3-2-1 Cake

Yum
Wanting a quick dessert?  This delightful 3-2-1 Mug Cake is for you!  3 tablespoons of the mix, 2 tablespoons of water and microwave 1 minute and you have dessert!  This comes out about the size of a cupcake, a perfectly controlled portion!


All you have to do is to mix an ANGEL food cake mix (must be angel food) and a cake mix of your choice of flavors (I had a yellow mix) and dump them into a large ziplock together and blend the two mixes well.    Here's where the 3-2-1 comes in.  In a large mug,

Put 3 tablespoons of the blended cake mix into the mug.
Stir in 2 tablespoons of water into the mix.
Microwave for 1 minute.

Remove from the microwave.  I sprinkled a small amount of chocolate chips on top and spread them around when they were soft.  This was so yummy!  Fresh cake in a minute.  Wait, is this a good thing?

  1. Sounds like a good thing to me. So you mix it up in the zip-loc and save it until the next time you need a fix and then make another. It might actually prevent a lot of us from roaring through a dozen cookies or eating an entire cake. I had a cake in a mug mix on my blog once and until now have promptly forgotten it. Thanks for the reminder!

  7. Hi sweet friend

    I'm up early...way too early...but I'm having fun sipping on some coffee and FINALLY catching up on my blog reading.

    It's always fun to visit YOU, but here I am and you're NOT. Pooh! I hope you're not giving up on blogging! So many are only doing facebook now. I love it too, but it's just not the same to me. Please come back.

    Hugs,
    Kat
