Homemade Twinkies

I got this recipe from my mom.  The kids thought these were awesome!  Thanks for the recipe, mom!





4 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup water

In a separate bowl combine:
1 pkg. instant lemon pudding
1 pkg white or yellow cake mix
Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until moistened. Pour batter into twinkie shape pan or cupcake liners in muffin pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. 

Filling
Mix and cook until thick:
5 Tablespoons flour
5 Tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
When cool add:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
*I added a little powdered sugar, just enough to make the frosting a little on the sweet side.

Beat with mixer at high speed. Should be white and fluffy.
Poke a hole in the center of each cupcake with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Fill cupcake holes with a decorator tube.

You can also do them in cupcake form:
