Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies Recipe

Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies

Who doesn’t love a whoopie pie?  I mean seriously, two cakes stuffed with some delicious filling for your own personal little some kind of wonderful?


Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies


I decided to take a walk on the wild side and make a whoopie pie a bit different than the traditional chocolate cake marshmallow filling variety.  Not that I normally need any particular reason to do something different, but today we are celebrating!

Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies

Jenna of A Savory Feast recently welcomed a baby boy into her family, so today a few blog friends and I are throwing her a virtual baby shower! If only we lived closer so we could all get together, but since we cannot, but here are some ideas for a smashing baby shower menu. We included a few of Jenna’s own recipes (without her knowing!) so be sure to give her posts some love!

Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies

I decided to use some blueberries to make a festive (and blue-ish) filling to put between some little vanilla cakes and it was a total win.  I made the cakes with a whoopie pie pan, so they came out of the molds the perfect size for a baby shower.

Cake recipe slightly adapted from King Arthur Flour

Notes

  1. Cakes can be made on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or slip mat
  2. You may need to loosen the cakes from a whoopie pie pan by lightly running a rubber spatula around the edges
  3. If the blueberry and lemon is too thick to puree, add a tablespoon of water
  4. I had leftover filling, so you would probably be ok just making half
  5. If you want to make them pink, substitute strawberries or raspberries for blueberries
  6. This recipe made 24 whoopie pies
