My sister-in-law had her birthday a couple weeks ago, and I got volunteered to make three types of dessert — blondies, regular chocolate brownies, and lemon brownies. I had fun with it, and decided the best recipe was this one. I meant to take better pictures, but the guests were eager to eat, so…

Enjoy! (There’s a lot of sugar, so you probably will)

Decorating is honestly a lot of fun.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) soft butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 5 eggs*
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
Featured: the crowded table, complete with brownies, birthday lemon brownies, and blondies with a homemade caramel nest on top. Also some triple-vanilla ice cream that ended up melting badly.
  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar until combined, then add the lemon zest and lemon juice. Beat in the eggs one at a time until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the dry ingredients in slowly, but not overmixing.
  5. Pour the batter in a greased 9×13″ baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. When you stick a toothpick in, it should come out gummy, but not with batter on it. Don’t overbake, or it will be cakey.
  6. Allow to cool before adding any glaze. If you want a lemon glaze, mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tbsp lemon zest, and 3-4 tbsp lemon juice. Spread over the brownies.

*Honestly, you can use 4 eggs, just decrease the flour to 1 1/2 cups. I think the extra egg is nice, but I mean, hey, it’s another egg you won’t have for omelettes.

Thank you for reading! Have a wonderful day.
