Pineapple Angelfood treat

Recommended Posts

Yes, an angelfood cake made from scratch is awesome, but doesn't fir into this section. So, the 'easy' way to make a great snack, dessert, whatever you want to call it is offered up here.

1 angelfood cake box mix

1 20oz (560+ grams) crushed pineapple

Find a 'huge' bowl to mix the above ingredients. Suggestion is for no power tools, just a fork. The 'huge' bowl is suggested because the angelfood cake ingredients are so 'light' it's a bit of a bother to keep them from floating away while stirring to get the pineapple mixed in well. When fully mixed up, the hard part shows up ... how to you want to cook it up?

Typically, follow the instructions on the back/side of the angelfood mix box. In general, in a 'normal' angelfood type cake pan, times are like 30 to 50 minutes at 375 degrees F (190 C)

However, a normal cake pan, something like 20 to 30 minutes at 350 F

muffin pan (cups filled 1/2 to 2/3 full) 15 to 20 minutes at 350 F

Then there's also the difference between glass, shiney, and black metal pans/containers .. so the suggested rule is to start taking a good look at about 10 minutes before the end of the suggested time and make a decision as to when the cooking is done.

In a tube pan, muffin tin, the cake will rise while cooking, usually showing cracks on the surface .. you'd be looking that the cracks are 'dry' all the way in. In a 'flat' cake pan, there isn't as much cracking, assumedly due to the increased and open surface area, so there's the old fallback on inserting and removing a toothpick to see if it comes back out with no vake dough attached.
