Desserts From the Frugal Diva

Now that we have some yummy dinner dishes, we need to satisfy the sweet tooth with dessert. Like the ground beef and chicken recipes, I am giving you instructions for quick and easy with ingredients you can find anywhere.

We don’t eat a lot of desserts but occasionally, we get a sweet craving and there’s nothing in the house or it’s too late to fix something. The first recipe I am going to share is for just, such an occasion.

3-2-1 Cake

This little gem is a single serving of pure delight. You can make it as simple or as fancy as you want.

Ingredients:

1 box Angel Food cake mix

1 box regular cake mix, your choice of flavor

In re-sealable bowl, combine both boxes of cake mix. Keep sealed when not using. Mix can be stored in pantry or freezer.

Directions:

In small microwave safe dish mix:

3 tablespoons cake mixture

2 tablespoons water

Microwave on high for 1 minute.

3-2-1: 3 tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in microwave.

These little cakes are so delicious and the only thing you add is water. Get creative with your cake mix flavors. Top with icing, dust with powdered sugar or just eat plain.

My favorite style is chocolate fudge. I use chocolate fudge cake mix and stir 1 tablespoon of hot fudge sauce into the batter. When the cake is done, I spread hot fudge sauce on top for icing. It is so good and tastes like one of those expensive, little cakes you see in a restaurant.

Use strawberry cake mix, slice fresh strawberries over cake and top with Cool Whip. Or butter pecan cake with caramel topping.

Easy Peach Crumble

I love peaches and next to strawberries, they are my favorite fruit. I home can my own peaches so I’m not sure on the exact size of canned peaches you need but it takes 1 large can (maybe 46 ounces?) or 2 small cans. It doesn’t matter whether you get heavy or light syrup because the peaches will be drained.

1 box white cake mix

1 large can sliced peaches

Topping:

1 stick butter or margarine, softened

1 cup flour, sifted

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Make cake mix according to package directions. Spread batter in greased, oblong baking dish. Drain peaches and layer slices on top of cake batter.

In bowl, mix sifted flour, sugar and cinnamon. Add butter or margarine. With fork or pastry blender cut in butter until you have coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over top of cake and peaches. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until topping is brown and knife comes out clean when inserted in cake.

Top with ice cream or whipped topping. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
