This isn't the recipe's fault, but BEWARE of the self-rising flour issue. I used standard flour, and as there's no rising agent (soda, b.powder), I had flat, dense cupcakes. Excellent flavor, but not fluffy and light like a cupcake should be. Beginner error, but if you're in a hurry and don't pay attention, the cupcakes won't turn out.
Also, the lemon zest caramelized inside the cupcakes and became chewy- not what you really want, either. I'm guessing had the cupcakes puffed up like they should have, the lemon zest would have also been OK, too.
