Chocolate Whoppie Pie

They are not Macarons!  They are the Whoppie Pies.

No, they do not taste like pies, its name might have suggested that, though.

They do not taste like macarons, its look might have misled you at the first glance.

They do not taste like cookie, though it’s alternatively called as BFO – Big Fat Oreo.

They are simply two rounded cakes with cream sandwiched between them.  These whoppie pies turned out not too bad, but somehow my family didn’t enjoy eating them.  I’m submitting this to our Bake-Along event jointly hosted by Lena of Frozen Wings, Joyce of Kitchen Flavours and Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids.

I decided to experiment these whoppie pies using the macaron kit bought recently.   This kit comes with a silicone mat, a batter holder and some pipping tips.

Ready to send these whoppie pies  into oven….

After they are baked..

Chocolate Whoppie Pie

Ingredients

1-3/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt ( I omitted )

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 tbsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

113g unsalted butter, room temperature ( I used salted butter )

3/4 cup caster sugar

1 large egg

1 cup buttermilk ( I used plain yoghurt )

1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

1. Preheat oven 200 degrees C.

2. Sift together flour, salt ( if using), cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.  Set aside.  Line baking pans with silpats or parchment paper.

3.  In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, buttermilk ( or yoghurt ), and vanilla extract.  Beat until well combined.

4.  Slowly add dry ingredients from step 2.  Mix until combined.

5. Using a ice-cream scoop ( or pipping bag ), place cookies onto lined baking pans with 2-3″ apart.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove to a rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining batter.

6. Spread a dollop of fillings and sandwich between 2 cookies.
