In honor of Valentine’s Day, Chef Roger Waysok of South Water Kitchen will be preparing a special Red Velvet Twinkie for guests on their Five-Course Valentine’s Day Dinner Pre-Fixe Menu. For those not in Chicago, South Water Kitchen has kindly shared the recipe below, which is easy enough for at-home chefs to replicate!

Red Velvet Twinkie:

  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbl cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbl red food coloring (chef normally uses beets but this is an easier version for the at-home chef)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup cake flour

Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 5oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2  cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Steps:

Beat egg yolks then add, sugar food coloring, vanilla. In separate bowl combine cocoa powder, flour, salt and baking powder.  Add flour mixture to egg mixture mixing just until combined. In separate bowl whip egg whites until stiff peaks. In batches combine whites with cake mixture folding gently to preserve the egg white fluffiness.  Put batter into desired pans sprayed with nonstick baking spray. Bake at 350 degrees until cake is fluffy and set. Combine filling ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth and spreadable. Once the cakes are cooled fill with cream cheese filling using a pastry bag and inserting into cake to fill.
