  1. This recipe is so simple and easy but yet so delicious! I like that it’s not super sweet. My new favorite cake recipe thank you so much5 stars

    1. Oh no, sorry to hear that this cake didn’t work for you Adam! Did you use a 16 ounce package of angel food cake? Did you line the pan with parchment paper? I used a 9×13 pan as listed in the recipe. I’ve made this cake many times, and it has never overflowed for me.

  2. if all you can find is the 2 pouch angel food cake mix to let you know it works . it requires mixing the egg white powder with the drained pineapple juice plus enough water as box states until stiff peaks form. next slowly add the cake flour. finally fold in pineapple. bake as stated on box. turns out beautifully

  3. Looking for recipe using store bought angel food cake…torn into pieces mixed with orange sherbet manderine oranges etc etc

    1. That sounds yummy Becky, you could always try adding in oranges to this recipe before baking. Let us know how it turns out!

  4. I was looking for the recipe for just yellow cake mix, crushed pineapple & cool whip. Made it before; it was great and super easy! I just can’t remember the directions for the cake mix. It was not per the box. It either used more or less eggs, no water or maybe less oil…..please help!

    1. I’m sorry, I haven’t made a recipe with yellow cake mix and pineapple. If I see it I’ll be sure to drop a link here.

  5. I made this today, turning the batter out into cupcakes for a baby shower! I only needed 18 cupcakes but the recipe makes 32 … So, yes, I tried them! Delish! I will be frosting with cool whip and adding sprinkles just prior to serving!

  6. Delicious Angel food cake, thanks Thanks for sharing wonderful recipe to Hearth and soul blog hop. pinning
