TOTALLY YUMMY! I've made it three times in the past month and everyone LOVED it! I also tried adding a cup of white chocolate in the batter and my mom said that it turned out even better!

Add eggs then egg whites, one at a time, beating after each addition to incorporate. Add flour, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt, and mix until combined.
