I’m sure my household is not the only that acquired an Easy-Bake Oven over the holidays. For those of you who have fond memories of the oven, it now comes with an actual heating element inside instead of the famous lightbulb.
If you don’t want to fork over the dough (couldn’t resist!) for the official Easy-Bake mixes or would like to expand your repertoire beyond yellow cake, sugar cookies, and chocolate frosting, Recipezaar has over 50 fun recipes for your Easy-Bake Oven. (Note: a couple recipes in this category have slipped in under the "easy-to-bake" rubric, but the majority are for the pretty pink oven.)
If you have cake mix at home, here’s a do-it-yourself recipe: Mix 1/4 c. cake mix–any flavor; 1 scant Tbsp. water , 3/4 Tbsp oil, 1 Tbsp egg product. Pour into greased Easy-Bake pan and bake for 12 minutes.
