  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F Grease and parchment paper line a 10 inch tube pan, set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs with the salt until light. Gradually beat in the sugar at medium speed and beat for at least 20 minutes, add rind if using.

  4. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean (cake will spring back to a light touch).
