Saying Goodbye to a Classic :The Easy Bake Oven (as we know it)

Easy Bake PRNT Easy Bake Oven
Incandescent light bulbs are no longer going to be sold after Jan 2012...That's this January!
  Sadly, this is what the Easy Bake Oven uses to cook the batters.   The CLF bulbs don't give off enough heat to cook the baked goods. Stock up on those bulbs if you have one.

Kenner came out with this cutie in 1963 and it is currently marketed by Hasbro.  They have sold more than 16 million of these ovens, and almost every woman I know had their hands on one of these as a child.

It won't be totally gone....The company is bringing out a new improved model, it will cost a bit more, and it will include a heating element, but what parent can leave their child unsupervised with a heating element?  I don't have mine anymore but am tempted to run out and get one for my future grandchildren and a lifetime supply of incandescent light bulbs.

If you have an easy bake oven, here are some recipes for your kids to make, you won't have to run out and get the mixes.
