Pineapple Angel Food Cake
Pineapple Angel Food Cake is the easiest cake to make and it is so tasty! It is also low fat and is only 4 Weight Watchers points! I found this recipe and thought I would try it out since Angel Food Cake is one of my favorite treats to have. All you need to make this is one 20 oz can of crushed pineapple and one box of angel food cake mix.
I didn’t have a can of crushed pineapple in my stockpile but I did have a can of pineapple tidbits. So I put that in a bowl and used my immersion blender and crushed them up and they looked just the same 🙂 When you mix the pineapple and angel food mix it expands A LOT so make sure you use a very large bowl. Also you want to mix by hand until it is thoroughly mixed well. I love it with Homemade Whipped Cream.
You could also serve it with fat free cool whip for a low fat treat. Another idea for portion control is to make into into 36 cupcakes.

i tried the Angel Food Cake w/pineapple. I used the exact ingredients pictured. It blew up all over my newly cleaned oven!!!!!
Any ideas why?? Also, when I removed it from the oven it had not ccooked at all—and it wasn’t my oven!!!
I have made it twice and mine was perfect. Wonder if you got a bad mix or bad pineapple?
Just made and it turned out great!! Thanks for sharing! No blow ups! lol
I made this cake for Easter dinner. Only difference is I used crushed pineapple instead of the tidbits. Turned out great and was a big hit! Will definately bake this one again!
Small or large can of the pineapple?
20 oz can of pineapple! Happy Baking!
Yum, you had me at pineapple! Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday.
What a great dessert and so easy, I really like easy! Have a fantastic week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!
One of my favorite desserts to make and enjoy!
I don’t understand how this is Gluten Free. The Angel Food cake mix contains wheat flour.
We don’t claim it to be?
Can u use White cake mix instead of angle food?
I am not sure – we used angel food cake mix.
Looks fantastic! How many points is this per serving… I only saw 4 pts… Is this per serving or the entire thing? I’m new to this so I need some clarity please 🙂
Once done reading the whole post, the author actually says that each cup is one point.
I have made this before and it is Fabulous. I think the next time I’m going to add a bit of coconut and make it a pina colada cake!
I make this and add 1/2-cup of shredded coconut !!!! Amazing !!!! And added a tsp of almond extract.
What type of pan should be used? I used aluminum and 30 minutes wasn’t long enough. Toothpick still came out wet even tho the top was starting to burn. Had it on center track.
I’ve made numerous cakes. I’ve done 9 x13,
bundt and two layer. First time, I made it per recipe, then I decided to put Cool Whip for icing and then next time I sprinkled cool whip with so shredded coconut. All were great!!!!!
If you live in higher altitudes(3500 ft or above) add 1-2 tbs cornstarch to mix so it won’t collapse.
Thanks for the tip. I just made it … overflowed onto my nice clean oven. It was baked in a 9X13 glass pan. When turned upside down to cool, the middle of the cake fell out of the pan! No grease, 5000 ft altitude. Tastes good, looks horrible. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
I have made this with mandarin orange too. 2 small cans, chop them up a bit, plus the juice. YUM/
That sounds awesome!
You think it’d be okay if I made it into cupcakes instead of a 13×9?
Oh yes for sure!
Made this cake ,also added 1 cup coconut and 15 chopped maraschino cherries. I did mix the pineapple, coconut & cherries in a separate bowl first. Then added it to the cake mix all one time. I used a tube pan and baked it 45 minutes, It turned out wonderful!
Love that addition!
Should I follow the angel food recipe on the box or should I use the cake mix and pineapple only?
Do not follow the recipe on the box. Just use cake mix and pineapple.
I made this cake and not sure if I did it right there were 2 packages in the angle food cake mix. .I used both and 1 can crushed pineapples. It didn’t rise very well. What did i do wrong?
Can’t wait to use this Angel food cake recipe. I’m going to add walnuts and coconut, now that sound Good.
That does sound good! Let us know!
If I make cupcake
How long should I bake them?
I have made this a few times, but it doesn’t even last a day here everyone loves it
I make this all the time, but I add 1/2-cup of shredded coconut and a tsp of almond extract !!!! Amazing.
I tried the pineapple and Angel food recipe and it turned out like a sponge. Uneatable. What did I do wrong?
What size can of pineapple did you use?
Nothing like waiting til the last minute, but I bought a caramel apple pie filling and angel food cake mix. If the finished product looks like it wants frosting, I bought a can of caramel apple frosting. Hopefully it is like dump cake, choose what kind of pie filling you want. I’ll take a picture!
Can I use a can of berry medley instead of pineapple
Yes, I think so! You can use a can of pumpkin.
Do you have to refrigerate after baking if it’s not to be used until the next day ?
I never refrigerate. 🙂
Fantastic! Couldn’t ask for a better cake!!!
Yay! Happy to hear!
