My daughter received an Easy Bake Oven for her birthday last year, and was incredibily excited about it. She got a couple of packages of premade cakes that she went though quickly and we had some that were complete flops. Not only flops, but they were pretty disgusting with fake ingredients and fake colors. So I went on a mission to find a few recipes I could help her create with ingredients from home. Since we like to compare things, we made one cake in the Easy Bake Oven and one in my oven. My oven won the test, and my daughter is ok with the possibility of saying goodbye to the Easy Bake Oven.
We came out of the experiment with a usable cake mix that is easy for the kids to make and all you need to add is water.
Chocolate Cake Mix
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/3 cup coconut oil
In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients together until blended. Cut in coconut oil and mix until finely cut in. Done!
I save mine in a large glass ball jar with a reusable lid.
I usually make two cakes at a time, so measure out 2/3 cup of your cake mix and stir in 2 1/2 tablespoons of water (could use milk or almond milk). Mix well and pour into two buttered ramekins. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes.
You could top these with frosting or add into the batter chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, candies or be creative.
