So I wanted something quick and easy, and came across this brilliant recipe. Angel food cake, mixed with a single can of crushed pineapple. Two ingredients total, brilliant!
I’d never actually made angel food cake before, home or boxed. I’m not sure if it’s the nature of angel food cake, or the addition of the pineapple, but this stuff was crazy foamy!
For whatever it’s worth, I suspect I should have used a smaller can of pineapple. Anyhow, I’m feeling a bit questionable regarding this super foamy pile, but I dump it on into the cupcake pans all the same.
There was some extra, so I dumped it into a bundt pan.
So I never considered that, hey, maybe I should grease the pans? For some reason I was thinking the foaminess would somehow make them not-sticky? Big mistake!
So it was mostly the top edges that stuck to the pans, but it was still a serious mess to get out. I had to chip around each cupcake with a knife to get those suckers out. Same with the bundt pan as well. There wasn’t a whole lot to the bundt pan, so that came out pretty thin.
So, despite the mess, these were actually pretty good. Light and fluffy and super pineappleicious. Next time, I might try to use a smaller can of pineapple though, as well as hefty amounts of grease on the pan!
