Grandma's Kitchen: Sept. 2, 2016

Linda H. Muir


1 box angel food cake mix (one-step mix)

2 egg whites

1/3 cup strawberry soda pop (or flavor of your choice)

1. Dump the cake mix into a big bowl. Make a hole in the center of the mix. Add the 2 egg whites and the strawberry soda (you will be adding the soda instead of water in this recipe). Follow directions on the box for mixing cake. This will rise quite high and is very good.

2. Serve topped with sliced, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.


1 pkg lemon cake mix

10 oz Cool Whip, thawed

2 tsp grated lemon rind

1 egg

Powdered sugar (for rolling cookies in)

1. Mix all but powdered sugar into balls, and roll about 1 inch in size.

2. Roll in the powdered sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet 1½ inches apart.

3. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.

Linda's Note: Good with any cake mix; I like strawberry and orange also.
