Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray Whoopie Pie Pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well combined.

Step 3

In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add half the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and mix on low speed. When dry ingredients are almost incorporated, stop the mixer and add the buttermilk. Continue to mix on low speed until all ingredients are almost incorporated. Stop the mixer and add the remaining dry ingredients. Mix on low until just combined. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into each cavity; spread batter to the edges. Cavity should be about 2/3 full.

Step 4

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the top of the cake springs back when touched. Allow cakes to cool in pan 8 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely before filling. To assemble pies spread filling on one cake and sandwich with another cake.

Whoopie Pies is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cake part is phenomenal! I did not care for the filling recipe, I would prefer the filling recipe to be less dense, lighter and less sticky. The cake part of the recipe is absolutely perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made the heart shaped whoopie pies for the second time. INSTEAD of using 2 TBS of the batter in the cavity, I used a little bit more than ONE Tablespoon -- this made the cakes a bit thinner, which I liked because they are easier to eat when put together. PLUS i was able to make more than 12 pies from one batch. I made 16 pies total. I used a muffin tin for 6 pies (12 cakes) and just filled a little in the bottom of the pan since I don't have a circular whoopie pie pan yet. this worked out well. This is my new favorite thing to make!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This looks amazing! I'm going to try adding a dash of mint flavoring (hubby's favorite!) as well as maybe a little lemon flavoring. While we're at it why not strawberry flavor too! I see a lot of whoopie pies in my future!
