Lemon Brownies… Lemon What?!

 

 

I’d like to introduce you to someone; the most beautiful person on the face of this earth. She’s luscious, tart, but incredibly sweet. She’s the perfect balance of know-your-socks-off, but still-stay-stable dessert. Let’s just put it this way: she’s perfectly gorgeous. Introducing… Lemon Brownie!

Isn’t she a beauty?

I love her. She will change your life… forever. Either she becomes an insane addiction or you become ten pounds heavier, she’ll make your life a whole lot sweeter. Just beware; sometimes she just becomes too good and over takes your rational human intellect. You’ll find yourself saying some odd things with your mouth full of lemon-y goodness, such as: “Come to Mama!” or “I love you, Baby.” or “My Precious!”. Please use the Smeagol voice in the last one. Andy Serkis, where are you?!

LEMON BROWNIES

Tweaked From the Original Recipe: here

Ingredients:

1 c. butter, softened

1 1/2 c. white sugar

1 1/2 c. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

4 eggs

1/4 c. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. lemon extract (or 1/4 c. lemon zest, or other citrus fruit)

3/4 c. blueberries (optional)

Lemon Icing:

3 c. powdered sugar

1/8 tsp. salt

1/4 c. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. melted butter

How To Consume Properly:

1. Beat the butter with the sugar together until creamy and no clumps remain.

3. Beat the rest of the brownie ingredients together and fold in the blueberries gently if using.

4. Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are barely brown and when a toothpick inserted into the center come out clean.

5. While the brownies are baking, prepare the glaze. Mix all of the ingredients together until no clumps remain. If the icing still seems too thick, add one tablespoon of lemon juice at a time until you’ve reached your desired consistency.

6. When the brownies are done baking, pour half the icing on immediately after they come out of the oven. When they are cool, pour the rest of icing over the brownies.

VARIATION

Before pouring on the icing on the hot brownies, cut the brownies first and then pour on half the icing. Pour on the rest of the icing when cool. The icing will soak into the brownie slices’ cuts and result with a moister brownie. Feel free to add more icing if too much gets soaked in. Just don’t tell a soul.
