Easy Bake Oven Recipe Links & Gift Idea (and an Easy Bake Microwave Kit!)

Here are a few links that will allow you to enjoy an Easy Bake Oven with your children for much less than the price of the Easy Bake Mixes:

Easy Bake Oven Pizza

Easy Bake Oven Recipes a large index of recipes

Make Your Own Easy Bake Oven Mixes This uses store bought mixes to keep the preparation time down while still saving money.

A good rule of thumb is 3 tbsp of any commercial cake mix with 1 tbsp milk. 

A nice gift idea or stocking stuffer would be to make up little bags of premeasured cake mix for the Easy Bake Oven.  You could even make your own gift basket for the Easy Bake baker in your life with added extra ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts (watch for allergies), sprinkles, etc. You can also include inexpensive child sized utensils for baking. (I save my smaller mixing spoons for the little girls.)

Did you know Easy Bake has microwave kits? When you have a large family and a child who is determined to bake a treat for each member, a parent will be spending a good amount of time supervising. The microwave kit will speed things up considerably. This is the kit I purchased for my girls: Easy Bake Microwave and Style: Trendy Tastes We are using it this weekend.
