Lemon Brownies

This is a good treat for someone that 
doesn't like chocolate.
I can't believe I just typed that sentence )
In a large bowl combine the sugar, flour
and salt. Add the softened butter.
tip:You can soften a stick if butter in the 
microwave for 25 seconds on 30% power
 Whisk the eggs in another bowl and add the lemon juice,
and zest.
Combine the two and beat until smooth.
I always use the butter wrapper to grease the pan.
Pour in the batter.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Mix the powdered sugar, lemon juice and zest.
 Spread on the cooled lemon brownies.
It will make a nice thin glaze.
Cut into squares.
These have a light yet dense texture, 
similar to brownies. I'll give them their own
new name......Lemonies!

Enjoy!
Lemon Brownies
3/4 C flour
3/4 C sugar
1/4 t salt
1 stick butter, soft
2 eggs
juice from 1/2 lemon (about 1T)
zest from 1/2 lemon (about 1t)
Combine the flour, sugar and salt
 in a large bowl.
 Mix in the softened butter.
In another bowl whisk the eggs with 
the lemon juice and zest.
Add to the larger bowl and mix well.
 Pour into prepared 8X8 brownie pan.
 Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
You can double the recipe and bake in a
 9X13 pan for 30 minutes.
Remove and let cool, then glaze.
Glaze
1/2C powdered sugar
1 T lemon juice
additional lemon zest
stir together
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
note: 1 stick of butter is = to 1/2 C or 1/4 pound.

  4. Hi Rita~ ~ ~
    You know I am one of those people who is not crazy about chocolate but I love lemon! Yeah! Thanks for this.
    I would rather have a Twizzler than a Hershey's Kiss.

  5. These look amazing! My parents belong to that weird group of chocolat ehaters, but they both love lemon, so this is a great recipe for family events. thanks!

  6. Oh, my those look good, but who in their right mind doesn't like chocolate! Thanks for sharing these at WOW.

  7. Bless you! I love chocolate, but since it gives me migraines I don't eat it anymore. Lemonish things - that's another story, thank goodness. :)

  8. Hard for me to imagine life without chocolate!! Even a chocoholic needs a break every now and then... Thanks for bringing these treats to Friday Potluck!

  9. I am not a chocolate fan, but I LOVE lemon! I made these today and I am sold. Love them!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh my goodness these are delicious! Thank you for sharing!! I have already eaten far too many slices and I only made them today!! I have shared your blog on my blog :)

  11. I'm so excited about these! One of my daughter's best friend's doesn't like chocolate-can't wait to make these for her :)

  12. @Mumzie I cut an 8x8 pan into 16 squares and they were 3 PointsPlus.

  13. I made these last night and they are delicious! Thank you!

  14. Just saw these on Pinterest, While I love chocolate, I do like a change every now and then and lemon runs a close second. can't wait to try these!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love chocolate but it's a safe bet that I'd love these too!

    ReplyDelete
  16. How have I missed this blog?!!! These look heavenly, with the lemon lovers in this house, I'm sure they will be a BIG hit! Cheers, Andrea

  17. Can you tell me how much I'd a stick of butter in ounces or grams?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Four ounces is one stick of butter

  18. I'm so excited to try this recipe. Due to a head injury, my taste has been distorted and chocolate no longer tastes good. And brownies were one of my brownie foods,so I will be making these soon. Thank You.

  19. I caught this recipe on pinterest... made it today. Ohmyeverlemonlovingbrownie, it is sooo yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  20. please let us overseas folk let us know the weight of a 'stick of butter? I'm dying to make these for my son's lunch (I'm sure I'll sneak a few too...they look devine!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried to reply by email, but you have it blocked.
    1 stick of butter is = to 1/2 C or 1/4 pound. Let me know how the recipe worked for you.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks so much for this recipe. Stumbled onto your blog by chance. This recipe was YummO for dinner. My kids are chocolate fans, but their Mama is not. This was just what I wanted. :) Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why do you call them brownies?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Because they have the same consistency and technique as chocolate brownies. It's the 'other' brownie. I should call them lemonies! Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  25. these look amazing! I just need to get a good egg replacer!

  27. I thought this would be a wonderful recipie to try for my sweets loving family. However you do not have a Print Recipe option. While the photos are very hepful for a new cook, anyone who has been around for a bit would most likely enjoy just being able to print the actual recipe. I will spend the time to copy it long hand however as a rule I will do this only once with any blogger. After that I delete them from my list of who to follow.

    1. You could always copy the recipe and paste it into a word processing program like Microsoft Word to print (takes two right clicks). Then you could even add your own notes and pictures, if you like. No print button is not a deal breaker in my book!

      Delete
    2. @Bonita,
      Your comment is unnecessary, if you have a print issue, that is your business, not ours. We luv Rita's blogs, they are a blessing.

