You might try adding some lemon zest too.

I replaced the water with 2 Tbs. of Meyer lemon juice in my Carrot cake combo.......it was awesome and cut the sweetness perfectly.

If you don't have Meyer juice, I'd use 1 Tbs. lemon juice and 1 Tbs. water.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Which brands of mix have you all used with good results? I *love* cake. This is a perfect idea!
A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

I currently have a bag of mixed Betty Crocker angel food and Duncan Hines double chocolate with added cocoa powder and a few Ghiridelli chocolate chips stirred in later. Yummmm! I have found nuking a bit less than a minute works too.

I just got the store brand of cake, angel food and lemon cake. It was killer with the lemon juice.

This would work so well in my travel trailer. No storage of leftover cake and would leave room for smores another night. I just put angel food cake on my shopping list.
Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

My Flickr stuff!

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
