“Little chocolate cakes with creamy filling. This recipe has been handed down in my family for quite sometime and hasn't had any complaints yet.” - by Amy Kerby
Original recipe yields 24 cupcakes
- To make the cakes: Prepare mix as directed on package except using only 3/4 cup of water. Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper to line pan) in 2 1/2 to 3 inch circles. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool.
- To make the filling: In a saucepan, combine milk and flour and cook, stirring constantly until it forms a thick paste. Let cool.
- In a medium bowl, beat sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add vanilla. Add cooled flour mixture and beat until double in volume.
- Turn the little cakes over on their backs. Spoon a dollop of filling onto half of the little cakes. Place the other half of the cakes on top of the filling to form sandwiches.

"I love whoopie pies. I buy them all the time at market. So when I came across this one using a cake mix I thought, how easy is this. First thing I did was read all the reviews. I do this before I m..." See moreake anything. I noticed MANDY added more flour, SHANN said hers were flat and TOOSWEETPEAS wants hers nice and poofy. My suggestions: follow the directions on the box, keep the water at 3/4 cup. Blend all ingredients together. Beat one minute on medium speed, stop mixer and add a SMALL BOX OF JELLO INSTANT PUDDING MIX. Beat another minute. Your batter will be thick, not runny. Drop batter using a cookie scooper. Bake around 14 minutes or when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Your cakes will be perfectly round and NOT flat. I fill my pies using a peanut butter filling. To make the filling you DO NOT have to cook the flour and milk over the stove. What I do is I mix ALL the ingredients together except the shortening. I add this last and I use Criso butter flavor shortening. You keep adding crisco until the filling is nice and fluffy. You can substitute peanut butter in place of the vanilla."
"I've tried this recipe a number of times. I have found that adding 2-4 tbsp of flour helps to keep it from sticking. I've also found that letting the batter sit for a little bit helps give it more o..." See moref a shape. And the filling recipe I use is 1/2 c. shortening, 1 1/4 c. confectioner's sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 or 2 tbsp milk, 3/4 c. marshmallow fluff. Add more fluff to make it thicker. Tastes great!"
