Recipes from the Cardinal: Imitation Twinkies

By on November 27, 2012

This Imitation Twinkie recipe can win over any sweet lover during this tragic time. It is served with confectioner’s sugar and whipped cream.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 sticks butter 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 eggs 1 can of quality whipped cream
  • 1 cup milk Crisco
  • 3 cups flour

What to Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a small breadpan and dust it with flour.
  3. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and salt in a bowl and beat until homogenous. Then pour into breadpan.
  4. Bake for 1 hour or until that familiar golden brown. Try the toothpick test: stick a toothpick into the loaf; pull it out. If any matter sticks to the toothpick, it isn’t done.
  5. When finally done, cut loaf into 1-inch slices, top with whipped cream and serve.

Just FYI:

For those who are lactose intolerant, substitute almond or soymilk for dairy in the breading. Marshmallow Fluff slightly diluted with water and beaten works well for the “filling.”
