  1. Is the egg for binding, moisture, or for rising? I’d like to make this but we have an egg allergy. I’m trying to figure out which egg sub to use. Thanks!! It looks delicious!!!

    The directions are a little confusing. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, mix wet ingredients in a medium bowl, mix pineapple in dry ingredients, then do you add the wet to the dry? And help would be greatly appreciated :) Thank you! :)
