Sometimes you stumble upon recipes that you just can’t ignore and this is one of those!
I have always liked lemon and maybe that was why I couldn’t help but share this with you…
These ”brownies” have a bright, tart, and fresh lemon flavor. Also, they’re topped with a delicious lemon glaze, they are just the right mix of fresh lemon and sweetness.
It’s a perfect dessert in any season, but particularly refreshing in spring or summer!
How to make Lemon Brownies
First of all, this recipe is going to look a lot like your usual brownie recipe. But of course it does not contain cocoa or chocolate chips.
All you have to do is to mix together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Before combining making sure to add one egg at a time.
