Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies
These were quite interesting but I’d still rather an actual carrot cake, still worth a try though!
150g brown sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
1.5 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
175g grated carrots
75g chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 180ªC and prep a tray with parchment.
Whisk margarine, brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one by one.
Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Fold into the 1st mixture. Add buttermilk. Fold in carrots and walnuts.
Pop into a pastry bag and pipe onto the baking tray.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
Cream cheese filling
120ml double cream
100g cream cheese
1/2 small orange zest
Whip the cream until stiff.
Add the cream cheese, honey and orange zest.
I found this wouldn’t stay stiffened-found it very wet- would not make it again.
Pipe on the frosting and add a lid!
