My dearest husband is a snack cake kinda guy. He loves them almost as much as he loves me (He also loves chocolate and brownies). I however have never liked Twinkies unless they were the red velvet ones. He tells me stories of Suzi Q’s, King Dongs and Twinkies as he was growing up. Do you have a favorite story about snack cakes?
Around Christmas I saw a “Twinkies” maker at one of the local Walgreen’s Drug Stores, I didn’t buy it because honestly I didn’t think I would use it enough to justify the purchase. I did find a sponge cake pan that is the right shape and size as well as more within my budget, so I bought it. “How do Twinkies and brownies go together?” It’s my twist on a fun treat that will satisfy my husband and be on plan for me.
When I first started Trim Healthy Mama we tried the Secret Agent Brownie Cake (page 382). He wasn’t a fan, but we also didn’t let the cake sit overnight for the bean taste to diminish. My brain just kept churning with ways to find a recipe that works for both of us. The result was these yummy Sugar Free Chocolate Snack Cakes. And of course I had to fill them with my favorite part of a snack cake… the creamy filling. What is your favorite flavor or part of snack cakes?

I used this recipe from Grassfed Mama to fill the cakes. Substituting vanilla extract for her lemon extract.
But the possibilities of different flavors/fillings are about endless… Peanut Butter Whip would be pretty amazing also… you can find the recipe for it here , Or the Raspberry Curd Recipe I posted last week just to name a few. You really want to get one of these pans. I’ve put a link to it below this post.
