Well I have wanted to make these for the longest time and today with the rain and the cool weather why not? So I gathered all the ingredients. I got my recipe from the Chew show. They made them the other day. I had to make the little molds to put them in it was daunting but ok.
I also put some into cupcake molds to see if that will work after all it is just a shape. Wrong the cupcakes were to brown on the bottom and not as fluffy. So no go with the cupcake tray.
Nonstick cooking spray or vegetable oil
1/2 cup cake flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk, preferably whole
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 large eggs, at room temperature (separated)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
Filling Ingredients below
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Use aluminum foil to make molds or use mini loaf pans. I made the molds . There are a lot of ways to make the molds here is a link or two if you want to get industrious.
Make you Twinkies
Whisk the flour , baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside
Heat the milk and butter in a small sauce pan over low heat until the butter melts.
Remove from the heat and add the vanilla.
Let it sit
Put the egg whites in your mixer and beat till you have them just foamy
Now add 6 tablespoons of the sugar and the cream of tarter continue to beat till you get the nice soft peaks. Put this in a bowl and set aside
Now put your yolks into the mixer (Same bowl no need to clean it) and mix them with the rest of the sugar on medium high speed until it is thick and well blended. This take 4 to 6 minutes.
Turn off the mixer add about a ¼ of the egg whites and incorporate them
Now add the rest of egg whites but do not mix it yet
Grab the flour and sprinkle it on top of the mixture turn on your blender mix on low just until blended but not completely combined count to 10 and stop
Ok grab your butter mixture and make a well in the center of the egg mixture and pour the butter in
No more mixing fold this all together until the mixture is combined evenly
This is crazy cool it get’s like bread starter and is bubbly and light. Truly Twinkie magic. Fill the little molds about half way full.
Bake until the cakes are just light brown and they spring back
Ingredients for the Filling
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 ½ cups of confectioner sugar (Powdered Sugar)
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup of marshmallow fluff
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons condensed milk
In a bowl with a mixer beat the butter, confectioner sugar,vanilla extract ,salt and marshmallow fluff until blended. Add the cream and condensed milk and beat till just smooth. Transfer the frosting to a pastry bag fitted with a ¼-inch round tip. Or use a plastic bag with one corner cut out. Pipe frosting into three spots on the underside of the Twinkies, careful not to over fill . You think no stuff is going in but if you watch really carefully you will see the Twinkies expand slightly with the filling. Very Exciting.
