Every little girl dreams about having an Easy Bake Ultimate Oven. At least I know I did when I was a little girl. I wanted to bake my own goodies, without much help from my mom. I remember the day I finally received one. It was like all of my dreams came true. I know. It’s a little dramatic. But, it didn’t feel that way when I younger!
Now I can pass that same excitement on to my girls. As you can imagine as soon as we got it we had to open it right away. I’m quite impressed with the super chic look of the new designs. It definitely doesn’t look anything like the Easy Bake Oven I once had. Makes me wish I still had it. That would have made for the perfect photo opportunity. Mother and daughter with matching ovens.
The new Easy Bake Oven came with baking pan, pan pusher, and chocolate chip cookie mix. Everything my girls need to bake up her first treat! We did wish it came with more like some of the models do but we just went ahead and purchased some additional mixes at Target. The mixes are a little pricey at about $7 each but my girls are enjoying feeling so grown up and making their own treats so I splurged a little.
They have been baking their little hands off. I was quite surprised at how good the creations they made were. They made pretzels which came with a cheese dipping sauce and the chocolate chip cookie mix that came with the oven.

No, the cookies weren’t the pretties as they sort of fused into one big cookie but they were easy to break apart and were delicious!
We also have a cheese pizza mix waiting for us to use. Yes, I said CHEESE PIZZA for an Easy Bake Oven! We’d like to get some cake mix next. I have to admit I had fun making the pretzels, too!Getting all the ingredients ready for the pretzels.
Mixing up the dough, cheese sauce, and egg wash (what gives these pretzels a golden color).
Rolling out the pretzels!
Look how proud she was of making pretzels by herself!
One of the best parts is there aren’t any more lightbulbs. Phew! I remember the tragedy of my lightbulb burning out right in the middle of my cookies. Talk about heartbreak.
I would recommend this fabulous toy to anyone looking to continue on the amazing tradition of the Easy Bake Oven. It was a blast when I was a kid and I love sharing this experience with my girls.
