  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together the flour, no-calorie sweetener and corn-starch. Stir in the poppy seeds and lemon zest and set aside.
  3. Combine the egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until foamy. Beat in the lemon extract. Beat in the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form.
  4. Spoon the flour mixture over the egg white mixture in four additions, gently folding in after each addition. Pour the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Invert the cake pan and cool the cake completely. Loosen the cake from the sides of the pan with a thin metal spatula. Invert the cake onto a serving platter. The cake can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.
