Step 1

Mix 1 package Angel Food cake mix with any other flavor cake mix (I like chocolate!). Store in an airtight container in your pantry.

When the craving hits, just mix 3 tablespoons cake mix with 2 tablespoons of water in a coffee mug, and microwave on high for 1 minute.

Instant dessert!

Serving Size: Makes 46 servings (3 tbsp. mix per serving)

Mix in mini chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, etc. for a different twist. Top with ice cream, hot fudge or caramel sauce, fruit, Reddi Whip, Cool Whip, a small amount of pre-made cake icing from a tub, your choice of flavor for the icing, or anything else you love!

Stick a piece or two of tape or a label on the lid of the air tight container you are using to store the microwave cake mix in, and write the directions for the cake on top (3 tbsp. mix, 2 tbsp. water, 1 min. microwave) for an easy, help-yourself dessert for the whole family!
