella’s old fashioned chocolate cake recipe I hope she would approve of my adaptations. If you not have tried any of Nigella’s recipes give them a go,  they are always easy and tasty, but please come back to my site as well. Most of my German friends only know Jamie Oliver as a British cook. I have been trying to spread the word.

I have adapted the recipe by using creme fraiche instead of sour cream and making cup cakes rather than 1 big cake. The icing is a simple butter icing using the remaining creme fraiche and some of the broken bits from the Oreo Cookies. For the classic cookie,  top with half an Oreo, do this just before serving to prevent them going soggy.
