      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pop the oven to 170°C fan and prepare flat cookie trays.
  2. Weigh the flour, caster sugar, bicarb, salt, cinnamon and cold cubed butter into the TM bowl. With the lid and MC in place, mix for 10 seconds/speed 5. Remove this mix from the TM bowl and set it aside.
  3. Add the banana and egg to the TM bowl and mix for 5 seconds/speed 5
  4. Return the dry mix to the TM bowl and set again for 5 seconds, speed 3; scrape down and repeat if necessary. We used a small ice cream scoop to portion out the whoopie pies, (if you don't have one use a couple of tsp's) leaving a space between them on the tray because they spread a little. Don't flatten them.
  5. I baked for mine 13 mins in my oven, rotating the tray at the 10-minute mark. We’re looking for them to be a light golden brown on the edges, and when gently pressed in the centre, they spring back.
  6. For the Filling
  7. Start by beating the butter until soft; I did 10 seconds/speed
  8. Then, add the Philly and vanilla and beat again until soft. For me 10 seconds/speed 5
  9. Weigh in the icing sugar and mix for 5 seconds/speed 5. scrape down and repeat if necessary.
  10. When the whoopie pies are cool enough, pipe a swirl on one disc and join a second on top. Now try one. I'm sorry. LOL, these are addictive.

You can freeze these whoopie pies either filled or unfilled, defrost in a sealed container in the fridge if frozen.
Great for lunch box treats.
We used a tiny ice cream scoop to dollop out our whoopie pies, but a rounded tsp will work fine if you don’t have one.
