Chocolate & Marshmallow WHOOPIES

125g butter, at room temperature
  • 160g (1 cup, lightly packed) brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 300g (2 cups) plain flour
  • 330ml (1 1/3 cups) buttermilk

  • 3 egg whites
  • 270g (1 1/4 cups) caster sugar
  • 2 tbs glucose syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

  • Preheat oven to 190°C.
  • Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper
  • Use an electric beater to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy
  • Beat in the egg
  • Stir in the cocoa and bicarbonate of soda to combine
  • Use a metal spoon to fold in flour and buttermilk, in alternating batches, until just smooth
  • The mixture should be a little stiff
  • Use a 3cm-diameter ice-cream scoop* to place rounds of the mixture onto prepared trays, leaving 5cm for spreading. Use your finger to smooth mixture around the edges
  • Bake, swapping the trays halfway through cooking, for 10 minutes** or until firm.
  • Cool slightly then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat, in 2 more batches, with remaining mixture

  • To make the filling
  • Whisk the egg whites, sugar, glucose, vanilla and salt in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water for 10 minutes or until a ribbon trail forms when whisk is lifted
  • Transfer the marshmallow mixture to a clean bowl
  • Use an electric beater to beat for 5-8 minutes or until the mixture has cooled, is thick and holds it shape
  • Place whoopies, base-side up, on a clean work surface
  • Spoon the filling into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm fluted nozzle
  • Pipe filling onto half the whoopies, leaving a 2mm edge
  • Place the remaining whoopies on top and press lightly to sandwich together
  • Place the whoopies in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them

* I piped the whoopie mixture onto the trays.
** I baked for 6 minutes because I think mine were a little smaller