      Delete
  28. I would love to add a print option, but haven't found one that works for me yet. I do put the concise recipe at the bottom so that it's easy to copy and paste to a blank 'compose email' and then print. That's what I do on so many recipe blogs. Still looking for a good and easy print button for my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The flavor of these were great! However, mine turned out more cake-like than brownie like. I don't know what I did wrong :-( I will attempt again though! Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  30. P.S. I like visuals so I think you set up the blog perfectly with having the recipe between the pictures and at the end. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the name "lemonies" :-)
    And your lemonies are amazing :-) Thanks :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's unfortunate someone feels the need to be obnoxious when other people are giving them free recipes. You don't have to be very computer savvy to copy and paste a recipe into a word document and hit print. In fact, I think that would take less time than bothering to write a rude comment. :-)

    These look delicious by the way. I'm one of those crazy people who doesn't like chocolate. We look forward to trying them. Love the name "lemonies!"

    ReplyDelete
  33. I found your recipe on Pinterest and had to try it. I LOVE lemon. Great flavor and I like the idea that it doesn't make a huge pan (the husband doesn't like lemon). They were terrific. I agree that they are a little more dense than cake, but not exactly brownie consistency. Just the right tang. Thanks for sharing! Kim

  34. Do you use all purpose flour or self rising... I can't wait to make these :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. If a recipe lists flour, it's always regular AP flour.
    Self-rising flour is always listed as such.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Will they still come out a good consistency if baked in a 9 x 9 instead of an 8 x 8?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hey there! Just came across this recipe on pinterest and it looks amazing, I can't wait to try it. I'm an overseas visitor though, so could you clarify what the abbreviations are in the recipe? What's a 'C' and a 't'? Also, when you say 3/4 C do you mean "3 or 4 Cs" or "3 fourths of a C"? Thanks a million :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. C is cup or 8 fluid ounces. A standard coffee cup in Europe is close enough for most recipes. 3/4 is 3 quarters of a cup. Small t is teaspoon or 5g. Capital T is tablespoon or 15g. A stick if butter is about 100g. Hope that helps!

  38. This absolutely has my mouth watering! I love lemons and brownies are my weakness. :) Can't wait to try these out!!

  39. I have made these several times and they're a hit with everyone. I love them. I also did a lime version tonight and a friend of mine did an orange one. They are all good! Thank you for a great and easy recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Found your recipe on pinterest today and had to make it! I loved it, the texture was very brownie like. Delish! I will definitely be making this again:) although next time I want to try a lemon cream cheese frosting on top:) thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. to say these are wonderful would be a complete understatement. Good thing I made them and took them to my moms birthday gathering, or I would have eaten the whole thing.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My daughter who doesn't like chocolate* will LOVE these! (*I know! We are thinking of having her tested! More for me!)

    ReplyDelete
  43. These sound incredible... thank you, Pinterest!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is the first recipe I've ever memorized... and I absolutely love it!! It's so easy and the best lemon brownie I've ever had! Ok, maybe it's the only lemon brownie I've ever had. But still! DELICIOUS! Don't alter a thing!

    ReplyDelete
  45. When I saw lemon brownies, I was interested. When I heard the "Theme from a Summer Place," I knew I would follow you! That is one of my all time favorite songs. Perfect fit for summer. And lemons. Can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  48. Hi There,
    My lemonies are in the oven but I have a novice baker question. I must admit I usually make brownies from a mix and have only baked cakes, cookies, and pies. My question is regarding baking powder/baking soda-I notice there is none in this recipe (and I didn't put any in) but I usually see it in baked good recipes so I was just wondering :-)
    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I made these last week and am ashamed to say that I ate the majority of the pan all by myself!! But they are so delicious, I had a hard time feeling bad about it. I doubled the recipe and made in the 13x9 pan. After pouring the glaze on the top, I slipped them into the refridgerator to set the glaze faster. I couldn't wait to eat one! They tasted to yummy chilled, that I left them in the fridge. I think i liked them like this better than I would have at room temp. My husband is a huge chocolate brownie lover, but said these were just as good. Thank you for the recipe! It is definately going in my favorites!

  52. Found this recipe through Pintrest, and as I'm a lemon freak I knew I had to try them. Easy recipe (although I did add a touch more lemon), smells amazing as they're being baked, and they taste GREAT! My husband said that they have the texture and taste of a 'lemon cruller' - this recipe is going in my "favourites" for sure. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Rita! I found your recipe on Pinterest. They look mouth watering. Question: do you use salted or non-salted butter? I plan on making these for Easter Sunday! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi! I just made these this morning for a family event tonight for my hubby's work and they are SO good! Even my 2 and 3 year old loved them. I used salted butter since it's all I had on hand and just didn't add extra salt. So light and refreshing! So glad I doubled the recipe so we could taste them early and still have some left to share. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh my! I just made a double batch of these. I don't think they'll last long - and I'm the only one home this weekend! I love their texture, as I'm a huge brownie fan. Glad to see someone else tried other citrus versions as I was wondering about using key lime juice.

