    Warning, this cake is soooo tasty that it is hard to eat one piece! But, I made cupcakes too - so cut the calories into thirds because you are getting 36 servings instead of 12! - 3/29/09

    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! - 4/19/10

    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 - 1/30/08

    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. - 5/6/09

    you might want to add -- only use metal or glass to mix in. Do not use a plastic bowl or spoons as this will not turn out!

    I have been making this for years and it is fantastic!

    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. - 6/20/10

    How can anyone call this a recipe! Recipes DO NOT start with a box of cake mix! They start with eggs, butter, flour and sugar in varying quantities. - 6/30/13

    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. - 6/30/13

    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. - 4/25/13

    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.

    Just an FYI-- a recipe is "a set of instructions for preparing a particular dish, including a list of the ingredients required". There are many recipes that include a boxed mixed or other prepared food. If you use a recipe calling for sausage (for example) it is not necessary to first get a hog. - 5/10/14

    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. - 5/20/12

    I had a couple of issues, First of all, I wasn't sure what size the pineapple can was supposed to be but I had a 20 oz. can and the mix and pineapple just bubbled up a lot and started spilling over the sides of the pan onto my oven, and the cake stuck to the sides even though I sprayed with PAM. - 3/16/18
