Pineapple Angel Food Cake

May 7, 2013

This Pineapple Angel Food Cake is made with just four ingredients, one bowl, and will be the hit of your springtime gatherings!

Oh, Pinterest – the website that binds us together one pin at a time.   It’s my Google.   When somebody asks me, “Where did you find that?” I usually answer with, “Pinterest.” Someone once told me about one of their favorite Pinterest finds for a simple angel food cake.  It’s made with boxed cake mix, crushed pineapple, and a couple other ingredients.

The cake sounded so good that I had to try it that weekend!  The smells wafting from the oven while it baked assured me that it was going to be delicious!  This cake has been made for family springtime gatherings and Easter.  It’s a light and fluffy cake with a bright burst of pineapple. I added shredded coconut for a tropical touch of sweetness.

The cake will be nice and fluffy when it comes out of the oven, but upon cooling it will sink down a bit.  Make sure you allow the cake to cool completely before serving.  I was also told that the cake is good with a can of cherries instead of pineapple. This might be a good cake to win mom over for Mother’s Day.  Add her favorite fruit (make sure you get a can of it with juice) instead of pineapple!
