Whoopie Pies!

I’m joining my first cooking challenge — I didn’t know these existed, if you know of any please, please, please pass along the information.

The challenge is to make a Whoopie Pie. With so many recipes already online I’ve decided to create a savoury whoopie pie. My idea, so far, is to make the cake portion no sweeter than a hamburger bun and the filling with a flavoured bรฉchamel or a savoury marshmallow.

I have a project now! Time to break the Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose F50, Carrageenan, and egg whites. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Did I miss the actual whoopie-making post or is that still in the works? I wanna see how you make the cakey part, I’ve never made these myself.

    • You’re awesome! Thank you very much.
      Out of curiosity, what flavour combinations were most popular on your side of the ocean?

      • very British ones, strawberries and cream with a victoria sponge like base for the whoopie bit were popular around the time that Wimbledon was on. Macha tea and white chocolate is a nice combination and you are in a position to get all kinds of good green tea! Sake and dark chocolate is another good combination.

      • I agree with the matcha and white chocolate suggestion- one of my personal favorites. I’ve seen an earl grey variety out there before and always wanted a taste. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Now I’m hungry with a sweet tooth!

      • Sorry no recipes, I live near Lancaster County in Pennsylvania, so there are plenty of Amish and Mennonite bakers who bake and sell them regularly – but my absolute favorite was a lemon cake with a lemon cream cheese filling. I also have delicious creamsicle whoopies, pumpkin and chocolate mint and have sampled red velvet, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie whoopies. If I could make a dream whoopie it would be a white chocolate cake with pecans and an orange cream filling. Looking forward to seeing your finished product!
