3-2-1 Chocolate Cake

It’s my Blogoversary!!

Giveaway now closed!

Two years ago today I pushed publish on my very first post here at I Wash…You Dry. I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I was certain that it was going to be fun. I have had such a great experience writing all these posts, and I have been so blessed to meet some wonderful people.

Looking back at some of my first posts, I am a little embarrassed at the photos, but they are all good recipes, so it’s ok.

To celebrate my Blogoversary {blog-a-versary? blog-i-versary?} I am going to give one lucky reader a $50 Gift Card to one of my favorite stores. Pier One! *See below for details!

But first… Let’s eat some cake!

I just love Pinterest… have I told you that before?

I find so many wonderful ideas, recipes, and inspiration on there. This cake is one of my discoveries.













Say goodbye to the late night, “I-want-a-dessert-but-don’t-want-to-make-a-mess” dilemma. This is a mug cake like you’ve never seen before! I have tried several types of the mug cakes and they all taste eggy, rubbery, and just not good. Not to mention they all take tons of flour, and pulling out a lot of ingredients.

I want easy, I want fast, and I want good.

















Simply mix together a box of Angel Food Cake mix and a box of Chocolate Cake mix in a large bowl with a whisk. Cover with a lid, or put in an air tight container.

Or- put in cute little mason jars for easy gifts to pass along. – attach a simple tag with these directions…














Place 3 tablespoons of mix in a mug.















Add 2 tablespoons of water.

















Mix together, and microwave for 1 minute.













And there you have it! 3-2-1 Chocolate Cake!

Of course, since it’s so easy and practically no clean-up, get out a fancy dish and enjoy! I always keep a can of Redi-whip on hand… it’s very necessary.

This cake is by far, the best Mug Cake I have ever eaten, it’s moist, light and fluffy like an angel food cake, and done in 1 minute.

    No special plans (that I'm aware of) for Mother's Day. The day will probably consist of church, a nap, and work that night…. I'm hoping 'he went to Jared' LOL
