The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Pineapple Angel Food Cake (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

Crushed pineapple – you’ll need a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple for this recipe. Do not drain off the liquid in the can as it is needed to give the cake the right amount of moisture.
Angel food cake mix – be sure to check the directions on the box to find the right cake mix. Use an angel food mix that only requires water to be added and not eggs or other ingredients. The Duncan Hines Signature angel food cake mix worked perfectly, but other brands should be fine as well.
Garnish if desiredhomemade whipped cream is a wonderful easy frosting for this cake.

How to Make Pineapple Angel Food Cake

Begin by preheating the oven to 350F degrees. Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish by spraying with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry angel food cake mix and the crushed pineapple with the juice from the can. Mix until well combined.

Toppings for Angel Food Cake with Pineapple

Whipped cream – you can use a ready-made whipped topping, or try making your own homemade whipped cream with our easy recipe.

Frosting – any vanilla or cream cheese frosting you like will work well with this cake.

Glaze – make a simple glaze made with powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla extract, and just enough milk or cream to create a glaze you can drizzle onto the cake.

Powdered sugar – a dusting of powdered sugar is pretty, sweet, and finishes the angel food cake nicely.

Fruit – slices of pineapple (we used canned pineapple chunks), fresh berries, mandarin oranges, or other bite-sized pieces of fruit will garnish the cake beautifully and add more delicious fresh flavor.

Coconut – sprinkle on some sweetened or toasted coconut.
