  • Mix in the egg whites and lemon peel. Then in a separate bowl add 1 cup of the flour and baking soda and mix well.
  • Add this to the cream cheese mixture alternately with sour cream, making sure to mix well after each addition.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into the cake pan. Then toss 2 cups of the berries with left over 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons of flour on top of the batter.
  • Now bake it for 40-45 minutes, or until a wooden skewer comes out clean.
  • Garnish with the remaining cup of berries and dust with icing sugar before serving. You can serve it cold or slightly warm. its a very nice light spring dessert.
