UnknownChef86 makes it sound like the "3 tablespoons of cake mix to one tablespoon of milk" recipe can be used with any commercial cake mix. I used it with HEB grocery store's store brand (Hill Country Fare) devil's food cake mix, and the cake rose up out of the pan, and was also undercooked, after 15 minutes in a preheated Easy Bake Oven. It made a mess in the cooking chamber, which anyone who has an Easy Bake Oven knows is very difficult to clean. Obviously this recipe does not work with all brands and varieties of cake mixes. UnknownChef86 and others here apparently just got lucky with their brands/varieties. UnknownChef86 should have been more responsible and only stated that it works for the specific brands/varieties that (s)he tried, and list those varieties.

I was very happy to find this recipe. We tried making the easy bake cake mix and it didn't even rise. We just made this and it was great. It loses some of the flavor by not adding the egg, oil, water that the box says, but all in all, it is pretty good. I put the leftover dry mix that we didn't use in a plastic baggie that we will use over and over till it's done. Thanks so much for this great recipe! My daughter loved it.

We think it's delicious and a great way to save money! The mixes that came with the oven were difficult to make smooth and spreadable, but this works great! We used Jiffy mix with good results. We also had success mixing 3 T Jiffy White Frosting mix with 1 teaspoon of hot water. Makes a cheap, yummy icing. Thank you!
