Serves 8.

• 1 cup cake flour
• 1½ cups superfine granulated sugar
• 1¼ cups egg whites (about 10 large egg whites), at room temperature
• 1¼ teaspoons cream of tartar
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Sift the flour twice with ½ cup of the sugar.

With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form when the mixer is removed from the batter.

Add half of the remaining sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add the remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition.

Stir in the vanilla, and add lemon zest.

Fold the flour and sugar mixture into the egg whites, ¼ cup at a time, until just incorporated.

Put the batter in an un-greased 10" tube pan and bake until the cake is a light golden brown and springy to the touch, about 1 hour.

Invert the pan and let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan.

This cake can be made in advance, cooled completely and stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Add strawberries or fruit or top with the 7-minute frosting that follows.

Serves 8.

• 2 large egg whites
• 1-½ cups granulated sugar
• 3 Tbsp. cold water
• 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
• 2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
• 1 tsp. lemon zest, grated

Combine all ingredients, except vanilla and lemon zest, in the top of a double boiler or bowl. Bring water in the bottom of the double boiler or saucepan (if using a bowl) to a simmer. Place top of the double boiler or the bowl over the simmering water. Immediately begin whipping mixture 3 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed. Increase speed to high and beat another 3 minutes. Remove top of double boiler. Add vanilla and lemon zest. Beat 1 minute on high speed until mixture holds stiff peaks and is satiny. Makes enough to fill and frost a double layer 8- or 9-inch cake or the angel food cake.
