3-2-1 Cake

Hi everyone, did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth?! Sorry about not posting for so long, just haven't had time to take pictures and post to the blog. Hopefully things around here will calm down and I can share some recipes again and some crafts too! Today I want to share with you a recipe my friend Chanda from So NOT Betty! sent to me. She wasn't going to use it on her blog, so I will share it with all of you now!
First you start with an Angel Food cake mix and a regular cake mix, doesn't matter what favor BUT one of them has to be Angel Food, that's because there are dried egg whites in it and that is important.
Before I poured my angel food cake mix in, I wrote the cooking directions on the bag so I don't need to keep the recipe with it. Now pour in your Angel Food cake mix,
then add your cake mix of choice, and mix both together well. That's it!! Now you are ready to make yourself a individual cake!
I used a restaurant side dish that came home with us one time by accident and it worked perfect for this. I did measure and it holds 1/2 cup of liquid, so a little Pyrex dish would work well too. No, you don't have to grease it.
Measure out 3 tablespoons of mix (can do this right in the dish you are going to microwave it in).
Now add 2 tablespoons of water and mix it until well combined.
Pour into your baking dish.
Here it is before....
Here it is after.
Still hot.....
Oops, sorry its blurry.
Let it cool for 15 minutes before eating, taste way better after it has cooled, don't ask how I know this one! Here it is with some Reddi-Whip and some fresh raspberries on it, YUMMM!!!
It is very moist, which really surprised me, even hubby commented on this.
Well, I hope you give this a try, they are low in calories, if you don't add Reddi-Whip, lol!

3, 2, 1 Cake
1 box Angel Food cake mix
1 box cake mix, any flavor
In a zip-loc bag, combine the two cake mixes together, mixing 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.
Keep remaining cake mixture stored in the zip-loc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of whipped topping and/or fresh fruit.
Try various flavors of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple, lemon, orange, strawberry, spice, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food cake mix, the other is your choice.

I'm so glad they turned out well. My only problem would be that I'd keep making them all day, lol! Glad you liked them. Looks awesome with the cream and berries on top! Thanks for the plug! Have a happy day!
