DIRECTIONS

  • For the chocolate cake:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Beat the sugar, butter and eggs with a mixer for about 30 seconds. Add the vanilla and beat for 30 seconds more. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, alternating with the milk and beating until smooth.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, drop mounds of the batter (about 1/2 cup for each) onto the lined baking sheet (6 per sheet as they will spread when baking). Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • For the marshmallow filling:
  • Whisk together the sugar, honey, vanilla, egg whites and 2 tablespoons water (30ml) in a large heatproof bowl using a hand mixer. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Beat with the mixer until the mixture is thick, creamy and stands in peaks, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and beat for a minute or so more, then let cool completely. (You can keep the marshmallow filling in the refrigerator until ready to use.).
  • Spread a generous amount of filling on the flat side (bottom) of a chocolate cake. Sandwich with another cake, pressing down gently to spread the filling evenly. Repeat to make 8 whoopie pies. Serve immediately or wrap the whoopie pies individually in plastic wrap (they can be frozen).
