The Twinkie

I’ve never been a fan of Twinkies, always preferring chocolate covered Ho Hos or Ring Dings to the bland airiness of yellow sponge cake and suet.  That is, until I had Lulu Bakery’s version of the “twinkie”, which I now crave.  The mini loaf of tender yellow cake is injected with a tart passionfruit custard, with a minimal white chocolate glaze, it’s more like an embellished Tastykake than a Twinkie.  And in these cupcake crazed times, a refreshing change to the overloaded frosting heavy monstrosities.
