1 tablespoon lemon essence
3 egg yolks (passed through the sieve)
8 egg whites

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 large bowl mix well with the wires stick flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
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. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the dough touching it lightly elastic. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes still on the way. Remove the cakes the way, remove the parchment paper and let cool completely on a rack.

Lemon Curd Filling:

3 egg yolks
Zest of half a lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
6 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons of butter

A bowl of stainless steel or glass to put all the ingredients except the butter and bring to heat in banho-maria.Ir stirring until thickened. Remove from heat and add the butter, stirring until melted. You should be a thick cream!

Italian Meringue:
sugar 1 cup
1/3 cup water
5 egg whites at room temperature

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. Prepare your meringue.
In the mixer bowl, beat the egg whites on low speed until a espeuma. Increase speed to medium and beat until soft peaks form.
With the mixer running, pour the hot sugar syrup in a thin stream. Beat until the egg whites are stiff and shiny. Spread the meringue on a hot pie or cake.
