Ingredients

1 pkg
angel food cake mix
1 can(s)
20 oz. crushed pineapple with juice
3 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
brown sugar
1 can(s)
20 oz. can of crushed pineapple with the juice
1 pinch
salt
1/4 c
water
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
1 Tbsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the angel food cake mix with the crushed pineapple in a mixing bowl with a large spoon.  Mix just fold in well blended.  DO NOT use an electric mixer.  That will beat too much air into this. 
2
Pour the batter into a 9"x13" baking pan that has been sprayed well with nonstick spray.   Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.   Remove from oven and cool.  Before cutting in squares, run a sharp knife around the edges of the pan. 
3
To make the pineapple sauce, melt the butter in a deep sauce pan on medium heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until it has dissolved and slightly caramelized.  Add the pineapple and salt.  Mix the cornstarch with the 1/4 cup cold water until smooth.  Stir into the pineapple sauce and bring up to a boil for a couple of minutes.  Don't let it boil over and stir frequently.  Remove from heat and stir the vanilla in.  Serve while warm over cake slices.   This also makes  a great topping for vanilla ice cream. But the cake is delicious without topping also!
