3-2-1 Cake



Last summer at a college roommate retreat, my wonderful roommate Vicki Topliff shared this fun, easy and tasty recipe with us.  I thought it would be a great gift to give to your children’s teachers, neighbors or friends.   The gift cost $1.25 and takes very little time to assemble.

SUPPLIES:
  • You will need a cake mix of your choice (mine is always chocolate).  Half of the box will fit in the mug—so you get 2 gifts out of each box.  (Add 3 tsp cornstarch to your box of cake mix to give a light and fluffy texture and eliminate the need for eggs.)
  • A mug (I got mine at a thrift store for 50 cents)
  • A plastic bag (a Ziploc sandwich or quart bag will work or a seasonal treat bag)
  • A 3x5 card for the recipe
  • Ribbon to decorate the bag

ASSEMBLING:

  • Put half of the cake mix in the bag.
  • Put the bag in the mug
  • Tie the top of the bag with the ribbon
  • Attach the recipe

RECIPE:
  • 3 tablespoons cake mix
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Mix with a spoon in the mug until well blended
  • 1 minutes on high in the microwave
  • Yield:  1 cupcake size cake


ENJOY:
  • Top with ice cream or berries or both
  • A half a cake mix will make 12 cupcakes—many days of fun and enjoyment.
