Milo Whoopie Pies with Condensed Milk Buttercream

Yum

The thought or mention of Milo always makes me happy!  So much so that when I found out how the Whoopie pie was named, I thought it was so SO apt! I had to make a Milo version of it! I found that it is a little too much for one person to eat. One whoopie pie would be best shared among 2 person. Or you can make each pie smaller. For those who are interested I got this from this website, ‘The recipe for whoopie pies has its origins with the Amish, and in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, it is not uncommon to find roadside farm stands offering these desserts. Amish cooking is about old recipes that have fed families for generations, with no trendy or cross-cultural fusions or mixtures. These cake-like whoopie pies were considered a special treat because they were originally made from leftover batter. According to Amish legend, when children would find these treats in their lunch bags, they would shout “Whoopie!”‘

Ingredients (About 15 large whoopie pies, about 3″ each)

  • 113g butter, soften
  • 180g brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Milo
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Condensed Milk Buttercream

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 to 1 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1.5 tbsp condensed milk

Preheat oven to 180*C
Mix Milo, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a big bowl.
Cream butter until light and fluffy.

Add brown sugar and cream until well combined.

Add egg, and vanilla extract and mix well.

Add 1/3 cup butter milk, mix well.

Pour in 1/3 of your dry ingredient mixture.

Alternate between buttermilk and flour mixture until well combined.

Batter should look like that.

Using an icecream scoop, spoon batter about a large ping pong ball size on to lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-15 mins on the mid to 2nd bottom rack.
Meanwhile prepare the filling!

Cream butter until light and fluffy.

Add in 1/4 cup icing sugar at a time until desired consistency. I used 1:3 ratio, 1 cup butter to 3 cup icing sugar.

Then add condensed milk and mix well. If too dry, add milk tsp at a time to thin out.
Chill in chiller.

When whoopie pies are done, cool it on a wire rack until completely cooled.
Then pipe or spoon in buttercream filling.

Sandwich buttercream with another cookie and there you have your Milo Whoppie Pie!

Bon appetit!!
