Hello, I was hoping you could find where a recipe came from for me. I received the recipe
years ago when someone made me a birthday cake filled with "twinkle filling". The recipe
3 c powdered sugar, 1/2 c veg. oil, 1/2 c crisco, 1/2stick soft oleo, dash of salt,
1 egg white, 1 t vanilla. Combine sugar thru salt and beat at high speed for 5 min.
then add egg white and vanilla and beat 3 min more.
I think it is delicious but I can not find it on the internet. I've seen the "twinkie"
copycat recipes that use marshmallow creme, but they do not have the same flavor. I just
wonder where this wonderful recipe came from and why I can't find it.
I checked for "twinkle cake" recipes and "twinkle cake filling" recipes, but I did not find anything
that fit your description. I searched, but could not find any recipe at all that had the precise
ingredients that you list. I also checked for recipes that were the same but used "margarine" instead
of oleo and "shortening" instead of "crisco", and "oil" instead of "veg. oil". No success.
The fact that your recipe uses the term "oleo" rather than "margarine" might indicate that it is an
older recipe. Indeed, you say that you received the recipe years ago.
A recipe is not going to be on the Internet unless someone posts it there. That's most likely why neither
you nor I can find it. The recipe could originally have been in an older cookbook or in a magazine or
something similar, published years before the Internet appeared, and no one has had cause to post it on
I will post this in case one of my readers knows anything about it.
