Twinkling Good Vanilla Snack Cakes
45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
13 ingredients
12-15 servings
Got this recipe from King Arthur Flour and looks so good, like those twinkies from when I was a kid. Described as soft, springy and full of rich creamy white filling that will bring you right back to Saturday morning cartoons and school lunch boxes - without the chemical additives. These cakes won't last through a nuclear winter like the urban legend says, but are so good they will disappear in a twink of an eye. While I've ordered the special pan (called a canoe pan) to make them; at the bottom of the directions are tips to make them as cupcakes or for that really special treat as a Banana Split Snack. Finally made these and they went together easy and were a big hit at my DGS's birthday party.
