Lemony Lemon "Brownies"

These "brownies" are different but very good, with a nice tart lemony flavor. However, nothing can really beat a chocolate brownie but these are worth making. Very tasty and will be a go to recipe when I'm craving lemony treats. The link to the original recipe is listed below.

Lemony Lemon Brownies 


The "Brownie" Batter: 

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Tart Lemon Glaze: 

1 rounded cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoon lemon juice
8 teaspoons lemon zest

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Grease/Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter/cooking spray and set aside.
  • Zest and juice two small/large lemons; set aside. {whatever you have}
  • In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour into baking dish and bake for 23-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden around the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not over bake, or the bars will be dry.
  • When brownies are cooled completely, make the glaze...sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together all three ingredients. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula. Let glaze set. Spread the remaining glaze over the bars, and let it set. This glaze does not harden like most. Cut into bars, and serve!

  1. OMG...I made these and they were so good. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the recipe, especially with it being so easy. Mine happened to be muffin shaped due to me not being able to find a pan, so essentially, I had Lemon Brownie Muffins. Haha

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! I might have to try them out as muffins also.
