Making Whoopie

Okay, call me silly. But I had never heard of Whoopie Pie. And of course just like any other kind of Whoopie--they turn out to be wonderful.

A whoopie pie, sometimes alternatively called a gob, black-and-white, or bob is a baked good traditional to the Pennsylvania Dutch culture as well as New England, made of two small, chocolate, disk-shaped cakes with a sweet, creamy frosting sandwiched between them.

Combine that with FLUFF which I had never eaten til this last week.
Okay I am 45 and deprived?
So I gave you the recipe for Whoopie Pies.
Now you too can

Whoopie Pies

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 c. unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Filling (recipe follows)

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease two large cookie sheets and set aside. In a large bowl with mixer at medium speed beat egg and vegetable oil. Gradually beat in sugar and continue beating until pale yellow in color. In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a measuring cup combine milk and vanilla. Add flour and milk mixtures alternately to eggs and sugar, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. These will spread a lot, so make 6 cakes per sheet at a time. Bake about 5 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched with finger. Remove to wire racks to cool. When cool, use filling and two cakes to make sandwiches. Makes 15.

  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 c. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 c. Marshmallow Fluff (about 1/2 of a 7 1/2-oz. jar)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

In a medium bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and remaining ingredients until light and fluffy.

Thanks to for the recipe!


  1. another thing you can do with fluff is beat it with cream cheese - approximately half a jar of fluff to one brick of cream cheese and a tiny bit of milk if necessary to make it the consistency of frosting. then you spoon this over fruit. it's not quite the same as making whoopie - pies, that is... but it sure is fun to lick off of stuff :).

  2. Wow, that looks sinful...and messy!!

  3. Those look yummy! I will try them..

  4. These look all sorts of yummy! I want to try those!
