Easy Bake Oven Recipes

Cleaning up my hard drive, I came across a list of Easy Bake Oven recipes that I had posted years ago on Themestream (an early version of a large group blog that shut down in 2001). I collected them from various listservs in the ’90s. Just before I trashed them, I looked around and found that Easy Bake Ovens still exist!

They are not your grandma’s easy bake oven, to be sure. (Or, er, mine.) But the cooler, hipper, dual-gendered (they come in purple or black) cooking devices are still on the market.

If you have one of these gems — or someone has one on their Christmas list — here are some great mini baking recipes to use with it at a fraction of the cost of the purchased mixes.

If you have any Easy Back Oven recipes of your own, please add them in the comments!
