Whoopie Pies

I attempted today to make Whoopie Pies.
A cup cake like sandwich cake with cream filling in between.


  • Plain Flour          1 2/3   Cups 
  • Cocoa powder       2/3   Cups 
  • Baking Soda       1 1/2  Teaspoons
  • Salt                     1  Teaspoon
  • Unsalted Butter       60 grams (room temp)
  • Copha                     60 grams
  • Brown Sugar          1    Cup
  • Egg                         1
  • Vanilla Extract        1    Teaspoon
  • Milk                        1    Cup


Preheat oven to 170 deg Celcius
Line baking tray with baking paper (parchment). Or use a "Whoopie Pie" special baking tray (available from the USA)

In a bowl sift together the flour, coca, baking soda and salt.
In your mix master, beat the butter, copha and sugar, on low until all combined.
Increase the speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.

Add the egg and the vanilla extract and beat for 2 more minutes.

Add half the flour mixture and half the milk and beat on low until all combined. 
Add the remaining flour and milk and beat until all combined. 

Using a Tablespoon, scoop the batter and drop in onto the baking tray, keeping each scoop 50mm about. (2 inches)

Don't flatten the mix on the tray, just let the mix drop out of the spoon.

Bake for 10 minutes. the cake should be springy.

Remove from oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Mix your cream. I used cream cheese butter cream, then spread onto one cake, and place another cake on top.
