Skinny on Weight Watchers Pineapple Angel Food Cake
Be sure to use the 1-step angel food cake mix, like the one from Betty Crocker, that says, “just add water.”
And you’ll want a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice (not heavy syrup).
I’ve only ever made it in a 9×13-inch pan. I’ve read elsewhere that you can also use a tube pan or cupcake pan, but I’ve never tried it.
One reader tried cupcakes and left a comment that it didn’t work. So, I’d suggest sticking with a 9×13-pan unless you are feeling adventurous and willing to take a risk.
In the AllRecipes video below, they add 1/2 cup shredded coconut and 1/2 teaspoon rum extract to the batter for a tropical twist, a variation I intend to try next time I make this easy, delicious, satisfying cake.
And a little dollop of light whipped cream or topping never hurts.
According to my calculations each serving has 148 calories and 4* Weight Watchers Points Plus. This has increased to 7* SmartPoints!

Delicious desserts don't get much lighter or simpler than this easy 2-ingredient Weight Watchers Pineapple Angel Food Cake.
- 1 box (1-step) angel food cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
- 1 large can (about 20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the dry cake and the entire can of crushed pineapple with its juice. Stir well until all the dry mix is incorporated. (The mixture will get really foamy.)
Pour the batter into a 9x13 pan which has been lightly greased with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake at 350F degrees for time specified on the box for size pan. When the sides pull away from pan and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, the cake is done. This should take somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
