The Most Lemony, Yummy, Melt in Your Mouth, Glazed Lemon Brownies EVER..

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, March 08, 2022

These are so rich, so decadent, the lemon equivalent of the fudgiest brownie you ever ate, they're just really yummy brownies, infused with lemon instead of chocolate.   Bake these in a pan no bigger than 8"or they will be too thin.  No 8" pan, no problem, just bake them in a loaf pan, and make that parchment paper saddle so you can lift them right out of the pan.  Oh my, every bite of these tart brownies is puckery deliciousness...


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Use No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda, just wanted to clarify that.  I know, it's odd, but you leave the soda and powder out of this recipe.
  • Tart Lemon Glaze:
  • 4 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 8 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar, gotta get those lumps out
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish with butter and set aside.
  3. Zest and juice two lemons and set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined.
  6. Pour it into the flour mixture and beat for 2 mins at medium speed until smooth and creamy.
  7. Pour into baking dish, making a saddle with parchment paper, sprayed with cooking spray so that you can lift them out of the pan and bake for 23-25 minutes. They should turn golden around the edges.
  8. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not overbake, or the bars will dry.
  9. Add the powdered sugar and whisk with lemon zest and juice.
  10. Spread the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula and let glaze set.
  11. Cut into bars and serve

World's Best Butterscotch Brownies

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, July 02, 2013




Moist, decadent, delicious brownies made with simple ingredients you have in your pantry.  These seriously are the best butterscotch brownies you will ever eat!  My daughter-in-law, Lindsay is a huge fan, this has been her signature recipe for a few years now.  They really are wonderful and so easy to make.  The recipe comes from a cookbook, POTLUCK AT MIDNIGHT FARM: Celebrating Food, Family, and Friends on Martha's Vineyard

 ~ Jan

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups (well-packed) light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and butter an 9x9" baking pan, or spray the pan with cooking spray, put in a parchment paper saddle, spray the saddle, and the cooked brownies are very easy to lift out of the pan.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and add the sugar. Combine well. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, mixing while adding.
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring while adding. When the wet and dry mixtures are well combined stir in the vanilla and the walnuts, if using.
  4. Scrape the batter into the pan. Bake the brownies for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the brownies cool for about 20 minutes before cutting. Serve them right out of the pan or arrange on a platter.
