8 medium eggs
2 2/3 cups sugar
1 pound butter
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup coffee cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
Separate eggs. Measure sugar, whip egg whites until frothy, then add 6 T. sugar gradually to egg whites while beating. Beat until stiff but not dry. Place mixture in refrigerator until ready for use.
Cream butter gradually, add rest of sugar, beating well until light colored. Add egg yolks, two at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add flour, cream, vanilla and lemon extract alternately. Whip until mixture is very light. A low speed on electric mixer for about 10 minutes is fine. With mixer still at low speed, mix in egg whites long enough to blend well.
Pour batter into lightly greased pan (10 x 3" tube pan). Bake at 300 degrees F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
