I am looking for a good box mix whoopie pie recipe. I would prefer not to use butter due to high food cost. I tried the recipe below but I did NOT like it. Came out way to flat and not fluffy or tall like I would think a whoopie pie should be. I had come across one that said to add self rising flour, but now I can't find it ugh!

BAD RECIPE
1 boxed cake mix (I've made this with different cake mixes...chocolate, lemon, spice, Strawberry and my favorite, Red Velvet)
shopping list
3 eggs shopping list
1/2 cup water shopping list

The "bad" recipe doesn't include any fat (shortening/butter/oil) so that might be a factor....

Found a similar recipe to yours, but it includes 1/2 cup oil:

(Got good reviews using recipe with oil.)
