PINEAPPLE FLUFF CAKE

I got this recipe in the 1960s from a lady who got it in Houston, Texas in 1939.

6 eggs, separated
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup sugar, again
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice (unsweetened)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 325 (moderate) degrees. Set out an ungreased 10-inch angel-cake pan.  Beat the egg whites with the salt to form moist, glossy peaks.  Gradually beat in the first 3/4 cup sugar.  Beat egg yolks and the other 3/4 cup sugar until thick; add lemon and pineapple juices; beat until sugar is dissolved.  Add flour sifted with baking powder.  Fold in egg whites.  Bake in the angel-cake pan for 1 hour.  Invert pan to cool.  Frost with whipped cream or seven minute frosting.  Trim with maraschino cherries, nuts, and/or coconut for a festive cake.
