Pineapple Mango Angel Food Cake with Ginger Whipcream

Ok, here is the important things to know:

*I made this in about 3 minutes
*It is fat free (cake alone)
*It tastes delicious

This is how it works:

Use a boxed Angel Food Cake Mix (make sure its a one bag mix, not egg seperate one)
Add one 20 oz can of crushed pineapple with the juice

Bake as directed. Enjoy!

Now, here are my variations to the basic recipe above:

- I used the drained pineapple plus 8 oz of Mango Nectar
-I also made a simple whipped topping by mixing heavy cream and a few shakes of ginger together. I used 16 oz of heavy cream, a few shakes of ginger and about 3 tablespoons of powder sugar. (obviously, this makes it un-fat free)

Open Faced Veggie Panini's

cooked & ready to devour

uncooked/raw without the cheese

Hey look, sometimes I actually make healthy things. This is so easy, so nutritious and so good. 

Sliced Sourdough Bread
Diced Tomatoes (I used canned with basil in it already)
Diced mushrooms
Diced Zucchini
Diced Olives
Italian Seasonings (I used onion powder, garlic powder, a touch of thyme and oregano)
Shredded Cheese (I used a six cheese light italian blend- parm, asagio, mozz, etc- but whatever you like would work)


Cook on bake for about 10 min on 375 and then broil the last 3 min to crisp the bread

Line your pan with non-stick foil to catch the burnt cheese and easy clean up
