INSTRUCTIONSFor the Cake

  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour baking powder baking soda salt and 1 1/2 cups sugar. In another bowl whisk together the melted butter buttermilk oil vanilla lemon zest rosemary and egg yolks.
  3. For the meringue: In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment beat egg whites at medium speed until foamy. With machine running stream in the remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Beat at high speed just until stiff peaks form. Gently transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  5. Using rubber spatula gently fold in 1/2 of the meringue just until incorporated. Then fold in the rest of the meringue. Be very gentle to not deflate the air in the meringue. You will have a few white streaks in the batter. Divide batter evenly between your prepared cake pans.
