If I told you the story of how I learned to make these, you wouldn’t believe me. It involved a neighbourhood called Dumbo and a flat right under Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn, New York City, followed by a whoopie party. There were lots of other things too, but these were ace, and far better than cupcakes. You can buy special whoopie tins online, or shallow Yorkshire pudding or bun tins work well. You can also bake them on a normal baking tray using an ice-cream scoop to shape the mixture, as the cakes keep their shape well.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
80g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
275g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
150ml buttermilk
150ml milk
150g granulated sugar
2 eggs
250ml double cream
3 passion fruits
icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven 180°C. Lightly grease a whoopie-cake tin or shallow bun tin.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, buttermilk, milk, butter, sugar and eggs to make a smooth batter. Divide among the tins and bake for 10 minutes, or until risen and golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, whip the cream to soft peaks. Cut the passion fruits in half, scoop out the seeds and fold them in.
  4. Sandwich 2 whoopie cake halves together with the passion fruit cream, then repeat with the rest of the cakes. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
