Pineapple Angel Food Cake

There is nothing harder than trying to diet and ignore a sweet tooth craving. A friend of mine gave me this recipe a few years ago. It is easy to make and light on the calories.

  • Things You'll Need:
  • Angel Food Cake Mix
  • [1] 20oz can crushed pineapple in it's own juice
  • LARGE Springform Pan

NOTE: You can use a 9x13 pan also, put parchment paper in the bottom for easy lift out.

Step 1: Open one angel food cake mix (I used Duncan Hines) and empty mix into a large bowl. Make sure that you use a mix that is a one step mix.

Step 2: Stir in one 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple. Do not drain. Make sure that you use pineapple packed in water or its own juice. Do not use pineapple packed in syrup.

Step 3: Beat the pineapple into the cake mix until all ingredients are moistened. Don't use anything BUT the cake mix and the entire can of pineapple (no water, etc).

Step 4: Pour into a LARGE, UNgreased springform pan and bake according to box directions.

Step 5: Take the side off of the cake and allow to cool before slicing with a serrated knife using a sawing motion.

Tip: To make it easier to release the cake trace the bottom pan piece onto parchment paper and line the bottom. Gently invert the cooled cake and peel paper off before slicing.

Happy Baking,
