Cake
 
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lightly packed lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Preheat oven 350 degrees
 
Butter and flour 13x9x2 cake pan. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together into a mixing bowl and set aside. In a large bowl combine vegetable oil, water, lemon zest, vanilla extract, egg yolks, and 1 1/4 cups of the sugar. Whip on medium speed, until mixture is airy and light in color, about 5 to 7 minutes. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the dry ingredients and whip until smooth, about 1 minute more.
In a new bowl, whip egg whites to medium peaks. Add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and continue whipping until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute more. Use a rubber spatula and fold 1/4 of the egg whites into the cake batter until evenly incorporated. Gently fold in remaining egg whites until combined.

Remove from pan onto wire rack to cool completely. Spread whipped cream over cake as you would frosting and cover with fruit topping.
