This turned out to be a nice, light and easy to make dessert. I did use lemon oil rather than zest, because I didn't have any organic lemons. Mine was more tart than sweet, which, actually I like, and may be because of the amount of lemon oil I used. Anyway, I recommend tasting the mixture before putting it into the mold. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
