Recipe: Whoopie Pies

I'm a recipe book hoarder. Every day I pick up a book and mark recipes I like, find intimidating or am just curious about. The last 4 books I bought had large portions dedicated to 'Whoopie Pies'. I've never eaten or made one before so I did some research. Most websites claimed Whoopie Pies are the new Cupcakes (Jeez, people have got to stop finding the new cupcake, or new macaron or new brownie! I hate these trends. Just bake and eat what makes you happy!).
Last week I got together with Sheena (check out her work here, she is extremely talented!) and we made whoopie pies, following a recipe from the Humming Bird Book. The result? A very dense and heavy cake which I personally wasn't too fond of. Sheena and our other friends loved them. Here's the recipe, make them and let me know what you think! Happy Baking :)

Chocolate Whoopie Pies
Recipe adapted from Cake Days by the HummingBird Bakery

For the Cake
1 egg
150g Castor sugar
125g Yogurt
25 ml Milk
75g Butter (melted)
200g Flour
60g Cocoa Powder
3/4th tsp baking soda
1/4th tsp baking powder

Filling (we used a regular butter cream) 

Method
1. Whisk the egg and the castor sugar till light and pale.
2. Add the yogurt, milk and melted butter to the above and mix well.
3. Sift the dry ingredients together and then slowly add to the batter in small batches, whisking after each addition.
4. Refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes
5. Once you remove the batter, pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees (Celsius) and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
6. Spoon the batter on the trays, dividing the mixture into 16-20 mounds, each 3-5 cm in diameter and 2 inches apart.
7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from the trays and let them cool completely before sandwiching together.

To assemble- take one of the pies and spread 1 tbsp of the butter cream on the flat side and then stick the other pie over it to make a sandwich. Voila!
