I wanted to make whoopie pies. More precisely ice cream filled whoopie pies. I had never made whoopie pies before and, as usual, I just looked around the web and in my books, looking for a convincing recipe. I found thousands of them and all different from each other. So I came up with mine.
But I decided not to give up on them! I added some flour hoping that would help them keep their shape and it seems it worked. The second batch was better. They were still weird though. I don’t think whoopie pies are supposed to have the texture of a sponge cake, do they? Well, mine were like tiny sponge cakes L Don’t take me wrong, they were good and still pretty cute. I made them coffee flavored with vanilla ice cream filling. The contrast of tastes was very good. But still, I don’t think I can call these “whoopie pies” and cross them out of my wish-to-bake-soon list.
