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 haven’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).


  1. I have always had it with the crushed pineapple… I bet it would be good if the fruit was crushed up a bit like the pineapple.

  2. I wonder if you could do it with other fruit? Like canned peaches or apricots, or cherries?

  3. Only need TWO things to make this recipe… well three if you count the spray oil

  4. The cake mix has to be a one step cake mix ( such as add water only) . Duncan Hines is brand that has these. Also, if you grease the pan it will not rise correctly with Angel food cakes, That may be why it is not as fluffy as youremember.

  5. FYI My local grocery store sells the crushed pineapple sweetened with splenda. Its a little hard to find, but they do have it. It would cut out some of the fruit sugars for diabetics. I can’t tell the difference when used in recipes. It’s yummy!

  6. From WW: Follow directions on box of cake mix, substituting can of crushed pineapple (do not drain) for water. Bake as directed on cake mix. Enjoy! 12 servings = 3 pts, 10 servings = 4 pts, 8 servings = 5 pts. Frost with whipped topping if desired (points not included). I think your problem is you’re substituting everything with the pineapple instead of just the water. I think I’ll try this over the weekend!

  7. I made this for my birthday cake back in September. I was/am trying to keep the sweets to a minimum and my mom is a diabetic so this was a “healthier” option. It was super yummy…and so easy to make!
