Cheap Easy Bake Oven Recipes

Our daughter got an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas and promptly lost her only package of cake mix. I knew that you could buy packaged mixes for the oven but I was looking for something a little more frugal. I also thought it would be more fun if she could do more than simply add water and mix. Both of our kids have already been helping out in the kitchen for a couple of years. It seems natural that they should want to do it completely on their own. So, here are some of the recipes we found. Make sure to preheat your Easy Bake Ovens for at least 15 minutes.

  1. Cake: One of the easiest recipes simply involves using traditional boxed cake mix. Take 3 tablespoons of cake mix and mix with one tablespoon of milk. Pour into greased pan and bake for about 15 minutes.  Average price for Easy Bake Cake mix is around $5.50. You can buy a full size cake mix for this price and can find cake mix on sale for a couple of dollars.
  2. Children’s Cookie Mix
    • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar — packed
    • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening

    Combine ingredients in a bowl until mixture is thoroughly mixed. Divide mixture by 8 and store in airtight containers for up to 12 weeks. One mixture pack will make about 9 cookies. To use mix, combine 1 mix pack with 2 teaspoons water.

  3. Brownies
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 4 teaspoons chocolate syrup
    • 2 tablespoons flour

    Combine ingredients until batter is smooth. Pour into pan and bake for 12 minutes.
