Pineapple Angel Food Cake



Pineapple Angel Food CakeA couple of weeks ago I was scouring the internet, looking for yummy recipes to try out, when I saw an inviting recipe a friend had shared. It had two ingredients, sounded delicious and was even low fat! Color me intrigued! I saved the recipe for when I needed a dessert to share that was quick to prepare and easy on the thighs, and dug into the preparation. I must say, Princess Peach and I enjoyed making this one, and everyone enjoyed eating it. If you’re looking for a simple, quick and fun recipe to whip up with a small child, this one would work even for a child with a short attention span (or a big person short on time).

Now, on to the “whatcha need” and “how to” part of things! πŸ™‚

One, Two, Tada!!

Two Ingredient Cake!


Here’s a picture of Princess Peach with the “whatcha needs”. Can you handle all those ingredients?? This is for real, folks! No water, no eggs, no anything other than angel food cake mix and a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple. Easy peasy!! πŸ™‚

“How To”…

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Next- wait for it– you dump them both in a big mixing bowl and stir them together with this high tech stirramajigger gadget otherwise known as a spoon. I don’t know how well you can tell in this picture, but the batter does this neato fizzy and fluffy texture that Princess Peach and I thought was pretty fun.

Fizzin' and Fluffin'

Easy peasy cake batter!


Pour this fluffy fizzy concoction into a greased Wilton 9×13 Pan
, pop it into the oven for about 25 minutes or until the top is lightly brown and a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

This next step is optional, unless you are my little princess, then it is mandatory. While your cake is baking, lick the mixing spoon to taste test your latest creation. Go ahead! You know you wanna! πŸ˜‰

This would be really good with some Cool Whip on top of it and maybe even some pineapple topping
, but it is also delicious plain. It was a definite hit with our family! It is moist and can even be eaten with your hands, which is a big plus for toddlers. Did I mention it is also low fat? Uh-huh, I said it! You can thank me later. πŸ˜‰

What’s your favorite dessert? We love alot of different kinds at our house. My husband loves all things peanut butter, my daughter’s a strawberry fiend, and I love chocolate. Honestly, we just enjoy all things sweet just a little too much, I’ve gotta admit. This is a new one to add to our ever growing arsenal of delectability, for sure!

Why are you still sitting here??? Get to baking!! πŸ™‚

  1. Reblogged this on allaboutmanners and commented:


  2. That looks fantastic. I will give it a try this week.


  3. That is crazily simple! I never heard of it! We go through eggs like crazy here so there have been plenty of times that I have gone to make a box cake and have had no eggs on hand!!


  4. What?! your teasing right? I mean I am going to try this recipe and its not going to turn out…your pulling our leg? I can seriously make a cake with no eggs? I have gotta try this this weekend!


  5. When making this make sure to get the Duncan Hines Angel Food Cake Mix .. I say this because the other brands have another pack of stuff you put in it and it doesn’t turn out the same!! It is delicious and I found this scrolling on social media.. I just wasn’t sure if the bake time was the same and it is a little shorter actually than what the box say’s lol.. Yummo!! Especially if you are a pineapple person.. But I was thinking of maybe adding some Strawberry Nectar to one and seeing if we could make a Strawberry Angel Food Cake that would be awesome in my household lol.. I do know that if you take the Nectar and replace the liquid in your cake mix especially the cheap ones your cake comes out with more flavor and is more moist!!!! Great LowFat Sweet Treats love it!!!!!


    • It’s a good thing I got Duncan Hines, huh? The recipe I saw didn’t mention that. Thanks!
      I want to try it with maybe some blueberry pie mix or things like that. I think it would turn out good, but haven’t tried it. When I get around to trying a different flavor, I’ll blog about it if it turns out well. I won’t be able to resist sharing. πŸ™‚
      That’s a good tip about replacing the liquids with strawberry nectar. Sounds yummy!!


      • Your welcome.. I made the pineapple one today and there is like 2 pieces left lol.. I didn;t think about the pie mixes that sounds yummo!!! I just found your site today I will be checking it out more!!


      • I have made this using 2 cans of Lemon Pie filling. Yum! Looking forward to trying this one.


  6. We gobbled ours up, too. It’s really good! πŸ™‚
    You can always “like” my site on Facebook or follow via email, if you like. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen.


  7. It has to be a “one step” angel food cake mix-the one you only have one package of ingredient. It’s a Weight Watchers favorite.


  8. Too bad I didn’t se the Duncan Hines remark. I used Betty Crocker mix and the cake fell after I took it out of the oven.
