How to make it
- Drain pineapple reserve 1/3 cup juice- save remainder for another juice
- My Note: since I had crushed pineapple, I drained well, did not use any juice at all in the recipe

- In another bowl, whisk, eggs, oil, vanilla and pineapple mixture
- Stir into dry ingredients ( I used an electric mixer,)
- Blend in cranberries and zucchini well.

- Cool pans on racks 10 minutes
- Carefully remove cakes from pan to finish cooling.
