A.MA.ZING! 3 - 2 - 1 Microwave Cake


We interrupt this regularly-scheduled blog post  to 'announce' this incredible new recipe!!

I am just giddy with glee to share this with you today....

Individual mini cakes and they're ready in a minute!


(double size)

After a friend recently emailed this recipe to me, I just had to give it a try!

This is one of those F.U.N recipes!!  Perfect when you have a sweet tooth craving and it's very low in fat and calories to beat!!

Kid - friendly too....soo kid-friendly you can hardly believe it.

Take a box of angel food (1 - step) cake mix, pour it into a ziploc bag, then add a favorite box cake mix - your favorite flavor.
(I used Funfetti) Blend both together....measure out a portion, mix with water and pop in the microwave for a minute!!!


All you have to remember is 3 TB. mix, 2 TB. water - 1 minute in microwave!

I tried doubling the recipe in one mug and it was still done in a minute.  

I drizzled a little powdered sugar glaze over top....

The mix...the mug...the cake

The possibilities are endless...try different cake mixes..carrot, lemon, strawberry, red velvet, chocolate.  Just remember one of the mixes has to be an angel food cake (1-step, not 2).

 When you mix with water, it will 'foam' up like the angel food cake...the end result has the texture of angel food cake with the cake flavor...amazing!!!

Here's the directions that even a kid can do!
3-2-1 Microwave Cake

1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor
2 Tbsp Water
Makes 1 serving.

In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well. For each individual cake serving, measure 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container (I used a rounded bottom coffee mug - ungreased). 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.
