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.
