If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen images from our family vacation to Maine. If not, don’t worry, I’ll share more on our trip very soon!

However if you did see them, you probably noticed the repetition of lobster, blueberries, and whoopie pies. Maine is not only known for its fresh seafood, it’s also known for its abundance of summer blueberries.

And although I hear this is somewhat disputed, Mainers firmly claim to be the state to invent the beloved Whoopie Pie.

As the story goes, a homemaker in Maine consistently used a cake recipe that produced more batter than her cake pans would allow. As to not waste the batter, she decided to pour it onto baking sheets to bake small round flat cakes. Then she sandwiched cream filling in between two cakes, thus making Whoopie Pies. This trend caught on, and nowadays Whoopie Pies are considered the statewide snack of choice in Maine.

If you happen to come from a state that also lays claims to Whoopie Pies, please take it up with the Mainers, not me. I’m just a messenger. *wink*

While in Maine, we enjoyed a wide array of treats containing blueberries, and quite a few whoopie pies as well. Yet it wasn’t until our last stop that I noticed freshly-baked blueberry whoopie pies in a bakery window.

Brilliance. Soft tantalizing cakey brilliance.

I knew the moment I returned home I would be baking up my own rendition of this wondrous treat. So today I’m sharing my version, a Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pie Recipe with silky lemon filling.

This Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pie Recipe starts with a vanilla batter that has the same consistency of a butter-based cake batter… Thick and easy to scoop. Not pourable like an oil-based batter. Yet, definitely not as firm as a cookie batter.

I mixed the blueberries in by hand as to not squash them. Then made sure to have extras on hand, so that the tops were well endowed with blueberries.

Make sure to allow plenty of space for the Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pie Recipe to spread out while baking. Eight or nine per sheet is about right for most baking sheets.

Once the whoopie pie cakes are completely cool, beat together a quick zesty lemon filling.

Flip half the cakes over and pipe the filling on the bottom sides. Then top each whoopie pie with another cake, and they are ready to serve.

This Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pie Recipe is truly amazing, if I do say so myself. Each little sandwich treat is ultra tender, packed with berries, and perfected by the tangy-sweet lemon filling.

If my family’s response is any indication, I think the Mainers will approve.

    Never heard the story of whoopie pies. These look amazing and I love that lemon filling!

  14. Brendaposted September 1, 2015 at 4:10 pm Reply

    Can I use any other kind of berry? I must try this but there are no blueberries :( .

    • Sommerposted September 2, 2015 at 8:59 pm Reply

      Hi Brenda, I’ve only made them with blueberries, but I’m sure other berries would work. The smaller the better, so maybe try raspberries!

      • Dianne Paineposted September 21, 2015 at 10:10 pm

        I am from Maine and I think your recipe sounds amazing, cannot wait to try.  The chocolate whoopie pie sometimes has a white creamy frosting and they add raspberries to it.  Awesome taste, but I recommend keeping them in the refrigerator

      • Sommerposted September 22, 2015 at 11:38 pm

        Thanks for the tip Dianne! :)

    These look delicious! Quick question – should the leftovers be kept in the refrigerator (because of the icing), or is it okay to leave them covered with plastic wrap out on the countertop? Can’t wait to try them!
