VWAV Lemon Gem Cupcakes

I made a batch of these (which made 18 cupcakes rather than the 12 the recipe said it made, to my surprise) last night to appease the housemates who were complaining at their not being allowed to eat the two x-large pizza boxes full of rosewater cupcakes I made for an event.

I must say, they came out nice and moist, but without a lot of lemon flavor. If I didn't know they were supposed to be lemon, I'd never have guessed it. I followed the recipe, and even added some extra ground lemon peel to the mix. I'd like to get more lemony tartness, rather than lemony sweetness, if possible. I thought about lemon extract in place of the vanilla extract, but fear that'll just make lemony sweet. Maybe mix in some lemon pulp? Anyone else have this problem with these cupcakes?
