Ingredients
  Egg yolks 4
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Grated lemon peel 1 Teaspoon
  Egg whites 4
  Sifted cake flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sweetened whipped cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chocolate glaze 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Beat egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar, and lemon peel until very thick and lemon colored.
Set aside.
Beat egg whites until frothy; add 1/3 cup sugar gradually, continuing to beat until stiff peaks are formed.
Fold egg yolk mixture into beaten whites until blended.
Sprinkle about one fourth of the flour at a time over the egg mixture; fold together gently until just blended after each addition.
Turn batter into 12 greased (bottoms only) 2 1/2x1 1/4 inch muffin-pan wells, filling each about two thirds full.
Bake at 325°F 18 minutes, or until delicately browned.
Cool slightly; run a spatula gently around sides of cakes; lift out and set on wire racks to cool.
Cut a thin slice from bottom of each cake and carefully hollow out the cake.
Fill with sweetened whipped cream and replace cake slice.
Spoon Chocolate Glaze I over tops of cakes and allow glaze to set slightly before serving.
