Post Pineapple dessert recipes

I recently heard of a quick cake recipe with not many calories.I think
it is from the RS diet plan.

Quick Pineapple Cake
1 box of angelfood cake mix(follow directions on box)
1 20 oz. can of pineapples(in their own juice)
Fold pineapples into anglefood mix.
Bake at 350 degrees,for about 30 minutes
Top with cool whip
(I used a loaf pan-but I'm sure any kind is ok)

If you are following WW points,then find out the information on the back of
the cake mix,and on the pineapples.Divide the calories into how many slices
you cut the cake into.

Enjoy!
Lauren

Default Quick Pineapple Cake

Let me clarify this recipe:

1 quick mixing Angel Food Cake Mix
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple

Do Not Add Any Water, just add the crushed pineapple, juice and all and mix in the mixer as the box directs.

Do Not Bake in a Tube Pan. When you invert the pan to cool, the weight of the pineapple will cause your cake to fall on the counter. Believe me, I am telling you from the voice of experience. It wasn't a pretty site.

I bake this in a deep 9 x 13 pan and it comes out great. serves 12 at 3 pts each I top with a dollop of f/f Cool Whip.

Default A variation

You can do this same recipe with pie filling - I have used blueberry pie filling (light version if available - helps reduce pts) and it is wonderful.

I fixed it with lite cherry pie filling... yum! 9x13 cake pan is what I used, too, and no water. Just the pie filling and dry cake mix. How easy is that????

Tina:

Can you give me the nutritional values for the dry Sweet Rewards Cake Mix? My local stores have quit carrying this and I have several recipes that call for it. Just wondering how much different a regular box is compared to it.

Thanks,
Kare

Hi,
In my post about the WW Pineapple Cake recipe, it read "servings 12points per serving: 4"
I forgot to put a space between the 12 and points. Someone could have misread it as meaning 12 points. Horrors!!!!! It's only 4 points.

Kare, I'll be happy to look up the nutritional infor for you when I get to the grocery store tomorrow.

Default Angel food pinneapple cake

Ok, so I made that pineapple angel food cake recipe, and I'm not so sure it worked for me... The recipe I followed was from one of the other links... I drained the juice, added water to the remaining juice, and then add the crushed pineapples... It was really airy fluffy, the batter kept growing. So, well, anyway. When I took it out of the oven, I swore it must have fell... Some of it is typical angel food texture.

So, should I've just add the whole can w/juice without the water? This is the firt time I've baked a cake in almost 20 years, and I'm not that old... I'm not giving up on this recipe..

Maybe I should just follow the regular recipe, but place a few rings at the bottom of the pan? I would love to add lemon grinds to it, instead.

Swan Lake -
Someone mentioned in my meeting that to keep the cake from "falling", after you've cooked it for the prescribed time, turn off the oven & leave the cake in there. Then take it out after it has cooled some & that fixed her problem of the cake falling.

Default Pineapple Delight Dessert

I got this at mylast WW meeting. It makes four large servings at 3 points each.

In an 8" square cake pan place 9 whole graham crackers (I used the low fat ones but the recipe doesn't specify)

In a non-reactive bowl, mix
1 - 19 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
1 pkg sugar free Vanilla Pudding

Add 1 cup slightly thawed Light Cool Whip and fold it in.

Pour all over the graham crackers and chill in fridge.

Very easy, large portions and yummy too.

Hi LindaBC,

This does sound good. Can you please tell me what size box of pudding?

Thanks again!

I actually had a similar recipe given to me at my last meeting too!


One box of angel food cake
One 20 oz can of pineapple
Lite Cool Whip

Mix the angel food cake and entire can of pineapple, including the juice/water. Don't use anything BUT the cake mix and the pineapple (no water, etc).

Frost with cool whip.

3 pts per serving. I think there's 6 servings in a bundt cake.

Enjoy!

Default WW Recipes--Key Lome Pie

I don't have the ingredients for this pie, so can't do the point count. Had it at my brother's who is on WW &I think he said 1 slice is 5 pts.

1 reduced fat graham cracker pie crust
1/2 cup Key Lime juice (can use lime juice if Key lime not available)
1 can FF seeetened condensed milk.

Combine juice and milk thouroughly. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate for 3-6 hours. Can also add a dollop of FF Cool Whip.
Easy and very good!
