    faster and easier would be the 3-2-1 cake, take an Angel Food Cake Mix and a Carrot Cake Mix (one has to be Angel Food) mix together, take 3 tbs of the combined mix, 2 tbs of water, mix in a mug, place in the microwave for 1 minute. add whatever topping you want. rest of mix in airtight container - 7/9/14

    This cake is delicious and so easy and quick to make. You only need 1 teaspoon of stevia and it is sweet enough. I used light cream cheese with stevia for filling. You could use jam or any other filling you like if you don't like tofu. I think I will throw a few raisins in next time. Yummy. - 10/4/13

    We made this using Splenda and more carrot.I left out the baking powder since I didn't have it and it was still delish. I also used cream cheese for the icing as we are not lactose intolerant. ALSO a great tip is to lightly oil the mug first. So much easier to clean. - 12/11/13

    Can regular flour be used instead of almond flour? Will use low fat cream cheese instead of tofu. - 10/4/13
