Equipment Needed For Chilli Vanilla Whoopie Pies

  • Baking paper
  • Oven trays
  • Mixer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Cake tester

Ingredients Needed For Chilli Vanilla Whoopie Pies

  • Unsalted butter
  • Vanilla extract
  • Granulated sugar
  • Baking soda
  • Self-raising flour
  • Milk
  • Pure chilli powder
  • Icing sugar
  • Buttermilk
  • Egg

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and set two oven trays with baking paper. You will require at least two racks or oven trays.

Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl but add sugar and butter in a separate large bowl. Beat the sugar and butter before you add the other dry ingredients.

Keep alternating with milk; beat the ingredients with buttermilk until you get a smooth mixture. The sifted ingredients will not give you any trouble mixing.

Don’t forget to add the egg and extract when beating butter and sugar. Making whoopie pies resembles cake baking, but the end products are slightly different.

Step 2

Use a tablespoon to scope the mixture into the oven trays. One tablespoon of the mixture is enough for a small whoopie pie, but use two tablespoons if you want big pies.

You should be able to fit six whoopie pies in one rack, making a total of twelve. But you can always add an extra rack if you are feeding a large crowd.

Bake them for at least eight or ten minutes. The edges should be browned slightly; you can also use the cake tester to check if it’s ready before you stop baking and let them cool down.

They should be completely cool before you add filling.

Step 3

While they cool, you can start making the cream filling. Use an electric or handheld mixer to beat butter in a small bowl, add icing sugar, and continue beating.

Then stir in vanilla, salt, and you can always add in marshmallow create to make it the best filling. Mix everything thoroughly because you need it to be as consistent as possible.

It should be able to stay on the cake but also be spreadable. When it’s too thick, you will have trouble spreading it across the whoopie pies.

You can place it in the fridge for a little while if it’s too thin. Do all the tweaking your filling needs before adding them to the whoopie pies.

If the whoopie pies are cool at this point, you can add filling and serve immediately.
