1 ½ cups whole-wheat bread crumbs
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp grated lemon peel
6 large egg whites
1 cup Newman's Own® Old Fashioned Roadside Virgin Lemonade

In food processor, grind almonds with 1 cup sugar. In medium bowl, mix ground almond mixture with bread crumbs, baking powder, cinnamon, and lemon peel. Set aside.
In large mixing bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites with remaining ½ cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold crumb mixture into beaten egg whites. Pour mixture into spring-form pan and bake on lower oven rack for 1 hour.
