3-2-1 Cakes for the RVer or Grandchild

Okay, I admit it.  I'm having RV withdrawal symptoms since I haven't had the RV out since right before Thanksgiving.  I've checked on it, I've winterized it, but mostly I've missed it.  So...

Here is a great recipe that I learned from a bunch of RVing ladies.  Believe it or not, some people don't use the stove let alone the oven in their RV.  I definitely do.  But, most people do use the microwave as long as they have electric power or even generator power or super-duper solar power.  You can fix some nice little individual cakes as easy as 3-2-1.

You need an angel food cake mix.  You also need another cake mix of your choice.  Any flavor you like will do.  Strawberry is great.  Mix the two cake mixes together.  You can do this right in a gallon size plastic ziploc.  Okay, the hard part is done.  (NOTE:  angel food cake makes the other cake mix rise.  You need both.  One or the other won't work alone.)

In a coffee cup or similar size container, stir together the following:

3 tablespoons of your mix
2 tablespoons of water

Try not to get the mixture all over the cup.  Do not grease the cup.

Pop in the microwave for 1 minute.  Let cool for a minute and the mini cake will come out of the cup with nothing more than a knife run around the edge.

Easy right?  Easy as 3 - 2 - 1.  Can be served plain, with a dab of cool whip, or some fruit, or even frosting.

Now this is the kind of baking project that works great with your grandchildren too.  Easy and instant gratification.


  1. We've used this recipe for a long time and love it. That way I don't have a whole cake laying around tempting us or going to waste. And Jim can have his yellow cake and I can have my chocolate.

  2. OMG! Cannot wait to try this. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for sharing, I will have to see if I can get the ingredients here in Mexico.
