Preheat oven to 325 F. In large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, Clabber Girl Baking Powder and salt. Add oil, egg yolks, water, vanilla and grated lemon rind. Beat for two minutes or until smooth.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff. Gently fold into batter with spatula until just blended. Pour into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan.
