For your next vanilla cake baking adventure, why not try something different and transform a mundane vanilla cake recipe into a Twinkie layered cake? Better yet, this Twinkie cake is packed with Twinkie flavor without all the chemicals and calories of the nostalgic packaged desert.
Blogger Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen has created a cake recipe inspired by the notoriously popular fluffy, fried and delicious cream-filled pastries. Kristan combines a conventional box of vanilla cake mix to simulate the Twinkie's spongy dough and uses vanilla pudding, marshmallow cream and powdered sugar to replicate the creamy Twinkie filling. The recipe then essentially follows a standard cake baking recipe, and the finished product will taste like a bona fide giant Twinkie cake.
