The Single Gourmet

Have you ever wanted a little sweet after a meal or had someone drop by for tea or coffee and had nothing to serve with it?  Making a cake would take time and then you would have a big cake to eat.  There goes your plan of a diet. Here is your answer.  The 3-2-1 cake.

Purchase three cake mixes.  One must be Angle Food and the other two whatever you like, yellow, white, lemon, strawberry, etc.  I used a white cake mix and a chocolate cake mix.

Place half of Angel cake mix into two containers.  I divide it by scooping mix out with a 1/2 cup measuring cup and placing every other cupfull in oposite containers.  Depending on the cake mix, it will be about 1 1/2 cups for each container.  Or you could measure the whole mix and divide by half.

Divide the other two mixes in half.   Place half of each cake mix into containers with the Angel food cake mix.  The other half goes back into the box for now.

Shake containers to mix cake mixes.

To make the cake – Place in a mug –  3 Tablespoons mix   2 Tablespoons water Mix with a fork and microwave for one minute.

To make the cake extra special, you can add one to two teaspoons of yummy things.  Cherries with chocolate cake.  Blueberries with lemon cake.  Chocolate chips and nuts with white cake. Different spices, coconut, dried fruit. Anything that you have in your cupboard.  It does take 2 -3 seconds longer to bake with add ons.

What to do with the left over mix.  You could make a one layer cake or cupcakes or you could bake cookies.,……..

Basic recipe for cake mix cookies

This is for the leftover mix in the bag, not the combined mix for cake.

4 Tbsp olive oil    1 egg   1/2 box of cake mix  mix together.  Place by Tablespoons on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. You can add yummy things as above.

Ashley’s favorite yummy cookies – To the basic recipe for white or yellow cake mix, add 1/2 c raisins, 1/2 c chopped dates.  1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ginger.

I bought a little cookie scoop and it makes the cookies all the same size.  It looks like a baby ice cream scoop.

Have a great day .

Enjoy your cookies and cake.
