16 brownies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan, or line it with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil.

  2. Whisk flour, sugar, lemon zest, salt, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Add butter, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla extract; stir until completely combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack until completely cool, about 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, mix confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest together for glaze in a bowl. Pour glaze over the brownies and leave at room temperature until glaze has hardened, about 20 minutes. Cut into 2-inch squares.
