Sweet biplane

Whoopies are reminiscent of miniature cake with a heart of fine cream and filled double biscuits. The sweet sandwiches are the new shooting stars in the baking sky.

Whoopie's baking is not art. The fine cakes are jerky and made in a few easy steps. The procedure is the same for everyone. The dough is mixed, sprayed onto the plate and then filled - not with a heavy butter cream, but a fruity, light or chocolate cream.

They look like Maccarons, they taste even better. While the French classics are made from whipped egg whites, Whoopie Pies are made from a fine batter .

Always keep an eye on the stuffed delicacies. Whoopies are quickly consumed or keep well refrigerated for 2-3 days in an airtight container . The individual biscuit halves can be stored for a week.

Everyone bakes you in the USA, hardly anyone in Germany. Be the first and celebrate with admirable looks. ' WHOOPIES - Sweet Biplane ', published by GRÄFE AND UNZER Verlag (ISBN 978-3-8338-3970-2) combines the tastiest recipes of filled mini cakes. You can immediately bake back three delicious recipes from the book.

And because Whoopie is an expression of joy in the US, we're pulling the Americans and asking for backbiting: Whoopie, Whoopie, Whoopie !!!
