Dessert Snack for People Watching their Weight

I received the recipe below from a couple of different people.  My wife and I
tried it and thought it well worth passing on for people looking for a quick &
easy treat that isn't hard on the waistline.  If you like it, please pass it on to family
and friends.  You can mix up the flavors, so have fun and enjoy.  We use coffee
cups to make them in because the bowl gets quite warm.  It's nice to have a
handle to hold it.

3, 2, 1 Cake

These individual little cakes are amazing and ready to eat in one minute!  They
are perfect for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat and calories that
cake can have. Genius idea!


1 box Angel Food Cake Mix &
1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor 


In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix 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.
Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have your own instant individual little

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. (Strawberry shortcake....)

Helpful Tips: 

This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is "3
tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave!" TRY
various flavors of cake mix like carrot, maybe  with Nuts... red velvet, pineapple,
lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food
mix; the other is your choice.   The flavor possibilities are endless!


The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon storage bag, one that
'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a container that seals tightly, shake the two cake
mixes to blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple, put it on a
shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry. 

Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be Angel Food. The other
can be any flavor.  The Angel Food is the cake mix that has the eggs whites in it.
So, if, anyone is allergic to egg whites, you can NOT serve this recipe.
