This pineapple custard pudding cake is baked in individual ramekins with pineapple chunks in the bottom and a soft, fluffy cake topping. It's not too sweet and gets a bit of pleasant tartness from the lemon juice. Beaten egg whites give the pudding cake its signature light, spongy texture.

As a pudding cake bakes, the cake part rises to the top, leaving a wonderful custard sauce on the bottom. You'll want to serve this cake with spoons. This light and fluffy cake will quickly become a family favorite.
