Recipe Review: Pineapple Angel Food Cake

This past weekend the weather is Texas was in the 80's and 90's! So, when I was supposed to make a dessert for a church potluck I decided to try new! What says summer/spring more than pineapple, coconut, and cool whip?

I have had this recipe for Pineapple Angel Food Cake for a while and I am so glad that I finally made it!

Two ingredients for the cake, angel food cake and crushed pineapple

Mix the two ingredients together.

Pour into a pan that had previously been sprayed with PAM.

Make sure the batter has been evenly distributed and bake.

This is what the Pineapple Angel Food Cake looks like when you take it out of the oven.

After I made the Pineapple Angel Food Cake, I decided to top it with 1/2 cup of coconut and a cool whip pudding icing.

Cool Whip Icing
Adapted From: Dogwood Radiance

Ingredients
8 oz Cool Whip Free
1 small box vanilla pudding mix (dry)

Instructions
In a large bowl, beat together whipped topping, and dry pudding mix until blended. Spread on cake.

Serves: 16; Points+ 3


This was a new way to make icing, so I was nervous about how it would turn out. However it was delicious!

Then I spread the icing on top of the cake.

I topped it with 1/2 cup of coconut.

For fun I added some mandarin oranges to make it look pretty.

This cake was so good!

All together the cake with topping had 16 servings; 4 points+ per piece of cake.

How long do you bake the cake and at what temperature. It sounds delicious!

This was so easy and delicious!!!! I left off the icing and the cake alone was great. Thanks for the recipe. Look forward to exploring your blog!

Heidi said...

Do you drain the pineapple??
Thanks!

Living a Changed Life said...

Heidi - I did not drain the pineapple.

Karen said...

The cake box does not give time & temp for a 9 X 13 pan. How long did you bake yours. I've made this once & I think I overbaked it. This is an easy & delicious cake.

Living a Changed Life said...

Karen - I am not sure. I probably baked mine at 350 degrees for around 30 minutes.

I make this every year for a co-worker's birthday. This year I added 1 tsp. coconut extract. It was delish. I don't top it with anything, and it's perfect!

i did something wrong... it was like rubber cornbread... yuck! i followed recipe to a tee?

Chastity Perdue said...

Does the cake need to be refrigerated because of the icing having cook whip in it? We are cooking it now and it smells delicious!

Anonymous: That also happened to me the first time because I had a two pouch angel food cake mix (didn't know there was a one pouch kind). You have to use the one pouch kind.

I like this variation, I use this recipe, but top the cake with a 2nd can of pineapple, chill and top with cool whip :-)

Love your idea to add coconut to the frosting - I did that, but I also added a cup of milk. So yummy!! Thanks for sharing. I found your blog via a google search for that pineapple/angel food cake.
