  • Ingredients for whoopie cake:
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of fine salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Ingredients for filling:
  • 1 pint mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup blueberry puree strained
  • pinch of fine salt
  • Cooking Directions

    For the cakes: Arrange the oven rack in the upper and lower 2/3 of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper

    Take flower, cocoa, baking soda and salt and whisk together in a medium bowl

    Cream butter and sugar in the bowl with electric mixer at high speed until fluffy (about 4 min) Add egg and milk and beat at medium speed until incorporated. At low speed add the flower mixture in 2 batches, alternating with the milk, mixing until just blended

    Using a half tablespoon measure, drop 18 generous teaspoons of batter onto each sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cake. Bake both sheets at the same time for about 5 to 7 minutes, until springy to the touch. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to racks to cool completely.

    For the filling: Beat together mascarpone, confectioners sugar, salt and vanilla in a bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth for about 3 minutes. Fold in blueberry puree.

    Spread filling on half of the cakes. Sandwich together and serve!

    For the blueberry puree: Pulse a pint of blueberries in a blender or food processor until pureed. Strain mixture with a strainer or cheese cloth
