Weight Watchers Mini Cake | Four Point Microwave Cake

Submitted by Shirley
Chocolate Microwave CakeThis is a great Weight Watchers recipe using either two cake mixes; an angel food cake mix and any other flavor cake mix, or you can use just one cake mix as long as it is a reduced sugar cake mix.   It is delicious either way, and super easy to make.

I buy a box of any flavor cake mix and a box of angel food cake mix, or if I see a reduced sugar cake mix, I’ll get that instead.  I pour the cake mix(es) in a bag and mix them together, if using two.
Then I take 1/3 cup of the cake mix and add 3 tablespoons of water or soda.  I mix that together in a microwave safe bowl or mug and then put it in the microwave for one minute. Voila, I have cake!
I don’t use any frosting.  I just prefer it that way, and I’m cutting the calories even more!  But if you want to use the frosting, use the reduced sugar kind and only use 1 tblsp.
This is a great way to have my cake and eat it too!  And I don’t have to eat a whole cake, just my one serving.  It’s perfect!  And that bag of cake mix lasts a long time, and it’s inexpensive. Whenever I get a hankering for cake, there it is!

Recipe Variations:

This cake recipe can be changed as you’ll see in the video below.  She uses a reduced sugar cake mix instead of the mixture of angel food and another flavor. Either way will work.
You’ll see that she uses soda instead of water.  If you use the mixture of angel food and another flavor, use water.  If you use just one cake mix, use the soda.  Watch this:
