3 2 1 Cake

It's been years since I made mug cake ... or what's better known as "3, 2, 1 Cake". In the Weight Watcher world this is a little ingenious recipe to have portion size dessert on hand, whenever the mood may seem fit. The greatest part is you can tailor it to your mood/craving depending on what you decide to mix together. For instance you could swap out the flavors cake mix for anything ...chocolate, strawberry, lemon, etc. The possibilities are quite endless.

All you need is 1 box of Angel food cake and 1 box of cake mix (any flavor of your choice).
Mix the two together and store in an airtight container.  When you want to make yourself a cake (single serving) all you need to mix together are:
* 3 tbsp cake mix (this is the combined cake mix)
* 2 tbsp water
* stir together and cook in the microwave for 1 minute
Typically, I like to spray the inside of my mug with a little non-stick cooking spray (just to make the clean up easier) and then add in my cake mix and water. You can either eat the cake straight out of the mug, or you can add it onto a plate and top it with some fruit, whipped cream, etc.  The world is your pickle and it'll satisfy any flavor you're looking for in the moment.
This particular cake is 3 points plus per serving (but the points can be 2 points plus depending on the type of cake mix used).
