I tried this because I had a 20 oz. can of pineapple in the cupboard that I wanted to use up. I read all the reviews and so was a little bit concerned about how it would turn out, but decided to go ahead and give it a try. I opened up my generic box of angel food cake mix, only to find that it was the 2-bag mix. I went ahead and whipped up Bag A as directed on the box, and then folded in the entire can of pineapple, juice and all, Bag B from the box and about 1/2 a cup of sweetened, flaked coconut. It filled up my Kitchen-aid mixing bowl completely. I greased my 9 x 13 pan with butter and poured in the batter, it filled the pan completely. I baked it at 350 for what I think was about 40 minutes, but I can't be sure because I forgot what I set the timer to initially... Oops!
It raised up about an inch and a half above the pan while baking, and I kept it in there till was a nice darkish golden brown. I set it on a rack, right side up, to cool and it fell just to the level of the pan, not bad at all. I couldn't wait until it cooled completely and had to sneak a piece from the corner and I think it tastes great! It's not too sweet, but if you're having angel food cake you're not really getting super sweet anyway, in my opinion. You could always add some sweetened berries to top it off, but we're going to eat it just the way it is! Yummy!
