How to Make Glazed Lemon Brownies
This is an easy recipe to make with a few simple ingredients. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix well. Add lemon juice and lemon zest. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake. Let the brownies cool before adding the glaze. In a separate bowl, combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Pour glaze on top of the brownies and allow to set up before cutting into bars.
Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions
- I highly suggest using fresh lemons in these brownies. I really think it makes a difference. You can use bottled juice, but, since you need lemon zest, why not just use fresh lemon juice.
- Line the baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil to easily remove the brownies from the pan.
- You can mix the brownie batter in a standing mixer or with a hand mixer.
- Feel free to add some white chocolate chips or blueberries to the batter. YUM!
- Don’t want to use the sweet glaze? You can serve the brownies with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
- How long do brownies last? Store cut brownie squares in an airtight container at room temperature; they’re best eaten within 1 to 2 days. The pan of uncut brownies wrapped in plastic will keep at room temperature for up to 4 days.
- Can brownies be frozen? Yes! Bake the brownies and cool completely. Do NOT add the glaze. Wrap the unglazed brownies in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to eat, thaw and add the glaze before cutting into squares.
