This is a recipe that has been in our family for years and years. Our mom used to make these for us when we were kids. The filling is more like a devil dog filling not a frosting. Very Yummy! I use this same filling on angel food cake too!


2 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Cream of Tarter
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/4 cups Sugar
2/3 cups Shortening
2 Eggs
1 cup Milk
2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Milk
3 tablespoons Flour
1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Shortening
2 teaspoons Vanilla

Original recipe makes 18



Cakes: Cream sugar and shortening, add eggs. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then in another small bowl mix milk and vanilla. Alternate the dry and wet ingredients into the creamed mixture. Our Mom always lined the cookie sheets with wax paper so I still do that. It is not necessary but it does prevent the bottoms from getting too brown. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet and Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, cool on racks.

Filling: In a small sauce pan add milk and flour. Cook on low heat stirring constantly until it becomes like a thick paste. In mixing bowl beat sugar, shortening and butter until creamy, add Vanilla. Add warm paste to the mixing bowl and beat on high speed for 5 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved and nice and fluffy. Put filling between 2 cakes and enjoy! :)

Love these, grew up with them. The filling is also good on angel food cake for frosting.

Pretty good for the cake part but the filling is perfect. Added peanut butter to mine.

I liked the filling, but I must not have made the pie part correctly. Might re-try to see if I messed up.

Took to picnic, none left! Made lots of dirty bowls & pan but basically easy. Loved the filling, way better than the marshmallow-creme type. We PA Dutch say we invented these but some say Maine, delicious either way.

I love whoopie pies! This one comes the closest to the ones like to eat. The cake is perfect, and filling is great. Next time I make these, will try some flavors in the filling...peanut butter, or maybe raspberry. Thanks for sharing!!

I'm in a quandary. 17 pies left and 5 hours to bedtime. Could be trouble. Great pies!!! Vanilla milk and flour roux are both interesting techniques that I haven't used before.
