So Hostess Brands is closing down their company and shutting down factories around the country. The good news is that you can make your own Twinkies and that they'll taste BETTER than the chemical-laden factory-made Twinkies! Here's the recipe from AllRecipes.com:

Cake:

4 eggs

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled to lukewarm

1 cup water

1 (5.1 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

Filling:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

5 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted

1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 10x15 inch jelly roll pans.

Beat the eggs until combined; stir in the melted butter. Add the water, pudding mix, and yellow cake mix, stirring well to combine. The batter will be very thick. Divide the batter between the prepared pans, spreading it evenly.

Bake until the cakes spring back when pressed lightly with a finger or a tester comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.

To make the filling, combine the room-temperature butter, cream cheese, and confectioners' sugar. Beat until smooth. Stir in the whipped topping and vanilla extract.

When the cakes are cool, spread the filling mixture on top of one cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top of the first, and cut into bars. Wrap each bar in plastic wrap and store in the freezer.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

          We've got little polecats under the age of 8 and I do most of the cooking as Mrs. Polecat tries to stay sane while chasing them around.

          I do mostly organic and have found some great scratch recipes for things, but sometimes (rarely) a box mix will work it's way in.  The problem is cost -- you pay for convenience and even more for organics in boxes.

          Of course time is the other consideration.

            I've found myself not making the meals I used to make that would take hours to do. I just get tired and want to lie down to take a nap. So a lot of the meals I've been making usually are the quick kind where dinner gets done in 30 or 40 minutes.

              one tip is to try to make up stuff in advance that you can reheat.  But that can get boring if you aren't careful.

              Gets much worse when a lot of time is spent hauling around little people.

              For example: I'm pretty much sick of stir-fry at this point.

                do make-ahead meals by freezing them. Like the chicken pasties that I like to make, the lasagna spinach rollups, and lots of soup. So that way we can just reheat them in the oven or microwave while I'm breastfeeding.

                http://www.sophistimom.com/...

                I use the Wholly Wholesome Organic Pie Dough and rotisserie chicken leftovers as a shortcut in this recipe.

                •  Hey Slink. Some foods don't freeze/reheat well. (4+ / 0-)

                  I found this out a few years ago when my Grandparents started needing help. Every couple of months, some of the family would pick a weekend and cook, then portion and freeze those portions so all my grandparents had to do was defrost and reheat a fresh meal.

                  Before you create a full batch of any of your favorites (depending on expense too), you might want to try a smaller portion, freeze it and then defrost/reheat and see how it does.

                  One thing we found that never seemed to do well freezing and reheating was rice in a soup.

                  Great to hear you're planning to breastfeed. My ex did with our children and it was the best thing for them. If you haven't already, I would suggest getting some input from local breastfeeding support groups on pumps/machines too.

                  We always thought out choice was the best one for our children, but it was amazing to us how many people were actually very uncomfortable with breastfeeding.

                  Good Luck!

        •  There is nothing wrong with using box cake mixes (1+ / 0-)
          Recommended by:
          slinkerwink

          Just make sure it's Duncan Hines. Not all box cake mixes are made the same. Duncan Hines is by far the best tasting for some reason.
            Also to insure the cake comes out light and fluffy, sift the boxed ingredients at least three times before you do anything. Those ingredients have been sitting in a box for some time and everything has settled. Did you ever wonder why some cakes are heavy and just lay in your stomach like a rock? It's because people have made a boxed cake without sifting it.
             Now here is a trick. If you've ever wanted to make one of those grand layer cakes with whipped cream and fresh fruit, and you say I don't have all the equipment?
             Well if you have two round cake pans please grease and flour the pans before you pour the cake in it.
             Let the cake cool in the pan, then release it. You will notice immediately how higher your cake is because you've sifted it.
             Then put the cakes in the freezer over night.
             When you are ready to make the cake take it out of the freezer. Let it thaw a bit but not completely, just enough so you can first cut off some of the top if it's too domed. Then run your knife around the middle of the cake. Always work from the outside in. Don't try to cut in in half all at once. Then fill the cake.
            And of course you can do the same technique with a glass rectangle baking dish. I've done it. A square cake looks fancy especially around the holidays. Just after you split the cake in half initially so you have two square cakes, lay them on top of each other and trim so they are equal in size.

