Angel Food Cake in a Cup

Over the years, the kids have brought home fun “stuff” from Grandma’s house.  Noise-making toys, clothes, stuffed animals and snacks have been produced from the luggage upon their return home. Last week was no exception, except this time the girls brought home a recipe.

      It looks great but as a mom of three none of my family thought it tastes good.

      Only angel food I am pretty sure

    3. The Angel Food Cake mix, by itself or as part of a 3-2-1 mix, has powdered eggs in the mix for rising and texture.

    I don’t know, I’ve wondered the same thing about other cake mixes! Maybe somebody knows?

    I received this from friends–haven’t tried it, but they say it works and is good.
    3, 2, 1 Cake: for one serving: 1 box 1-step Angel Food Cake Mix, 1 box Cake Mix–Any Flavor, 2 Tbsp Water. 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 mixture stored in the Ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit–or whatever you can dream up. 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. Enjoy!

    1. Hope you have tried this by now!! Really does work!!

  5. Sandy’s comment is correct, that is a mix that works well. I would say, however, that adding any toppings would be preferable, because the cake, for me, was a bit bland. I will definitely try the angel food combination.

    And congratulations on the weight loss. I will continue to checkout your blog in the future.

      Thanks for stopping by, Cathy! And good idea on adding toppings!

  6. Better to use the angel food cake and reg. cake mix. This one over flowed in my microwave after 20 seconds.

    Can I just use the Angel food cake mix alone?

    1. Charlotte Siems says:

      The only other thing you add is water….not sure what you’re asking?

  9. Congrats on being a mother of 12 and having time for a blog. Just one question….with 12 kids, why would you need a cake for one? 😉
    Thank you for the recipe.

      Haha, have you ever heard of sneaking your own snacks so you don’t have to share with a toddler? Seriously, now we only have two teens left at home (well, two college students in and out, and married kids and grands stopping by), and they don’t like angel food cake so there ya go 🙂

    2. If I remember correctly, angel food cake and ice cream were included on the diabetic exchange diet (for scientific reasons i do not remember) . So even though I’m not on an official restricted diet, I can always tell when I’m eating something that doesn’t overdo on sugar so angel food is one of my personal faves.
