Whoopie Pies!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have wanted to make Whoopie Pies for a long time. What a fun name for food! Plus chocolate and marshmallow creme, what could be wrong about that? Let's make whoopie pies, shall we...

Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Fluff Frosting.
Whoopie Pies!

Whoopie Pies
adapted from:  The Marshmallow Fluff Cookbook
350-degree oven
makes 15 (small) pies OR I got 8 large pies

1 large egg
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 c sugar
2 c flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/4 c milk
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare/grease 2 large baking sheets, set aside.

In a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed, beat the egg and vegetable oil until combined. Gradually beat in the sugar and continue beating until pale yellow in color.

In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, soda, and salt, whisk to combine. In a measuring cup combine the milk and vanilla.

Add the flour and milk mixtures alternately to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.

Drop by tablespoons onto the baking sheets. These will spread a lot, so make 6 cakes per sheet, at a time.

Bake for about 5 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched with a finger. Let cool on pans for a minute or 2 to prevent the delicate cookie from crumbling. Remove to wire racks for complete cooling. Continue baking until all dough has been baked.

 When completely cool, sandwich the filling between 2 cakes to form the Whoopie Pies.

I stocked up, there are some fun recipes in this book!
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 c confectioners sugar
1 c Marshmallow Fluff
1 t vanilla

In a medium-size bowl, beat butter and sugar together. Add Marshmallow Fluff and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
(this stuff is delicious, but then again butter, sugar, and marshmallow creme would never taste bad.....)

  1. Whoopie Pies has been on my list, ever since I got my Rose's Heavenly Bakes cookbook, which was a year ago! It is still on the list! :) Thanks for the reminder!
    Your marshmallow filling sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day, Melynda!

  2. I haven't had a Whoopie pie in years. These look great. Who doesn't love marshmallow fluff?

  3. These look soooo good!!! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! :-)

  4. I'm not entirely sure, Melynda, but I think commercial lard is hydrogenated so it will hold that nice brick shape on the shelf. Natural (non-hydrogenated) lard is a little softer, I believe, and has to be held in a container.

    The reason I don't know for sure is that I think natural lard is kind of hard to come by. I think you have to render your own or buy it from a meat processor. I've never seen it at the store. I, too, try to avoid any hydrogenated fats.

  5. Those look great and my husband would adore them. However, I'll have to wait a while before any baking occurs in my little hot kitchen.

  6. Well, I can honestly say I have never tried a Whoopie Pie - not something you ever hear of in New Zealand. Obviously I need to try your recipe and rectify that.
