Classic 3-2-1 Cake | No Thanks to Cake

This throwback recipe gives you access to individual sized cakes on a daily basis, with just a few ingredients. Easy as 1-2-3! I've made this with Devil's Food, Red Velvet, and Yellow Cake Mix. All delicious!


  • 1 box Angel Food cake mix
  • 1 box your favorite cake mix


To Make the Cake Mix:

  • In a large container, combine the two cake mixes - one angel food cake mix + one cake mix of your choice.  Note: This will make a lot of "cake mix" for you to make the individual cakes described below.

How to Make an Individual 3-2-1 Cake

  • Add 3 Tbsp. of the cake mixture you just made to a ramekin, or equivalent microwave-safe container. A mug works great!
  • Add 2 Tbsp. of water, and combine thoroughly.
  • Microwave the mixture for 1 minute and allow to cool for 1 minute before enjoying.
  • Enjoy this fluffy little cake!
