  • beat eggs until lemon coloured and thick and frothy
  • slowly add sugar and beat with sugar for 10 minutes
  • fold in flour and salt
  • fold in lemon juice and lemon rind
  • bake at 350 until golden and toothpick comes out clean - 25-35 min depending on your oven
  • serve with whip cream and berries
