3 - 2 - 1.....

Does that sound like "blast-off" should be the next word?:-)  Actually, this is a very simple recipe that I have recently learned that is good for those of us who may be watching our weight.  I have no information about point value, in case you may wonder.  I read this recipe while at my church taking care of some UMW things, and I immediately thought that it should become part of my files.:-)

One box of angel food cake mix has been poured into a plastic bag.

The box of chocolate cake mix has been mixed with it.

Two tablespoons of water has been mixed into the three tablespoons of mix.

Here is the very simple recipe for this single-serving dessert.  

3 - 2 - 1 CAKE

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

Combine these two cake mixes until well blended.

Measure:  three tablespoons of the blended mix
                 two tablespoons of water
Mix them well in the ramekin.
Cook in the microwave for 1 minute at high power.
There you have it!  An individual dessert serving, just enough for one!
                          You might want to add a bit of whipped topping.:-)  I enjoyed it just the way it is!

Thank you so much for reading!  I enjoy your comments!
