        Another version of this cake is to place one dry cake mix in a large ziploc bag. Add a box of angel food cake mix to it. Mix it up. When ready for a personal size cake, use 3 Tbsp mix with 2 Tbsp water. Heat on high in microwave for 1 minute. Put icing, glaze, or whipped topping on top and enjoy!

        I've made the angel food recipe mix. I like to top it with some thawed frozen berries and pour on a little heavy whipping cream. The cream tones down the tang from the angel food cake mix a little bit.

        This is one of my favorite recipes. I bought inexpensive containers & when cake mixes are on sale for BOGO I stock up. Love strawberry, orange & pineapple & have also red velvet & spice & German chocolate. I just put the regular cake mix & the angel food cake mix in the container & cover & shake well & follow above directions. I sometimes add a few drops of orange or pineapple or lemon extract also to make more intense flavor & mint in a regular chocolate cake mix is awesome & my grand-daughters favorite. They store well & keep a long time unless I have company. I let everyone pick their own flavor!

        My question is I make all my cakes from scratch. There is even a cake mix I make and keep in a jar for my "Mom I need a cake in 3 hours" as I walk into the door emergency. Can I use this cake mix instead of the boxed?
