Apparently the reign of the cupcake is over. I’m obviously not hip enough to notice, but while the cupcake was looking all sweet and dainty a big, heavy, calorific, chocolate cake has stolen its crown. It is now the year of the Whoopie Pie. Another american dessert has found its way accross the ocean and become a British delicacy. Apparently even M&S are now selling them.
So when they featured a recipe for them on Something for the Weekend, I decided it was time to give them a try. They used all store cupboard basics and take no time at all to whip up and bake, the only trouble comes when you try to eat them. Wow, the are heavy. Two sides of dense chocolate cake, with marshmallow centre and more chocolate on top! Yum! But a very guilty pleasure. Best thing to do is find your sweetheart and split it with them as a cosy treat. They aren’t a dessert to be made every week but when your in need of a pick me up they are a good choice. Try them, they are something else altogether!
