How to make it
- Empty cake mix into a large mixing bowl; make a well in the center. Beat in water, oil, lemon extract and egg yolks until smooth, about 1 minute or 150 vigorous strokes.
- Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl until stiff peaks form.
- Gradually pour egg yolk mixture over beaten egg whites, folding with rubber spatula just until blended.
- Pour into 2 greased and floured 8-inch layer pans.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly.
- Cool. Split each cake into 2 layers and frost with lemon crunch frosting.
- To prepare lemon crunch frosting:
- Combine sugar, water and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, to 300 degrees on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold or ice water separates into hard, brittle threads.
- Remove from heat and quickly stir in baking-soda mixture until light and foamy.
- Pour mixture onto a buttered 8-by-12-inch cookie sheet and quickly spread to 1/4-inch thickness; cool.
- Break into pieces, then crush into crumbs.
- Add the confectioners' sugar and lemon extract to whipped cream until well blended.
- Spread half the sweetened whipped cream between cake layers and the remainder on top and sides.
- Sprinkle crushed candy generously on top and sides.
- Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
- Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours before serving.
- Note: If desired, substitute lemon sponge or chiffon cake.
