E-mail and Internet

Ladies, ever just want a bite of something to eat; but don’t feel like making whole cake? Or you just don’t want all the mess and clean-up? Or are you afraid to have a whole cake in the house with your new diet? Well now you can follow this simple recipe and make just one tiny cake or several – just whatever is wanted or needed.

Have you ever wanted a bit of dessert so bad that you eat everything in the cabinet to avoid eating a small dessert? This may be just the thing you are looking for to curb that craving.

From Plano, Texas to Atlanta, Georgia comes this delightful little recipe from a dear friend. Now like a chain letter, it is being sent out from Atlanta all across the US of A. Enjoy.

Great for a hurry up and fix treat for the kids coming in from school. This has been going around the Internet via blogs, websites, and e-mails so I don’t know who to credit with this recipe; but you can also find this on the Duncan Hines Cake site. Perhaps, it originated with them or perhaps they got the e-mail as well.

3, 2, 1 CAKE

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!


1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor


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.

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, red velvet, 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!


The best thing is that 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. So, if, anyone is allergic to egg whites, you can NOT SERVE them this recipe.

Write the recipe on the bag or write it on a small index card and drop it into the bag for later reference. Also a good idea if you have kids that want a snack, but you don't want to bake a whole cake.

These little cakes can be served with a dollop of fat-free Cool-Whip and/or fresh fruit such as strawberries or peaches. This would also be good served with fat-free/sugar free Jell-O Pudding in those small Jell-O cups.

This would make a nice gift to give to someone who needs a little help in the kitchen for whatever reason.

You might look around to see what small containers you might have. The first thing that comes to my mind is a sturdy micro-wave pudding cup; or a small measuring cup. Of course, you can make more than one at a time if you wish. The toppings you add can be endless. Post your ideas in the comment window.
