Okay guys, here is another one for you to try. I just did this. Worked well.

3 tablespoons 321 cake mix
1 tablespoon water
Mix well. Spray a flat plate with cooking spray
Spoon mixture into three small piles on the plate. It will be thick. Wet your finger and flatten out the litlle piles. Nuke for 40 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from oven and allow to cool on plate.

There you have it, three cake mix cookies, all soft and fresh from the nuker.
Man I am having fun with this 321 cake.

This would be great for a kid party. Everyone gets to pick their own liquid and add-ins, like chocolate chips, cereal, sprinkles, etc. Prize for the best. Prize for the worst. No birthday cake to make or buy.

Couple little dollops of Oregon red raspberry preserve sank to the bottom and flavored the cup-o-cake wonderfully!

A sliver of butter, maybe an eighth of a teaspoon, nuked for 15 seconds, enough to melt. Then, 3-2-1. Curiously, it barely inflates/rises, it's just a touch more dense and moist. And, it lifts cleanly off my plastic microwave tupperware for... *gasp* a nice presentation, maybe with strawberries and whipped cream.

So.. my 7 year old hated the cake I had angelfood mixed with a devils chocolate one and added a few chocolate chips. Maybe I made it wrong because I was really hoping he would enjoy it.

I on the other hand didn't think it was bad at all. It did have a very distinct angelfood cake flavor to it but I love angelfood cake. Open to suggestions if I may have done something wrong ^^ (I followed the 3-2-1)

You might try adding 1/2 teaspoon of cocoa...it enriches the chocolate flavor. The angel food texture is still there but somehow it's not as noticeable.

I put a whole bunch of cocoa powder into the baggie. I also find that if you undercook it, like 45 seconds, it is a bit more moist. And frosting!

I'm going to try it with a brownie mix.

Carrot cake with crushed pineapple added would be good too. Spice cake and applesauce! Okay, I have to stop now...

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