    I used dried lemon zest from a jar and bottled juice and they were still amazing!

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm adding these to my dessert favorites. They're easy and very tasty! Will be trying them with key lime juice next time.

  57. Since finding your recipe on a friend's pinterest, I have made this recipe four times (since March 12th) with the fourth time being for Easter dinner. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  58. Love,love, love this recipe. Easy breezy and scrumptious. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe. Some feel a compulsion to keep good things a secret. Glad you know the beauty of sharing! Thank you! The music is awesome also.....enjoy it all the while I am baking! Mambo Italiano is now a staple...ha ha

  59. It's not that I don't love chocolate, I do. But I can't have it any more due to my milk allergies. This looks like a divine substitute!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I made these last night and they turned out alright. For some reason, they tasted a bit "flour-y." I am thinking I did not mix the ingredients well enough. Next time I will mix with my kitchen aid ;) other than that, they were pretty good and the glaze was amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  61. These sound great! My husband loves lemon and he loves brownies. I on the other hand generally do not like brownies! Strange I know, I dont like chocolate ice cream either! I dont know why but I cant say I dont like chocolate because I definately do like most chocolate! I will let you know how they come out! Thanks so much for sharing.

    ReplyDelete

  64. I really loved these, thanks for sharing the recipe. Mine turned out dense with chewy edges just like brownies and had a rich buttery lemon flavor. I love chocolate, but these are awesome too.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hello Rita! I just wanted to say I stumbled upon this recipe thanks to Pinterest, and I absolutely LOVE it! It's easily the best recipe I've found and made from Pinterest. My husband and I ate the whole pan in less than 24 hours - they were simply delicious. Thank you!

  67. I looked over the comments but may have missed what I was looking for. My question is plain or slef rising flour? My daughter emailed this reciped to me and I am excited about it and want to try ASAP

  68. It's always plain all purpose flour unless it says self-rising flour.

  72. Going to go zest my lemons!! I can't wait to taste....they look Devine!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. How do you think these would be with key lime juice instead of lemon? I have a bunch I need to use up. Then I could just zest some regular limes....ummmmm, may have to try it! Great looking recipe and blog!

    ReplyDelete
  74. AH-MAZING!! Used gluten free all purpose flour to make them GF friendly for my family, but fantastic recipe. We LOVED them!!

  75. My 7 year old son and I just made these to take out to my Mother and Father in-laws for an early Father's Day celebration. They were so simple to make! We can't wait to bite into them.

  81. I had these at my friends house on Sunday afternoon. she told me she had seen the recipe on pintrest, I could hardly wait to get home and pin this so I could make them again.... Omg they're good

    ReplyDelete
  82. I copied what I guess is your recipe from Backy Charms...warning there is a typo or change in the glaze yours calls for 1 tablespoon of lemon juice the other one calls for 4!!! That amount causes the brownie to be way too moist and gooey! Will have to try again with your proportions.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I made these for a family get together over the weekend for the first time and people were fighting to get a piece! LOL!

  85. First of all, I LOVE brownies & second of all, I am obsessed with anything lemon (so this was a dream come true). I also have been looking for something to bake that was a little less rich than lemon bars but still slightly similar & these we perfect!! I ALWAYS look at reviews before baking/making any recipes that I am not familiar with & this time, I let the pictures speak for themselves! I also was looking for something to bake that was relatively easy (after slaving over dinner all night). And boy, was I in for one of the best treats of my life...I just cooled & glazed them & took a bite of a slice & I honestly felt like Julia Child for a minute haha Anyway....they are better than ANY words could do them justice for. I'm so excited for my boyfriend to try them tomorrow, along with his co-workers...I expect a text or call around lunch time (or even possibly before!). Thank you, this is the best thing I've made off of Pinterest, it will be extremely hard to top!! I think I'll be baking them again tomorrow but this time, I'm doubling the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Thank you for this fabulous recipe! My son hates chocolate, but loves lemon, so I am always looking for new easy lemon recipes! These were wonderful. I omitted the glaze, as I thought they were sweet enough. Might try them with a lemon cream cheese frosting next time!

