I have been baking whoopie pies for a few years now. Growing up in NY I had never heard of them, but mister is from Boston and taught me all about them. I have since created multiple recipes for different flavors and even wrote up a business plan to create a whoopie pie truck - it was a brilliant plan and name I came up with. But sadly there is not a market for it where I live. I live, lets say, in the middle of no where. The truck would do great in a city - Boston, NY, DC etc.. maybe someday I'll get to bring my truck to life when we move to Southern CA (mister keeps hinting at a bog move). Until then I live vicariously through my friend Erica who started up her own cupcake truck out in Providence (xoxo Erica!)
While I am going to keep my recipe a secret - I will steer you toward another whoopie pie recipe in case now you are craving whoopie pies..
Polly watches my every step during baking - you will see her probably in every baking picture I take unless I crop her watching eyes out!
I'm a little sad with how they turned out. I ran out of the normal cocoa I usually use, which gives them a really rich dark color and flavor, so I just used the generic regular cocoa I had on hand. Now go bake some whoopie pies! (or if you aren't a baker, run and support your local baker!)
