Whoopie Pies

Imagine a homemade Oreo cookie, but without the cookie or the cream bit. Maybe we’re not explaining this in the best possible way… A whoopie pie is a classic US recipe that is a cross between a cookie, a pie and a cake, with marshmallow or buttercream sandwiched between two light chocolatey discs. This recipes makes 16-18 small pies, but there’s nothing stopping you making one large one – just turn the temperature down slightly on your oven and leave to bake until cooked.

  • Ingredients

    125g Unsalted Butter
    200g Caster Sugar
    2 Large Eggs
    280g Plain Flour
    5tbsp Cocoa Powder
    1tsp Baking Powder
    A Pinch of Salt
    250ml Buttermilk
    1tsp Vanilla Extract
    16-18 Marshmallows

How to Cook

1. Heat your oven to 180C (160C if using a fan oven)/Gas Mark 4. Line two baking sheets with greaseproof/parchment paper.

2. Combine the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy (use either an electric mixer or wooden spoon). Beat in the eggs one by one.

3. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder into a separate bowl.

4. Pour the buttermilk into a jug and stir in the vanilla extract. Gradually add small amounts into the butter/sugar mix, alternating with the dry ingredients, until everything is combined and you have a thick batter of dropping consistency.

5. Drop 1 teaspoonful of the batter onto the baking sheets for each small pie round (the mix should make 16-18). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until they have risen.

6. Remove from the oven and keep half of the pie rounds to one side. Turn the other half over and place a marshmallow on each one. Return to the oven for a further 2-3 minutes until the marshmallow has melted slightly. Remove from the oven, leave to cool slightly for a minute, then sandwich together with the remaining pie rounds whilst the marshmallow is still warm.
