Lemon Brownies AKA Lemon Blondies – Super Soft And Moist Bars Topped With The Most Delicious Lemon Glaze. The Perfect Summer Dessert That You’ll Be Making Over And Over Again!
I have been loving ALL things lemon lately. There’s something about lemon desserts in the Summer that are so refreshing and delicious. And these lemon brownies did not disappoint! The lemon blondies are moist and buttery, almost like sugar cookies, with just a hint of lemon. The lemon glaze on top is tart and sweet, and makes a perfect complement to the brownies without being overpowering. I love how light they taste as well… they’re the perfect lemon dessert for Summer!
Lemon brownies AKA lemon blondies - Super soft and moist bars topped with the most delicious lemon glaze. The perfect summer dessert that you'll be making over and over again!
FOR THE LEMON BROWNIES:
1/2 cup salted butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
zest of 1/2 lemon
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
FOR THE GLAZE:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
zest of 1/2 lemon
Preheat the oven to 350. Prepare an 8 x 8 pan by spraying with cooking spray or lining with foil, and set aside.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then add the lemon juice. Add the flour and baking powder, and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out clean. Let lemon brownies cool for 10-15 minutes.
To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest, then pour over the brownies, spreading evenly to coat. Let lemon blondies cool completely before slicing and serving.
Note: If using unsalted butter, make sure to add a pinch of salt to the batter.
