This dessert was intended to be the classic weight watchers, two ingredient pineapple angel food cake. I pinned this “recipe” several times on my low calorie pinterest boards.

I really like the weight watchers recipes that people in the community publish. They are generally low in calories, yet feel indulgent at the same time!

The pineapple cake recipe seemed simple enough. Mix one box angel food cake with 1 can crushed pineapple. But, apparently, the mix I bought was not the same as the ones in everyone’s recipe.

When I opened my angel food cake boxed mix, there were two envelopes. The first step was to whip the egg white powder with water until stiff peaks formed.

Since this was a different step than the other mixes, I just decided to make the entire angel food cake, and then top it with the crushed pineapple.

SO GLAD I DID!! This cake was divine!

I wanted to keep this dessert under 100 calories, because that fits perfectly into a 1200 calorie diet! Three square meals and one dessert is the best meal plan, in my opinion.

I topped the cake with cherries and whipped topping, which is totally optional. Without the whipped topping, my entire mini loaf angel food cake was less than 100 calories. It made 18 loaves altogether!

(This was the mini-loaf pan I used. Only $12.99 and I use it so much!)
