If life hands you lemons...

make a lemonade? No! Bake a cake! It´s light, fluffy, and refreshing. This amazing recipe is perfect for hot summer days when creamy cakes are simply too heavy and it is also ideal for using the egg whites yo might have left over from another recipe.

300 gr. of sugar
150 gr. oil (not olive oil)
300 ml. water
400 gr. flour
30 gr. baking powder
6 egg whites 
the peel of lemon
confectioner´s sugar
(for a smaller cake you can halve the amounts)

In a mixer beat the sugar, water, and oil. Then add the flour, baking powder, and lemon peel. 
Separately beat the egg whites until stiff and then add them to the other mixture.
Spoon the batter in a cake mould and bake in the preheated oven at 180°C for 30 minutes. When ready let it cool, then sprinkle with confectioner´s sugar and garnish with candied lemons, which can be easily done at home. Just take a small pan, pour in the same amounts of water and sugar and heat until well incorporated. Then add some lemon slices and let them candy for about 15 minutes. Last but not least decorate your cake and enjoy enjoy enjoy!
