When I first started blogging many years ago this was one of the first recipes I shared.

The photographs looked like terrible vacation pictures. Bad lighting and even worse composition.

But you have to start somewhere don’t you? I hope I’ve grown as a writer, photographer and entrepreneur. For sure these pics are better!

Today I’m back sharing my Chocolate Twinkies Cake recipe.

Ingredients:

1 box cake mix
1 can frosting
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt


Ingredients:

1 box cake mix
1 can frosting
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Bake cake according to package directions. When cake is completely cooled, turn cake out of pan onto a large plate or platter. (i usually use a cutting board). if the cake is really moist, put the cake in the freezer for a couple minutes and it should pop right out!

Cut the thickness of the cake in half with a large knife or cake leveler. Using a second plate, remove the top of the cake and set aside. Flip the bottom half of the cake back into the cake pan. For this part, you can make the cake all fancy and do multiple layers if you want to.

In a medium saucepan cook 5 tablespoons flour, 1 cup milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt until thick. when i say thick, i mean kind of like a thin gravy. When it is too thick it doesn’t beat up as nicely in the end. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Let cool completely.
