{Angel Fluff Cakes}

So, today… is the day when we are either showered in gifts by our husbands and children, or declared to that “you are not my mother”, by those we married.
I hope you got the former, not the latter!

My lovely 14 year old Bean took me out for lunch (the husband had to work). He laid out $25 in allowance money for it too. What a sweetie. :)
This evening, I had my inlaws (outlaws! ha), my grandmother-in-law, my parents, and my grandmother over for a cookout. I made these lil beauties for dessert.I’ve heard the recipe referred to as Angel Lush Cake. However, my grandmother used to made a dessert called Pineapple Fluff that contained the very ingredients as the topping I used here.
So.. to me, this makes them Pineapple Fluff Cakes.
But you know me, I’m all about compromise, so I declare these… Angel Fluff Cakes!
These are the perfect summer treat. They are light, they are fluffy, they are low in fat and calories- um.. if you are into that kinda thing.
You can eat these on a 93 degree, dripping hot, humid, sticky, gross Ohio (or wherever, I just type what I know people), and not feel like you just consumed a brick after.
Did I mention they are yummy?

So, what you need here, is
A. An Angel Food Cake recipe.
B. An Angel Food Cake Boxed Mix.
I choose B.
Because I didn’t have a dozen egg whites and a mass amount of patience.
I’ve heard both are required for making an Angel Food Cake from scratch.
I would not know from experience. Hey, cut me some slack. I’m no Alton Brown!
Mix according to directions, then spoon into cupcake liners. Isn’t Angel Food batter pretty?

I got 45 cupcakes from my box. Crazy cakes, eh?
Note, I did not have enough fluff to cover all of these cakes. I had enough for about 32 of them.
While that is baking, mix up your fluff.

1 Box Instant Vanilla Pudding
1 20oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 1/2 cups Frozen Topping, thawed (aka Cool Whip)

Stir until well blended.
Place in fridge until the cupcakes are totally cooled.
Then, plop on top of your cupcakes.

Top with strawberries or with other fruit.


and.. that’s it! Easy… quick.. refreshing.

Here’s the printable.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there in cyberland!



  1. How pretty! Love your photos for this recipe; very nice m'dear! I've made Angel Food cake one time, and it went pretty well. Since you've got your kitchen aid mixer, it would be no problem. ;-)

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! The pineapple fluff sounds so yummy. Mmmmm....would love to have some right about now. :D

  2. Oh, these look delicious! I love strawberries in the summer. Thanks for sharing on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.


...because life should be sweet.
