  Egg whites 10
  Cream of tartar 7⁄8 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Powdered sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Egg yolks 7
  Lemon extract 1 Teaspoon
  Cake flour 1 Cup (16 tbs), sifted 5 times

1. Start oven, set at Moderate, 350° F. Have ready a 9-inch tube pan, ungreased.
2. Whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar and salt until foamy; beat in half the sugar. Beat the egg yolks and the lemon extract until light and thick; beat in the remaining sugar. Combine the yolk mixture with the egg white mixture and fold together with a spoon until well blended.
3. Sift in the flour and fold into the mixture. To avoid breaking air bubbles do not beat after adding the flour.
4. Pour into the tube pan. Cut through the mixture several times with a knife to break large air bubbles. Bake 50 minutes.
5. When baked, invert the pan on its tube or a wire cake rack and let stand until thoroughly cool. Loosen with spatula or knife. Frost or leave plain. Do not cut the cake, but break apart into pieces with 2 forks.
