Lemon Brownies

A brownie recipe is usually packed full of chocolate but not this one. It is Lemon all the way. Of course, I had to try it. I came across this recipe last year. I found it on pinterst but I cannot remember the link. If I really like a recipe, I will type it up and save it to my computer. Also, a printed version will go into my recipe binder. This one was one of those.

These are really good. I will substitute the lemon for oranges next time I make this; just to see how it would taste. The cake part is not very sweet and the glaze is too sweet. Together it is a perfect balance.

*Recipe below are amounts for 8×8 pan. The ingredients can be doubled for a 9×13 pan.
