like Counter or cutting board

For a Softer crust cover with towel or brush with Oil or butter while

This one is a little more Advanced and Requires some special tools but I promise you its VERY tasty and pretty darn close to the actual product

Homemade Twinkies

*makes about 16 to 12 twinkies*

Ingredients for cakes:

(1) 16 oz box of Pound Cake mix – I used Betty crocker

4 egg whites

2/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Whip the egg whites until stiff. In a separate bowl,
mix the cake mix and water. Then fold the egg whites into the cake mixture,
then beat with hand mixer until combined. Fill the molds halfway and bake 22 – 23 mins.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took longer in the tin foil molds.

Ingredients for cream filling:

2 tsp hot water

1/4 tsp salt

2 cups marshmallow cream / fluff ( the whole 7oz jar)

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

For the filling, mix the salt into the hot water to dissolve.
Let it cool. Combine marshamallow, shortening, powdered sugar and vanilla in bowl and mix until fluffy.
Mix in the salt water.

When the cakes have cooled, poke holes into the bottom of the cakes
with a chopstick and wiggle it around to create a cavern inside the cake.
Fill with cakes with cream filling using a pastry bag.

These can be stored in a wax paper-lined container for a few hours before serving.
It helps if you let them sit for a few hours before eating since
the cream really melds with the twinkies.

{Potato pancakes}

1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 C. buttermilk
2 tbsp. butter

Jalapeño-Cheddar Corn Cakes (Savory Ebelskivers)

2 cups cornmeal pancake mix*

1 egg

1 1/2 cups milk

4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking

1/4 cup finely diced jalapeño

2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Directions:

In a bowl, whisk together the pancake mix, egg, milk and the 4 Tbs. melted butter.
Fold in the jalapeño.

Put 1/4 tsp. butter in each well of a filled-pancake pan.
Place over medium heat and heat until the butter begins to bubble.
Pour 1 Tbs. batter into each well and put 1 cube of cheese in the center of each pancake,
then top with 1 Tbs. batter. Cook until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy, 5 to 6 minutes.
