Does anyone have some simple recipes for a bakesale?

Question by nowisthatnecessary: Does anyone have some simple recipes for a bakesale?
In a couple of days, my club is having a bakesale. I wanted to bake something from simple, but yummy, of course. Does anyone know any simple recipes for desserts such as cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc., other than the bagged mixes you can buy at a store?

I used to make chocolate covered pretzels for bake sales and the went like crazy. You just buy pretzel rods and dip them in chocolate. The chocolate bark stuff works best because it gets firm again. You can also add a little paraffin to the chocolate to help it get firm again. Finally, add some sprinkles if you are selling them where children will be buying. Yum!

    what i have always had good luck with at a bakesale is, … store bought plain biscuit dough (pillsbury) cut the centers out and fry like a doughnut. if you want jelly, dont cut a hole in the center . fry and squeeze jelly into it with a pastry bag . they will sell like crazy. also shake in a bag of sugar or cinnamon sugar or ice them with frosting.

    OOoooooo… Try my super easy strawberry cupcakes! I know you mentioned ‘no bagged mixes’ but you take a box of Duncan Hines strawberry cake mix and mix the container of strawberry icing DIRECTLY in the batter! That’s the secret! The cupcakes come out so moist and delicious. Cheap and easy for a bake sale, they will be begging you for the recipe!!!

    I make “candy kebabs” to put on my weekly stall at the market.Thread about 8 soft jelly candies onto a kebab stick, even paper lollies will go into the stick, put into a cellophane bag, tie with florist ribbon and a nice gift packaged el cheapo. I sell them for $ 1 ea, secret though….Dip stick into glass of water for easier threading!

    You can buy a mix and doctor it up and claim it as your own. I make this banana bread that taste so home made and it’s good for you also. (It’s not bad for you.) I start with Pillsbury Banana bread mix. I add to it 2 mashed very ripe bananas 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts instead of oil I add apple sauce it also calls for 2 eggs and a cup of water. (milk if you are making cupcakes) I would follow the bread recipe. 1 box followed the way I said will yield 4 mini loaf pans. You can get 5 bucks a pop. If you want to be really fancy, add a cup of frozen blueberries. Just mix them in frozen. People will go ga ga
