I tried a cake mix one once, but it was not very good!

Hey all! I thought you might like to see a pic of how a Maine whoopie pie looks in person. This is the queen of whoopie pies herself, Ann Bouchard: http://www.wickedwhoopies.com/info.php?ssidx=MzI2MS43Ng==

Hey, its funny that this came up this week! just last week a local newspaper featured whoopie pies on the front of the food section and after reading the article I decided I had to try them! The article is here http://akronohio.planetdiscover.com/sp?keywords=whoopie+pie&skin=&aff=1100&Submit2=Go and answers a lot of the questions that have been asked here on CC. ...However I also tried this recipe http://www.marthastewart.com/article/whoopie-pie?autonomy_kw=whoopie&rsc=header_3recipe from Martha Stewart and found I liked them much better cake wise then the ones in the newspaper article as they baked even, smooth and rounded with a *slightly* dry cake that would work well in combination with the cream filling; the newspsper ones I found spread too much and were *very* moist. I'm still out on the fillings...
Hope this helps!

I made these the other day...used the Wicked Whoopie Recipe, and no one in our house likes them! What is the filling supposed to taste like? It reminds me of Wilton's bc recipe but thick. I followed the recipe to a T, and no one who has tried them liked them at all! Everyone said they'd rather have these made with chocolate chip cookies and my buttercream!

I'm not sure, Jen. It's definitely a "regional" favorite, that's for sure. Here in Maine, they can't keep them on the shelves. They're kind of odd, I guess, not nearly as pretty or elegant as other desserts. But for some reason, they're sweeping the nation! If you followed the Wicked Whoopie Recipe, you've made a decent one. I posted some other recipes on page 3 of this thread. Give them a look over and see what you think. I hope you find a recipe you like! icon_smile.gif

My kids keep asking for the pumpkin whoopies! I made banana nut whoopies the other night and oh my were they awesome! I have to play around with my recipe though, because they baked up flat.

I made chocolate whoopies for my son to take to school yesterday for his birthday. We rolled the edges in sprinkles and they were really cute! I am not a huge fan of the chocolate ones. But, I am not big on chocolate cake.

Jen when I make them I use cream cheese frosting. They may not be authentic, but I hate shortening icings.

Theresa (playingwithsugar)....did you ever get back to the Amish for their filling recipe? I'd love to try it, if it's as you described. I don't like shortening icings, or really marshmallow creme....so really curious what they do! Your mission, if you choose to accept.... lol

I went, but the girl told me I had to speak with the stand owner, who was not expected until near closing time.

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it. I bought another one that day, too.

I just tried the Wicked Whoopie Pie and filling recipe. I like the filling but I cut down the vanilla to 3 tbsp after reading a review that said the alcohol flavor was way too strong.

I used an ice cream scoop to scoop the same amount of batter each time. They flattened out way too much and lost their shape.

Any advise from the Whoopie pros?

For my chocolate whoopies I made I just used the recipe on Epicurious.com. Mine come out just like the picture.

Totally off topic, but GREAT tip! I just did this. Sooo nice. Although if I shop at G. S. A. I do like to click thru from CC so that they know that CC drove the business...but for those times I can just disable it temporarily. Yay!
