Ingard here, ions ago I did Weight Watchers and came across this recipe for a

Fat Free delicious cake that was very low in WW points

(how many WW points you ask, sadly it is lost in the hamster wheel in my head now, LoL)

Ingredients are:

Angle Food cake mix (in my area prices ranged from $2.29 to $1.89 ~ you can use store or name brand)

1 can of crushed pineapple (20oz)

While the direction on the box don’t request a greased or even greased and floured Angel Food Cake Pan

pan preparation is optional (I have done it both ways)

dump crushed pineapple in cake mix and stir until well blended

(be sure to give yourself a bowl with room as it expands with bubbles 🙂

Bake as directed on package for your pan choice. Allow to cool then turn cake out of pan.

This could be made in a 13×9 pan as well and be just an delicious.


Now here is my confession.

I hadn’t made this in several years and in my memory it was puffy like an Angel food cake can be.

You are seeing my 3rd attempt at getting this pretty and still flat fallen cake.

Now don’t get me wrong the other 2 cakes were happily consumed and were delish!

In fact this one fell as well and was also happily consumed (good thing it is Fat Free).

We are all conditioned to greasing or spraying a pan when baking a cake, but angel food cakes don't like oil of any kind.  When your cakes "fell" it might have been because the pan was greased & slippery.  Angle food cakes turn out best when box directions are closely followed--glass mixing bowl, ungreased tube pan, & cool upside down.

Its 2ppv per 1/24 of recipe! So good!


Thanks for sharing this recipe Ingard! Sounds yummy. I don't know what makes cakes fall like that. My Nanny (grandma) used to say to never walk around in the kitchen when you have a pound cake in the oven. I go by her rule (& cross my fingers).


LoL you are correct ~ might that explain my backside? It does come with a bit less guilt though :D


Thanks Nicole.... I remembered it being low in points. Not too bad
