Ooh, Twinkies, how I love thee. Creamy, fluffy filled goodness! I gotta tell ya, my Twinkie cravings cannot be fixed but the boxed variety anymore. Not since I met this TWINKIE CAKE!
Let’s get started:
How to Bake a Cake
Preheat the oven.
Get out the bowl, spoons and ingredients. Grease the cake pans.
Remove 18 blocks and 7 toy cars from the kitchen table.
Measure 2 cups of flour. Remove Baby’s hands from the flour.
Wash flour off.
Measure 1 more cup of flour to replace the flour on the floor.
Put the flour, baking powder and salt in a sifter.
Get the dust pan and brush up pieces of bowl which Baby knocked on the floor.
Get another bowl.
Return to the kitchen and remove Baby’s hands from the bowl. Wash Baby.
Get out egg.
Return and locate greased cake pans.
Remove pinch of salt from the pan. Look for Baby.
Get another pan and grease it.
Go wipe a hiney. Wash hands.
Return to the kitchen and find Baby.
Head for Baby who flees, knocking bowl off the table.
Wash kitchen floor, wash the table, wash the walls, wash the dishes.
Call the bakery.
HAHA, that is so the story of my life!
Now for the real recipe:
- 1 box Butter Cake Mix, 18 Ounce Box
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Butter, Melted
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 3 whole Eggs
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease and flour two 9-inch round pans, or spray with baking spray with flour.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl constantly (batter will be thick). Beat 2 minutes longer. Pour batter into the prepared pans. Bake as directed on cake mix box.
Cool cake, then frost with the following recipe which is called: “That’s The Best Frosting I’ve Ever Had.” (it’s true)
That’s The Best Frosting I’ve Ever Had
- 5 Tablespoons Flour
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 cup Butter
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar (not Powdered Sugar!)
In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. You want it to be very thick!. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. (If I’m in a hurry, I place the saucepan over ice in the sink for about 10 minutes or so until the mixture cools.) It must be completely cool before you use it in the next step. Stir in vanilla.
While the mixture is cooling, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You don’t want any sugar graininess left. Then add the completely cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture and beat the living daylights out of it. If it looks separated, you haven’t beaten it enough! Beat it until it all combines and resembles whipped cream.
Spread on your first Twinkie Cake, top with second and cover in this frosting. Amazing!!!!!!

I am SO intrigued by that frosting using granulated sugar! I’m going to have to try that!
No doubt, you’ve experienced the first ‘baking a cake’ process more than once huh? = )
I’ve seen a ton of recipes, but don’t ever remember one for this yummy looking cake, and want to try it soon. So glad you shared..MMMM!
OMG! That’s it, I’m going to buy some round cake pans and make this. Thanks for sharing T!
LOL! Happy Baking! 🙂
Oh does this ever look Amazing !
I can not remember a time that I didn’t love Twinkies !
Thanks much 🙂
Love your Blog I always read every post and always enjoy!
Love it!!! I only have one and it still feels like I can’t ever get anything done without her getting into something/trouble!!! That cake sounds delicious, I’m going to have to try that. When Ade goes down for nap 🙂
Twinkie cake is a favorite at the Wolfe household! This frosting is also very good on Red Velvet cake instead of cream cheese like most people use.
Thank you so much for linking up to Sharing Sundays. I always wanted to try a frosting recipe that doesn’t use powdered sugar. I didn’t know one existed. Can’t wait to try this.
We are featuring your Twinkie Cake this week!
Thank you, Ellen! I will come check it out. Tomorrow I assume?! I am honored, thanks! Tonya 🙂
