I recently found a delicious recipe for 'lemony lemon brownies' on - where else - Pinterest! The ingredient list is super simple, and you probably have most of it on hand already!
- flour (3/4 cup)
- granulated sugar (3/4 cup)
- eggs (2)
- butter (1 stick)
- lemon zest (2 t)
- lemon juice (2 T, optional - another 2 T for a glaze)
- powdered sugar (1 cup)
Mix your sugar, flour and softened butter together using a stand mixer, if you have one. In a separate bowl, whisk together the juice, zest and eggs. And the liquid mixture to your dough and combine. Pour into a greased pan and bake at 350 for 23-25 minutes - that's it!
Once the 'brownies' are done, let them cool and mix up your glaze (if you like). Start with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and slowly add lemon juice until you've got the texture right. It's a lot of trial and error and adding more sugar, adding more juice, until you find that perfect balance!
I prefer to glaze individual servings, or you could cover the whole pan. Now you're ready to enjoy this sweet and tart dessert! The Lemon Zig Zag Recipe Card is perfect for sharing this with family and friends.
I'm definitely going to try this same recipe with orange juice and zest - and maybe if I'm daring...lime!