  97. Found your recipe on pinterest. Being a chocolate and lemon lover, copied the recipe for future trial.
    I own a Peony Farm in Sequim, WA. Now that the peonies blooming season is over, I am switching from being a Peony Lover to a Baking Angel (so my husband says). On the list is your "lemonies", then the chocolate cake. My diet is in danger!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I found these on Pinterest made them for my family. Instant hit!!! Now they are a regularly requested item. So fresh tasting and my "sour pusses" love them! Thanks for a great recipe and easy directions. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Can't wait to try these. Not a chocolate hater, just not suppose to have caffeine which is found in chocolate. And my husband doesn't care for lemon so if I make him regular and lemon for me he will leave mine alone when his are all gone

  100. I made these yesterday for my lemon-loving family. They were absolutely delicious! We are a bit on the picky side, so the praise does not come lightly - thank you for sharing the recipe, and I look forward to trying more!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Had these pinned for forever, finally baked them this afternoon. I don't know what I waited so long! SO SO SO delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I dont have a lemon...could i use lemon juice from the bottle and omit the zest?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Had to try these nummy looking brownies. But I think (actually I know) I made a mistake. First, I had to use the bottled lemon juice I already had on hand. I also had to use dehydrated lemon peel. (Did have any lemons.) I think it was a huge mistake. The brownies tasted bitter rather than sweet but lemony!

    I also sprayed the pan with Wilton's baking spray (made specifically for baked items) and the brownies stuck terribly bad. They broke apart completely.

    The bottom line is... I feel that if you follow the directions rather than veer off like I did, this is a fabulous recipe. I will try it again and use only the ingredients called for. But I think I will also line the pan with parchment paper.

    Thank you for sharing what looks like a very wonderful recipe!

  104. Loved the recipe. Also like the format. I figured out the cut and paste option. Here in AZ it is citrus harvest time. I plan on giving lots of samples with your lemon brownie recipe.

  106. Just made these for the 4 teens at my house...loved them!! We thought they needed more Lemon. Sooo in the icing I added 2 packets of Tru Lemon & that perked it up. Next time might even add Lemon pudding into the batter. Great alternative to regular brownies :-)

  107. Hi i just made them and they are delicious!! I'm keeping them for a day or 2 and was wondering if i should keep them in the fridge or room temp. Thank you in advance!!

  113. Made these tonight. The flavor is incredible, but these are not brownies, it is cake. The texture is that of a cake nothing like a brownie. Very good, but I'm disappointed in the fact that you call this cake a brownie.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I made these last night and we all loved them! Thank you SO much for a yummy recipe! Plus they were SOOOO easy. I can whip this up in a matter of minutes and I usually have lemons on hand.

    ReplyDelete
  115. WOW are these delicious!! I love lemon and these are an instant favorite! When I make brownies I usually slighltly undercook them so that they are nice and soft even after they've cooled (I don't like the crunchy edge pieces of brownies). However I found when I did that to these they were a little too undercooked for this type of batter. My mistake of course, not a mistake with the directions, but now I know and if anyone else usually makes brownies like that just be aware this should be baked through evenly like a cake. I found that these lemonies are in an interesting place where they are not quite brownies, not quite cake, but I might love them better than either! Thanks for a delicious and EASY recipe :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. These are wonderful, but try adding 3 oz. low fat cream cheese to the glaze...double yummy!

  117. These look amazing! My mother and father are part of that strange number of chocolat ehaters, but they both really like orange, so this is a fantastic formula to see relatives members activities. thanks!

  119. Lemon is one of my favorite things. When I first saw this recipe it was on another blog. The picture was deep yellow and they looked about 1and1/2 inches thick. Wellllll, I made them today and they are no where near that color or thickness. They were very pale and very thin. They actually look more like these on your blog. I was so disappointed in them. They had a thin gel like texture on the bottom and sort of packy. The recipe I used is exactly like this one. I don't know what could have gone wrong.

    I have been cooking 50 years so it isn't like I am just starting out. Wish I knew what happened.

  126. Yummy! Just made these and couldn't wait for them to cool. They are just like brownies... Can't wait to try orange and lime too. Thanks so much for your easy to follow recipe and the great tip about the butter wrapper. Never would of thought of that in a million years.

  127. If you are still reading comments, thank you for this recipe! I made them last night and they are very good. I doubled the recipe and cut them into 15 squares and am going to use them to sell at a lemonade stand, minus the 3 we ate. Yum!

  128. I know this is a late comment but I wanted to put in my two cents. These were delicious! I originally made an adapted version that I found on pinterest and wasn't as impressed. No need to adapt these bad boys!

    Thank you for the awesome recipe!

  129. I love these and so does my family. I have taken them to potluck dinners with friends and everyone seems to love them.. I wish they were thicker like some of the photos of this recipe I have seen.. I need to try to double the recipe in an 8x8 and adjust the cooking time... they are pretty thin made this way, but they are pretty rich so the thinness doesn't seem to matter that much. thank you for this yummy recipe!

  132. I made these for a church potluck today. They were well received and I will be making them again because they are delicious. If a person likes lemon, they need to try these. Thank you for a great recipe.
