I have an amazingly easy…and delicious dessert recipe for you guys today. The 4th of July is right around the corner – and whether you are having a gathering at your house or heading out to one, a yummy dessert is always a good item to have for everyone to enjoy. I really like this Pineapple Angel Food Cake recipe because it is also low fat, in fact it’s even an Weight Watchers approved recipe 🙂
As you can see, it only takes TWO main ingredients! It doesn’t get much easier than that folks! I went to Target and grabbed Del Monte Pineapple Tidbits in 100% juice, some peaches for garnish and a box of Angel Food Cake mix and I was on my way to a making dessert. I love that this recipe calls for canned pineapple. The canning process locks in the nutrients at the peak of ripeness – just hours after picking, so I know that my Pineapple Angel Food cake will be the best 🙂 And if for some reason I don’t feel like making it right away, I can easily put the cans in the pantry for another day and I don’t have to worry about the pineapple going bad.
Plus, have you seen the price of pineapple at the produce stand – if you are lucky you can get one for about $4…my Del Monte Canned Pineapple in 100% Juice was under $1.50! In fact, my whole dessert cost me about what the price of one pineapple would cost.
Now, here’s the recipe:
- Angel Food Cake Mix
- 20oz Can of Crushed Pineapple with 100% juice
- Low fat or fat free Cool whip
- Combine cake mix and pineapple (with juice) in a bowl and mix
- As you can see, I didn't use an Angel Food Cake pan...I used two pie plates so I could layer them with a cool whip center
- Pour equal amount of batter into two pie plates
- Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes or until golden brown
- When you take them out of the oven - let them cool. Put one layer on a serving plate - add a layer of low-fat or fat-free cool whip
- Top with the 2nd layer
I served mine with a side of canned peaches, the extra fruit was a fun added touch.
