Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Cool: 25 minutes


1 1/4 cups angel food cake mix (a little less than half a box)

2/3 cup canned crushed pineapple in juice, lightly drained

1/4 tsp. almond extract

3/4 cup natural light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip or So Delicious Dairy Free Cocowhip Light)

6 maraschino cherries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a jumbo 6-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a medium-large bowl, combine cake mix, pineapple, and almond extract. Mix until uniform.

Evenly distribute among the muffin cups, and smooth out the tops. (The cups won’t be very full, but the batter will rise as it bakes.)

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cake comes out mostly clean, about 15 minutes.

Let cool completely, about 10 minutes in the pan and 15 minutes on a cooling rack.

Evenly top each cake with 2 tbsp. whipped topping and a cherry.

Jumbo muffin pans are good for making more than just jumbo muffins! They're amazing for mini cakes (like today’s recipe), mega meatloaf muffins, individual egg bakes… basically any time you need portion control in a slightly bigger package than traditional muffin size. This 2-pack is a bargain and includes a 5-year warranty. Bonus: It’s dishwasher safe, and the nonstick design means your food will slide out easily.
