  • One box of Lillabee Finest Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of milk (cow, rice, almond, etc.)
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 large egg

Preheat oven 350º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine vanilla, milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside. Heat water and keep hot. In the bowl of your standing mixer with the flat mixing attachment (I love this Flex Edge atachment for my  Kitchen Aid mixer) cream butter or margarine, then add in milk mixture and Lillabee Finest Chocolate Cake mix and blend until combined. Add in hot water and mix until fully incorporated. Add in egg.

Now, this step is optional, but it will definitely yeild a nicer looking whoopie pie: Let batter rest for 20-30 min. If you choose to bake right away, your whoopies will still be oh so tasty, but slightly pitted on the top. For a smooth surface the batter must rest.

After batter has rested, use a 4 oz ice cream scoop (this is the one I use) to place dollops of batter 2″ apart on baking sheet. If you do not have an icecream scoop, use a spoon to portion 1/4 cup of batter. Bake at 350° F for 14-16 min or on convection for 7-9 min. Let cool on baking sheet completely before assembling.

For the filling, I used our vanilla bean frosting from our cookies ‘n cream cupcakes.

To assemble, place one whoopie cake dome side down, pipe frosting on top with pastry bag or scoop with a large spoon, then top with another whoopie cake dome side up. Top with a dash of powdered sugar and serve.

And that’s all, folks… Whoopie!!

Happy baking from the Lillabee Hive!
