Vegan whoopie pies

A vegan delight

Not quite a pie, not quite a cookie or cake, these fun desserts are somewhere in between. A sweet creamy filling is sandwiched between two chocolate cakes and served with a fork.

Makes 10 pies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dairy-free almond milk
  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free soy margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T. egg replacer powder mixed with 3 T. hot water
  • For the Filling:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) dairy-free soy margarine
  • 8 ounces (1 tub) dairy-free cream cheese, such as Tofutti
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 T. dairy-free vanilla soy yogurt

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the dairy-free almond milk and apple cider vinegar, and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, or until thickened and slightly curdled. Set aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat the dairy-free soy margarine and sugar until fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the Egg Replacer mixture, and beat until the mixture is creamy and well combined. Add the dry mixture in several additions, alternating with the almond milk mixture, until all ingredients have been added and the mixture is smooth.

4. Using an ice cream scoop or measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the prepared sheets, leaving about 2" between cakes. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cakes spring back when pressed. Use a spatula to transfer the cakes to a wire cooling rack to cool completely before filling.

5. Make the filling. In a large bowl using an electric hand mixer, cream together the dairy-free soy margarine, dairy-free cream cheese and powdered sugar until the mixture is combined, about 3-4 minutes. Add the dairy-free soy yogurt and mix until smooth.

6. Turn half of the cooled cakes upside-down (flat side up), and spread a generous amount of filling. Top with the the other cakes (flat side down) and serve.

Great!, Member Ziggy1972

I am not a vegan, and these turned out very yummy. I made them for my boss who is trying to eat more vegan dishes. To the reviewer that said they turned out hard and flat, all I can say is you must have done something wrong...mine were very spongey and cakelike. Try again!
