I made this for the first time today for Easter dinner. As I got to step three, I was confused about adding the sugar as I had added all the sugar during step 2. My sons girlfriend helped me to figure out that I was probably supposed to add a small amount of sugar. Hence "Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form." I decided to persevere. It took a long time whip up to stiff peak stage. It had a texture like a meringue. I used my kitchenaid stand mixer.
Then I combined the yolks, butter & milk which didn't incorporate smoothly probably for lack of sugar. I added pineapple and bread (used Country White as per another reviewer) and then it went together better. I also added a teaspoon of fresh lemon zest to batter. I folded in the egg white/sugar and popped it in a glass baking dish lined with parchment. It filled up the 11x7 inch pan. I was afraid that it would puff up and overflow. It did puff up a little bit but didn't overflow. Then it kinda flattened out when I took it out of the oven. The end result- it was really delicious. Everybody loved it. There was nothing left. Scalloped Pineapple was a great accompaniment to Ham.
