Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, all but  2 tablespoons of the sugar, baking soda, and salt and beat 1 minute to mix.
  • Make a well in the center.
  • Add the oil, egg yolks, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla and beat 2 minute or until smooth.
  • In another large mixing bowl beat the egg whites until frothy, add the cream of tartar, and beat until soft peaks form when the beater is raised. Beat in the 2 tablespoons sugar and beat until stiff peaks
  • form when the beater is raised slowly.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the batter with a large balloon wire whisk, slotted skimmer, or angel food cake folder until just blended.
  • Pour into the ungreased 10-inch tube pan.( the batter will come to 1 inch from the top) and bake for 55 minutes or untill a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean and the cake springs back when lightly pressed in the center. 
  • Invert the pan, placing the tube opening over the neck of a bottle to suspend it well above the counter, and cool the cake completely in the pan.Loosen the sides with a long metal spatula and remove  from pan.A light sprinkling of powered sugar over the top of cake is nice.

    looks yumo can you tell me when you say invert pan do you mean turn upside down? won't the cake fall out??? Also can this be made in a pan with no hole in the centre - just a normal cake tin? Thanks kelly
