directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

In medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until mixed; beat in milk. Slowly add half of the flour mixture and then add yogurt. Add remaining flour mixture. The batter will be very thick like a frosting.

Step 3

Line baking sheets with parchment paper; use a small melon baller to drop batter onto baking sheets, spaced about 2-inches apart. Bake for 6-8 minutes, depending on size of cakes, being careful not to burn the bottoms. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Step 4

For filling, beat ingredients until fluffy. Add more sugar if you want a thicker filling.

Step 5

Spread generous amount of filling between the cooled cakes. Makes 2 dozen mini whoppie pies.
