Family Favorites...Angel Food Pineapple Cake

 I recently got a email from Betty Crocker and saw the recipe for angel food 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. Use pineapple packed in juice to lower the sugar content. 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 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. 
 Lyle and Bettie thought it was very good, and that it was even better the next day. A light, easy to fix, dessert to end a 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
Ingredients
1 box Betty Crocker white angel food cake mix
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
   Heat oven to 350°F.  Spray 10 inch tube pan, or 13x9 pan with cooking spray.
 In a large bowl, mix dry angel food cake mix and crushed undrained pineapple until combined. Pour into pan. (It will start to rise in the bowl).
Bake 40 to 45 minutes until deep golden brown for tube pan or 30 to 35 minutes for a 13x9 pan. Cool tube pan upside down as directed on cake mix box about one hour or 13x9 pan on a wire rack for one hour. Turn out cooled tube pan cake, do not take the cake out of the 13x9 pan. Cut with a serrated knife or break apart with two forks. Garnish with whipped cream and Maraschino Cherries if desired.

    1. No, as you are leaving it in the pan and it just needs to cool on a wire rack. It really is easy and good to eat, all my taste testers lol liked it.
