Homemade Hostess Cupcakes: Copycat Recipe

In the end, my birthday boy got his cupcake experience.


By Ole & Shaina Olmanson, Babble

It occurred to me the other day as we walked through our neighborhood Target that my son had never had Hostess Cupcakes before. Not only has he not had Hostess Cupcakes, but he hasn’t had a single Hostess brand treat. We just don’t buy them.

We try to avoid processed food whenever possible, but additionally, we don’t eat sweets all that often. I figure the kids get sweets often enough at school and church events to make up for my lack of everyday baking. Really, though, my newly 6-year-old son refused to eat cake or go near frosting. It’s only recently that he’s had a change of heart.

Seeing as it was his birthday and he was asking me all about the Hostess Cupcakes on the end cap at the store, I agreed that we could instead make them together, our very own Homemade Hostess Cupcakes.

In the end, my birthday boy got his cupcake experience. He accepted it with a smile and ate it right up, smiling all the way.

For the cupcakes:

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
3/4 cup Dutch process cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup hot coffee

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl sift together sugar, flour, Dutch process cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla and then add into the dry ingredients. Whisk in the hot coffee.

Fill lined muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

For the filling:

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup marshmallow creme

In a medium bowl, beat together all filling ingredients. Fill a large piping bag. When cupcakes are cool, press tip into the center and squeeze 1-2 tablespoons of the cream filling into the center. Repeat for all cupcakes.

For the ganache:

3/4 cup cream
7 ounces chocolate

Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat stirring frequently until the cream is hot and just starts to boil. Immediately pour the cream over the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Spread warm but slightly cooled ganache over the tops of the filled cupcakes.

For the icing:

1/2 stick butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2-1 tablespoon milk

Once the ganache is set, whip together all icing ingredients until smooth, adding more milk if necessary. Fill a piping bag and pipe on the curls or write fun messages on your cupcakes.

Makes 12 homemade Hostess cupcakes.
