Serves: 12
Cooking Time: 45 min
What You'll Need:

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 (18.25-ounce) package lemon cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
4 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Stir lemon peel into cake batter then pour batter into prepared baking dish.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of comes comes out clean.

In a medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar until stiff peaks form. Spoon mixture over cake, spreading to completely cover cake. Form lots of peaks and valleys with a spatula to create a tempting-looking meringue.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until meringue is golden. Let cool, then slice and serve.

Option

This can also be made as two 9-inch round cakes. Just pour the batter into two cake pans then spread the top of each with the egg-white mixture.
