Easy and delicious Pineapple Casserole. Just 5 ingredients are needed to make this wonderful light and fluffy pineapple baked casserole!…
If you haven’t noticed on my blog, I have a love for anything with pineapple. I have made pineapple upside-down cakes many, many times. They are always a big hit and disappear quickly. This time I am making cupcakes, but I added more chopped pineapple to the batter. Love the addition, I think you will too! These cupcakes are so moist and full of flavor. The pineapple and brown sugar caramelizes in the cupcake pan which puts the flavor over the top! Since they are cupcakes size, you can have more than one, I won’t tell!
This is a delicious and quick dessert that you can put together if you need a last minute dessert for a get together pot luck, or hubs needs a dessert for work!
I used an Angel Food Cake mix, but you can always use a store bought, or make one from scratch. Last time I made an Angel Food Cake, I was about 10, as I was beating the egg whites, whipping away, I wasn’t holding the bowl and the whole thing flipped over on to me and the floor, I started over, I think I used 2 dozen eggs, the second time wasn’t any better, the whole thing came out rock hard.
So, try it, you may have a better experience. The cake mix can’t get any easier. Add water!! The only thing I recommend is that you use a large bundt pan. Mine wasn’t large enough obviously, Angel Food Cakes really rises and puffs up, I quickly removed my cake mix batter from the oven as it was rising and poured half into another bundt pan! Whew, success!
Follow directions on cake mix, or make your own Angel Food Cake by scratch, depending on how much time you have.

My kids were going at this as soon as it was cooled off. The combination of the vanilla bean and crushed pineapple makes me feel like I am in the tropics. If I could just get the weather to be 20 degrees warmer, then it would be Paradise!
