This easy Crushed Pineapple Dump Cake Recipe is sure to become a favorite. While most dumps cakes are made in a baking dish, this pineapple dump cake is made in a bundt cake or angel food cake pan.
With just two ingredients that are easily stored in the pantry, you will always have the ingredients on hand to make this moist and delicious pineapple angel food dump cake.
I know dump cake is a kind of rough name, but it just refers to dumping the ingredients together and baking. While this crushed pineapple dump cake recipe can't get much easier, as it only has two ingredients, it is mixed. I guess it is only a dump cake in name then.
Crushed Pineapple Dump Cake Recipe: Making
Preparing the batter for your Crushed Pineapple Dump Cake could not be any easier. Just mix together a boxed angel food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple. The batter will expand rapidly, and just needs to be dumped into an ungreased non-stick bundt pan (or true angel food cake pan if you have one) and baked.

How to Cool Angel Food Cake
While mixing the easy pineapple dump cake together is super simple, there is one trick to getting outstanding results when making the cake. As soon as the pineapple dump cake comes out of the oven, it should be inverted over a small glass bottle to fully cool. This is how to cool angel food cake, and an angel food cake mix is used in making this crushed pineapple cake recipe.
Don't let this step get you nervous, it is not a big deal at all. The reason it is done is to keep the air in the pineapple angel food dump cake. We don't want our nice spongy cake to deflate do we?
