Last week, Hostess brands announced they would be closing for good after a recent bakers strike. Millions of us grew up with these brands, and felt like a piece of our childhood has been taken away. This news lead to people hoarding Twinkies and even selling them on Ebay for $1,000 a box...I wish I would. So after a little digging, I found some pretty good copy cat recipes for Twinkies, Cupcakes and Snowballs. Even if you're not culinarily inclined, a night in trying to recreate these treats could be a lot of fun.
Here's what you need to get started:
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
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
