3-2-1 Cake

My mother shared this recipe with me.  She said she has tried it and it works very well. It’s great for when you don’t want to bake a whole cake, but you are craving something baked and sweet.

1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box Cake Mix (any flavor)
In a gallon zip-lock bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well.

Directions for One Serving Cake:
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 (I use a coffee cup). Microwave on high fo 1 minute and you have your own instant individual little cake.

You can top each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit. Try various flavors of cake mix – like carrot, red velvet, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to the angel food mix. 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 the mix is simple – put 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 egg whites in it.
