Several weeks ago I heard about this 321 cake. I am not really sure how it stared but I guess it is pretty popular on Weight Watchers since it is only 1 points plus point. So since I am trying to loose a little weight yet still have a VERY BIG sweet tooth I thought I would give it a try. I was very suprised at how much cake you actually get and how yummy and quick this is.
So the other day when my girls wanted a treat I thought why not make this for them! It is perfect for the kids since it is a single serving so I don’t have to make a whole batch of cupcakes and then eat half of them (okay I eat more than half but who’s counting).
Not only is this a quick easy treat for the kids but since you are only mixing water into the cake mix you are giving them a lower fat/calorie treat than a regular cupcake. Most cupcakes are made with oil and eggs and this one has none of that. I wont go so far as to say this is healthy because lets face it this is cake from a box. But it is a healthier option than a regular cupcake. The trick is the Angel Food Cake Mix, that cake is so light and fluffy and that is what makes this work. The 2nd cake mix can be any cake you like. We used Devils Food, but my sister is using Lemon cake mix. So you pick what you like best.
We also added whip cream and sprinkles since this was for the kids and those are both totally optional. If you are looking at Weight Watcher points adding them will increase your points, and they also add more calories to this yummy treat. My girls however are not watching their weight and the whole point of this was to make them a yummy quick treat where we would not have a ton of extra treats left over for mommy to eat (since I am watching my weight).
