Firecracker cakelettes recipe
Yields 10 – 14
- 1 box white cake mix
- 4 egg whites
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup sour cream
- Red and blue food coloring
- 3 packages Pop Rocks candy
- Black licorice ropes
- White frosting (less than 1/4 cup)
Mix the white cake mix, egg whites, oil, water and sour cream for 3 – 4 minutes on medium speed. Divide the cake batter into 3 equal amounts, and add red and blue food coloring to 2 of the portions. Coat 3 (4 x 9-inch) bread pans with cooking spray, and lightly flour the bottoms. Add the three batters to the pans, and bake at 350 degrees F for 18 – 23 minutes. Allow them to cool, and then remove them from the pans.
