I have wanted to make these for ages! Made coloured ones years ago and they were amazing so obviously when I got a Whoopie Pie recipe book for my birthday I had to try them again!
90g brown sugar
90g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
50g cocoa powder
1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180ªC.
Line a baking tray with parchment.
Beat sugars ans butter.
Add the egg.
In another bowl sift the flour and cocoa powder and bicarb soda and salt.
Fold into sugar and butter mixture.
Pop into a piping bag and pipe 12 circular blobs of batter onto your baking tray.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
50ml boiling water
15ml gelatine (powdered)
175g caster sugar
75ml golden syrup
25ml cold water
This was the interesting and fun part as I’ve never done this before!
Put the boiling water into a bowl and add the gelatine.
Whisk until dissolved.
Heat sugar golden syrup and cold water in a pan until it comes to the boil.
Gradually add the hot syrup to the bowl and mix on low speed.
Then whisk on high speed for 5+ minutes until it’s marshmallowy!
This is the hard part- try to put into an icing bag and pipe onto each half of the whoopies, then pop on the lids!
