i used to say "twinkies are made from scratch" when i got into 'cake mix' versus 'from scratch' debates--but i refrain from that these days--

 

however--

 

they are not only made from scratch they can be made on this for less than $15:

i just saw one at my grocery store for $19

but a twinkie is just vanilla sponge cake, isn't it? There have been baking pans for those on baking websites for years.  Which would be much easier to clean than an electronic unit.

i don't know, mb, it is a spongey cake though ;)

 

twinkie makers are garage sale fodder of the future but i think it's kinda cool and very silly--it'd be perfect for a dirty santa gift exchange--

 

and i'm curious about seeing the recipe

here's a recipe but i don't think twinkies uses unbleached flour--

using the twinkie name for this is what is fascinating me about getting the recipe

3 whole eggs

1/4 cup oil

Or

Made me laugh, Anna!

 

Twinkies to me are fake food. Real food spoils eventually. Twinkies are kind of suspicious. However, I have a genuine Twinkie brand pan and unfulfilled good intentions of making whatever flavor I want of those adorable Minion cupcakes. Mine is the pan from sets like this: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/hostess-twinkie-bake-set , but I just have the pan. Wilton just released a pan with a very similar shape, but not the Twinkie name brand on it.

The old Hostess Chocolate cupcakes & twinkies........It's the cream filling that makes them spectacular. & It's the cream filling that can't be duplicated at home. 

And Maraschino cherries........wonderful things last forever ( just like disco dust.)  Bury them out in the yard until spring thaw........still wonderful.

it might, anna, but i think i'd pop fifteen bucks for the recipe if i ever got to toys r us--

 

however the idea of me getting anywhere near even the parking lot of that store anywhere near christmas is unthinkable--

 

but i might take a leetle peak of the recipe book at my grocery store! i gotta see this --

 

my first love was the cupcakes--aka lunch in high school w/ a carton of chocolate milk and a candy bar

 

they were so fresh and good
