One of the most enjoyable things about the Easy Bake Oven is that you can let your children’s creativity soar with each recipe by simple personalizations and modifications to the recipes. The Little Princess Easy-Bake Oven Recipe & Coloring Book by Jane Romsey helps with this creativity!
Each recipe is on a full page with large print to make it easier to follow for younger cooks. Unlike most recipe books I have come across, each recipe has a notes page which allows your child to make their own notes on modifications or thoughts on the recipe. You can even use it to make notes on when the recipe was used or to paste photos of the results, just like a scrapbook.
As with the mixes on EBORecipes.com there are recipes to make the basic mixes which you can use to create dozens of different cakes and frostings, save you money on prepackaged mixes and of course keep control of the ingredients. But cakes aren’t all you will find in this collection, you will also see recipes for cookies, bars, snacks and even breakfast food, something for every meal.
For your young male cooks there is also Little Dudes Easy Bake Oven Recipe & Coloring Book: 64 recipes with journal pages and 30 fun coloring designs.
