I have debilitating sciatica problems. This usually results in me limping around the house, clutching onto furniture for support and exclaiming, “My hips!” dramatically.

I go to bed at the ripe night-owl time of 8:30pm.

And wake up nice and early at 6am.

(Okay, the last one mostly has to do with the fact that my tiny dog Jack tap-dances on my bladder until I wake up, but if he didn’t, I would probably wake up around the ripe ol’ time of 6:30.)

I like pudding.

I try to avoid exercising as much as possible. See ‘sciatica problems’ and screaming ‘my hips!’.

I would wear muumuus if I could find muumuus.

I’d prefer to stay in on a Friday and Saturday night watching my stories than go out on the town.

And that’s about it. I suppose the old woman who lives in my soul is pretty cool. I don’t mind her – I’m not about that partying lifestyle, and I’m really serious about the muumuus. Maybe that’s why I wear dresses every day – they mimic that muumuu comfort.

And unlike regular brownies, these bad boys have a thick and smooth lemon glaze on top which sends them over the top and outta this world.

Whether you’re a party animal, a night owl, an early bird or an old woman in a 25-year old’s body, you’ll love these!

These Glazed Fudgy Lemon Brownies are incredible! Soft, chewy, moist, fudgy and packed with fresh lemon flavor!
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of two lemons
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 & ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • FOR GLAZE:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 or 9x9" baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil liberally with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the butter and sugar until combined. Gradually add in the eggs and stir until just barely combined - do not over mix, as this will lead to tougher brownies. Lastly, stir in the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and flour until a soft batter forms.
  3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for approx. 22-25 minutes, no more than that, or until the top is set and lightly golden brown. Cool completely.
  4. Once cool, make your glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until a spreadable, pourable glaze is achieved. Pour over the bars and smooth out. Top with lemon zest. Let the glaze set, then cut into squares and serve.

  1. OK my mouth got all pucker-y just looking at these images. These look SO GOOD! Lemon or Lime desserts are some of my favorite!!

  2. These look amazing! I love a moist, dense lemon dessert. I usually make a pound cake, which are nice, but this looks like something I can get after! Thanks!

  3. haha I go to bed early too. Like if I’m not in bed by like 9pm I turn into a crazy zombie. For Real. mm I’m not about that partying lifestyle either, I feel like you’re my twin. These brownies are fantastic. Pinning them now! <3

  4. I’ve been all about lemon desserts lately! Can’t wait to give these a try!

  5. Brittany says:

    Do you think these would be good with white chocolate chips in them? Just curious, making them today for father’s day! 🙂

  6. Samantha A. says:

    Just made these lemon brownies, they’re fantastic, thank you for the recipe!

  7. I used this recipe for a group of teens haveing a night of baking challenge (kinda like food network) It was easy for them to follow and the finished product was amazing 🙂

  8. I made these last night. They turned out just like your pictures (which never happens) and tasted divine!!

  9. Desiree cappiello says:

    Made them today for Father’s Day huge hit… I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder so they were a bit mor like cake! Amazing !!! Im going to make them again and add blueberries 😜

  10. These are amazing! I doubled the recipe and baked in an 11×15 pan for a little over a half hour. Before I put them in the oven, I tossed some fresh blueberries on top and used a butter knife to sink them into the batter and smoothed the top. I also added half a vanilla bean’s worth of caviar to the glaze. These are a lemon lover’s paradise!
