My dear friend Virginia shared this recipe that she got from her grandmother recently and I’ve been on a 3-2-1 cake kick ever since. It is super easy and perfect when you just want a little portion controlled sweet treat that takes 1 minute to make.
- 1 box Angel Food cake mix
- 1 box of any other flavor cake mix (I happened to find a box of orange flavor in my pantry)
1) Mix the 2 boxes of cake mix together in a large Ziploc bag or container until combined well.
2) In a microwave safe mug or bowl, add 3 Tablespoons of this cake mix mixture and 2 Tablespoons of water. Mix until completely combined.
3) Microwave for 1 minute.
Voila! I topped mine with low fat vanilla ice cream and mandarin oranges. But, you can top it with anything in your refrigerator/pantry (chocolate chips, coconut, sliced almonds, cool whip, strawberries, etc). The combinations are endless, especially if you experiment with different cake flavors.
The name comes from 3 Tablespoons of cake mix, 2 Tablespoons of water, and 1 minute in the microwave – makes it easy to remember. The other great thing about this is that you’ll have enough of the cake mix mixture for several days to come. Enjoy!
