How To Make A Twinkie
Well the Hostess Company is going out of business and people on people are buying Twinkies at lot! If you go to a store, you might see a person with a shopping cart loading with Twinkies and other things the Hostess Company use to make.
However, you do not need to be sad about the Twinkies because you can make them yourself and it is not that hard.
This is not my usual hub, but my daughter dared me to write it so I did!
How to make a Twinkie!
2 cups flour 3 tsp. baking powder 1/4. tsp salt 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs 1 Vanilla extract 1 cup milk
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and then sift the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and then set it aside. Then take a large bowl and beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy and pale. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time. ( Put each one in for one minute before you put the next one it.) Slowly add the flour and the milk. Keep beating until silky and smooth. The very last thing is to add the vanilla.
This part is going to sounds nuts, but it will save money and it really works! Take a regular baking sheet and put it down. Next, take a bottle of spice and wrap some tin foil around it. Take out the bottle of spice, the piece of tin foil should look like a very tiny bathtub . Then tighten the edges of tin foil to make sure it is tight.
1/4 shortening 1/4 cup margarine 1 cup sifted sugar 2 tsp. vanilla Beat together the shortening and margarine until soft and fluffy. Slowly put in the sugar, and the vanilla. Beat until little peaks that look like little mountains start to form. Then put the icing into those little tubes that a lot of people use to put icing on cake.
Bake your Twinkies for about 15 minutes. Let your Twinkies cool. Next take the tube and turn over your Twinkie, and put the end of the icing tube. The stab the bottom of the Twinkie in three spaces, try to poke and make a little space. The last thing you should do, is to take the icing and put it into the Twinkie.
Then eat and enjoy!
