        Hello my daughter just received an easy bake oven. I love this site! Regarding the shortening.. 1) is this crisco? and also do I mix this in with the dry ingredients or is it used to grease the pan?

        The shortening is any solid shortening (crisco is fine!), and yes, it goes Into the cake mix.

        So, do you just sort of mash the shortening into the dry ingredients until it's fairly well blended? Or do you melt it and stir it in?

        I'm so happy to have found your site because I'm getting my granddaughter an EasyBake for Christmas and want to make up a little "cookbook" for her.

        You cut in the shortening (a fork works great for this) until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Then add the milk last, careful not to overmix.

        I'm new to this site but love it, quick ?, Can I use butter instead of shortening?

        Yes, use equal amounts of butter. If the recipe calls for 2 T. shortening, use 2 T. butter instead. The only difference you will notice is that is spreads more (not a big deal in a cake) and that cakes made with butter have a tendency to "seep" in warmer weather. (Because the butter melts), whereas shortening doesn't.

        This will make great stocking stuffers for my granddaughters! Place in a cute container with the instructions.

        How long do you need to bake it?

      hi, instead of newspaper use used or new coffee filters, might be a little messy but easier for the plants to grow roots through
