Recipe of the Week: Pineapple Angel Food Cake

This week I’m sharing a yummy recipe for Pineapple Angel Food Cake. My mom made this a couple of weeks ago and gave me some slices to take home (hence, there’s no photo of the whole cake).

This is the perfect dessert for spring and summer. And this was very easy because it was made using an angel food cake mix. But of course, you could incorporate this into a homemade angel food cake recipe as well. Enjoy!

Recipe for Pineaple Angel Food Cake


1 box of angel food cake mix

1 (15 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained

1/2 cup coconut

1/2 teaspoon ginger

Directions: Mix up angel food cake batter as directed. (The kind I used only required that you add 1 1/4 cups of water before mixing.) Then add ginger and coconut and mix. Fold in pineapple chunks. Pour into a tube pan or a 9X13 pan. Bake as directed on box.

Tips & Suggestions:

– Try serving this topped with whipped cream and additional pineapple chunks.

– Reserve the juice from the pineapple chunks and pour it over baked cake like a glaze.

-If you love coconut, I suggest adding more to this recipe.
