Lemon Brownies are my new favorite dessert. Topped with a delicious lemon glaze, they are just the right mix of fresh lemon and sweetness.

This recipe is going to look a lot like your usual brownie recipe, but of course no cocoa or chocolate chips. You’ll mix together your dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately before combining making sure to add one egg at a time.

You’re going to adore this brownie recipe and all your friends will be begging for the recipe!
