Yes. This recipe has you add the zest. The zest provides an excellent sharp, tart lemon flavor you can't get from the juice alone. I don't think there is a quick substitute, just make it without the zest.

My husband thought that they were super sweet too. I didnt think they were *too* sweet, but might add a little less sugar next time also. They were still fabulous!!!

4 beaten eggs
2 cups sugar

8 tbsps lemon juice (120 ml)
1+ tsp lemon zest
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp flour (60 ml)


Hi...how much lemon zest do you use? Is it 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon, or the zest of 1 lemon plus 1teaspoon, or 1 plus one half teaspoons....or am I thinking about lemon too much??

You're thinking too hard. LOL, it is one large teaspoon. Really though, I just toss in whatever I want. I like LOTS of zest though.

Miandoria, "1+ tsp lemon zest" would most likely mean "one teaspoon plus a little" as in "1 rounded teaspoon" or "1 heaping teaspoon".
