  1. Well Sid, since you can't get Twinkies over there, maybe this will help ya out!!

    Top Secret Recipes version of Hostess Twinkies®

    The Twinkie was invented in 1930 by the late James A. Dewar, then the Chicago-area regional manager of Continental Banking Company, the parent corporation behind the Hostess trademark. At the time, Continental made "Little Short Cake Fingers" only during the six week strawberry season, and Dewar realized that the aluminum pans in which the cakes were baked sat idle the rest of the year. He came up with the idea of injecting the little cakes with a creamy filling to make them a year-round product and decided to charge a nickel for a package of two.
    But Dewar couldn't come up with a catchy name for the treat -- that is, until he set out on a business trip to St. Louis. Along the road he saw a sign for TWINKLE TOE SHOES, and the name TWINKIES evolved. Sales took off, and Dewar reportedly ate two Twinkies every day for much of his life. He died in 1985.

    This spongy treat has evolved into an American phenomenon, from which nearly everyone has slurped the creamy center. Today the Twinkie is Continental's top Hostess-line seller, with the injection machines filling as many as 52,000 every hour.

    You will need a spice bottle (approximately the size of a Twinkie), ten 12 x 14-inch pieces of aluminum foil, a cake decorator or pastry bag, and a toothpick.

    Serving: Makes 10
    Prep Time: 60 minutes
    Cook Time: 30 minutes
    Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Nonstick spray
    4 egg whites
    One 16-ounce box golden pound cake mix
    1/3 cup water

    2 teaspoons very hot water
    rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups marshmallow creme (one 7-ounce jar)
    1/2 cup shortening
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.
    2. Fold each piece of aluminum foil in half twice. Wrap the folded foil around the spice bottle to create a mold. Leave the top of the mold open for pouring in the batter. Make ten of these molds and arrange them on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan. Grease the inside of each mold with a light coating of nonstick spray.

    3. Disregard the directions on the box of cake mix. Instead, beat the egg whites until stiff. In a separate bowl combine cake mix with water, and beat until throroughly blended (about 2 minutes). Fold egg whites into cake batter, and slowly combine until completely mixed.

    4. Pour the batter into the molds, filling each one about 3/4 inch. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.

    5. For the filling, combine the salt with the hot water in a small bowl and stir until salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.

    6. Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy.

    7. Add the salt solution to the filling mixture and combine.

    8. When the cakes are done and cooled, use a toothpick to make three small holes in the bottom of each one. Move the toothpick around the inside of each cake to create space for the filling.

    9. Using a cake decorator or pastry bag, inject each cake with filling through all three holes. <

  2. Hey Indiana...where's the recipe for Zingers? LOL!

    I hope they have marshmallow cream in Scotland or poor Sid will never have a Twinkie unless we mail him one.
    If they do have marshmallow cream, Sid will probably start his own Twinkie shop and make hella money selling the fakes to people. LOL...fake Twinkies! That sounds funny.
  3. RMJL,

    Ask and you shall receive dear!!

    Dolly Madison® Zingers®
    (Devil's Food)

    Former U.S. President James Madison's wife did not create this baking company, despite the fact that her name is on every carrot cake, crumb cake, and Zinger that comes off the production line. It was instead company founder Roy Nafziger's brainstorm to use the former first lady's name, since she was notorious for throwing huge shindigs featuring a fine selection of desserts and baked goods. Nafziger said his company would create cakes "fine enough to serve at the White House." While I don't expect you'll be treated to a tray of Zingers on your next stay in the Lincoln Bedroom, I will agree that these little snack cakes are a tasty way to appease a sweet tooth. You can craft a version at home by making little cake pans out of aluminum foil that is wrapped around an empty prescription pill bottle. The cake batter is easy, since you just use any instant devil's food cake mix. I like Duncan Hines, but you can use whatever you want. As for the frosting, it may not come out as dark brown as the original since the recipe here doesn't include brown food coloring (caramel coloring). But the taste will be right on. And I think President Clinton would agree that as long as the sweet little treats taste good, appearance is secondary.

    Duncan Hines devil's food cake mix
    1 1/3 cups water
    1/2 cup oil
    3 large eggs

    2 teaspoons hot water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups marshmallow creme (one 7-ounce jar)
    1/2 cup shortening
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    1 cup powdered sugar
    1/4 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup
    2 tablespoons shortening
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    dash salt
    Tear off a bunch of foil pieces about this size. These will be your mini cake pans after folding two times and wrapping around a pill bottle.

    Empty prescription medicine bottles are actually good for something.

    Use a toothpick or skewer to dig three caverns in the cakes where the filling will live. Later you will cleverly hide these holes with frosting.

    1. Prepare the cake batter following the directions on the box. If you use Duncan Hines brand, you will need 1 1/3 cups of water, 1/2 cup of oil, and three eggs. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. To prepare the cake pans that will make cakes the size of Zingers, tear off 20 pieces of aluminum foil that are each about 8 inches wide. Fold the foil in half and then in half once more so that you have a rectangular piece of foil. Wrap this piece of foil around a small prescription medicine bottle. Tuck in the ends and take the bottle out, leaving the foil open at the top. This will form a little pan. Flatten the bottom so that the mini pan stands up straight. Place this into a baking pan and repeat with the remaining pieces of foil. When you have arranged all of the foil pans in a baking pan, spray the inside of all the pans with non-stick cooking spray. Fill each little pan about halfway with cake batter. Bake cakes for 15 to 17 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
    3. To make the filling, combine the hot water with the salt in a small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.
    4. Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy. Add the salt mixture to the bowl and mix.
    5. To make the chocolate frosting, combine all the frosting ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer until smooth.
    6. To assemble your snack cakes first poke three holes with a toothpick or skewer in the top of a cake and swirl around inside the holes making little caverns for your filling.
    7. Use a pastry bag with a small tip to squeeze some filling into each hole. Careful not to overfill, or your cake will burst open. Sure, it's exciting, but this mess won't make for a good clone.
    8. Once the cake is filled, use a butter knife to spread frosting on top of the cake over the holes. Drag a fork lengthwise over the frosting making grooves just like the real thing. Makes 20 snack cakes.

  10. LOL, poor Sid. :D Did you ever try to make these? Or did you ever hear back from the Hostess company? :D
  11. I can't believe they don't have Twinkies over there. Eh, your probably better off. ;)

    Damn, can't anyone send sid a couple packs of Twinkies? We wouldn't want him to make a stink. :D
  12. According to a Family Guy episode, theres a Twinkie factory in Naddick, Massachusetts.

    Sid, I'll be in school in Boston next year. If you send the shit to me, I'll deliver it to Naddick, and spray the Twinkie factory for ya.

    But only if you send me a few boxes of your bootleg Twinkies, with the special ingredients. Does it have anything to do with replacing the 1/2 cup of shortening with a 1/2 cup of "special" butter?

  13. lol ^ thats a great idea
