Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
Place egg white in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until they hold stiff peaks. Scrape into a bowl.
Add egg yolks and sugar into that bowl and beat until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in lemon, vanilla and 1/2 the milk. Add flour and beat, pour in the rest of the milk and beat until smooth. Fold in the egg whites.
Pour over the pineapple and bake for 40 – 45 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.
