My youngest daughter begged and pleaded all year for an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas. I had one as a young girl but knew the mixes were the costly part. I found a Girl Scout version on sale mid year and tucked it away to put under the tree. When we shopped for refill mixes I couldn’t believe the prices so we figured out a few easy homemade Easy Bake Oven recipes to use instead. We hope you enjoy them at home with your child too!

How to Make Homemade Easy Bake Oven Recipes

There are several versions of the Easy Bake Oven and packets to bake. Quite frankly I think the machines no matter what they look like are the same except for the mixes that come with the initial box. This one was the Girl Scout style and came with 1 packet to make cookies and 1 to make a “frosting”. Of course that didn’t last long and she wanted to try other things.

I have a recipe to use a box of cake mix and how to make 6 cupcakes out of it. We started with that and it worked pretty well. I used a bit of non stick spray first so cleanup was easier. That way so she could cook several in a short amount of time.

How to Make Easy Bake Oven Frosting

This can be made with 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and slowly adding water or milk until it is the consistency you want. OR make our out of this world delicious Pudding Frosting to go on top when baked. We are all about EASY recipes.

The trick is finding the right amount to put in the pan so it doesn’t overflow. Cookie dough would have to be flattened so it is the same thickness all the way across. Too high and it will hit the lightbulb inside and burn. Usually 2 at a time works, flattened to fill the pan evenly for a few minutes.

Can you use cake mix inside an Easy Bake Oven?

Once you make the batter for 6 cupcake recipe above you will want to spray the pan and put 2 heaping tbsp. in. as you see above. that is about perfect so it doesn’t overflow and make a mess. You can see the fudgy results below. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. I would check at minute 9 and see if it’s good for your taste or you want it a bit dryer and put in for another few minutes.

Can you use Easy-Bake Oven mixes in a regular oven?

I mean you could but why?? The pans and amounts of batter are just so small that it is barely enough for a child to really enjoy. If you just wanted to try it though then by all means give it a go at 350 for just a few minutes, you’d need to watch thru the window.

How do you make EZBake Oven recipes?

We like our treats a bit on the wetter side so 9 minutes was good for us. If you want to make brownies use this brownie in a mug recipe and use the same amount. Be sure to check at minute 7 or so for how done you want them.
