Excellent! Light and tender little lemony bursts of flavor. I only wish I had doubled or even tripled the recipe. Just wonderful - and very accurate, clear instructions too.
These were adorable alright, and they were very tasty, light and fluffy with the just the right amount of lemon-I used the zest of 1 large one. The best way to describe the feeling of eating them is “extremely pleasant“. I topped them with pureed strawberries & honey. Thanks for the final warning, I watched those babies like a hawk, and they came out perfectly!
These were really delicious. I made a few substitions because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand - club soda was replaced with the juice of one lemon, I omitted the lemon zest for lack of a zester (and no patience to cut it by hand), canola oil was replaced with a little more than a tablespoon of plain yogurt, and I only used one egg white. They came out light and fluffy and with a hint of lemon and sweetness, and were really delicious. Thanks!
