DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F In a large bowl combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until frothy. Reduce speed to medium; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar. Increase speed to medium-high ; beat egg whites until soft peaks form (tips curl). Add poppy seeds, lemon peel, lemon juice, vanilla and food coloring. Beat 2 minutes more.
  • In a separate bowl sift together cake flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold one-fourth of the flour mixture into the egg whites. Repeat, three times, folding in remaining flour mixture one-fourth at a time.
  • Pour cake batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until cake top is lightly golden and springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert cake in pan; cool completely. Loosen sides of cake from pan; remove cake from pan. Just before serving, pour Lemon Glaze over cake. If desired, serve with dollops of thawed whipped dessert topping and additional finely shredded lemon peel.
  • For Lemon Glaze: In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, lemon peel and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth.
