Southerncake, I guess you could start with a basic non-chocolate whoopie pie recipe and tweak it. Maybe something like this, but feel free to change and rearrange:

3 cups flour
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup Crisco vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
couple tbs of strawberry flavor

I haven't used LorAnn (I think it's called?) oils, but I hear they're great. There's some gourmet flavor thread going on somewhere on the forum. They might have good strawberry ideas. Come to think of it, there was a strawberry cake thread going on not long ago that would have some really good ideas. Maybe you could do a search for it. And maybe you could use the flavor in the filling too and maybe even fold in some real strawberry pieces. Then too there's always plain old Nestle Strawberry Quick and Hershey's Strawberry syrups out there! Hope this helps! icon_smile.gif

You could also use the cake mix version using a strawberry cake mix!

enjoy!



I haven't tried making the cake part of your recipe but I made the filling and sandwiched it between cookies. It rocks!

How are you losing all that weight making Whoppie Pies? icon_lol.gif

Okay...since this thread started I decided to track the sale of our " pudgy pies" , oh and I should add that we have raised the prices to $4, and they still sell out every day.

Oatmeal Cream Pudgy - average 3.5 dozen per day
Fudgy Pudgy- average 3 dozen per day

And then we rotate in Banana-Nutella, Red Velvet, Pumpkin, Lemon, and Fudgy pudgy peanut, and they all sell well, too.

For me the beauty is that I can assign them to a student, so they have little or no extra labor cost ( since I have the girls assemble them when the counter is slow and I am paying them anyway) and the sales are 2 to 3 hundred dollars per day.

Wow Snarkybaker, that's pretty awesome! I assume your pudgy pies are whoopie pies incognito? How big around are your pudgy pies?? Here in Maine, whoopie pies are pretty darn big. And I guess you have a retail store too?

I finally got a chance to check out the box of the Oreo Cakesters in the supermarket as some people have mentioned them on this thread. The box was TINY and it said it contained TWELVE of them!! I don't think we could fit more than 2 or 3 Maine whoopie pies in that box!

By the way, I love the name fudgy pudgy peanut, tee hee! icon_smile.gif

I have a Whoopie Pie as one of my Gourmet Cake Flavors. Make a traditional moist devils food, torte, add the filling and you've got a Torted version of a whoopie pie! Brides love it!!!!

Our pies are about 41/2 inches across and 1 inch thick by the time all is said and done. They are less cakey and more chewy than the traditional moon pie, the fudgies are based on a brownie recipe,rather than cake. The filling is the secret. Most of the fillings are either too sweet or too soft.

lucettaslegacy, what filling recipe are you adding to your cake for that?
Snarky, I hope you snap a few shots of them !
post #120 of 425
That's a decent size, snarky. I agree with you about the filling being TOO darn sweet in many of the recipes! It's like sinking your teeth into a bag of sugar ONLY. My tastebuds get so overwhelmed that I can't even taste the flavor of the cake. Of course, I realize many people like the filling super sweet. However, yours are selling like hotcakes, so I would say there are a lot of people out there who maybe want LESS sweet sweets, like me.

Please post a picture, and do tell us more about why your cakes are "chewy." It sounds quite interesting, and I'm always looking for a new whoopie pie filling and cake recipe. Oh, by the way, where are you located? The reason I ask is because you are getting a GOOD price for your whoopie pies, and I don't think ANY whoopie pie, no matter how good (and I'll bet yours are great!), would sell for that price here in Maine. Thanks! icon_smile.gif
