Creamy Lemon Filling


  1. Cake: Beat egg yolks until light and lemon colored; gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating constantly. Stir in lemon extract and vegetable oil; set aside. Beat egg whites until foamy; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff but not dry. Fold yolk mixture into whites.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture. Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch jellyroll pan and line with wax paper; grease and flour wax paper. Spread batter evenly in pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Sift confectioners' sugar in a 15 x 10-inch rectangle on a linen towel.
