Pineapple-Coconut Angel Food Cake


1 package (16 ounces) angel food cake mix
2 cans (8 ounces each) crushed pineapple, undrained
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon pineapple or orange extract
1-1/2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping
1/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted


In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pineapple and coconut extract. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium for 2 minutes. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. For topping, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and pineapple extract until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Frost top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with coconut. Yield: 16 servings.

This is one of Mom's fave cakes to take to potlucks!!
