Easy Bake Oven Recipes to Pass on to Your Child

Do you remember how as a kid you might have enjoyed playing with your Easy Bake Oven? Well I was pleased to find out the other day that these ovens are still for sale.

If you like the look of a vintage easy bake oven then you can find lots of vintage styles, unused and still in their packages online. As you might call the oven was heated by a light bulb and the oven came with a little pans and cake mixes for making the Easy Bake Oven Cakes. However these cake mixes are expensive and just about impossible to find which why I am glad that I kept my recipes for the Easy Bake Oven. I remember that I reduced and calculated all of the ingredients myself so that I would not have to pay for the expensive mixes.
Here they are –
Banana or Chocolate or Vanilla Cake
6 tablespoons flour
4 teaspoons sugar
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Dash of salt
Six teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons butter
3 tablespoons banana cream pudding mix (or chocolate or vanilla- whatever flavor you want to make)

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add vanilla, milk and butter. Mix until smooth and then add the banana pudding mix.

Butter and flour the little mix pans and pour the mixture in and bake in the Easy Bake Oven of 12 to fifteen minutes. Ice with chocolate frosting and press a candied banana chip in the center of each cake or make a little layer cake.

Easy Bake Peach Upside Down Cake
¼ yellow instant cake mix
3 tablespoons peach juice
A couple of canned pieces sliced into chunks
Brown sugar

Grease the pan with butter and cover the bottom of the pan with the brown sugar. Layer the peaches on top and then pour the batter over the peaches. Bake for twenty minutes. Let cool a bit and flip over when done. Serve with a bit of vanilla ice cream or milk poured over it.

Easy Peanut Butter Cake
6 tablespoons flour
4 teaspoons sugar
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Dash salt
6 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons peanut butter
Mix the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla, milk and peanut butter and stir until smooth. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for twenty minutes. Let cool and serve with strawberry preserves or jam. You can also make a layer cake with the middle layer being peanut butter.

New Toys for 2012

When it comes to toys that are expected to be released to an excited public in 2012 there are a few new novelties worth mentioning. Your kid probably already knows about them even though they just got on the market.

Hasbro is putting out a lot of new toys this year, especially ones that are tied to big movie releases of old science fiction and cartoon classics that are coming out on Blu Ray or in the movie theaters. There is now a new series of Avengers toys along with a redone miniature plastic model of the vintage Iron Man. This Iron Man is bright red with silver detail. The toy company has also come out with models of Hawkeye and the Black Widow both sporting a lot o pouches and big weapons. They have also made a model of Captain America which is 1950s looking with red gloves, a sky blue suit and a shiny little shield that looks like a bulls eye with a star in the middle of it.
The toy company Hasbrow has also released a red and blue version of Spiderman and Leia and Lando from Star Wars in desert gear. The company is also releasing a life size Darth Maul style double-sided lightsaber to tie into the 3-D release of the classic Star Wars film.

This year Disney has unveiled a DisneyBaby.com empire that includes Disney product collections including magical toys, bath toys, cuddly toys and baby gear decorated with everyone's favorite Disney characters.

The company White Rabbit England is launching a new collection for 2012 including lots of soft, fluffy rabbit toys, an embroider blanket with soft fluffy rabbis on it and Staffordshire pottery with the white rabbit on it. Other new products made by White Rabbit England for 2012 include a dog lamp, a cat lamp and a keepsake box with the famous image of the White Rabbit on it.

Apple's iPad has also launched a new iPad game that allows humans to play games in real time with live farm pigs. From their iPad humans press a button on a screen. This is connected to a Wiii type screen in a Danish pig farm in which bored pigs press their snouts against a touch sensitive display to try and produce virtual sparks of light. This is a game that works because pigs display the same kind of curiosity as humans when they are bored and will learn how to press their snouts against an interactive screen.
