Delight your palate[#4]: Lemon [Kind Of] Brownies

I love sweets that have lemon, I really do. It was one of the best days of my life when I discoverer this on pinterest. Enjoy!

The "Brownie"
3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
3/4 cup granulated sugar 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup (120g) 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 overbake, or the bars will be dry. {even with the yummy glaze}

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!

EDIT: I only had 1/2 cup powdered sugar so I combined it with crystallized one[that's what made it sparckly in the pictures :D]


  1. That looks sooo good! I love lemon too!! Well, the flavor and smell only, not how sour it is.

  2. Yhea, I couldn't it it as I eat oranges for example, but everything else rocks :D
