Red Velvet Woopie Pies


Prep time: 25 minutes
(plus cooling time)
Cooking time: 14 minutes
Total time: 39 minutes

Ingredients

75g unsalted butter, softened
125g light brown sugar
1 medium egg
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
175g plain flour
50ml buttermilk
1rbsp red food colouring (I used a natural food colouring)

For icing

50g cream cheese
30g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
225g icing sugar, sifted over the top (I forgot to do this for the picture, too eager to eat them ;)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Beat together the butter and sugar using an electric hand mixer for 2–3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined. Add the baking powder. Whisk in the flour and buttermilk in alternate batches on a low speed, starting and finishing with the flour – be careful not to over-beat. Whisk in the food colouring and a pinch of salt.Spoon the batter into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe the batter onto the baking parchment in small circles, about 2–3cm in diameter. Leave a 3cm gap between each as they will spread.Bake for 14 minutes, or until they’re puffed up and spring back on touching. Cool on the baking trays for at least 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. For the icing, beat the cream cheese and butter using an electric hand mixer. Add the vanilla extract and icing sugar. Beat on a low speed at first and increase the speed until the icing is smooth and fluffy. Use the icing to sandwich the pies together in pairs, with the flat sides facing each other & Enjoy!!
