Another recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
We were in Portland, Maine a number of years ago and had one of the best whoopie pies ever, unfortunately I do not remember the name of the bakery. We just came upon it during one of our walks around town. I should have paid more attention but I was too focused on what I was eating. Since then, I have been obsessed with whoopie pies and have tried many many recipes until I found one that had just the right springiness in the “cake” and then, with a few tweaks, I was able to find the perfect balance of flavors (at least from my perspective). Here is our current favorite chocolate vanilla cream whoopie pie recipe, which is essentially the whoopie pie recipe from Cooking Classy with a couple of changes. I use a vanilla buttercream filling instead of the marshmallow cream filling from Cooking Classy as I find the marshmallow cream a bit too sweet for my liking. I sometimes fill them with a vanilla whipped cream cream cheese filling which also is incredibly indulgent, but I am reserving that filling for a spiced whoopie pie that I am still working on.
We like to provide our guests an afternoon treat at Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast, which varies from day to day–just a little surprise after a day of exploring and playing in and around the Bayfield, Wisconsin area. These chocolate whoopie pies likely will make the afternoon treat rotation this summer. We hope our guests enjoy these whoopie pies as much as we do. Thanks for checking in with us.
