Found this in a church cookbook. Made them this past weekend and enjoyed them greatly.

These cakes had a lovely, delicate texture and wonderful flavor from the citrus. I used lemon zest in place of the lime and added a pinch each of nutmeg and cinnamon. My cakes did not puff up much, but then again, I have never been very good with pancakes :) Next time, I may try whipping the egg whites separately to see if that gives me more fluff!
