Guest Foodie COMMENT: Can this recipe be baked in a 13 x 9 cake pan? If so should the pan be greased

ellie REVIEW: I have a question....can this cake be made in a muffin pan so as to have individual servings? I have a pan with 6 sections that look like small bundt cakes.

Franny REVIEW: I baked this cake for the first time for my daughter's 47th birthday. It turned out so pretty and the taste was outstanding. It was light and just sweet enough with the crushed pineapple. This recipe is a keeper.

donna REVIEW: can you uce any kind of cake mix
CDKitchen Note: You can use any brand, but it should be for an angel food cake, not a different kind of cake, if you want to follow this recipe exactly. Angel food cakes are a little different than other cakes so I wouldn't necessarily try to substitute a different type in this recipe.

soupson REVIEW: Make sure you use the cake mix that you only mix with water (don't add the water, of course). I used Betty Crocker brand. This cake turns out heavier than an angel food cake since it has the pineapple but that's why you use angel food cake mix because it's lighter than something like yellow cake mix (which if you make like this turns out delicious but very dense). The flavor is good so I'm not why the last review complained about that. It's delicious. I use brand name pineapple as I think store brand is lacking flavor so maybe that's the problem? I've made this a dozen times including just yesterday. One other note and maybe this is an issue for some people but when it says don't overmix it means it. Just fold the pineapple in gently until it's just blended. It's like when you make muffins, don't overmix or it will get tough and fall flat. Hope this helps! This recipe always turns out for me so I hope others can benefit from my experience!! Happy Baking!

Guest Foodie REVIEW: In a web search there are many offering this recipe and rating it highly. I don't know where their taste buds are. I made it twice and they both ended up in the garbage, quick but not good.

TTejas COMMENT: I think finding the right cake mix is key for this. I didn't really pay attention in the past to what brand I used and it worked but this time it didn't (used store brand).

Tara REVIEW: My husband said there was no way this recipe could work. He was wrong! It is amazing. I don't get how it works, but who cares, it's delicious. We made it with the cherry pie filling and served it with vanilla ice cream.

Robin COMMENT: I had the same problem with my cake being flat and tough. I' convinced it's the cake mix, the one I bought had two packets, the egg whites separate from the flour mix. I just found this on another website. "make sure when you purchase the angel food cake mix that it doesn't say to open the egg white package, get the mix that doesn't say that". I am going to try again with a different brand of cake mix.
