Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Butter 16 muffin cups or line with paper cases.
Beat the butter and caster sugar together until pale in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs one by one, fully incorporating each one before adding the next. Stir in the lemon zest and flour. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
Serve these little lemon cakes with whipped cream, a dusting of icing sugar, raspberry coulis or mascarpone whipped with lemon curd.
