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! 🙂

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!! 🙂

“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! 😉

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. 😉

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!! 🙂
