How to Make Hostess Twinkies


  • 1For the Cake:
    Combine the cake mix, pudding, milk and eggs together in a medium mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Pour batter into lightly greased canoe pans to about half full. Bake in preheated oven according to cake mix directions for cupcakes, about 18-21 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • 2For the Filling:
    Combine water and salt in a small glassand stir until salt dissolves. Combine all other ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and beat until fluffy and light. Add salt water mix to batter and beat until creamy.
  • 3Spoon cream mixture into piping tube and using the long piping attachment insert tube into the end ofthe twinkie and fill as you pull out from the center. Do this on both ends being careful not to let it blow out on you. Then EAT EM!
  • 4Additional Tip:
    To get the results for the other Hostess cakes you love, follow the same concept above but substitute the yellow cake for a Devils Food cake and the vanilla pudding for chocolate. For Suzy Q cakes, divide the batter between 2 9x13 inch pans and bake 12-18 minutes or until done, frost the top of one of the layers with the cream filling and place other layer on top. Cut into slices. For the others, use a dark chocolate frosting, softened in the microwave and spoon over tops of the chocolate twinkies filled with the filling... ENJOY! and save your money
