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!

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.

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).

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.

Ok I just made the cake and I must have done something wrong because it was Very Tough and not Flavorful at all. The Angel Food cake mix had 2 packages. One was egg white and one was the flour mix. I put both in the bowl and mixed it with the can crushed pineapple. I only mixed it by hand for less than a min. and baked it as this recipe called for. Any ideas what happened or is this cake suppose to be as I described.

I absolutely love this recipe. I just leave mine in the pan and serve from it. Also just this past weekend, in addition to the crushed pineapple, of course undrained, I drained a can of pineapple tidbits and a small jar of maraschino cherries which I halved and added to the mix. FANTASTIC!!! Very good if you want to serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or once cooled serve with a dollop of French vanilla cool whip.

This is a fantastic cake and so easy to make in a 9 x 13 pan but tonight I am really going to try making it in my Longenberger Ceramic Bundt pan so we shall see, I never tried anything on it before but I will sprinkle it with shredded coconut since I don't want it to be too sweet with icing..

I didn't believe my sister when she gave me this recipe When I put it together it seemed too easy.
I cater small parties and have been looking fr a signature cake I think this is it!

I made this last minute and couldn't locate my angel food cake pan so made it in 13x9. Whats more, I had to crush pineapple slices in food processor. Mixed it up, put in pan and when it came out of oven, put on coconut. Beautiful! Add whipped cream, done. I like presentation as well as anyone but was delighted with this outcome!

This is a keeper. Should be rated o for super easy. I used a bundt pan (very lightly sprayed)and it turned out perfect when I flipped it. Made a cream cheese icing glaze (using canned icing and a little milk and powered sugar. We are on a low fat and low sugar diet and this was perfect. My husband asked when I was making the next one.
