This is a very simple pudding that works beautifully. I didn't have any crushed pineapple so I ran some rings through the food processor, just a few pulses, didn't want pineapple mush. I used soy milk to keep it non-dairy. I also used brown sugar, which gave it a nice caramelly flavor which really complemented the pineapple. With some high-quality vanilla ice cream it garnerd me a few compliments. I will certainly make this again and again! Thanks Gidget!

This is as good as it gets for a pineapple lover like me! This is smooth and creamy and with a cake like top. I made the recipe with no alterations. It was wonderful! We put it alongside a french vanilla ice-cream.

I made this for dinner tonight. It was yummy, but it didn't rise as much as I would wish. Please don't take it to heart Gidget-I think it was my fault! I wanted to be organised for dinner, so made it up to step 4 and then left it for about 1 hour to be finished. I think that upset the raising agent in the flour. I also think I will use a smaller dish to bake it in next time so I get more definate layers.
