Orange & Cream Whoopie Pies

This recipe was somewhat of a disaster. In theory it was a great idea but the execution didn’t go as planned. I used a cake mix for the batter which obviously made them more cakey than cookie-like so they fell apart completely when I attempted to take them out of the pan. They still tasted delicious don’t get me wrong, but I think this recipe would have worked so much better as orange & cream cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting.

Orange & Cream Whoopie Pies

Whoopie Pie

Adapted from Real Mom Kitchen

  • 1 package of yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of orange zest
  • 1 cup of Stewart’s Orange ‘n Cream soda
  • 1/2 cup of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, sugar, and orange zest. Whisk to combine. Add orange juice, canola oil, vanilla extract and eggs. Blend with the mixer on low speed for one minute, then speed it up to medium and beat for 2 more minutes
  3. Fill whoopie pie pan about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Bake until golden in color and a toothpick test comes out clean, about 10 minutes
  4. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely

Cream Cheese Filling

Martha Stewart

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

This is really the only half-decent picture I felt comfortable posting. I told you they fell apart when I tried taking them out of the pan so take my advice, make these into cupcakes!
