Black Forest Whoopie Pies

The Black Forest Whoopie Pies Recipe is a modern imitation of the famous gâteau, using canned cherries.

12 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
3.4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1.2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup whole milk or buttermilk
2 tbsp Greek yogurt or thick plain yogurt
8oz (225g) canned black cherries, drained,
or use frozen, defrosted
9oz (250g) mascarpone
2 tbsp sugar

1 Preheat the oven to 350‹F (180‹C). Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

2 In a bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients and the milk into the batter, in alternate spoonfuls. Fold in the yogurt. Chop 4oz
(100g) of the cherries and fold these in, too.

3 Place heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheets, leaving space between them. Roll into smooth balls with wet hands, then press down gently onto the baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.

4 Puree the remaining cherries until smooth. Mix the blended cherries and sugar into the mascarpone until well mixed; alternatively, leave a ripple effect in the filling.

5 Spread 1 tablespoon of the filling onto the flat side of each cooled cake half, and sandwich together with the remaining halves. STORE Best eaten the day of baking but can be stored for 1 day in the refrigerator.
