Q:

My daughter loves her Easy Bake Oven, but the mixes go for about $5.00 each. Is there a cheaper way?

A:

My daughter loves using her Easy Bake Oven but I agree with you. There has to be a cheaper way to make cakes and cookies than buy their mixes. So we have a collection of recipes for doing it ourselves. Below are a few to get you started. Happy baking!

White Frosting Mix

2 cups powdered sugar — sifted 3 tablespoons instant nonfat milk powder 6 tablespoons vegetable shortening In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk powder. Stir with a wire whisk to blend. With a pastry blender cut in shortening. Spoon about 1/3 cup of mixture into each of 8 small bags. Seal tightly. Makes 8 packages. For chocolate frosting, add 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa.

To use:

Combine 1 package of the above mix plus 3/4 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Stir well with a spoon until smooth and creamy. Makes about 1/4 cup frosting. A drop or two of vanilla may be added if desired.

Brownies

2 1/2 T. sugar 1 t. oil 1/8 t. vanilla extract 4 t. chocolate syrup 2 1/2 T. flour // Stir together sugar, oil, vanilla, chocolate and flour until the batter is smooth. Pour batter into greased and floured pan. Bake 15 minutes.

Chocolate Cake

6 teaspoons flour 4 teaspoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa 3/4 teaspoon shortening 1 pinch salt 6 teaspoons milk Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa, shortening and salt. Add milk and stir until smooth. Pour into greased baking pan that comes with the toy oven. Bake for 12 to15 minutes. If you want white cake, omit the cocoa and add a drop or two of vanilla with the milk. Makes 1 serving.
