Mini Pineapple Coconut Angel Food Cakes

I Came across this Mini Angel Food pan in a thrift shop the other day and had to have it!
This pan is made of a heavy cast aluminum and is perfect for individual size angel food cakes, sponge cakes, muffins and desserts.  
Angel Food cake is a light, low calorie, low fat cake that can be frosted and decorated in so many different ways.
Today I'm making a simple recipe that I got from my mother in law.  You won't believe how easy it is.  All you need is a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapples and a box of  Angel Food Cake mix.

For the Cake...
1 box ( 16 Oz. Size) Angel Food Cake Mix
1 can ( 20 Oz. size) Crushed Pineapples, Undrained
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
For the Glaze.....
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
4 Tablespoons Pineapple Juice


Preparation Instructions

For the cake:
In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix and can of pineapple. Beat on medium speed until the cake mix is completely moistened, about 1 minute. Do not grease or flour the pan.
Pour batter into a mini angel food pan, filling about 2/3 full.

Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes. Run knife around edges to release.

For the glaze:
In a large mixing bowl, add powdered sugar and pineapple juice. Stir until smooth.
To assemble the cake:
Top each cake with approximately 2 tablespoons of glaze. Let it run down the edges of the cake. Sprinkle a handful of coconut on top.
