Preheat oven to 325°. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together twice and place in another large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks, water, oil, lemon zest and vanilla until smooth.

Fold a fourth of the whites into batter, then fold in remaining whites. Gently spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on lowest oven rack 50-55 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert pan; cool completely in pan, about 1 hour.
