Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • LEMON SAUCE:
  • 3 eggs

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Nutritional Facts

1 slice with about 2 tablespoons sauce equals 318 calories, 9 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 77 mg cholesterol, 158 mg sodium, 55 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 6 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift flour and 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar together twice; set aside.
  2. Add cream of tartar, extracts and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold in flour mixture, a fourth at a time.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched and cracks feel dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. For sauce, whisk eggs and sugar in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir in the lemon juice, butter and lemon peel. Cook until mixture thickens and reaches 160°, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; refrigerate until chilled.
  5. Run a knife around sides and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Fold whipped cream and food coloring if desired into sauce. Serve with cake. Refrigerate any leftover sauce. Yield: 12 servings.

I am a volunteer TOH field editor and have made this many times!!! It is so light and refreshing!!! Sometimes I serve it with some sliced raspberries or strawberries and then top it with the lemon sauce! So delicious-definitely 5 star worthy!!
