Wow. Is there anything better than a childhood favorite remade? These Twinkie's are completely adorable! They are fairly easy to make, and totally worth the extra effort. So my Twinkie equipment came with this cute non-stick Twinkie pan!Last time I made Twinkie's with my good friend Lizzy, the pans were a complete pain to clean up. I don't know, maybe it was because angel food cake loves to stick to stuff, of maybe, just maybe its because I forgot to butter and flour my baking pan. Well this time, the Pan came out completely clean!! Ok so back to my Twinkie story... So I was in a mood to bake. One slightly huge problem, were out of eggs. . . NOO!!!! But I really wanted to bake something!! So I looked up what I could substitute for eggs. They said that you could Use two tablespoons of cornstarch for each egg. Hmm seems a little strange, but I will try it. So I mixed up my favorite supposed to be yellow cake recipe, and it was not yellow, and sorta really stiff.Well I continued with my adventure, and filled my pans that were carefully buttered and floured, hasty not to repeat a horrible pan clean up.
So I place them anxiously in the oven. They will turn out all right. . . wont they?
Well mostly yes, with a glitch. So near the end of the baking, I peeked into the oven to discover that they were puffed up huge, and then slowly deflating!!!! When they were slightly golden I took them out, and they deflated, leaving a crater in the middle.Well I guess that is what you get for using cornstarch instead of eggs lol. Well nonetheless I was determined to make awesome Twinkies! So it was a huge relief that the bottoms were still beautiful and golden.I let them cool wile I made some yummy vanilla frosting. Then I filled my frosting injector!So I took each Twinkie with care, and injected it with the frosting through each end, and once in the middle of the crater side, to ensure maximum frosting goodness. I still had tons of extra frosting, so I also drizzled the tops with frosting. What I thought was ridiculously cute was that my Twinkie kit came with an individual Twinkie holder, so as to not squish your Twinkie!
All you do is flip his hat off and insert Twinkie! So all in all it was a great success. My family loved them, eating all but two of them!In this picture, you can see how it looks when broken open.
Pure Twinkie goodness. If you want to make Twinkies, you can buy the kit I have at amazon.
