Also known as 3-2-1 cake, this popular dessert is touted for being the easiest cake ever. In this version, the batter is baked in a pan with higher sides (often called "professional" cake pans) than normal, so be sure to use the right size pan (or you will need to divide the batter between two regular cake pans to prevent the batter from overflowing in the oven and making a big mess).
