A week ago when we had our Adoption Celebration, I made a favorite cake of ours – Triple Chocolate Cake. It’s so decadent and fitting for a special occasion.
But it takes lots of careful preparation to turn out perfectly! That’s great for a special celebration, but sometimes you just want a good cake for dessert that is fast, delicious and not nearly as fattening! Enter the Two-Ingredient Pineapple Angel Food Cake! This recipe is from Betty Crocker and it’s a true winner on every account!
I made this this weekend for company that was here for Sunday dinner. It was the perfect ending to our meal. It’s not too heavy, but sweet enough to satisfy! After reading the reviews that said it didn’t turn out well in the tube pan (a traditional pan for Angel food) I decided to play it safe and bake it in a 9×13 pan. Mine baked perfectly in 30 minutes. The recipe couldn’t be easier!
Two-Ingredient Pineapple-Angel Food Cake
1 box Betty Crocker™ white angel food cake mix
1can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- In large bowl, beat dry angel food cake mix and crushed pineapple on low speed 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 1 minute. (I mixed mine by hand. It will become a bit “foamy”) Pour into ungreased 10-inch tube pan. I used a 9×13 pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
- Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool completely upside down as directed on cake mix box, about 2 hours. Run knife around edges; turn cooled cake out onto serving plate. Use serrated knife to cut into slices. If you use the 9×13 pan, bake for 30 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
How easy is that? I think keeping these two ingredients on hand for a super-fast dessert is a great idea! You’ll always be prepared with a satisfying cake that takes little time, isn’t super fattening, but is delicious!
In case you did’t see the Two Ingredient Bagels I’ve shared, be sure to check them out. They’re equally delicious!
Are you adventurous enough to try the Triple Chocolate Cake or are you a Two-Ingredient cake baker?
