Hostess may be on the way out but that doesn't mean you'll never eat another Twinkie again. Instructables user scoochmaroo decided to not only create a Twinkie recipe you could create at home, but one that's better than the original.
Naturally, anything freshly baked ought to be better thank a Twinkie (seeing as its shelf life is most likely longer than your own), and we've posted a regular recipe before, but in light of Hostess' bankruptcy and one person's quest to replace the Twinkie with a better, homemade version, it seemed like a good thing to share. Schoochmaro explains:
Now, this is not the same Copycat Twinkie Recipe you will find all over the internet. This Twinkie recipe came from hard work and laborious testing (of the other various copycat twinkie recipes posted all over the internet). This Twinkie recipe combines the winningest recipes for best cake and best filling from the Epic 2010 Homemade Twinkie Challenge. Finally, I have combined the two in one ultimate Twinkie Recipe, guaranteed to please
So don't take Hostess' departure as bad news. Use it as an opportunity to learn to make a better snack. And if that's not your cup of tea, maybe someone will pick up the charge and keep processed Twinkies alive.
