‘Twinkie’ Bundt Cake Recipe | Episode 1252


Hi guys, I’m Laura Vitale and on this episode
of Laura in the Kitchen, I’m going to show you how to make what Icall a Twinkie Bundt
Cake. Basically, it tastes like a giant twinkie,
now a twinkie is something that I didn’t grow up eating, but it’s one of those things that
when you run to Wawa and grab a couple of snacks, that’s one of the things that you
want to grab, it’s such a treat, I don’t eat it very often but I love making this cake
here because everyone loves it, it’s just really fun and it is really, really delicious
and so easy! Let me run you through the list of ingredients
for the cake, I’m going to walk you through it. What I have here is some vanilla cake mix. You can buy it pre-made or you can make my
vanilla cake mix recipe and you’ll need 3 cups of that, so either one box or three cups
of homemade mix. You’re going to need a little bit more sugar
because twinkie cake is really sweet. You need 4 eggs, a cup of milk and a half
a cup of melted butter, and a good splash of good vanilla extract because you really
want to drive home that buttery vanilla flavor, so if you are going to be using store bought
cake mix, don’t use the water, don’t use the vegetable oil, just use the ingredients that
I’m giving you, you just want three cups of the mix, that’s it you can make it yourself
or you can buy it. Everything goes into my standing mixer, I’m
just using a whisk attachment today, I also have my oven preheated to 350F and I have
a 10 cup bundt pan really well sprayed with non stick spray because we don’t want anything
to stick. I’m going to add everything in, this is going
to make a really rich delicious vanilla cake that we’re then going to fill with that marshmallowy
goodness that twinkies are known for, and a good splash of vanilla. I love using my homemade vanilla extract because
I want those vanilla beans running through it and there’s just nothing like it so a good
tablespoon of that. And now just whisk until it all comes together
and it’s nice and smooth. Oh this looks good, smells really good too. Okay, pour this mixture into your prepared
pan, and this just goes into your oven at 350F for, Iwould say abou 40 minutes or so,
45 minutes, or until it’s just fully cooked and I will show you what it looks like when
it’s there, you just want to make sure that you let it cool completely as well, because
otherwise, well you can’t fill it while it’s hot. So, let it cool completely, and then we fill
it. Alright, so I actually let my cake cool overnight,
it took about forty-some minutes to cook in the oven, I let it cool overnight because
it wasn’t cool by the time that I wanted to do it and I was like ‘meh I’ll do it tomorrow’
so. It’s perfect now, it’s nice and cold and you
need it to be really cold otherwise everything melts and yadda yadda. For the filling, you’re going to need very
rich and ridiculous items. Marshmallow cream, un-salted butter that’s
been softened, and a little powdered sugar. Yes it’s sweet, yes it’s indulgent. But like a twinkie, when do you really eat
it? Once every once in a while, it’s by no means
something that I look forward to on the weekends, it’s just one of those novelty items that
once in a while just hits the spot, if you know what I’m sayin’ so. I’m going to cream these together using my
handheld whisk, it’s going to be a little bit tough because marshmallow cream is really
sticky, so you’re going to have to be patient with it, but it’ll work you just have to let
it do it’s thing. Alright, now let’s work on the cake. You can use a melon baller if you want to,
Ijust use a small ice cream scoop because I can’t find my melon baller, works exactly
the same. You’re going to make a few holes, if you will,
in the cake right? Don’t go all the way, don’t pierce the top
of the cake but definitely go pretty far down because you’re going to need space. I do about 5 or 6, save these because you
need them. Depending on how big the melon baller is that
I’m using, now you have to keep in mind that this filling is very sweet and it’s also very
runny so you have to be careful because marshmallow fluff, that’s just how it behaves, but it’s
one of those things, like I said, once in a while kind of hits the spot, but you don’t
want to use a lot of filling is what I was trying to say. You don’t want to use a lot of filling, a
little bit will do because otherwise, it’s that overwhelming stickiness that nobody really
loves, let’s face it I know I don’t. So this might not look like a lot of filling
but it’s going to be plenty, and you only want to fill that about ha;f way and I’ll
show you why in a minute, you don’t want to fill it too much. Then you take this cake and you’ve gotta plug
them back in because otherwise your filling will kind of ooze out everywhere, so this
is going to be the bottom anyway so nobody’s going to see it. But you’ll be thankful you did it. Ta daa! [singing] Let me live, okay? This is my entertainment just as much as it
is yours. Alright, powdered sugar on top just because
it’s not rich enough. Am I right or am I right? [singing] Look how cool that is! See that? That’s cool you see how that starts to slowly
melt a little bit? You’re going to have to eat this right away
once you start cutting it because it doesn’t store really well unless you put this back
in the container upside down and that’s too much work. I say you make the twinkie cake to eat the
twinkie cake. Know what I’m saying? I gotta get a piece of this, alright. A little icing – I destroy things, I destroy
everything I touch. Man that’s good. That’s a throw back. Throw back to young Wawa days. Alright, go to LauraintheKitchen.com it’s
divine. No matter how rich it is, it’s worth it. LauraintheKitchen.com has got you covered
with the recipe, I hope you have enjoyed spending time with me and I will see you in the next
one. Bye!

  11. Dear Laura, I greet you peacefully. I want to thank you very much for putting so many beautiful, accurate recipes on. I need to stay at home most of the time due to a disease that I have, but I do try to cook as much as I can. I did not try this cake yet but I did try several of your recipes and they all were great. Last night I made the garlic knots you taught, with my own dough, and the family loved them. This morning I did my best to replicate the "Red Lobster biscuit" for breakfast and my guests loved them. If you have not done this one, maybe people want it. I wish you well and I ask God humbly to Bless you and your family. Sincerely, Jocelyn Sophia

  12. I’m not a Twinkie person, but I do appreciate your creativity, Laura! So, I probably won’t try this one. I do love your other treats- I’ve made your Zebra Cakes and chocolate chip cookie cheesecake for birthdays and they’ve turned out great! I feel like my bundt pan doesn’t get enough use, so keep the bundt recipes coming for summer, please.
