Whoppie Pies With Chocolate Buttercream Filling



So I was in Sainsbury's recently and found this cookbook. It was only 99p,bargs! It has hundreds of recipes in it including Whoopie pies and macaroons. I decided to try out a few of the recipes so in this post I decided to try out Whoopie pies and put my own butter cream in them.
So if anyone has this book I used the recipe on page 9. It is just a basic Whoopie pie recipe,if not then continue reading. So this is the ingredients you will need to make these and the chocolate butter cream. 

Ingredients

110g Butter,softened 
110g Sugar
2 Eggs
225g Self raising flour
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

4oz Butter,softened
7oz Icing Sugar
1oz Cocoa Powder


So start by turning on your oven to 180C. I then started by placing the butter and sugar into a bowl and creaming them together. Then add the vanilla extract and eggs and beat together,next add the flour and that is it.

So next you will need to use a tablespoon to spoon the mixture onto a baking tray. Make sure they are all roughly the same size and spaced apart (oh and also you have an even amount to sandwich them all together later on). Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on how fast your oven cooks them. 

While they are cooling completely you need to make the chocolate butter cream.
You will need to cream the butter for 4-5 minutes or until it starts looking pale. Then start adding the icing sugar and cocoa powder bit by bit making sure it is mixed well.
Now the Whoopie pies have completely cooled you can spoon some of the butter cream on the flat side of a whoopie pie then sandwich them together.

So that is it, for my first time making them it was a very easy recipe to make. 
If there is anything you want me to make, let me know x
