“This moist, airy cake was my dad’s favorite. My mom revamped the original recipe to include lemons. I’m not much of a baker, so I don’t make it very often. But it is well worth the effort.”
Trisha Kammers, Clarkston, Washington

Ingredients

  • 7 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • Lemon Frosting

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • Dash salt

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. Place oven rack in the lowest position. Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, water, oil, lemon peel and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and beat until well blended. Add cream of tartar to egg whites; with clean beaters, beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold a fourth of the whites into batter, then fold in remaining whites.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake 50-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. In a small bowl, combine frosting ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread over top of cake, allowing frosting to drape down the sides. Yield: 12-16 servings.
