Talent, good looks, charisma. And a penchant for peanut butter, honey, bacon and banana sandwiches which were browned in a frying pan.
It’s a concoction that’s immortalised as the Elvis (or sometimes the Memphis) across many States of the US.
And so in tribute to the memory of a legendary fellow Mississippian, celebrated artisan bakery Outsider Tart presents its spin on a classic snack – the Elvis Whoopie Pie.
Two large soft cakey baps are sandwiched together with a thick creamy filling of peanut butter, honey and the very best pancetta.
“Elvis’s fondness for peanut butter and banana sandwiches is legendary. Our Whoopie pie version is more than fit for a King. I’d certainly have it as my last meal.” says Chief Froster David Muniz.
US style boutique bakers Outsider Tart were the first to start selling Whoopie Pies in the UK this time last year.
The hockey puck size pies, a classic Amish snack, come in seven other flavours including chocolate and oatmeal and pumpkin, and retail at £3 each.
The Elvis is now available from Outsider Tart’s Chiswick store, London Farmers Markets, or you can order via phone or the website. Delivery is available across the London area.
