Carrot Cake Whoopie-Pies

I have never baked any whoopie-pies before but heard so many delicious comments about them that I had to try myself! I have chosen this carrot version so everybody who loves carrot cake will definitely go crazy for this small treats! They are moist, soft, aromatic and the marshmallow filling makes them to die for!!!! You must try!!

makes 8-10 pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 150g sugar
  • 2 packages of vanilla sugar (16g each)
  • 125ml yoghurt
  • 25ml milk
  • 75g butter, softened
  • 275g flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon back powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 100g grated carrot
  • 170g soft butter
  • 280g icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 220g marshmallow fluff
In a mixing bowl mix together, egg, sugar and vanilla sugar. When all the ingredients combine add yoghurt and milk and whisk all together, add the soft butter and whisk until all combines. 
To another mixing bowl pour flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, backing powder and backing soda and whisk all together. Then pour a half of the flour mixture into the egg mixture and combine all ingredients, next pour the rest of the flour mixture and whisk again until all combines. Take the grated carrot into your hands and press out the juice, next pour the carrot into the paste and whisk to combine.
Now put the mixture into the fridge for approx 30min to rest.
Preheat the owen to 175°C.
Take out from the fridge and with a spoon form 16-20 round small heaps (approx 3-5cm diameter) keeping 2-3cm distance from each other. Bake for 10-13 minutes until the cakes get a nice golden color. 
In the mean time prepare the filling:  In a mixing bowl mix butter, icing sugar, cinnamon until they get fluffy, now add the marshmallow fluff and whisk until everything combines. Put the filling into the fridge for the next 30minutes. 
When your pies are cool spread one spoon of the filling on one half of the pies, take the other half and press gently together. Enjoy!!!!!
