I think it's wonderful that you bought him an Easy Bake Oven! Here are some neat scratch recipes that you could include with your gift.
Easy-Bake Oven Recipes
6 teaspoons flour
4 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon soft butter
6 teaspoons milk
2 drops vanilla
Lightly spritz one cake pan with baking spray. In a bowl, measure the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa and salt. Mix. Add the butter and mix well with a spoon or mini-spatula until well blended. Add milk and vanilla and blend thoroughly. Pour into one well-greased pan. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 1 layer.
PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons cocoa
2 1/2 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon soft butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Spritz pan with baking spray. In a bowl, mix all ingredients until smooth. Spread mixture in greased pan. Bake 5 minutes in Easy-Bake Oven. Cool. For quick cooling, place in the fridge for 5 minutes. Cut into pieces.
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon cocoa
1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
4 drops vanilla
2 teaspoons finely chopped nuts
In a small bowl, blend the ingredients thoroughly. Spread in well-greased pan. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven about 10 minutes. Makes 1 serving.
3-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
3 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
4 graham cracker piecrusts, single-serve size
In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla. Divide the mixture among the 4 crusts. Using a metal spatula, scrape over the shells to level the top. (You must do this or the pan won't be flat enough to fit into the oven.) The crumbs will fall onto the filling. Any crumbs that fall on the work surface may be placed on the filling, too. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven for 15 minutes. Makes 4.
4 cocktail frankfurters (such as Vienna sausage)
2 triangles packaged refrigerated crescent roll dough
Poppy seeds, optional
Slice each frankfurter in half lengthwise. Slice each triangle of crescent roll in half to form 2 triangles, and then in half again. The triangles will not be exactly the same size. Place a half-frankfurter along one edge of a crescent triangle. Roll up crescent dough toward a point. Press lightly on the point to seal. Repeat with remaining frankfurters and triangles. Place 2 at a time in an ungreased baking pan. Flatten a bit if necessary so that the pig-in-a-blanket is no higher than the sides of your baking pan. If you want to dress them up, gently rub the dough with soft butter and sprinkle on a few poppy seeds. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve with ketchup and mustard for dipping. Makes 8.
2 round crackers or melba toast
1 teaspoon pizza sauce
1 single-serving stick of string cheese
Oregano or thyme, optional
Place 2 crackers or melba toast in pans. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon pizza sauce onto the center of each. Unwrap the string cheese and slice it to make dime-size rounds. Arrange 3 rounds of cheese on top of the tomato sauce. Sprinkle with oregano or thyme, if using. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven about 10 minutes, or until cheese softens and melts. Makes 2 petite pizzas. Adult note: Spoon out a little pizza sauce into a ramekin or tiny bowl. Refrigerate the large container.
CHOCOLATE GRAHAM SANDWICHES
Creamy peanut butter
Break four 4-by-4-inch squares of graham crackers in half to make 2-inch rectangles. Place 2 cracker rectangles into each baking pan. Top with pieces of Hershey bar, snapping off the chocolate to fit. Top with graham cracker rectangles that have been spread with peanut butter. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven about 10 minutes or until the chocolate melts. Makes 4 sandwiches.
Place 3 Wheat Thins in each baking pan. Unwrap a cellophane-wrapped slice of American cheese and tear into pieces. Place pieces onto the crackers. Bake in Easy-Bake Oven about 5 minutes.
BAKED APPLE SLICES
1 medium apple
Wash apple. Slice across the center of the apple to make 2 slices 1/2 inch thick. Remove the center core with a blunt spreader. Place 1 slice in each pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Drizzle with some honey. Bake about 20 minutes or until the apple is soft.
