I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out onLemon brownies AKA lemon blondies are super soft and moist bars topped with the most delicious glaze. The perfect refreshing dessert that you’ll be making over and over again!
These lemon brownies may be one of my favorite desserts ever! I love a rich and fudgy chocolate brownie or brown butter blondie, but there’s something about a lemon brownie that’s so light and fresh.
I have been loving ALL things lemon lately. There’s just something about citrus desserts that are so refreshing and delicious. And these lemon brownies did not disappoint!
They are moist and buttery, almost like sugar cookies, with just a hint of lemon. The powdered sugar glaze on top is tart and sweet, and makes a perfect compliment to the brownies without being overpowering.
I love how light they taste as well…not too rich or heavy. Trust me, they’ll be a hit!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
2/3 cup butter softened to room temperature
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Zest of two lemons
1/2 tsp salt
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Zest of one lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8×8 or 9×9″ baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil liberally with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the butter and sugar until combined. Gradually add in the eggs and stir until just barely combined – do not over mix, as this will lead to tougher brownies. Lastly, stir in the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and flour until a soft batter forms.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for approx. 22-25 minutes, no more than that, or until the top is set and lightly golden brown. Cool completely.
Once cool, make your glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until a spreadable, pourable glaze is achieved. Pour over the bars and smooth out. Top with lemon zest. Let the glaze set, then cut into squares and serve.
