Whoopie Pan??

I feel like an idiot. I was reading Wheat Belly and ordering the suggested supplies and one was a whoopie pan. It looks like it's for small buns or something. Why did I order this and what am I supposed to do with it. TIA

is it silicone for the microwave or metal?

do you have a link to what it looks like?

I see some non-stick metal ones online. I imagine they want you to bake gluten free small "bread" or muffin rounds in them, no?

I have 2 non-stick whoopie pie pans. I make dh whoopie pies, complete with all the nasty sugar/wheat stuff, and then it's my turn! I use it for the Almond Flour Fudge Cake and Carrot Cake by Chicken Lady, pumpkin squares by Char, First Draft Corn Bread by Barbo, Cheesey Biscuits by ??? When my little cakelets are cooled, they are frosted and wrapped individually and frozen -- makes for easy portion control! The breads are cooled, wrapped and refrigerated -- again, portion control! If I want to, I can throw one or 2 in my bag for a snack when I'm away from home. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine! dianne

I don't think that I can link to it but it is a Wilton Nonstick 12-Cavity Whoopie Pie Pan. Thanks

Probably it was not specific in it's use, but more because people tend to like a uniform size and shape to things like the Atkins revolution rolls.
The picture looks like a muffin top pan.

The rounds are smaller than a muffin top pan.

Whoopie pies are 2 small cookies with whipped cream in the center, so these are purfect. I use them to make mock mint girl scout cookies. It works for a lot of things.
You'll use them.
They are also great to make ice cream sandwiches with.

This is true. I found whoopie pans and thought they were muffin top pans. It took me a long time to figure out why I got more buns, danishes, etc. than the recipe said. I even went and got another one because the recipes here always made 8-9 instead of 6 and I didn't want to make things in batches.

I also thought everyone was obviously eating MUCH smaller hamburgers than I was.

I just made 12 Marias Healthified Rolls in the whoopie pie pan and they turned out wonderful. They rose nicely up to about the size of a muffin, we split them in half and had great sandwiches. Very light and fluffy. Hubby told me to buy another pan.

I make whoopie pies in both muffin top pans and whoopie pans. The muffin top pans are great for burger buns, Char's danish and large whoopie pies and scones. The smaller whoopie pans are good for everything already mentioned. You will find many uses for them, they're also good for uniform sized cookies.
