3-2-1 "cup" cakes

{photo from Betty Crocker website}

1 box angel food cake mix
1 box cake mix ~ any flavor

Mix the 2 cake mixes together in a gallon zip-lock bag.

3 ~ To make the cake: put 3 tablespoons cake mix in a coffee/tea cup
2 ~ Mix this with 2 tablespoons water
1 ~ Bake in a microwave 1 minute (cake will pull away from the sides of the cup)

I sometimes add a spoonful of chocolate chips on top when it comes out so they melt

Let this rest for 5-10 minutes and serve
Topping ideas: powder sugar, frosting, choc chips, fruit, whipped cream

{about 80 calories}

I have also made these in a cupcake paper in a small Pyrex bowl.

My dear friend at Vista Woman shared this recipe on her blog.

I bet this is yummy with angel food cake and maybe lemon cake. Of course you can't go wrong with chocolate!

I told Christine that I can't wait to try this, and now I am even more inspired. The 80 calorie part is fun in my book. Thank you!
