Simple cake

Last year, my readers told me how much they like the simple cake made with a chocolate cake mix and a can of cherries.

Well, I’ve got another one for you that’s even easier. It’s a pineapple cake with two ingredients: an angel food cake mix, which is naturally fat free, and a can of crushed pineapple in its own juice. I’m not kidding. That’s all you put in this delicious cake.

While looking for a “light” dessert recipe, I ran across this super-simple dessert recipe. I couldn’t wait to try it, because, as I’ve said before, I love to experiment with recipes that intrigue me. And I was intrigued by a two-ingredient cake!

I made the cake for dinner one night and topped it with a dollop of light whipped topping, and we loved it! My husband, Reggie, and I are pineapple fans anyway, so I knew it would be a hit. My 3-year-old granddaughter even had a slice and liked it!

We kept the cake on the counter for several days, and Reggie and I didn’t feel guilty about having a slice of it for a snack.

If you like pineapple and want a quick and easy treat, give this recipe a try!

Pineapple Angel Food Cake
  • Angel Food cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
  • 14.5 oz. can of crushed pineapple in its own juice (un-drained)
Add cake mix and pineapple to bowl and combine with a mixer for about 2 minutes.

Use back of box instructions for type of greased pan you use and bake accordingly. The cake box might say to use ungreased pan, but I greased the pan for this recipe.


  1. I made this cake tonight in bundt pan and it is scrumptious.
    Thanks for this recipe, Lisa.

  2. Dinner could be the most important part from the day in your case because it is the time
    when all of your respective family extends to sit together and eat.
    Any form of liquid that's left within the glassware for the long period of energy will leave its stains on it. You should think about this factor, and whether or not this is a big deal to you.
