Have you ever wanted just a little cake right now? Well, a friend of mine explained a super simple way to make cake that is actually healthier than regular cake, tastes pretty good, and goes from cup to mouth in about one minute. I know it sounds impossible but it really works. The secret is using angel food cake mix because it already has the egg whites in it.
It is so simple that rather than give you a recipe, I thought I’d just show you pictorially.
STEP ONE – Buy Angel Food Cake Mix
STEP TWO – Buy Any Other Cake Mix
STEP THREE – Blend Cake Mixes Together in a Large Sealable Container (Shaking Then Stirring with a Fork Works Well)
STEP FOUR – Measure out Three Tablespoons of the Mix
STEP FIVE – Measure out Two Tablespoons of Water
STEP SIX – Combine Mix and Water in Coffee Cup and Stir (Double Recipe Pictured)
STEP SEVEN – Microwave for One Minute
STEP EIGHT – Turn Cake out onto Plate (Double Recipe Pictured)
While cooking and cooling, the cake will have a moderately farty smell (I assume from the egg whites). I expected the cake to be really tough or hard but it is actually more delicate than a normal cake. It can be frosted though. It isn’t nearly as good as “real” cake but overall is a nice substitute when a small cake emergency arises.
For you calorie counters here is nutritional info using the two cake mixes I selected:
