Easy, Light Summer Cake-Only 2 Ingredients!

     My plan this week was to link my recipe for Peach-Lime Sorbet with Michael @ Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday. If you didn't see that post earlier this week, you might want to check it out. It is a delicious and easy sorbet. However, I made this cake yesterday and it was so easy that I didn't want to wait another week to share it with all of you.

See these 2 ingredients...that is all you need!

Pineapple Angel Food Cake

1 package angel food cake mix
1 20oz can crushed pineapple in fruit juice (not in heavy syrup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 pan with Pam. Mix the dry cake mix with the pineapple plus the juice with mixer for 1 1/2 minutes at medium speed. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes.

     When your cake comes out of the oven it will be brown and puffy. It will settle a little bit as it cools. You can top it with whipped cream, fresh fruit or just sprinkle it with powdered sugar. I topped mine with Cool Whip. I prefer real whipping cream, but I was trying to keep it light. I bought the Light Cool Whip and added a teaspoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of cinnamon to make it taste a little more "homemade".

It would also be very good with the Peach-Lime Sorbet.

This looks delicious, It would probably make a great base cake for strawberry shortcake?

THe twins could make this!

I love easy, and this one would be great for the boys to do...they are experimenting with baking/cooking by themselves.

Wow! Looks and sounds so yummy!
Do you like my flickr pics coming into your feeder? I am just testing it out and would love to hear your feedback. Have a sweet day!

Hi Sue!
Isn't angel food cake in the box...just a dream of a cake! Now you add pineapple... wow...that's great!!!
I always keep an extra box of that mix in the basement pantry...just in case {hey, you just add water!}
If we sprinkle a little coconut on top of the whipped cream... it can be a aloha cake :o)

I also LOVE the blue of your seaside tablescape! very summer...
It would be fun to put this back out in January or February when we need a little pick me up from winter!

Thank you for all your visits and sweet words of encouragement ... they really mean a lot; the thoughts and prayers of others really do carry us.

God bless you, Sue ♥

How easy! It looks delish too...thanks so much for sharing. I'll have to read back and see about the sorbet. It's been a crazy, busy week for me so haven't been online much.

You're always in my thoughts & prayers!


Jaime said...

Oh yummy!

You know what? I always thought you had to use one of those big circular tins to make an angel food cake, but now I see I am wrong!
This looks scrumptious!
A perfect easy summer delight.
Thank you for sharing!

Ahh! Boxed cakes. One of the things I miss from life in America. Thanks for visiting my blog Sue, nice to visit yours. I was raised in Illinois, BTW.

That's amazing that all you use is two ingredients. It looks like it would be WW's sort of friendly too. Thanks for sharing.
