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.

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
