Weight Watchers Pineapple Angel Food Cake Recipe Notes

Be sure to use the 1-step angel food cake mix, like the one from Betty Crocker, that says, “just add water.”

And you’ll want a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice (not heavy syrup).

I’ve only ever made it in a 9×13-inch pan. I’ve read elsewhere that you can also use a tube pan or cupcake pan, but I’ve never tried it.

WW Friendly Low Fat Pineapple Angel Food Cake

One reader tried cupcakes and left a comment that it didn’t work. So, I’d suggest sticking with a 9×13-pan unless you are feeling adventurous and willing to take a risk.

In the AllRecipes video below, they add 1/2 cup shredded coconut and 1/2 teaspoon rum extract to the batter for a tropical twist, a variation I intend to try next time I make this easy, delicious, satisfying cake.

And a little dollop of light whipped cream or topping never hurts. Enjoy!
