I want to make the oreo cupcakes and I don't have vegetable oil. Is it ok to use melted butter instead? Also the recipe I have calls for breadflour but is self raising/all purpose flour the same?

Vegetable oil will give different result to butter even if melted and bread flour is very different to self raising. There are a lot of recipes that uou can google for oreo cupcakes that use butter and self raising flour though thumbs_up.gif

Thank you for your reply. I decided just to go ahead and use the melted butter and SR flour and there was no disaster haha. The only slight problem was that i looked at the amount of sugar in the recipe and decided it looked an awful lot so cut 1 and half ounces off. Big mistake because of the strong bitterness of the cocoa !!! But I made up for it with the oreo buttercream topping. They were very nice anyway. And after all the worrying about converting the US measurments to UK, there was no need.

I use this recipe for oreo cupcakes:

It uses butter not oil and it's yummy!

I've used melted shortening in a pinch in case anyone else runs in to a similar issue...

This recipe looks great. Gonna give this one a try at the weekend. I tried the one with a chocolate base originally, never thought about a vanilla base. Thanks for the link. icon_smile.gif
