Twinkie Cupcake Recipe

Saturday, February 23, 2013
A retired for a good old faithful friend of the past, the Twinkie. A taste from those childhood years.

A cake that came in a box that was back then a wonderful treat to have. We didn't have them very often as that was not part of the budget.

For me, that delicious delicate sponge cake, filled with a marshmallow buttercream kind of frosting was what I asked for when we had that extra money.





















Twinkie Cupcake Cake Batter



6 eggs separated

6 tablespoons water

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cup sifted flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons cornstarch

pinch a salt

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Beat whites until very stiff, set aside.

Beat yolks in a separate bowl until thick and lemon-colored. Add sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, sifted flour and flavoring.

Gently fold in egg whites until just blended. Pour into cupcake lined pans ( I use a little cooking spray in each bottom so the paper won't stick.) Bake around 25 minutes on a preheated oven of 350 degrees. Cool completely. Core the center of each cupcake with an apple corer or sharp knife.

This makes around 48. I have never cut it in half not sure the outcome.

Marshmallow Filling Recipe:

2 teaspoons boiling water plus 1/4 teaspoon salt (added to the water)

2 cups marshmallow fluff

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup powdered sugar or more depending on how thick you want this

1 teaspoon clear vanilla

In a heavy-duty mixer whip the shortening adding the sugar a little at a time, whip for around 4 minutes until smooth. Add the vanilla, water, and salt. Add the marshmallow fluff slowly beating until smooth and well blended together for around 1 minute.

Place in a pastry bag to pipe into the cupcake centers or use a ziplock bag and snip the end off to fill easy.

  1. Twinkies will always be a fond memory for me. My dad would bring one of the two in his lunch pack home for me. In recent years, they haven't tasted the same. I am bookmarking this to make in the near future. Thanks for the memories and the great recipe, Claudia.
