Tasty Tuesday: Birthday Cake

Yesterday was my birthday! I almost had a store bought cake, but luckily, my husband ran out of time before he could be one. Lucky for him, I've been craving this pineapple cake that someone made at a church we used to go to.  It was awesome.  She told me that it was just angel food cake mix and crushed pineapple.  But my need for a recipe drove me to the internet and I found this cake

on Allrecipes.com I went out and bought pineapple, cake mix AND a carton of heavy whipping cream.  Here's what I found important for next time...

Make sure that you mix this in a bowl BIGGER than you think you'll need.  The mix bubbles and expands, kind of crazy actually.

Make sure that you spray your pan really good. Angel food cake generally does not use spray because the cake needs to climb up the sides, but this isn't really angel food cake.

I cooled my cake upside down in the pan, supposedly it prevents it from falling.  Mine didn't fall, so I'm assuming that's good advice.

When you go to whip your cream, either use a mixer with a whip attachment, or just dump it in a bowl, sprinkle on the sugar and whisk away.

I didn't add the whipped cream until I was serving.  I was thinking I wasn't going to have any on mine, but it tastes so much better with it!
