Indulge (guilt free) in this scrumptious Skinny Pineapple Cake. With only 3 ingredients, it's as easy as it is delicious!


  • 1 box yellow cake mix (for 13x9 cake)
  • 1 can (20 ounce) crushed pineapple (DO NOT DRAIN)
  • 12 ounce light Cool Whip, thawed
  • sprinkles, optional


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with crushed pineapple (and the juice from the can). Mix until well blended, and no dry mix to be found.
  2. Pour batter into a greased 13x9 baking dish.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-28 minutes.
  4. Cool and refrigerate for 3 hours. Top with thawed Cool Whip (or make your own whipped cream). Serve cold and enjoy!


  • Feel free to make homemade Whipped Cream instead of using Cool Whip. For fresh whipped cream that will hold its shape longer in the refrigerator, try using Stabilized Whipped Cream instead.
  • For an even healthier version of this cake, serve it with a dollop of vanilla yogurt instead of the whipped topping. 
  • Make this a skinny pineapple-ginger cake. Chop ⅓ cup crystallized ginger and fold it into the cake batter before baking.
  • Instead of putting sprinkles on the Cool Whip, decorate the cake with maraschino cherry halves.
  • Try using angel food cake mix with this recipe for a lighter, spongier dessert.