             I've never liked Hostess. My mom always made her own cream filled cakes and such. And it was made from homemade real butter cream.

            "is it REAL homemade, or home-assembled?"

            But it matters to me.

            My food allergies are to chemicals found in processed foods, and I react very badly to fructose.

            So I'm not being elitist, really.  If you made that cake at home with flour, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, etc. then I can probably have a small piece.  If you used a box mix and commercial icing, I can't.  And I don't like to have migraines rather than be polite.

            When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

    Twinkie Deconstructed I am very aware of the chemical laden recipe.  However, you just provided another chemical laden recipe.  Read the package labels for the ingredients in the instant pudding, cake mix and frozen whipped topping.  Add up all the chemicals and you are probably close to a Twinkie.  There was a whole chapter in the book on All-purpose (aka bleached and enhanced) flour.  That is what you will find in the cake mix besides other things.

    Bottom line, it is the crushing of unions and dumping 18,000 plus workers into the job search universe.

      I think that the dilemma needs further thought and we shouldn't fight each other on how we decide to handle it.

      My husband loves twinkies  and I like the idea of may be treating him with a homemade version.  We definitely will not buy any more twinkies, so I guess I'm cutting the nose off of the worker to spite the owner.

        Boycotts have impacts (which is why business hates them, and whines, and puts human shields out in front, and insists that they aren't really having any impact).

        But if you're not buying product A, and instead buying B, then the company that makes B is getting more business and hiring. So in the macroeconomic sense, it's all good.

        And if you think those folks who run the company that makes crap product A in an abusive manner, dumping toxins in the water, actually really give a crap about their employees... wanna buy a bridge?

          Leave the brands and the brand name toxic. Leave people empowered to make the kind of product they lost--only better--so that no one will even want to buy them if someone brings back the twinkie.

        How would you do a Twinkie, filled and with the three holes in the top ?

        •  I'd do it a little differently than the diarist (5+ / 0-)

          and a little more like my Mom used to do. I don't know if you've ever heard of "pie birds" -- ceramic figurines that you can bake into a pie to let the steam out so the top crust doesn't crack or burst.

          Mom used baking marbles instead, three to the section, in a corn-muffin "corn stick" pan (she made hot dog buns in the same pan, with no marbles). She used to butter the pan and marbles, and pour the batter not quite half-way-up the marbles. After baking, she took the marbles out and shot the filling in with this aluminum tube thing she had for making cookies or decorating cakes. It looked like a cartoon rocketship, with a plunger like a syringe and several tips.  

          Here's a good recipe for the cake part -- Mom never bothered with making it look yellow, but I know you can sub in up to a tablespoon of the liquid with carrot juice for color's sake:

          Homemade Twinkies
          Adapted from Gourmet Cookbook by Joy the Baker
          Makes about 12

          2 cups all-purpose flour    3 teaspoons baking powder
          1/4 teaspoon salt             10 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
          1 cup sugar                      2 large eggs
          1 teaspoon vanilla extract  1/8 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
          1 cup milk

          Put a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

          In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

          Beat together butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

          Beat in eggs one at a time, beating for 1 minute in between each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extract. Reduce speed to low, add half of the flour mixture, and beat until incorporated. Add milk and beat until incorporated. Add the rest of the flour, and beat until incorporated.

          Spray prepared molds with nonstick spray and divide the batter between them. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until the cakes are just slightly golden and a pick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before filling.

          Mom's filling was a tablespoon of boiling water, half-teaspoon of vanilla, a quarter-teaspoon of lemon extract, the tiniest pinch of salt, and a tablespoon of butter creamed into a box of 10x sugar ...

      Given the cake pan of the correct size, you just put your filling in a piping bag with appropriate tip and squirt it up in there. Like filling cream puffs.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

    about Twinkies.  The character named Tallahassee loves his Twinkies. It there's ever a sequel I'll bet he makes his own using this recipe.
