I must be in a pineapple mood. I was on Pinterest, and this cake caught my eye.

It is so easy, a child could make it (with a little help from mom, using the oven).

I plan on making this cake today.

I love this cake and have been making it for years. Someone here said that theirs did not work with the Save-a-lot brand mix. I would say it most definitely was that cake mix. I tried that mix once just as a cake and it it not the same as a normal angel food cake. Today I am making it with Betty Crocker Angel food cake and a can of Libbys crushed pineapple. Oddly the Libbys had no juice to speak of. Great for a recipe where you drain the juice Not so for this one. I solved it by adding a bit of water to my can and swirling it around before adding it to the mix. It foamed up like normal so I am thinking all will be okay.

Was reading through this again and wanted to add when I did this with a regular white cake mix and again with a yellow, besides being denser the mixture did not froth up either. That must be a chemical reaction to the acid in the pineapples and something specific in the angel food mix. Humm, curious as to what it is. Oh well think I will make this again tomorrow. Ill health has stopped me from doing much baking this last year but this is so easy I should have no problem my husband will be so happy. Also, Denise E. the applesauce version sounds great. Will be trying that out for the grandchildren. How much applesauce did you use?
