  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cream Filling:

  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Buddy Valastro Homemade Twinkie Directions:

  • Fold a square sheet of aluminum foil in half lengthwise and then in half again to form a smaller square. Wrap the foil square around a 4-inch round spice container to form a canoe shape with the top left open. Remove the spice container and place the molds into a deep baking dish.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 and spray your molds with nonstick spray.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Reduce the speed and add the flour mixture alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Add the vanilla extract and mix until the batter just comes together. Do not over mix.
  • Fill your molds with batter and bake for 15 minutes and a tester inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool.

For the Filling:

  • Mix the hot water and salt in a small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved. Let cool.
  • Combine the marshmallow cream, shortening, powdered sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  • Add the salt solution to the filling mixture and mix.
  • Place cream filling in a piping bag. Insert tip into three sections along the flat side of the cake, about 1/8 of an inch deep.
