Twinkie Cake Recipe : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

The previous couple of posts got me thinking. Years ago my aunt use to make a Twinkie Cake. It was a sheet cake that tasted just like the Hostess Twinkies. Well, what the Hostess Twinkies USE to taste like (or do they taste the same but it is just that I are older?). I would love to make one if someone out there would have the recipe. I think I recall you had to cook the filling and then add crisco or butter or something like that to it? Could that be true or am I just dreaming all this up - like how twinkies actually tasted good?????

Yes, Marty, I remember a cake like that too. I had completely forgotten about that! I would also be interested in the recipe. Hope someone out there has it.

I don't know the recipe, but the cake part is a sponge cake, a common recipe. Surely someone could figure out something for the filling?

I have had a recipe for years which I got from my mother both for the cake and the filling. However, the last time I made the cake it failed (last week) so I am going to try again. However, here is the filling recipe: 4 Tablespoons flour 1 cup milk 1 cup butter 1 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla Cook flour and milk over low heat to pudding stage. Let cool, stirring frequently while cooling. Beat butter in mixer until of whipped cream consistency. Add cooled pudding mixture. Gradually add sugar and vanilla.

I baked the cake in a 9x12, split it after cooling and filled it with the above. Finally, sprinkle sifted powdered sugar over all.

If anyone has a good sponge type cake I would appreciate getting the recipe. Mine was transferred from my recipe cards to our computer and I'm concerned that something is missing or wrong.
