Heat the oven to 168ºC (325ºF).
Grease the bottom of three round shapes 20cm (8-inches) in diameter with spray oil, line with parchment paper and grease well with oil spray. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon flour.

In a medium bowl mix the oil, lemon juice, water, lemon zest, lemon essence and egg yolks. Add to flour mixture with the aid of an electric mixer until smooth.
In a large bowl beat the egg whites until foamy and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. Add 1/4 of the light to the flour mixture and mix. Add the remaining egg whites.
Divide the dough into equal portions among the three forms, smoothing the light mass to be uniform. Cut the dough with a (confectioner knife spatula etc.) to break any air bubbles.

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the sugar and water. Shake the pan on the burner to dissolve sugar completely. Do not touch. Increase heat and boil (235-240 degrees). Use an accurate thermometer. Wash down the inner wall of the pan with a wet brush. This will help prevent sugar crystals forming around the sides, falling in and causing a chain reaction.
