3-2-1 Cake

I received an email the other day that really intrigued me.   Included in the message was a recipe for 3-2-1 cake.  I love cake, but know from experience that if I make a cake I will eat the whole thing.  This recipe is for a one serving cake, perfect for me!

3-2-1 cake

1 box of angel food cake mix

1 box of cake – your choice of flavor

  1. In a large container with a lid (or a gallon ziplock baggie), combine the two cake mixes and mix together well.
  2. Close container and store till needed.

Cake instruction

In a small bowl or mug, add:

  1. 3 Tablespoons cake mixture.
  2. 2 Tablespoons water
  3. Microwave for 1 minute

How simple is that?  You can have a warm piece of cake in less than 3 minutes!  This recipe is great for portion control and you can get creative on what you want on top.  I have sprinkled the top with cinnamon or added a dollop of whipped cream.  The choice is all yours and the possibilities are endless!

  1. Wow, that seems criminal it’s so simple! I bet it would be even better with some Nutella or caramel sauce swirled in the batter before cooking. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Brandi, I wish I had an answer for you but I don’t. Since you are using two boxes of cake mix, my guess would be to combine the two and divide accordingly.
