Two ingredient pineapple angel food cake

I don’t share recipes around here often but when I do you know it’s going to be either really easy or really good or really easy and good. This two ingredient dessert is both!

I don’t have a source for this, (a friend reposted it on Facebook) so I don’t even know what to call it. Pineapple angel food cake? Pineangel food cake? Pineapple fluffy goodness?

I’d dare say that even if you don’t love pineapple, you’ll probably like this one. It’s light and sweet and easy to dress up with simple additions. 
It’s also stupid easy to make. You just take a box of angel food cake and a 20 ounce can of pineapple:

I’m sure you could use fresh pineapple (just keep the juices!) but wow…this is supposed to be easy remember? 😉

You just dump the pineapple in with the cake mix:

And that’s the only ingredients! When I first saw this I thought, wow, that’s crazy easy! And then I remembered you only need water with the angel food cake mix anyway, but I digress…it’s still easy. 
**Do not add water to the mix per the directions. 

The pineapple juice will react with the mix and make it super frothy and fluffy – it was fun to watch:

The more you mix it the bigger it will get!

Then you just pour it into a pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, (follow the directions on the box for the pan you’re using!) That’s it! (I ended up using a 9 by 13 glass pan the first time but since I’ve used an angel food cake pan like this.)  

I starting eating it right out of the pan and it was SO GOOD warm. Wow. YUMMO.

I soon realized I could make a little parfait:

OK, if you add whipped cream or fruit, it’s more than two ingredients. But I promise it’s delicious on it’s own. (Find similar mini trifle bowls here!)

I layered the pineapple goodness and whipped topping and it was SO. good. The cake was just fine at room temp but like I said, I loved it heated up a little.

So there you go – a super easy, really yummy dessert. It’s perfect for this time of year with the pineapple and great for when you have people coming by and need something fast:

Or when you’re home alone in the middle of the day. Whatever. 😉
