Easy Bake Oven Ideas

My daughter received an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas this past year which set me to looking for recipes to use in it (instead of purchasing Easy Bake mixes - which can rack up money and usually don't taste nearly as good as "real food").  Thought I'd post my findings on here in case someone else could benefit from it.
For the above cakes we actually used a Martha White Chocolate Chip muffin mix and store bought icing
Here are some recipes using regular 
cake/cookie/muffin mixes

Martha White Mixes
Preheat oven 15 minutes
 3 Tablespoons mix
1 Tablespoon milk (or water)
Grease pan and bake 12 minutes
Cook in cooling chamber 8 - 10 minutes

Brownies OR Cake
  Preheat oven 15 minutes
1/4 cup regular brownie or cake mix
1 T. plus 1 tsp. water (or milk)
 Grease pan
Bake 12 minutes
Cool in cooling chamber 8 - 10 minutes

Preheat oven 15 minutes
2 T. regular cookie mix
1 tsp. water
Grease pan
Drop two small spoonfuls in pan
Bake 12 minutes
Cool in cooing chamber 8 - 10 minutes

For the industrious:
Here's a link to completely homemade recipes to use.
 We also did one up using peanut butter icing ---
liked this one the best!
Stay tuned for the p.butter icing recipe tomorrow.

Doesn't that make you remember how fun it was to bake with your own Easy Bake oven when you were a kid? I know I loved mine, but we didn't know (at the time) how to do the homemade mixes, so I didn't get to bake a lot with it. I have one set aside for each of my kids, probably for Christmas this year. I can hardly wait! :)

I love this idea...I just saw our Easy Bake in our closet...I think I'll take it out and try your recipes with the girls.
Thanks for sharing!

You can also run lunchables pizza threw them and have a warm pizza verses cold!
