Lemon Creme Cake

Here is a recipe I tried to make from another I found in the internet. I made it for my lovely niece, Kalina, while she was here visiting. She requested a lemon cake!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lemon anything but I didn't have all the ingredients so I had to improvise. It turned out so yummy and moist, here it is:

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs-separated
1/3 cup oil
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sour cream

Separate the egg yolks from whites. Beat the egg whites in a small bowl until peaks are formed. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, yolks, lemon peel, vanilla and oil. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to wet ingredients. Mix well and add sour cream. Fold in egg whites. Grease and flour a 9X13 glass pan or 2-8 or 9 inch round cake pans. Put batter into pan(s). Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Allow to cool. Spread lemon frosting or a cream cheese frosting is also yummy!
