A successful Pinterest Project

I must admit I have had my fair share of Pinterest Fails and Fiasco's. Some so hideous I wouldn't even admit I tried them. But every once in awhile, something I try that I saw on Pinterest actually turns out. Such was the case with the Pineapple Angel Food Cake. 

There is nothing harder than trying to diet and ignore a sweet tooth craving.  My hairdresser shared this simple recipe with me and it is the best recipe- even if you are not dieting! [She got it from Weight Watchers.]It is great alone or try adding a few fresh sliced strawberries on top....  delicious!

Once I decided to brave this experiment, I went to the store and bought one Duncan Hines Angel Food cake mix. I don't guess brand matters but I always use Duncan Hines.


Then I bought a 20 ounce size can of crushed pineapples, again the brand is of no importance. Any will work. I just bought what I knew hubby liked. 


I heated my oven to 350 degrees as per the instructions on Pinterest. 


I sprayed a 9 x 13 cake pan with Pam.


I totally ignored the instructions on the cake mix as I was told to do. I dumped the mix and the can of pineapples into a bowl. That was it. No other ingredients are needed. 


I gathered a trusty wooden spoon.


I began to stir.And something magical began to happen. It bubbled and fizzed and got really light and fluffy. Once it was mixed up, I poured it in the cake pan and popped it in the oven.


I baked it for 30 minutes just like they said and Wah Lah! A nice golden fluffy pineapple angel food cake was perfectly created right before my eyes.


It turned out perfect. Another Pinterest project to go on my completed project board.


From what I understand, you can do this with any fruit pie filling as well.
