Hostess Twinkie Sponge Cake

“I found a treasure trove of recipes, which were developed by a lady named Gloria Pitzer, I have no idea, who she is, but when I got my hands on the recipe book, obviously from the 50's, I freaked out. This publication has recipes from places like Woolworth's Sears, and Hudson's Cafeteria, and many, many, more. I figured that the "Zaar" would be the place to preserve them. I haven't made them all, but I know they'll be good....Enjoy!”
