I love anything citrus-y and these fit the bill. I don't remember where I got the recipe.

The batter is very thick, but the texture is great after baked. I also used lemon juice instead of the zest, mostly because it's what I had available, and it worked great. Not too lemony, but still satisfied my lemon craving. I'll make these again.
