1Preheat oven to 360°F.
2Grease a cake pan with butter and dust with flour.
3In a saucepan, add the pineapple syrup and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir continuously while boiling to a jam. Set aside.
4Beat the egg yolks with 300 grams of sugar to a creamy, white mixture.
5Mix in the orange zest and juice.
6Add the melted butter and stir.
7Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
8Sift the flour and baking powder together.
9Alternately, with a spoon or a whisk, add 1/2 of the eggs yolks to the egg whites and half of the flour with the baking powder. Repeat, stirring constantly.
10Arrange the pineapple slices in the bottom of the tray. Arrange the pine nuts, raisins, walnuts, and candied fruit in the spaces between the pineapple slices.
11Carefully pour the batter on top and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until fully cooked. Do not bake too long, in order to avoid the cake becoming too dry.
