Two Ingredient Pineapple Angel Food Cake

Of course you can use any brands you wish but I typically buy what is on sale, period! There’s no draining or cumbersome mixers required, just what you see here. I prefer a spatula over a spoon on this one because you need to be somewhat gentle with angel food cake mix. Let’s just dirty one utensil shall we.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake

Even simpler than our peach angel food cake, adding fruit into the mix just makes this treat even more moist and delicious. These are the basic steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a bowl combine cake mix and can of crushed pineapple
  3. Gently mix until all powder is combined well, do not overmix
  4. Pour into 9 by 13 pan that’s been lightly sprayed with non stick spray
  5. When oven is up to temp. bake for 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown on top as seen
  6. Allow to cool completely in pan before slicing

Can you use a 9×13 pan for angel food cake?

  • I don’t unless I am making this.
  • There is no rule that says you must bake an angel food cake in a tube pan.
  • It can be made in a 9 X 13!
  • In a tube pan however it how it gets its height. It sticks to the sides and crawls up the pan. 

You cool this version upside down. If using a 9 by 13 you don’t invert the pan.

Angel Food Pineapple Cake 9×13

I’m assuming you’d made a traditional angel food cake before right??!! I will admit I’ve never made one from scratch because well if I can buy it for under $3 in the store and it tastes fantastic without a lot of work on my part then ummmmm that is what I am going to do.

  • However….I will say this is my all time FAVORITE cake even as simple as it is mixed with water.

Growing up this was my pick each year my grandmother asked me what kind of cake I wanted for my family birthday dinner celebration. 😉

Of course she/and I always used the special pan to make it but this pineapple angel food cake recipe just needs your 13×9 pan you have right there in your cupboard. I know it’s there……I prefer glass.

Can you add fruit to angel food cake mix?

You can, we add crushed pineapple with angel food cake mix here and show you how it is done. These two ingredients can be made in a cake pan and is Weight Watchers friendly. It is heavier and more dense because of the added weight but delicious and a sweet treat we love.

Why is my angel food cake flat?

If you added canned fruit like we show you here it will not rise very much, that is normal. If it is regular baked in a tube pan there are two likely reasons; you opened the door too soon or you sprayed the inside of the pan with non stick spray. You shouldn’t do that, it needs to be dry.

Unlike our Chocolate angel food cake just 3 ingredients, don’t forget to spray the inside with non stick spray because it will stick a bit, and let it cool when it comes out but once that is done it’s light and fluffy like you remember but a bit more dense and filled with that yummy pineapple flavor!

  • I think next time I am going to have it cool, swipe a bit tub of whipped topping across the top and sprinkle it with coconut!!

Crushed Pineapple Angel Food Cake

Sometimes this is called the weight watchers pineapple cake because it’s so low in calories but a great treat nontheless. 😉 This is all you need:

  1. Large bowl
  2. box of angel food cake mix
  3. 1 can of crushed pineapple
  4. 13×9 pan is used vs. a traditional tube pan

If you do have leftovers you want to transfer into some plastic wrap and fold over so there is no air inside. That will keep it as moist as possible to enjoy again the next day. Ideally it should be finished within 24 hours. Here are a few other angel food cake mix recipes.

Angel Food Cake with Pineapple

Dump angel food cake mix and canned crushed pineapple together, you may be able to mash other canned fruit like our Dump peach cobbler but haven’t tried that yet. Gently stir until all powdered mix is mixed in well. Do not overmix. If your box has a separate package of egg whites, add all in together. Preheat oven to 350 degrees at this time

  1. Lightly spray a 13×9 pan with non stick spray and pour this batter in, smooth out on top.
  2. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown and middle is firming up when touched.
  3. Remove from oven and allow this to cool in the pan on cooling rack.
  4. Cut and serve with berries and/or whipped topping.

I think the recipe needs to specify to use an angel food cake mix that only needs water. Mine was not that type and it didn't rise at all.

This is a delicious cake and so easy to make.

I love this recipe I add a twist to it. I take a package of Sugar free jello cheesecake pudding mix, mix it with 1 cup milk and then fold in a 8oz container of cool whip. Spread over the top of the cake. Yum! I've also broken ou the check and layered in. Trifle bowl. First cake, then cheesecake mixture, fresh strawberries ND raspberries, lite cool whip, then repeat.

I did as the directions said, however, 350 for 30 to 35 minutes isn’t nearly enough. I took it out and it sank in the middle. I had to cook an additional 25 minutes and it stayed sunk in the middle. Tasted ok though.

There's no way it should take 55 minutes to bake, if removed too early yes it would sink and wouldn't rise again.
