Here's another easy recipe:

Combine a package of angel Food cake mix (dry) and 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple. Put in prepared Rectangle Baker and bake at 375 for 25 minutes. No frosting needed (but you can sprinkle with powdered sugar if you like). One serving is 2 Weight Watchers points.

Thanks for sharing Beth. My DH and I love pineapple. I also love the quick and easy recipes.:)

You can also do this as a Skillet Cake, and use some fresh strawberries and Cool Whip to make it pretty! (Put a round sheet of parchment in the bottom of the skillet...)

Drain it or use the juice also? TIA.....;)

Yum! That sounds so good and light and refreshing for the summer months (well except about the using the oven bit ;))

Well, if you made it as soon as you got to the house it would be just finishing when the guests arrive. There's not much to demo with this recipe - just a "here's something quick and easy" so waiting to put it together isn't really necessary.

Sounded so good - I made it for dessert for tonight!

Actually - for the demo - I would probably use the fruit part of the Angel Almond Skillet Cake recipe for a topping......then you could slice strawberries and squeeze a lemon, and grate some rind, and use the family skillet and SS bowl and a whisk and a batter bowl (for the fruit) and the SA round platter and the bread knife for slicing, and the EAD for Whipped Cream.......Oh - and a can opener to open the pineapple, and a mix n scraper to scrape the batter into the skillet!:D I can turn just about anything into a demo!

My aunt just made it for a dinner we had last week and it was sooo good! I love Angelfood cake by itself but with the pineapple it was soo much better and she added whipped cream and strawberries with it, yummmms!

I made this for my Biggest Loser club, and it was a big hit. The question that came up was how big is a serving size? I cut it into 20 pieces, is that about right? Even the kids loved it, btw!

I know this is going to sound redundant but I just mix the dry cake mix with the can of pineapples with juice and nothing else? That is just so simple that it sounded like I had to be misunderstanding! ha!

That's it - it couldn't be easier! And I think it's 20 pieces for 2 points (but I'm not SURE - maybe it was 24??:confused: ). Sorry I'm not more help with that part!

Yes, that's it! It is really moist and good, I promise! When I was done mixing, getting ready to wash the bowl, I went to lick the spoon. BIG mistake - it was just nasty! I was very nervous about how it would turn out after that, lol. But lo and behold it was really good! :D

Ok, leave it to me to add some extra calories to a "good" thing.

Do you think you could make the cake in the new torte pan. Then put vanilla pudding mixed with cool whip topped with bananas & strawberries, top with other torte cake more vanilla pudding top with cool whip. Garnish with marachino cherries, chopped peanuts and drizzle of chocolate.

A banana split torte? Does this sound good to anyone else?

Will the angel food cake cook properly in a torte pan? I could be wrong, I think it is over 15 years since I last made an angel food cake.

I don't know but I think I may just try this. I'll let you all know how it turns out. I may add extra crushed pinapple to the bottom layer too!:p

Has anyone tried this with any other fruit? Just wondering for variety what all you have tried and how it turned out.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.....

We could make this version for a show and say if you are on a diet you could...

No better yet. Make the simple version at a show to show how easy and diet friendly and good it is and then tell them about this version...
