  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.  Spray two (9-inch) round baking pans with cooking spray and line with parchment or wax paper.
  2. Press crushed pineapple through a sieve to drain well, reserving the juice.  Juice should measure about 1-1/3 cups.  Set aside.  Add pineapple to food processor and process until pureed.  Set aside.
  3. Combine cake mix, 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup sugar, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Add egg whites, oil, 1 cup yogurt, 1 teaspoon vanilla, reserved juice, and half of the reserved pineapple puree.  Mix with a hand mixer for 2 minutes.
