Can the packaged Betty Crocker cookie mix be scaled down to use with an Easy Bake Oven?
Wow! This brings back fun memories of when some of my friends' kiddos were young!
We used to make the entire mix in a bowl following the standard directions, then filled the little pans the oven came with and followed directions for baking like we used their mixes.
I want to say a regular box mix made 5-6 little cakes...its been a long time ago. It was time consuming, but fun....we would ice them while the next ones were baking (after cooling time of course).
Yes you can do this. I find out that it was easier to just make the entire box and allow my daughter to bake what she wanted in her oven. I would use the rest of the mix and bake it in my oven. There were times that she had a lot of friend over and each one wanted their own cake so this took the box to make them all. I would just make up the box it seems to work better than trying to scale it down.
I need Easy Bake Oven recipes that do not need milk or cocoa.
My niece loves her Easy Bake Oven, but the kits cost 6.00 each! Is there a way to make my own "kits" to give to her?
Give Jiffy brand mixes a try. There all kinds. Just go to www.jiffy.com. there is also a recpe book they will send you for free. She can use one mix and use the pans that come with her easy bake oven. I am not sure how many she can get out of one mix, but she could probably make layer cakes and use a frosting mix. She can bake corn breads. The blueberry mufin mix would make nice snack cakes.
When making the Easy-Bake chocolate cake what is the shortening for?
This is the best chocolate you will ever make. See if you can all the math skills you ever learned and cut it down to size for an Easy-Bake oven.
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp soda
1 TBLS vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup veg oil
1 cup cold water
Mix all ingredients together til smooth. bake in 9" pan, for 30-35 mins at 350 degree.

I was wondering if anyone has recipes for an Easy Bake Oven. The packages you buy in the store are kind of expensive.

I Googled "Easy Bake Oven Recipes" See Below:
And you wouldn't believe how many URL's there are! With hundreds of recipes. Here's a URL for a NPR story on the 40th anniversary of the Easy-Bake Oven: (the recipes are made up by gourmet chefs)
A note about safety: I was surprised how many fish and chicken recipes for the Easy Bake I saw. I don't think you can safely cook a piece of chicken or fish with a light bulb. I'd stay away from any meat recipe if I were you. (02/02/2008)
I use Jiffy cake mixes. (02/04/2008)
