A delicious Christmas Lemon Cream Cake

Preparation time : 1 hr. (approx.) | Serves 8 persons

This is one of those lemon cakes that can be presented on Christmas Day and that is why I have put this lemon cream cake recipe here.This lemon cake requires no baking and is slightly different from other lemon pound cakes because of the fact that its sponge is prepared from different ingredients and when it is decorated with lemon filling and cream it looks more attractive and also tastes delicious. Another main point which should be kept in mind while doing baking is accurate measurement so it is suggested to use kitchen weigh scale for correct measurement of ingredients.

Ingredients:
14 oz plain flour
1 tbspn baking powder
1 tspn salt
4 oz white sugar
4 oz cup vegetable oil
6 egg yolks
6 oz water
1 tbspn lemon zest
6 egg whites
1/2 tspn cream of tartar
6 oz white sugar
8 oz heavy whipping cream
20 oz lemon pie filling
6-8 slices lemon
