The 3 2 1 Microwave Cake really works!See all activity
I love reading recipes and wonder how all the ingredients mix and taste together when a recipe is completed. When I received the 3 2 1 Microwave Cake recipe in my email, I thought to myself, how could this recipe work with only adding "water" to the ingredients. It's a cake! Cakes need eggs and oil and some need more! So, I researched if someone had actually made it and found someone on Food.com who did and it was successful. So, I had to try it too. I used one Betty Crocker Angel Food mix with one "Pillsbury" Sugar Free Deluxe Moist Devils Food Cake mix.
I placed both inside a "gallon" size zip-lock bag and mixed thoroughly. My 15 year old teen is "large" so I chose to double my recipe. (6 Tablespoons of Cake Mixture to 4 Tablespoons of Water) and mixed by hand well for about a minute. I also sprayed my microwave safe cereal bowl with a "Cooking Spray" to avoid the "dry residue". I poured the mixed batter into the bowl and cooked for under two minutes. Finger Pressed the center and cake sprung back as fully cooked. Cooled the cake for about three minutes and found the sides of the cake broke away well and then flipped the cake upside down inside the same bowl. Now I had a dome chocolate cake. I added sliced banana, scooped out a chocolate/vanilla pudding snack, added whipped cream and chocolate syrup drizzle over the top. My son allowed me to have a taste and it is absolutely chocolately devine! The 3 2 1 recipe works! A great "single" or "double" or more treat in minutes and you add whatever you want or nothing at all! Enjoyfully right!
