Pineappleless Pineapple Pudding Cake

Submitted by: Patrice on August 5, 2010

This recipe is zucchini masquerading as pineapple. The flavors are like a pina colada. It is good warm and great cold. Ice cream would be very good if the pudding cakes are served warm.
Thanks to Marymac for the mock pineapple idea.

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with salt until stiff.
