Ingredients :
•7 eggs, separated
•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1-1/2 cups sugar
•3 teaspoons baking powder

•3 cups confectioners' sugar
•1/4 cup lemon juice
•4-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

•Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

•In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, water, oil, lemon peel and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and beat until well blended. Add cream of tartar to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Fold into batter.

•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 325° for 50-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
