  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease & flour two 9" round cake pans. Separate 4 Large eggs. Set aside egg yolks. Beat egg whites till stiff peaks form, set aside.
  2. Lemon Cake: Cream together sugar & butter in a medium bowl. Beat in lowfat milk & lemon extract. Stir the flour & baking pwdr together in separate bowl. Add in the flour mix to the creamed mix a third at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold egg whites into batter till completely blended.
  3. Spice Cake: Combine egg yolks, brown sugar, mlasses & butter together in a medium bowl. Beat till well blended. Pour 1 TBSP of the sour lowfat milk into a small bowl & stir in the baking soda till dissolved. Set aside. Add in the remainder of the sour lowfat milk to the molasses mix and beat well. Stir the flour & spices together in a spearate bowl. Add in the flour mix in the molasses mix a third at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the reserved sour lowfat milk baking soda mix & beat till well blended.
  4. TO PREPARE CAKE Drop small spoonfuls of lemon & spice batter alternately into prepared cake pans, dividing both batters proportionately between the two pans. Try to put mostly lemon batter around the edges, the spice batter puffs up more & may run over the pan edge while baking. Run a knife through the batter in each pan several times to increase the marbling effect. Bake in preheated oven for 35-45 min or possibly till toothpick inserted in the center of each layer comes out clean. Cold 15 min, remove from pans. Cold completely. Frost with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
  5. Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting: Blend together cream cheese, lemon juice & lemon peel. Add in the powdered sugar gradually, blending well. If frosting is too stiff to spread, blend in cool water 1/2 tsp at a time till desired consistency is reached.
