How to Make Pineapple Angel Food Cake

There won’t be much waiting around for this dessert to be ready!

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Pour the prepared cake batter into a prepared pan.
  3. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

We most often bake this in a 9×13 pan but it can be baked in an ungreased angel food cake pan or tube pan for 40-45 minutes. A bundt pan is not recommended as it will be hard to remove.

Top with whipped topping or whipped cream. Garnish with pineapple rings, blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, colored sprinkles, toasted coconut, or chocolate curls.

Cool the cake completely before adding toppings. Add a dollop of whipped topping (like Cool Whip) to make it easy or whip up a batch of homemade whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This pineapple angel food cake can be topped with fruit like fresh berries, peaches, or mango. It’s also great sprinkled with shredded coconut.

Cutting Angel Food Cake

Angel food cake is tender and delicate so be sure to use a serrated knife to gently slice. It cuts best when it has been chilled.

How to Store

Once baked, this pineapple angel food cake recipe can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Freeze the whole cooled cake by wrapping it in plastic wrap for up to 4 weeks and thaw before frosting. Or, freeze leftover frosted pieces on a baking sheet until they are frozen solid then wrap them in plastic and return to the freezer.
