    Smile1968's Note:

    This is an Excellent cake! I get requests from my co-workers all the time! One of the great things about this cake is that it can be inter-changeable. You can be creative and use whatever flavor cake mix you like, and you can change the flavor of the filling. You can also make this in a 9x13 pan, mini loaf pans, or mini muffin pans (my new personal favorite!) Try this cake and your kids will love it! It is also a great cake for parties or get togethers. Enjoy!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix or 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box chocolate cake mix
    • 1 1/3 cups water
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    • 3 large eggs

    Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      I listed the ingredients from a Duncan Hines cake mix, so you will need to follow the directions on which ever cake mix you use.
    2. 2
      Mix well,then pour batter into wax paper lined 9x13 pan. Then bake, let cool and remove from pan.
    3. 3
      Slice lengthwise with thread or knife. Spread filling between layers and sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
    4. 4
      Filling directions: Combine flour and water, cook until thick, cool in refrigerator, combine sugar,margarine,shortening and vanilla. Beat until thick and fluffy. Add cooled mixture; Beat again until fluffy and spread filling between layers. If it looks curdled, you need to beat it a little longer.
    5. 5
      Like I told you, you can make them into little loaf pans or mini muffin pans. Use a pastry bag to pipe the filling into the cakes.
    6. 6
      You could be creative and add cocoa or strawberry jelly to the filling.
    7. 7
      I try and sprinkle the powdered sugar on them just before I serve them as the sugar absorbs into the cake over a short period of time. You can refrigerate them (thats the way I like them, or frozen) but they are fine left out on the counter for a day or so.
    8. 8
      I am just guessing on the servings, it all depends on the pans you use. I think I get between 25-35 mini muffins out of 1 cake mix,1 dozen mini loafs and I am just approximating on the 20 slices in a 9x13. Also, to be honest, I am not sure the amount of time it takes to make them. The baking time is also a guess depending on which size pans you use. I make the filling while the cakes are cooking.

      We didn't care for this much. It was kind of bland and didn't really taste like a Twinkie at all.

      I chose to make a two-layer round cake instead. Very good!
