Healthy Bites > Gluten free recipe 8: Chocolate whoopie pies

125g butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups gluten-free plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
125g unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons cocoa powder, sifted

Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line 3 large baking trays with baking paper.
Step 2
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition (mixture may curdle). Meanwhile, sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl.
Step 3
Add half the flour mixture to butter mixture. Stir to combine. Add half the buttermilk. Stir. Repeat with remaining flour mixture and buttermilk until just combined.
Step 4
Spoon batter in a large piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe 32 x 3cm wide rounds onto prepared trays, 5cm apart, allowing room for spreading. Stand for 15 minutes. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until tops are firm. Cool on trays.
Step 5
Make Filling: Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in icing sugar and cocoa. Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 2cm fluted nozzle. Pipe filling onto 16 rounds. Gently top with remaining rounds. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
