3 - 2 - 1 Cake Follow Up

Happy Friday!! I'm so glad that it is the end of the week. The main reason that I am excited is because my hubby is coming home today!! Jon’s been gone all week serving at Children’s Camp. I could not go with them, because I need to save all of my vacation time for my maternity leave. Even though I was home by myself it still ended up being a really good week!

I wanted to follow up with you all about the new recipe I posted for 3 – 2 – 1 Cake. I have received many emails and comments on my Facebook page about this recipe. Thank you all for making sure that I knew there was another version of this recipe. Thankfully, I do know what you’re talking about!

I want to make sure the everyone has both recipes. So, I have posted the recipe for 3 – 2 – 1 Cake Version 1 (the blog I wrote yesterday) and  3 – 2 – 1 Cake Version 2  below.

. . . . . . . . . .
3 - 2 - 1 Cake Version 1

3 Tbsp dry cake mix (any flavor)
2 Tbsp water

For each individual cake serving, take out 3 tablespoons of the dry cake mix and combine it with 2 tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container.

Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have your own instant individual little cake.

Keep remaining cake mix stored in the ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat!

You can top each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit.

Try various flavors of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. The flavor possibilities are endless!

Servings: 1; 2 PointsPlus per serving (this does not include the extra toppings)  
 . . . . . . . . . .

3 – 2 – 1 Cake Version 2

1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box any flavor Cake mix

Put both boxes of dry cake mix in a plastic bag and mix together well. You can store it in the plastic bag or put it in an airtight container.

Next, stir together 3 tablespoons of the mix and 2 tablespoons of water in a coffee mug.

Microwave on high for 1 minute and enjoy!!

Serves: 1; 2 PointsPlus per individual serving
. . . . . . . . . .

Please feel free to use whichever recipe works best for you! Just as an FYI - the 3 – 2 – 1 Cake Version 2 has the angel food cake mix with a regular cake mix, which just makes your cake come out more fluffy than 3 – 2 – 1 Cake Version 1.

I hope this helps! Take time this weekend to try both recipe and see which one you like the best!!

Being home alone can be a great time to recharge your batteries! Take it from a Navy wife! :) I have a "me day" every 3 days (while he has a 24+ hr shift). Though I'll admit, deployments are a bit different - but I get SO much done - including lose more weight! :) I get bored so I work out!
