Recipe: Easy Pineapple Angel Food Cake

When I say Pineapple Angel Food Cake is easy... I mean easy.. amazingly easy... with only THREE ingredients and it's amazingly good!  ... And best of all..... drum roll please.... GUILT-FREE !!
This recipe has been floating around the net ... actually it may even qualify for going viral if it were a video... it apparently came from Weight Watchers originally.
This a fat free cake... I know.. it just doesn't seem quite right... cake and fat free in the same sentence...  but when you put those two words together... I'm game.. I'll try it... and we really, really liked it!
You could put a topping on it... honestly I don't think it's needed...
About the only negative thing to say about this cake is... this cake was very difficult to cut... although the original and most copied recipes don't say to spray the pan with cooking spray... in fact the original recipe tells you not too... I would tell you it's a MUST....
Also.. as you can see by the picture .. I used a glass baking dish...  I think a good non-stick pan would work better.  We will definitely do this recipe again... and I will try it and see if it's better and let you know.. if you try it.. by all means leave a comment.
Finally.... the next time I make this.. I will be making it as cupcakes... I think it will solve the tough cutting issue... baking time for cupcakes... I will shoot for about 10-12 minutes... testing with a toothpick .. if it comes out clean... out of the oven it will come.  Fill them about 3/4 full... the batter will be poofy.
If you do make the optional topping... you can also use coconut cream instant pudding instead of the vanilla.   Add a sprinkling of toasted coconut flakes.

Reminder:  this is a THREE ingredient cake... you need the cake mix, vanilla and the crushed pineapple... do not add water that's listed on the cake mix package.
Try this guilt-free delicious cake!

Recipe:  Easy Pineapple Angel Food Cake
All you need:
1 pkg. Betty Crocker White Angel Food cake mix (the one that only adds water in the directions)
1 large can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple
1 teaspoon vanilla
Optional Topping:
2 cups Cool Whip
1 pkg. (3 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix *See TIPS
1 small can crushed pineapple
All you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pineapple (juice and all) and vanilla.  Mix until well combined, the batter will be poofy.
Pour into a non-stick 9 x 13 pan.
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the top is a light brown.  I baked mine for 25 minutes.
Cool completely.
Optional topping:
In a medium bowl, mix the juice from the small can of crushed pineapple with the pudding mix.  Fold in the Cool Whip.  Then fold in the crushed pineapple.
If you use the topping, refrigerate any leftovers.
