A Life Changing Post

This post may be life changing for you or at least someone in your family. I have no clue who the smart person was that figured this out, but let me tell you, it can be a blessing once you discover it and share it with those in need. Are you tempted to eat the entire cake if it is in your house? Do you have a parent who lives alone, loves sweets, but has no need for an entire cake? Do you have small children who need a summer cooking class to keep them busy? Do you have a college student who only has a microwave in their dorm room? The list goes on and on for someone this blog can be very beneficial to. Here is the answer.

Take one regular cake mix, any flavor, and mix together with one Angel Food cake mix. I store mine in a baggy, but I am thinking about getting something more permanent next time since this really turned out great. All you are doing is mixing the two boxes of mix together, no other ingredients for this.

Take an individual microwaveable dish and add three (3) heaping tablespoons of the cake mixture and

Two (2) level tablespoons of water (you do realize you can't "heap" water in a spoon. Ha). Stir until mix and water are combined.

Place in microwave and cook on high for 1 minute

Remove from microwave and you have a light and fluffy individual cake!

If you want a little frosting on your cake.....

try some coconut pecan frosting. This will last for weeks in the refrigerator so you can use it each time you treat yourself or someone else to their own cake.

it is hard to tell, but I added the frosting to this cake. Talk about yummy! And the best thing is, it is nice and warm and so fresh! I used a German Chocolate cake mix for my first try. Remember that the Angel Food cake mix will make your chocolate not so dark, but it still tastes great. This is also fun to do when friends pop in. They will be so impressed with your skills! I think next time I may try it with a sugar free cake mix. At least you would be cutting out half the sugar that way. Wouldn't this be great to take on a vacation where you have a microwave for a late night snack? The possibilities are endless.

Hope you enjoy!

Have a Blessed week!
