Baking is probably my all-time favorite hobby. Typically I like crazy complicated cakes, with layers and frostings and you know, all those things that are just asking to go wrong. But I will admit that I am also totally a sucker for an easy cake. And guys, this is just the easiest ever.
I challenge you to tell me you cannot bake this. I will only concede if you don’t have an oven.
1 Angel Food cake mix
1 20oz can of crushed pineapple
That’s it. Seriously.
5. Bake according to the box directions. The top (or bottom, technically) should be golden brown. This is not a cake you want to undercook. You need to turn the cake upside down as soon as you take it out of the oven and let it cool completely. Or turn it upside down just after you took a picture of it. I swear, I flipped it.
This easy summer cake is delicious on it’s own, but you can add some coconut into the mix, or serve it up with some berries for a nice light summery dessert. I promise that the toughest part is trying not to eat it all in one sitting. Not that I know about that.
