I showed how to bake these on TV3’s Ireland AM on Friday 2nd June

You can watch me make these on my YouTube channel

A whoopie pie is sort of a cross between a cookie and a cake, usually sandwiched with buttercream or marshmallow fluff. I like to turn them into more of a dessert and sandwich them with fresh cream and berries. 

They are so easy to make, an ideal recipe to make with the kids, and don’t need any baking tins or liners – just a flat baking sheet or cookie sheet, lined with greaseproof paper. 

280g Plain Flour
1tsp Bread Soda
1/4tsp Salt
120ml Buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
85g butter (room temp)
140g Caster Sugar
1 egg
Chocolate chips/berries/nuts (topping of choice)

• Preheat oven to 170 degrees
• In a bowl combine flour, bread soda and salt.
• In a measuring jug combine the buttermilk and vanilla. Set both of these aside
• Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
• Add in the egg on medium speed and beat until combined.
• Reduce the speed on the mixer and alternately add in the flour and buttermilk mixes until flour is incorporated.
• With an ice-cream scoop or spoons scoop the batter onto a lined flat baking tray (make sure to leave space between each scoop as they will spread in the oven)
• Top each scoop with chocolate chips, fruit or topping of your choice
• Bake in a preheated oven 170C degrees for 12 minutes.
• Place on a rack to cool
• Once cooled, sandwich with buttercream or whipped cream and enjoy
• You can also add extra fruit to the filling such as chopped strawberries, blueberries or raspberries.

Let me know if you bake them. x
