Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan.
Beat egg yolks slightly.
Allow egg whites to come to room temperature.

Make a well in the middle, and add 3/4 cup honey, oil, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon rind, and 1 teaspoon lemon extract.
Beat with a spoon until blended.
In another large bowl, beat together egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Fold into batter, and then pour into prepared pan.
