Whoopie Pies Recipe


There's a big trend towards Whoopie Pies at the moment - and there's good reason.  They take the best parts of a cupcake - the top and the frosting - and sandwich them together in a mouthwatering party treat.  We love the combination and they look really special too.  Here's our best recipe (adapted from Donna Hay's recipe) for creating Whoopie Pies your guests will adore, and it's pretty easy for you too!


250g unsalted butter
1 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of caster sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder

Frosting ingredients

If you're out of time - you can choose to fill your pies with store bought vanilla buttercream frosting, otherwise, here's the traditional marshmallow filling recipe:

150g marshmallows
30g unsalted butter
60g white chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
  2. Cream the butter, brown and caster sugars - usually around 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs and beat until completely combined.
  4. Slowly fold in the flour, cocoa and baking powder until completely combined.
  5. Roll the whoopie pies into balls and place on baking trays lined with greaseproof baking paper.  Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon or the palm of your hand.  You can also buy special whoopie pie baking trays from the supermarket and specialty kitchen shops, so if you love these treats you might like to invest in these. 
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden, and cool on wire racks.
  7. To make frosting - heat the marshmallows and butter on a low heat in a small saucepan.  Stir continuously until the butter and marshmallows have completely combined and are smooth.  Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stiring until it has melted through the mix.  Allow to cool.
  8. Spread the icing on the flat side of your whoopie pie cakes, and sandwich together with another whoopie pie cake. 

To complement your whoopie pies, you can purchase gorgeous cookie cutters, party bags and other party decorations for your party at Australia's number one online wedding and party shop, Pink Frosting.
