A Cup of Cake

Kids love cake! I love cake! Who doesn't like cake? The Boy likes cake but does not like frosting (weirdo!) The glorious thing about this recipe is that you can have your cake any way you like it and it is the perfect size that you do not feel guilty about having some cake.

A girlfriend of mine told me about this super easy cake recipe. It was so easy and yummy I wanted to share it!

As with any recipe, you start by gathering up your needed supplies. This is easy. Three things. You want to start with a simple, one step Angel Food Cake Mix from a box. Second you need a second cake mix. Any flavor will work. I had a simple white cake on hand so I used it. Third, and last, you need a large air tight container.

The next step is to mix the two cake mixes together. I used a large mixing bowl and a wooden spoon.

Next you take 1/4 of cup of the mixture and add 3 tablespoons of water to it in a coffee cup.

Mix it up well. Microwave it for 1 minute.

Easy enough that your young ones can do it by themselves. (With minimal supervision, that is!)

Afterwards, you have a small portion of cake!

The glorious part, everyone gets to decide how to top their cake! No fighting, no fussing, no picky eaters! Everyone is happy. It is a win-win.

The top cake is topped with fresh peaches and whipped topping. Middle cup is cake topped with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. Bottom cake is topped with hot fudge and whipped topping (it is also a double portion, The Boy is growing!)

With the variety of cake mixes available out there and the wide options for topping, I wonder what you will come up with?

Hope you enjoy this easy recipe as much as we did!
