Angel Food Surprise Cake

It doesn't get any easier than this! All you need is this...

to make a delicious low-cal, low-fat, low-sugar dessert that the whole family will enjoy. (Well, except for Spice of course. She was out as soon as she saw that a fruit that was NOT grapes or apples was involved. Oh well, just leaves more for the rest of us.) To top it all off, you only need to dirty one dish - two if you count the spoon - to make this tasty treat.

Here's what you do:
Dump angel food cake mix in an ungreased 8 x 12 sheet cake pan. Add in 16 ounces of crushed pineapple in its own juice. Stir with a spoon and watch it grow. (Sport really likes this part. I'm sure there's a science lesson in there somewhere. I just haven't figured it out yet.) Once well mixed, pop it in the oven and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. We like to top it with Cool Whip - fat free of course.

Two ingredient, super easy recipes like this are such life savers! I imagine my kids would love seeing the cake rise, too. It's great when baking is entertaining, too.

I've made this before--anywhere from 12-20 oz. of crushed pineapple works just fine. It's also great with some toasted coconut on top...I just take that delicious sweetened coconut, spread a thin layer on a cookie sheet, and bake it at 350 for 5ish minutes until it looks brown. SO so so so so yummy!
