If Santa or some other very special person gave you a neatsy-nifty kid oven, you’re probably already in the market for more recipes.
And we have some to share, thanks once again to faithful Forum helper-outer Clifton Leatherwood. Although he doesn’t use what he calls "easy, squeezy, queasy bake recipes," he devoted an awesome and amazing amount of time researching them for those who might.
Today we’ll sample the following baked goods, apparently archived at www.cdkitchen.com.
Ready, set, bake:
Toy oven <BR>

1teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa, shortening and salt. Add milk. Pour into greased baking pan that comes with toy oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 1 serving.
Note: If you don’t want chocolate cake, omit the cocoa and add a drop or two of vanilla with the milk.
