Tea on Tuesday

Let's Have Tea!
We'll set a pretty table...

And wear a pretty hat.

We'll sit around the table with our cup of tea,
lots of fun and fellowship sistership, just for you and me!

A delicious dessert certainly I will bake...

Because you can't serve tea without a piece of cake!

Lemon Sponge Cake
1 cup sugar 
6 eggs (separated)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease and flour a single layer pan.

Beat egg yolks until thick and yellow colored. Gradually beat in the sugar, lemon juice and zest. Fold in half of the stiffly beaten egg whites.
Add sifted flour and salt. Add remaining egg whites.
Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out mostly clean.
