Angel Food Pineapple Cake

 I recently got a email from Betty Crocker and saw the recipe
for Angel Food Pineapple Cake. I used to make this several years ago for my daughter who was in Weight Watchers at the time. It has no fat and all angel foods are good for dieters. Using pineapple packed in juice lowers the sugar content also. Fresh pineapple won't work here as it needs the juice that the canned is packed in. This is the only liquid used.
 This is so easy that anyone can make it, great for children who like to help in the kitchen and are just learning. The recipe calls for an angel food pan but I won’t use spray in my pan. It never cleans out again and that will ruin your pan for a regular angel food. I baked mine in a 9x13 pan, you could use two 9 inch bread pans or make it into cupcakes. I do think the cupcakes would be messy as you need to work fast after it is mixed. 
 Lyle and Bettie thought it was very good, and that it was even better the next day. A good light, easy to fix, dessert to end a Easter meal. After a heavier meal, it is always nice to have a light dessert. Dress it up with whipped cream and cherries if you want it to look special.

Angel Food Pineapple Cake

  1. Hi Gill, Everyone thought it was good and better the next day if you have any left. Nice not to have to get out the mixer also.
    Good after a heavy meal or for a coffee break.
