Prep: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups moist-style yellow cake mix (about 1/2 box), or HG Alternative

One 8-oz. can crushed pineapple in juice (not drained)

Optional topping: light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip or So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip! Light)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick spray.
 
In a large bowl, stir cake mix with undrained pineapple until uniform. (Batter will be thick, but DON'T add anything else!)
 
Spread batter into the cake pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 18 - 20 minutes.
 
Let cool completely, about 30 minutes in the pan and 30 minutes out of the pan on a cooling rack.
