    3-2-1 cake

    These individual little cakes are amazing


    And ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect


    For whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat


    And calories that cake can have. Genius idea!
    INGREDIENTS:
    1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
    1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor
    2 Tbsp Water
    Makes 1 serving.
    DIRECTIONS:
    In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together


    And mix well. For each individual cake serving, take


    Out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and
    Mix it
    With 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe


    Container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have


    Your own instant individual little cake!
    KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the ziploc bag


    And use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top


    Each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping


    And/or some fresh fruit.
    Helpful Tips:
    This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need


    To remember is
    "3 tablespoons mix,


    2 tablespoons water,


    1 minute in the microwave!"
    TRY various flavors of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple,


    Lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has


    To be the angel food mix; the other is your choice.


    The flavor possibilities are endless!
    NOTES:


    The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon


    Storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a


    Container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to


    Blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple,


    Put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry.
    Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be


    Angel Food. The other can be any flavor.


    The Angel Food is the cake mix that has the eggs whites


    In it. So, if, anyone is allergic to egg whites, you can NOT


    Serve this recipe.

    Tried with the chocolate mix. I put fudge sauce in it before nuking and when it comes out it has a sauce on it! Can't wait til strawberries are in! Will use the white or yellow mix and put them on top when done. Yummmmmmmmmmmm!

    This sounds like a great recipe for someone who lives alone. It is hard to eat a whole cake by yourself.....well not hard, but shouldn't be done....thanks for sharing....

    This is fantastic. When I bake a whole cake, I am not satisfied until it is all gone. This is a great way to have a real sweet treat without the temptation. Thanks a million, I can't wait to try it.

    This sounds like some thing I MUST try. Love cake, but never want a lot at any one time. So this sounds like it will fit the bill.
    Thank you for your post.

    This sounds so good! I'm usually alone, so making a full cake does not make sense, this will be great - even when my little granddaughter comes to visit, she'll get a kick out of it!

    I made up a batch of mix and my son is making his second cake, chocolate with some dried cherries in it this time!
    He loved making the other popular cake in a cup, but this one sounds not quite as bad for you.
    I think it would be really good with a dollop of frosting.

    This is the best! I've been putting Nutella on it as chocolate frosting, although I've also used lemon curd and even strawberry jam. What a great idea this recipe is!

    Dumb question...do you just eat it out of the cup or will it come out? Do you grease the cup?

    Thanks

    A wonderful idea for someone living alone. You don't have to deprive yourself, and best of all, it's easy and quick.
