Southern Triple Lemon Brownies

I know… I know….. How can you call this a “brownie”? There’s NO chocolate & no fudgy cake! I know this isn’t your typical brownie, I’m calling this your Summer Brownie because it has the same texture, yet it’s more light & fluffy.

Lemon cake is huge in the south, but what if you want something a little more…fudgy…without the fudge? These lemon glazed lemon brownies are the answer! It’s somewhere between a cake and a brownie. They are sweet and tangy. You can either go heavy on the lemon or as light as your prefer.

After you make the glaze & pour it over the brownies, it needs to sit and firm up before slicing into them. After I spread the glaze, I like to add more zing by sprinkling more lemon zest. Adding fruit such as raspberries or blueberries that pairs very well with lemon can add some decadence. Believe me, you will enjoy these summer brownies.
