As we all know by now, Hostess bit the big one last year depriving people of Twinkies, Ho-Ho’s, Ding Dongs and a bunch of other high fat/high suger treats. Frankly, I can’t remember the last time I indulged in any of those. Some people, however, can’t seem to take the shock to their system caused by Twinkie withdrawal. Because of this a number of ass-holes on eBay have decided to sell the recipe (or approximation to it) hoping to suck in the unwary thinking that they’re getting a box of the real thing.
Okay, enough is enough. I am going to give that recipe RIGHT HERE for FREE! Take that eBay scammers!
Hostess Twinkie Secret Recipe
you will need:
spice bottle size of twinkie, 10 (12×14 inch ) pieces of aluminum foil ,
cake decorator or pastry bag. and a chopstick
4 egg whites one
16-ounce box golden pound cake mix
2/3 cup of water
2 teaspoons of very hot water
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of marshmallow creme (one 7-ounce jar)
1/2 cup of shortening
1/3 cup of powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Fold each piece of aluminum foil in half twice. Wrap the folded foil around the spice bottle to create a mold. Leave the top of the mold open for pouring in the batter. Make ten of these molds and arrange them on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan. Grease the inside of each mold with a light coating of nonstick spray.
Disregard the directions on the box of cake mix. Instead, beat the egg whites until stiff. In a separate bowl combine cake mix with water, and beat until thoroughly blended (about 2 minutes). Fold egg whites into the cake batter and slowly combine until completely mixed.
Pour the batter into the molds, filling each one about 3/4 of an inch. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
For the filling, combine the salt with the hot water in a small bowl and stir until salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.
Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy. Add the salt solution to the filling mixture and combine.
When the cakes are done and cooled, use a skewer or chopstick to make three holes in the bottom of each one. Move the stick around inside of each cake to create space for the filling.
Using a cake decorator or pastry bag, inject each cake with filling through all three holes. Serve & Enjoy 🙂
And now, I have served my fellow man…wait, wasn’t there a Twilight Zone episode about something like that?
