Pineapple Heaven- Post Superbowl

A friend asked if I would post something “light” since things were quite spicy on Sunday. So here’s something I’d suggest: A slice ( or square) of Pineapple Heaven Cake

Ingredients:

1 Large Can (16 oz) of crushed pineapple

1 Box of Angel Food Cake mix (any brand)

Topping (if desired):

1 container of fat-free cool whip

fresh fruit or 2 tsp. of your favorite berry jelly

Method:

  1. Open cake mix and empty into bowl.
  2. Add entire can of crushed pineapple and mix.
  3. Pour into cake pan and follow package directions for oven timing.
  4. DO NOT ADD ANYTHING ELSE TO THIS MIXTURE!
  5. Top with fat-free cool whip and fresh fruit or 2 tsp. of your favorite berry jelly

 

TEACHABLE MOMENT:  Fat free and cholesterol free! Why? Because cholesterol comes from animal products; however, there are calories. That doesn’t give you a license to eat the whole thing, but you sure will be tempted and you sure will feel like you are in, “Heaven.” ( This could also be an answer for someone who is not a chocolate lover.)
