For this month’s Home Baker’s Challenge, our host of the month Nalini Suresh @ Nalini’s Kitchen chose 5 spooky & yummy Halloween treats. When I saw the challenge the beginning of the month I felt like I should make all of them. But of course time slipped through my hands and in the end I was scrambling to find time to make at least 1 of the treats. After much deliberation, I ended up making these Halloween Whoopie Pies.
I’ve never made whoopie pies and this challenge gave me a chance to make these cakey cookies. I didn’t have orange nonpareil, so used yellow glittering sugar which doesn’t make the whoopie pies look too Halloween(y). In any case whoopie pies turned out great and we all loved them.
Original recipe makes 12 Whoopie pies and used 1 egg. I halved the recipe and made it eggless by using egg replacer powder. The pies still turned out moist, soft and fluffy.
For 1 egg use 1tbsp egg-replacer mixed in 3tbsp water. To halve the recipe, use 1½tsp egg-replacer mixed with 1½tbsp water.
