Ingredients for Pineapple Angel Food Cake  

Angel Food Cake – Any box of angel food cake mix will work but make sure you select the box that’s just one package (16 oz) instead of two.

Pineapple – Use a can of crushed pineapple with juices, and skip the other ingredients mentioned on the box. The pineapple juice is what makes this cake so moist.

How to Make Pineapple Angel Food Cake

There won’t be much waiting around for this dessert to be ready!

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Pour the prepared cake batter into a prepared pan.
  3. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

We most often bake this in a 9×13 pan but it can be baked in an ungreased angel food cake pan or tube pan for 40-45 minutes. A bundt pan is not recommended as it will be hard to remove.

Top with whipped topping or whipped cream. Garnish with pineapple rings, blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, colored sprinkles, toasted coconut, or chocolate curls.

Cool the cake completely before adding toppings. Add a dollop of whipped topping (like Cool Whip) to make it easy or whip up a batch of homemade whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This pineapple angel food cake can be topped with fruit like fresh berries, peaches, or mango. It’s also great sprinkled with shredded coconut.

Cutting Angel Food Cake

Angel food cake is tender and delicate so be sure to use a serrated knife to gently slice. It cuts best when it has been chilled.
