As Easy As It Gets


This snack cake or breakfast cake has only two ingredients. I don't think it gets any easier than this.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake


1 box angel food cake mix
1 can crushed pineapple, do not drain


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix cake mix and pineapple in a large bowl by hand. Pour into an ungreased 13x9 inch pan.

Bake for 28-30 minutes.

Cool on wire rack. Cut into squares and serve.

Source: I found this recipe as well as many variations on this same idea on Pinterest.


Angel food cake lemon bars: use 1 to 2 cans lemon pie filling in place of the pineapple (1 can for a more cake-like consistency, 2 cans for a denser texture). Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Cinnamon apple cake: use 1 can of apple pie filling in place of the pineapple. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Fruit pie cake: use 1 can of your favorite fruit pie filling (blueberry, cherry, raspberry, peach, etc.) in place of the pineapple. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Notes: Holy cow. It doesn't get any easier than this. The only thing I would watch is the baking time. The many recipes I found had sometimes similar and sometimes dissimilar bake times. You want to bake it until the top is golden brown and a toothpick tested in the center of the cake comes out clean.


  1. Oh, this looks good and easy! Did you serve it warm?

  2. You can serve it either warm or at room temperature. It is great both ways! And yes, it was so, so easy.
