3-2-1 Cake

Mixing the cake mixes with their Nanny (my mom)

Tonight we had this super easy dessert.  My aunt shared the recipe with our family and we thought it would be a fun thing to do with the girls on our last night of vacation (Sidenote:  we’ve been visiting family back East for the past few weeks and having a great time.  It’s going to be hard to leave tomorrow).


  • 1 box of Angel food cake mix
  • 1 box of any other kind of cake mix
  • Water

Mix the two cake mixes together (Angel food and one other).  Do not add eggs, oil, or anything else.  We used a ziplock bag to mix them so that you could also store the mix for next time.

Then you use:

  • 3 Tbsp cake mix
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 coffee mug

Stir it in the mug then cook it for 1 minute on 50% power in the microwave.

It is a fabulous sweet little treat.  You can put a topping on it like cool whip, chocolate syrup, etc.  We tried it with frosting and sprinkles, but our favorite was adding ice cream with it.

It tastes like a sweet cupcake.  You can eat it in the mug or drop it onto a plate.  Delicious!
