New Favorite Whoopie Pie

This is my new favorite chocolate Whoopie Pie recipe!

Whoopie Pie

For the cake…
1 stick unsalted butter, soft
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cup white all-purpose flour

For the filling…
1 stick unsalted butter, soft
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl cream together the soft unsalted butter with the white granulated sugar until the mixture is light in color and fluffy in texture.

Beat in the large egg and pure vanilla extract.

Beat in the buttermilk.

Add in the instant coffee granules, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Beat in the unsweetened cocoa powder, followed by the white all-purpose flour.

Dollop 1/4 cup size amounts of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, one baking sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 14 minutes.

Remove and cool completely.

To make the frosting beat together the soft unsalted butter with the powdered sugar and whole milk. Beat in the pure vanilla extract. Add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency. You are looking for a thick but spreadable frosting.

To make the Whoopie Pies, sandwich a large dollop of frosting between two of the Whoopie Pie halves. Wrap with plastic wrap. Chill if desired.
