After school snack cake/cookie recipes needed pls :)

Hi!
I like to have something baked for the kids for when they come home from school. I am reusing too many of my classic recipes. I was wondering if anyone had any that they could share??? Simple would be best and without cream cheese.

Thankyou

This is an old standby that is delicious with or without the icing and sooo easy because you mix it in the pan.

Wacky Chocolate Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In an 8"x8" ungreased pan, sift the following ingredients: (Do be sure to sift them. The cake will be noticeably more tender.)

1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Run a spoon over this mixture to level it then make 2 smallish holes and one fairly large one.

In a small hole, put 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar.
In another, put 1 tsp. vanilla extract.
In the big hole, 6 Tbsp. cooking oil.

Pour 1 cup cold water over all and mix with a fork until smooth.

Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until cake springs back in the middle when you touch it. It will feel really springy.

Icing: Combine in saucepan and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick:
1-1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 c. water
dash of salt

Remove from heat when thickened and add 1-1/2 Tbsp. butter or stick margarine and 1 tsp. vanilla. Spread on cooled cake.

Also great simply sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Edit to add: For one thing, that "stirring constantly" for the icing. Don't want an inexperienced cook to set it on the stove and let it scorch! Also, I should have said that thick isn't all that thick for this. It'll be more the consistency of beaten egg yolks than mayonnaise when ready to use as it is more a glaze than an icing.

Wacky Cake is our go to cake - you can also pour the mix into cupcake liners once you mixed everything up.

My kiddos can't have dairy so we're always searching for things that taste good

I have a "2 ingredient" recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix (Kroger has a store brand that is dairy free) and 1 can of pumpkin. Mix the two ingredients together with a mixer (batter will be slightly stiff), pour into a greased 11X7 pyrex pan and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes - until a toothpick comes clean. Do not overbake.

While it cools, mix powdered sugar (about 1 1/4 cups - though I used about 1 cup) with 3 tbs apple cider and 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice and drizzle over the warm cake, slice and serve. I also keep a bit extra glaze to add to the slices when I serve them.

It tastes so yummy and is really easy to make!

Ashli, I love the no-bake cookie recipe from the link you posted. The only thing I wonder is if I can replace the peanut butter with something else or just leave it out? I simply don't like the taste of peanut butter (I know, crazy, right? But hey, I'm German )...

Any ideas???

OMG!! This was sooooo yummy!!! Was making one to take to work (I often use them as guinea pigs...) and as the cake baked, my DH informed me that I had best be making two cakes!

The one at work disappeared quite handily! We are still working n the one at home, but there is only three of us so it takes a little longer for the goodies to get munched on.

I am thinking about using a thinned out cream cheese frosting instead of the glaze and maybe cooking it in rounds and stacking them or even making cupcakes or the little mini cupcakes to make them easier and neater to eat. But the cake was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!

I doubt that these no-bakes would work if you left out the peanut butter entirely since it does thicken them some and cut the sweetness.

You might experiment with other nut butters to see which ones work well, but you'd end up tinkering with the amount of sugar to get the right level of sweetness for the nut butter you're using. Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) would probably work pretty well.

Cashew butter would need much less sugar, I'd bet, since it's lots sweeter than other nut butters.

It's tough to say since these no-bake recipes are based on commercial blended peanut butter. Using fresh-ground peanut butter even can mess up the proportions.

You might end up with lots of failed batches before you found what amounts of ingredients give the results you prefer.

If you live in a city that has a good public library, look for cookbooks for kids with food allergies. Some of those have no-bake cookies that don't call for peanut butter. Also, kids' cookbooks for kids with allergies although harder to find will often include peanut-free no-bake cookie recipes. Special diet cookbooks for kids with ADHD may have peanut-free recipes, too.

Thanks for the quick answer. I didn't realize that peanut butter was such a crucial ingredient. I might just try making the cookies with it and see how much I'm able to taste the peanut-y flavor.

I've made that recipe or one very similar and you will definitely taste the peanut butter.

A friend/co-worker uses a box of brownie mix and a can of pumpkin to make yummy, gooey chocolate brownies - can't even tell there is pumpkin in it! Think I'll have to try your recipe. It sounds yummy!
