1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding
1 c. water
½ c. vegetable oil
1 T. pure vanilla
Grease & line with wax paper a 10×15 jelly roll pan. Mix together cake ingredients,
pour into jelly roll pan and bake at 350 for 27-30 minutes or until a toothpick
inserted near the middle comes out clean. Invert cooled cake onto wire rack. Using
an electric knife cut the cake into four squares. Take those sections and cut thru the
middle making a top and a bottom. Then cut pieces into long twinkie size shapes.
Using a frosting spatula spread filling on the bottom half of sandwich/twinkie then
place the top half on the twinkie. (You can also fill the larger squares with filling and
then cut into twinkie shapes).
8 oz. cream cheese
½ c. powdered sugar
1-1/4 c. milk
1 small box (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding
8 oz. Cool Whip
With a handheld electric mixer, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar and
blend until smooth. In a separate bowl combine milk and vanilla pudding then add
whipped topping. Add pudding mixture to cream cheese mixture and mix until
combined well. Spread in-between layers of twinkie cake.
*These are wonderful topped with fresh, sliced peaches!
