“OK, so this isn't really a loaf. I almost changed it to "dessert," but this is the name I used through my whole childhood when I nagged my mother to make it. To avoid reproachful reviews, please note that this is not spicy, nippy or zippy. If that's what you like, feel free to proceed to the next recipe.”

  1. Cream butter and sugar together.
  2. Beat egg yolks with cream, placing over hot water to cook slightly.
  3. When thick and smooth, add to butter and sugar mixture; cool.
  4. Stir in pineapple and juice and fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
  5. Spray a pan (something like a casserole dish or an 8-in. square pan) with nonstick spray.

  7. Over the crumbs spread 1/3 of the pineapple mixture.
  8. Repeat with alternate layers, ending with the last of the crumbs.
