Lemon Brownies

This is one of the most intense lemon desserts I have ever tried.  If you love lemon don't make these if you are home alone you won't be able to stop eating them till they are gone.  They are so quick and easy.

* After making this again I felt it was to flat in fact wonder if somewhere along the line something was omitted so I added 1/4 tsp baking soda to get a little more cake texture and a thicker brownie it didn't add a lot of height but still maintained that intense lemon flavor.

Lemon Brownies


3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 T lemon zest
2 T lemon juice
* 1/4 tsp baking soda

1 c powdered sugar
4 T lemon juice
8 tsp lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350°F butter and flour 8 x 8 pan ( I used 9 in round cake pan)

Zest and juice lemons.

In mixer bowl mix flour, sugar, salt and butter till combined.  *(baking soda added here if using)

Whisk eggs, lemon juice & zest add to mixer bowl beat till smooth & creamy about 2 minutes.

Pour into baking dish bake 23- 25 minutes or till edges begin to brown or toothpick comes out clean.  Do not over bake.

Spread into pan.

When brownies are cooled completely whisk the glaze ingredients together and spread over brownies let set.  Glaze will not harden.  Cut and serve.
