STAGNATION MY FOOT:

An instant classic: single-serve microwave cake  (LINDA CICERO, 2/16/12, Miami Herald)

Single Serve 3-2-1 Cake is bound to become one of those instant Cook's Corner classics. Reader Bunny Shea emailed the recipe to me because she knew readers would love it. I was so intrigued I ran right out to pick up the two cake mixes required.

What you get is a mix that in minutes produces four dozen single servings of a sweet something resembling a cupcake. It's a perfect mix to mail away to children at school or friends in the service, since all they need to "bake" a single serving is a mug or bowl, a microwave and water. [...]

It is easy to remember how to make the cake if you remember it is called 3-2-1: You use 3 tablespoons of the mix stirred with 2 tablespoons water and microwave 1 minute. But go ahead and put an index card into the bag with directions.



Single Serve 3-2-1 Cake Mix

1 box angel food cake mix

1 box any flavor cake mix

Mix: In a gallon-size, self-sealing food-storage bag, mix the dry ingredients from the two cake mixes. Seal bag (or transfer to other airtight container) and store in pantry up to 3 months, using as needed. Makes about 6 cups mix, which will make 48 small cakes.

Cake: For each individual cake serving, measure 3 tablespoons of the mix into a small microwave-safe container, such as a mug or bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons water. Microwave on high for 1 minute. If desired, top each cake with whipped topping or a sprinkling of confectioners' sugar.
