Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk, room temperature

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, espresso powder and salt. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), cream together the butter and brown sugar, about 1 minute. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture in three parts, alternating with buttermilk (so add one third flour mixture, half cup buttermilk, another third flour mixture, half cup buttermilk and finish with remaining flour mixture). Combine well after each addition.
Transfer batter to a frosting bag fitted with a round tip.* Pipe batter into circles two inches in diameter on the prepared baking sheet (each about three inches apart as they will spread slightly). Bake until tops are puffed and cakes spring back when touched, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before filling.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These whoopie pies are always a huge hit whenever I make them. I wonder if it's because I tend to get a bit heavy handed with the Baileys! On another note, I use my middle sized cookie scoop to firm the cakes, thusly producing 12 Whoopie pies.
