Cup o' cake...I may change the name! I wonder how this would work with a carrot cake.

Just got back from the store and tried the cake. The second mix was butter pecan. Made a double recipe 6-4-2 that turned out well at 1:40 in a small microwave. Great thing for kids.

I couldn't change the name or I'd forget how to make it.
I got the carrot cake mix, joesfolk.

It's good, but I almost wish I had gotten a plain white cake mix so it would be more of a blank palate and I could fool with extracts for other flavorings. I'm not big on chocolate, but I could try a little coco powder and a bit of instant coffee granules for a mocha flavor.

Shrek picked a lemon cake mix. I have it ready to go for our dessert tonight. Tomorrow I'm making the Lemon Angel Food...Maybe I'll change to to a pound cake or lemon curd instead.

I wonder how it would be with white cake mix and two T of fresh lemon juice instead of water.

I'll bet that would taste awesome but I wonder if changing the acid balance would be a problem. Still, it's not like you would be wasting much if it did flop.

I was considering trying the two tablespoons of lemon juice with just one of them tonight...the cake mix didn't smell lemony enough.

cake, recipe

3, 2, 1 Cake 3, 2, 1 CAKE I got this in an email, so thought I'd share. 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! INGREDIENTS: 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix 1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor Makes 1 serving. (Keep reading) DIRECTIONS: 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 cake! 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, or ice cream sauce, or.... 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, brownie mix, 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! NOTES: 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. 3 stars 1 reviews
