    Petalwell Loves Pumpkin Whoopie Pies....

    This is a delicious recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery, London. A great alternative to Pumpkin Pie!


    - 120ml sunflower oil
    - 200g soft light brown sugar
    - ½ tsp vanilla essence
    - 1 large egg
    - 100ml tinned pumpkin puree
    - 250g plain flour
    - ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    - ½ tsp salt
    - 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    - 1 tsp ground ginger

    For The Filling:

    - 85g unsalted butter
    - 150g icing sugar, extra for dusting
    - 80g full fat cream cheese
    - 100g vanilla marshmallow fluff

    Preheat the oven to 170 C, line two baking trays with baking parchment.

    Using a free standing electric mixer with paddle attachment, mix together sunflower oil, sugar, vanilla essence until combined. Add the pumpkin puree and egg, mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

    Sift together the remaining  ingredients , add to liquid mixture until even batter mixture forms.

    Spoon the batter on to the prepared trays in 16-20 mounds, each 3-5cm in diameter. The Whoopie Pies will spread during cooking, so keep them 2-3cm apart. Place in oven and bake for 10-13 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.

    Using free standing mixer with paddle attachment mix the butter and icing sugar until smooth, add cream cheese, continue mixing on a low speed, once combined increase speed for 1 minute. Add marshmallow fluff and beat until light and fluffy then place in the fridge for 30-40 minutes to set slightly.

    To assemble, take one sponge and spread 1 tablespoon of the filling to the flat side, then stick another sponge on top to create a sandwich. Dust the Whoopie Pies with icing sugar to serve.
