3-2-1 Cake

I got this from my friend Peggy but haven't tried it out yet. It's a great idea for someone that has a sweet tooth.

The kids are here visiting and we have lots planned. The weather is perfect. Maggie is having a conference call so I snuck away to blog. All's well.

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!
1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor
Makes 1 serving.

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!

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 is important becaue it
has the eggs whites in it.)
