I bake for a living & these tasted pretty good! plenty of cocoa flavor. I sifted the cocoa, flour, etc before adding. I couldn't stop sampling the batter! It was sooo good. I followed a few tips from others reviewers. I added 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar instead of the 2 cups of white sugar. I also prefer butter to shortening but, I appreciate the lift shortening brings. So, I added half butter and half shortening. I tried a greased pan but it resulted in flattened cakes. The pan used with parchment paper gave me thicker cakes that didn't spread much. I also felt that they were a bit dry when baked at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. But, I did use my small batter scooper(3/4 tblspn). I only baked two pans worth about 8 per pan. I'm thinking about adding a little espresso powder to the remaining batter.
For the filling I used a marshmallow fluff recipe shared by one of the reviewers of the Oatmeal Whoopies. Once I put them together I froze them for about 20 minute to set.
