Put dry cake mix in bowl (do not add the water as directed on the box). Add entire can of pineapple with juice. Mix carefully until all dry mix in incorporated. Pour into either a tube pan, 9x13 pan, or cupcake pan with liners. Bake at 350 degrees for time on box for size pan (around 30-40 minutes. When sides pull away from pan and toothpick, cake is done.
Can also use low calorie cherry, blueberry, or lemon canned pie filling instead of pineapple.
The icing that tops this cake off is one container of cool whip,1 small can of crushed pineapple drained, and 1 envelope of french vanilla pudding, bake cake as directed let cool frost and put in refrigerater overnight. so so good.
This was so easy and so yummy. Had it for a birthday with reddi whip and light vanilla ice cream and there were no leftovers. Serving size is very generous and satisfying. I used a 9 x 13 glass pan sprayed with butter non stick and only needed 25-30 min and was perfectly cooked.
I made this last night and the kitchen smelled wonderful while this was baking. reminded me of pineapple upside down cake. I did alter the pineapple as Dole now has a sugar free crushed pineapple made with splenda, just as good
I made these into cupcakes - i got 32 out of the recipe and then topped them with a mix of cool whip free & 1/2 pkg of cook & serve coconut pudding, ended up being 75 calories per cupcake! Yummy! First baked good in 2 weeks. I'm a happy girl today!
Making it as cupcakes as a few others had suggested for my sons preschool's class. HIs classmate is allergic to eggs so I was so happy to find this but then I just realized there are eggs in the box ingredients :(
Delish! I made the cake and used a container of fat free coolwhip with an envelope of SF FF cheesecake instant pudding; mixed with coolwhip and covered over the top of the cake... went to a birthday party and did not feel left out as I brought my own piece and gave the recipe and site out to many.
This was awesome!! I made it into cupcakes and it made about 40! I made these for the superbowl and they were a big hit. Everyone loved them. I will definately make these again. It's a good sweet without the calories
This tasted almost like my mother's pineapple upside down cake that she used to make! It was delicious, easy to make, and a perfect dessert. I served it with one serving of FF Cool Whip and it was great!!
This recipe doesn't mention the interesting reaction you get when you mix the pineapple with the mix. Got several compliments on this cake even when it was amongst "made from scratch" competition. Think I'll try lemon next.
Dude, a box of cake mix + fruit isn't a recipe, and there's such a dramatic variation of nutritional breakdown in different pre-made angel food mixes that your nutritional info is pretty useless. Sorry.
Made this into cupcakes for our family dinner. I had to spray my muffin tins as the ones with paper would NOT come out of the paper liner. Served with a 1/2 cup of frozen vanilla yogurt. This dessert was a winner! I didn't use any icing.
I have made this cake many times and it always turns out awesome. I have made it with the cherry and blueberry. I live in a Sen Mobile Home Park and most of the ladies here are diabetic, so they love the cake. I just sprinkle a little powdered sugar on the cake when cooled and it all goes.
I made this recipe exactly as it was written....it was absolutely delicious and everyone at our dinner party loved it! I think the tip for the cake not to fall as someone mentioned is to turn it upside down and let it completely cool before removing from the pan.
This recipe gets 5 stars for taste but 1 star for...it burned up my esophogus! If you have any problem at all with pineapple/citrus (it irritates the lining of my mouth/tongue) do not make this! They were delish and I ate way too many, then I was up all night in pain. Not kidding.
This cake was so easy to put together, that I really doubted that it would taste good. This is FANTASTIC! We rarely have dessert, but this tastes so wonderful that I could have a piece on occasion and not worry about going over my calorie count!
This sounds great! I have my Toastmasters picnic soon. I'll make this with cherry pie topping, though I love pineapple. I'll have fresh blueberries and whipped cream available for topping. It will be red, white and blue for America's birthday!
I did this, saw it on pinterest. Super good. Strong too, so you aren't in much danger of overdoing it. My favorite part is the top, gets kind of a sweet chewy crust. Might try sprinkling coconut over top next time I make it for guests. Psst, fat free.
The picture shows the cupcakes as "filled," and if you mix the pineapple in the cake mix it isn't separated like shown. I make this by taking the angel food mix and stirring in the crushed pineapple. I use a regular cake pan. The cake ends up on the thin side, but OMG it is amazing!! LOVE this!!
This was so incredibly easy and the taste was incredible. I made cupcakes using the paper liners--I should have sprayed the liners because the cake sticks to the paper--so I ate the paper too (just kidding). VERY GOOD
This is the second time making this cake, first time with Lemon Pie Filling, this time using crushed pineapple. Both were very good, but the texture of the pineapple one was better. Who knew something this simple could be so delicious! Will try the other flavor pie fillings soon.
I made this this evening using pineapple canned in natural juice and it was delicious! It tasted like a light version of pineapple upside-down cake and was rich enough that it didn't need any kind of topping. My husband, who doesn't like any kind of "healthy" dessert, absolutely loved it as well. - 4/21/13
I made this by directions: However, after cooling it fell flat in the center. I cooked it until the cake pulled from the sides of the pan. It tested in the center with a cake tester. It fell flat in the center when cool. What did I do wrong? However, it was delicious.
I made this cake just how the directions said but it overflowed from the pan is there something I can do different to make it not overflow or does it just do that on its own It still tasted great it just overflowed from the pan and made a mess If anybody could let me know I would really appreciate
The cake mix I bought was a 2 step mix, but since it was all I had I used it anyway. It turned out amazing! So fast, from opening the mix to eating ... less than an hour, including cool down time!
I have been doing this for years. Got the recipe from a Weight Watchers instructor. I usually do it in a sheet pan so it is easier to cut smaller pieces. I have also used canned peaches. I dice the peaches and adjust the juice. When using a sheet pan the cake will fall some. Drizzle with choc.
This is absolutely delicious! I made this today as my birthday cake, could not be more satisfied with it, I topped it with a packet of coconut cream pudding mix, a tub of cool whip and about 1/4 can of crushed pineapple! Amazing!
This cake is a winner! I highly recommend that you check your oven temperature with a thermometer and then bake the cake for 44 minutes. I used a tube pan and inverted it onto two cans until it was completely cool. Perfect!
