150 grams flour
50 grams maizena (corn flour)
100 grams butter, melted
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon extract
1 tbsp lemon zest
8 eggs

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour 2 8 inch cake pans, knocking out excess flour.

Sift together flour , baking powder, and salt into a bowl.

Beat together eggs and sugar with an electric mixer (fitted with paddle attachment if using a stand mixer) at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. then beat in zest and extract and continue beating 5 minutes more.

Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture mixing until batter is just smooth. Add the melted butter

Divide between cake pans, spreading evenly.

Bake cake layers until they begin to pull away from sides of pans and a wooden pick or skewer comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pans on racks, then invert cake layers onto racks and cool completely.

And next decorated cake with fresh fruits.
