5 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp granulated sugar

Filling (see recipe below)

Prepare the cake mix according to the package directions and pour the batter into two 8-inch round pans that have been greased and lightly floured.

2 egg yolks
1 cup milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon extract
