1-2-3 Cake

Needing a little cake?
Only have about 2 minutes to make it?
Done and Done!

My mom-in-law taught me this quick and easy way to make cake.
It's perfect for summer because there's no need to turn on the oven and heat up the house.
Plus it's so easy the kids can make it for themselves anytime.
I know, who needs more cake right?
Well, sometimes I just need a little sweet something in my life and this cake fits perfectly.
I do want to do more experimenting with mix-ins 
and different kinds of cake mix but for now, 
this is a fun little cake that literally takes less than 2 minutes to make.
I'm serious!
It will probably take longer to read the post than to actually make the cake.

Ok.  Enough chatter.
Let's make some cake.

1-2-3 Cake

All you need is 1 box of Angel Food Cake mix and 1 box of another kind of cake mix.  
One has to be Angel Food, the other doesn't matter, just according to taste. 
Put in air-tight container and mix well.

3 Tbsp cake mix
2 Tbsp water
1 minute in the microwave.

Get out your mug.
Measure 3 Tbsp of cake mix into your mug.

Measure 2 Tbsp water into the mug.

 Mix well with a spoon.  It will begin to froth and foam a little.  That's Ok.

Put your mug in the microwave.  You can do two at a time, but if you do one at a time, they rise higher.

Microwave for 1 minute.

Shake the mug slightly to loosen the cake from the sides.
Dump out the cake on to a plate and let cool slightly.  
Be carefull.  
It will be hot when it first comes out.

At this point you could add frosting, but it might get a little messy.
That part is totally up to you!
I'm not the one cleaning up after your kids if they make a mess. ;)

Almost instant cake.
Yummy and Perfect for Summer!

As Marie Antoinette would say...
"Let them eat Cake!"
