Directions See How It's Made
- 1. Mix together cake ingredients until well combined. Drop (I use a cookie scoop) onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
- 2. For filling, mix first 5 ingredients together. Then add shortening and powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.
- 3. Once cakes are cool, (I use a larger scoop than used for cakes) spread or drop filling between two cakes.
- *For peanut butter whoopie pies mix in 1 cup of peanut butter to the filling.
