A Pineapple Angel Of A Cake

I need to stop looking at:

Food blogs
Pinterest dessert pins
Facebook food recipe sharing

Or...maybe not!

This is what's for dessert at my house tonight
 (it was shared on Facebook--no idea where it originated):

One box Angel Food Cake Mix
One 20-ounce can crushed pineapple (don't drain it)
Mix until frothy and no cake mix shows
Pour into greased 9x13 pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes
Serve warm, cold, plain, with whipped cream and/or with blueberries
Is this just too easy!
It was yummy!

A LITTLE SOAPBOX RANT: I have often been totally shocked by the negative comments that are left on food blogs just because someone doesn't like what's in a recipe. If you don't like things made with a package mix, don't make this. If you think it is too sweet for your taste, don't make it. If overall this DOES NOT look like something you want to make or would eat, please do not make it. Most of all, I'd rather you don't tell me what's wrong with this recipe and what ingredients are going to rot my teeth or put more fat on my body. Really, I like sweet things in moderation (or sometimes I like to pig out.) I like package mixes for their convenience. In fact, I thought this was pretty darn good for something quick when you're short on time or just lazy (like me.)  Stepping off the soapbox now. 

P.S. I'm so thankful that no one has ever left me a comment telling me my sewing project was ugly and they hated it. LOL! Quilters are just the nicest people!

This is from That Other Lady:


  1. Hi Carol. I have that recipe. Delicious! I got it off the Alzheimers website. It is fast and easy to make for people caring for their Alzheimer loved ones at home. Works for working moms, busy people etc, My directions say to cut it with a plastic knife. I like it because you can use it as a snacking cake, or dress it up for dessert.

  2. Amen and amen! Looks delicious and none of your sewing projects are ugly or I would tell you.
    just kidding
    xo jan

  3. WELLLLLL I was going to say, ahhhh
    No seriously, I think that is a pretty good looking treat if I say so myself...and I'm with Jan, you know if I did not like any of your quilt endeavours..YOU know I would NOT say anything, because then I would WIN....

  4. I've had that cake and it was wonderful. And now that you brought it back to mind I'll have it again. Loved your rant too.

  5. This desert sounds like something I will definitely be making for my grandson. It is fast and easy without a lot of ingredients.
    Amen on the Soapbox piece. It bugs me to no end to hear someone complain about something when it would be so easy for them to just leave and if they don't like that place, then just stay away. No one is making them go there. If I don't like a blog, then I don't visit. It is as simple as that.

  6. Good for you for saying something I agree so much, I get so tired of being lectured all the time about the food I eat , if you don't like it don't make it but let the rest of us enjoy.

  7. I make this recipe all of the time and it is delicious. The only thing different is, I put mine in a tube or loaf pans.

  8. This is a perfect Weight Watchers recipe - can't wait to try it! :) blessings, marlene

  9. Hah! If I'd read this yesterday when you'd written it, I wouldn't have been standing in the cake mix aisle of the market last night with my mom on the phone, trying to remember what went into the recipe!

    We made this last winter and were pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out (and how easy!). I'm thinking of adding some drained mandarin oranges to my next one :-)

  10. I have got to pin this recipe! I will be making this weekend! Love it!
