Banana Whoopie Pie Cake 

While grocery shopping this past week I discovered that bananas were on sale for .19 cents a pound. I knew this would be a great time to stock up for recipe testing, so I did. Do you remember that delicious chocolate whoopie pie cake I posted a while back? Well, I thought, how good would a banana whoopie pie cake be? So I rearranged a few ingredients, and to my surprise, the recipe turned out perfectly on the very first try. That doesn’t happen often,but when it does I celebrate!

This banana whoopie pie cake is everything that it should be. The cake is moist and banana-ie (I know that’s not a word but it should be!). And the filling is sweet with a hint of vanilla. These cakes are so easy to make. The hardest part about making them is flipping the one cake on top of the other. It goes much more smoothly if you say a little cake flipping prayer. At least that’s how I do it! =)

If you make my Banana Whoopie Pie cake I would love to hear how it turned out for you! =)

Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake 

(This is a recipe my mother found in an old church cookbook when I was a child and she has been using it ever since)

If you are a fan of whoopie pies, like me, but not a fan of making them, then you are going to love this recipe. This Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake is so easy to make and only bakes for about 15 minutes. The hardest part about making one of these cakes is flipping the one cake on top of the other. You have to wait until both cakes are cooled then spread the icing on one cake and flip the other cake evenly on top. It can be a little tricky! I usually say a prayer before doing this. It’s my whoopie pie cake prayer ūüėČ

As a child, I remember my mom making this Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake often, it was a family favorite. She told me that she wrote the recipe down from an old church cookbook years ago, so we are uncertain who this recipe belongs to. I remember her taking this chocolate whoopie pie cake to picnics and family gatherings and she almost always came home with an empty pan.

Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monster Chocolate chip cookies

 

 

Sometimes it’s just fun to eat an obnoxiously¬†big cookie. These cookies are just that! There is no rule that says you HAVE to make them this big, but why wouldn’t you? Sometimes you have to break the rules and make big cookies =P

I have been experimenting with these cookies a lot! Here is what I discovered.. If you bake them on an air-bake cookie sheet they get flat, still good, but flat. If you bake them on a dark cookie sheet that is NOT an air-bake they get more on the fluffy side. So it is up to you, do you like flat cookies or fluffy cookies? I like all cookies! flat, fluffy, big, little, I like them all. LOL. These cookies are also great to hand out as gifts. I like to make them and wrap them individually in plastic wrap.

Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

2 Cups (4 sticks) Butter

1/3 Cup crisco

1 3/4 Cup brown sugar

1 3/4 Cup sugar

4 eggs

3 tsp. vanilla

5 1/2 Cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 bags chocolate chips

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

In a large mixing bowl add butter, crisco, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Use a hand mixer to cream together. Once creamed together, add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well with a wooden spoon. Once everything is mixed well and it looks like cookie dough, add both bags of chocolate chips, mix well. Chill dough in the fridge for about 20 minutes. For monster cookies, drop by ice cream scoops full. Depending on the size of your cookie sheets, you may only be able to make 2-4 cookies at a time. For normal sized cookies drop by tablespoons full.

Monster cookies bake at 375 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until edges are brown and center is cooked.

* I always make the monster cookies, but for normal sized cookies bake at 375 degrees but reduce the cooking time. I would try 8 minutes. =)
