You guys, today is book release day! Say hello to The My Little Pony Baking Book!
I really, truly am so excited to share this cookbook with you. My girls have grown up with My Little Pony (I may still know all the words to A Very Minty Christmas) and therefore it really was an honor for the My Little Pony team to trust me to bring this these recipes to life. And a thank you to my daughters, the best My Little Pony recipe consultants I could have ever asked for.
The My Little Pony Baking Book has something for everyone… Breakfast, Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Cakes & Cupcakes, Pies, Crisps & Cobblers, Breads & Muffins… it’s got them ALL!
The #MLPBakingBook contains 50 Baking Recipes that are tried, true and delicious. From cornbread to cinnamon rolls, granola bars to layer cakes, these are 50 AMAZING recipes. While I wanted to create recipes that kids could successfully make with adult supervision, I didn’t want to make food that would only appeal to kids. I worked very hard to create recipes that every body and every pony would love.
If you LOVE My Little Pony, I know you’ll love these recipes. That said, it was vital to me to create recipes that even the non-MLP crowd would enjoy. So even if you don’t know Pinkie Pie from Rainbow Dash, YOU WILL STILL LOVE THESE RECIPES.
I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this book and try these recipes. Please share pics of your books and your bakes, and tag me with @lovefromtheoven and #MLPBakingBook. I would be thrilled to see them.
Guys I LOVE LOVE LOVE these recipes SO much. And I know you will, too! Even super cute rescue pups approve. 🙂
Here’s the official “blurb” for the book…
The My Little Pony Baking Book
This eye-popping book, packed with color and wonder, will transport young readers into the world of My Little Pony, specifically, the Sugar Cube Corner Bakery where fan-favorite pony Pinkie Pie works for Mr. and Mrs. Cake, the two pony bakers who create all of the tastiest treats in town.
Pinkie Pie will give readers a “tour” of the bakery, during which readers will learn all about baking. She’ll also share why baking is great, how it makes people happy, feeds them, expresses love, and more. She’ll then share 50 or her favorite, easy-to-make recipes, designed to require a minimum of help from parents and caregivers.
Each recipe appears in full, vibrant color, with commentary and advice provided by the most popular My Little Pony characters.
Recipe sections include:
· Brownies and bars
· Pies, crisps and cobblers
· Breads and muffins
· Cakes and cupcakes
· Breakfast favorites!
I can’t wait to hear what you guys think about it, and what your favorite recipes are! You can find it in your local bookstores, and online as well.
The directions for the cinnamon rolls doesn’t include the 12 tablespoons butter. Is that added with the milk?

Can you do a book signing at the barns n noble in Tyler, texas?
Christi Johnstone says
Alannah, I wish! Unfortunately most publishers don’t have the budget for travel for book tours. So for now it’ll have to be local for me here in Arizona I’m afraid. But I would if I could!
Melissa Howell says
Oh my gosh, Christi! How amazing that you got to do this book! My 11-year-old daughter LOVES My Little Pony. She can often be spouting off sage wisdom, and invariably when I ask her, “Where did you learn that?” she will say, “My Little Pony!” She would LOVE this cookbook! I totally have to get it for her for her birthday! I don’t think she’ll ever outgrow her love of MLP!
Alyssa Romanuski says
I just got this a few days ago for my 17 year old daughter. I love baking and she loves MLP. I was hoping that this would encourage her to want to spend time in the kitchen with me…and it did! I helped her make the apple cheesecake crumb bars for some friends over the weekend and they were perfect! She got lots of compliments and we enjoyed baking together. She has already chosen at least three more recipes she can’t wait to try.
Christi Johnstone says
Alyssa, thank you so much for sharing! Having a 16 year old myself, I know those chances to spend time together are special. I’m so happy she likes it! If you are so inclined and want to leave a review on Amazon, that would be most appreciated. 🙂
