You know how I love my mug cakes…Not only do I like creating my own, but I also like trying recipe ideas from others. For about a month now, this 1-2-3 cake recipe kept coming across my pinterest board. This week, I finally got around to trying it.
It’s meant to be a low calorie/fat type of recipe and it’s really easy to make. You will need to buy angel food mix, which is not something I typically carry in the house.
The recipe only requires three items: water, angel food cake mix and regular cake mix. It only takes one minute to cook in the microwave, and the result is a light, spongy cake.
I chose chocolate cake mix to mix with the angel cake mix. The original recipe requires you to mix both together and then store it to use whenever you feel like making this individual serving. I didn’t want to mix mine all just in case I didn’t like it, so instead I mixed equal portions of the two mixes.
The cake tasted like a chocolate angel food cake. It was really light, airy, not very rich, but then angel food cake usually isn’t. I’m actually not that big of a fan of angel food cake. So I didn’t love love this recipe. But it is a nice quick treat when I’m craving something sweet and don’t want to indulge in too many calories. And it’s really simple to put together–easier than most of my mug cake recipes.
You can view the full recipe here. Note: If you don’t wish to completely combine the two boxes of cake mixes you can take 1 1/2 tbsp of each mix and mix it together and then mix in the water.
- 1 box angel food cake mix
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
In a large bowl combine the two boxes of cake mix. Store the cake mix in an airtight container.
When you’re ready for cake, you just need to remember to combine 3 tablespoons of the cake mix with 2 tablespoons of water in a mug. Then microwave the batter for 1 minute. Cool the cake for a few minutes and enjoy!
