1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1-Sift the flour and half the sugar into a large bowl and set aside.

2- Beat the egg whites with cream of tartar and 1/6 teaspoon salt. Use electric beaters for it and beat it until soft peaks form, gradually add the remaining sugar and beat until thick and glossy. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice

3-Sift half the flour and sugar mixture over the meringue and gently fold in with a metal spoon. Make the same with the rest of the flour and sugar. Spoon into the cake tin and bake about 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when poked into the centre of the cake.
