From the Kentucky Living archives – 1967.

One, ten-inch Tube Cake

Sift together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.  Make a well in flour mixture and pour in oil. Add egg yolks, water and lemon juice; beat until smooth.

Beat egg whites and 1/4 teaspoon salt until soft peaks form. Gradually, beat in 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff, but not dry peaks form.

Pour flour-egg yolk mixture slowly over egg whites and fold in gently until well blended. Turn into ungreased tube pan. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until done. Invert pan and cool cake.

Remove from pan and slice horizontally into three layers. Fill with Lemon Custard filling.

*If you don’t sift and in the absence of other directions spoon flour directly from container into a one-cup dry measure, level off, then remove two level tablespoonfuls per cup. NOTE: If self-rising flour is used, omit baking powder and salt.
