Learn how to make a coconut version of this popular gooey treat. This recipe will make about 20 coconut whoopie pies.

Step 1: Make the Cake

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 teas salt
1/2 cup flaked coconut
2 eggs
1 cup milk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teas coconut extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and coconut).
In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, oil, and coconut extract. Pour liquids into dry ingredients and beat until combined.

Using a cookie scoop, drop 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 7-9 minutes or until cakes spring back when touched. (My cookie scoop is about 1-1/4 oz or about the same as a rounded tablespoon.) Remove with a spatula and cool on racks.
i failed making this because 4 cups of flour was too much. the batter came out like a dough. i tried it again using 2 cups of flour and it came out ok. didnt really love this recipe. it could have been better.
I failed at making this because im dutch and in holland we dont use the words cup and teas, so i kinda screwed it up. but still it tasted very nice. Thanks for the recepy!
Thanks! This is great. I'm a coconut lover and I've been looking for a treat like this. I will try to make some tonight.
I made a mistake the filling came out as an very sugary hard "icing". Any ideas?
I suspect you made something a bit like royal icing so I but I don't know where it went wrong. You can try a different filling. How about trying a modified marshmallow fluff filling. Beat together 3/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, and 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff, 1 teas coconut extract
Awesome. I will try it today since I have to go to the store anyways. Thanks :D
gonna make today will send pic on how it looks when done using lemon extract instead dont got coconut hope it comes out good XD
Sounds really good! I will do this at some point. =D<br/>
