Super Mommy Secret~Easy Bake Oven Cookbook

My little Londyn got an Easy Bake Oven for her birthday last year and she LOVES it. However, I did not want to fork out the money for more mixes when they only make a couple bites of cake for 5.99, YIKES!! So I started looking around online and found some really great recipes that I compiled into a book for her.
I gave her this recipe book for Christmas.  
Here are the details:  I designed the cover with a freebie scrap kit from shabbyprincess.com (as a side note if you would like to learn more about digital scrapbooking visit my friend Alison's blog here) and then I slipped it into a half-sized view binder that I ordered site to store at staples.com.  I had trouble finding the half-sheet page protectors so I ordered them online at keepfiling.com.  They are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 sized.  I ordered $30 worth of products so I would not have to pay shipping...Super Mommies rarely pay for shipping!!  I found my recipes at Momsview, Chowhound, and Cdkitchen to name a few.  You can download my compiled recipe pages here.  I tried to keep them formatted landscape with two columns but I dont know how to preserve that when uploading to google docs.  Anyone downloading will have to redo that part, I guess.

The Verdict:  She loves it.  I had read that the made from scratch recipes wouldn't work because the real mixes have some kind of "plaster" type ingredient but the ones we have tried work great!  Her 9 year old brother, Tate helps her read and measure the ingredients and they have a great time baking together.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this cookbook. My daughter got an Easy Bake oven for Christmas 2 years ago, and she hardly ever uses it because the mixes are so expensive! Now, with this cookbook, she can use it all of the time. She will love it! I found this just in time for Easter. Thank you again.

  2. Good idea with the Cookbook..I find also that you can use a cake mix from the store as well...You can get alot of cakes with one mix..Also you can use brownie mixes,muffin mixes..Whatever you heart desires..My daughter loved making pizzas with her easy bake..You can also use the small pans in your big oven too..Great blog with awesome ideas!!!

  5. Can these be used in the small basic easy bake oven? I'd love to make it for my niece. But I don't want to ruin her oven.

  7. My daughter can't wait to try these out. :) By the way, I thought you might want to know that your cookbook has been reposted over on http://teachingjunkie.blogspot.ca/2012/01/easy-bake-oven-recipes.html, complete with her logo at the bottom of the last page. I only skimmed through it, but it appears to be an exact copy of yours, including your tips and comments. I found it when I was looking through pinterest for recipes for my daughter to try.

  8. Thank you so very much. This single dad of 2 little girls really appreciates all your HARD WORK in putting this together. I'm going to print out this little recipe booklet and get her a "real" easy bake over (w/ 100W bulb) for their birthday (which happens to be 2 days apart)...
    You Totally Rock!!!

  11. Shopping online for Christmas. Just thought of easy bake mixes for granddaughter for oven she got 2 yrs. ago. All stores are sold out of mixes online (12/12)! There are quite a few new mixes- pizza and various cookies and cakes. I came across your book. PLEASE get recipes for the new items! All the stores sell them. There is 1 site that has some, but they're really expensive! Will download this book. Thanks!!

  12. THANK YOU!!! My daughter asked for an easy bake oven for Christmas. We have a nut and soy allergy in our family so the mixes are pretty much out of the question. I had intended to go online and create my own cookbook today, but I brought her to work with me and knew it was going to be challenging. I am so very very thankful that you shared your hard work. This mom really appreciates it. Merry Christmas and Bless You for your kindness and generosity.

  13. Thank you- I am sending my granddaughter what she wanted for her birthday- an easy bake oven. I am downloading, printing and binding your recipes to include, as a "gift" for our daughter and son-in-law, so they will have an alternative to the expensive refills.
