Homemade Twinkies (The Classic Twinkie Recipe)

image

We all have to admit that at one time or another that we’ve enjoyed a Twinkie or two (or 7 or 8). When I was a kid Twinkies didn’t taste like they do now. When I had a Twinkie as an adult, I was very put off by the taste and even the texture.

Recently I came across the old school, classic Twinkie Recipe in an Impulse buy at the Grocery Store. A Twinkie Maker. What a find! And I’m not talking about a boxed cake recipe either. I scored the Twinkie Maker Electric Cooker for $20

Twinkie Filling

1-1/2 Cups Flour
1 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 Cup Softened Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1 Egg Yolk
2 TSP Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup of Milk

Cream Butter and Sugar together in a large Bowl. Add Eggs, Egg Yolk and Vanilla to the Creamed Sugar and mix well. Once completely mixed add Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Milk and mix together until well mixed.

I have an electric Twinkie Maker but you can also use Something like this instead.

In the Twinkie Maker I sprayed my mold with Olive Oil and I cooked mine for 7 minutes. If you are pan cooking, you may need to adjust your cook time. Cook at 350° in a traditional oven until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

When they have completely cooled you can fill them with Twinkie Marshmallow Fluff Filling.

Stay tuned…this isn’t the only awesome junk food cooker I picked up.
