Christine's Lemon Brownies

If you're wondering what to do with all the extra lemons in your backyard, Christine has shared her delicious lemon brownie recipe. Combining both the rind and the juice, it's sure to be a hit with the whole family.

Ingredients:

Brownie:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 250g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon rind
  • ¼ cup lemon juice

To serve:

  • Icing sugar or Greek yoghurt

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Beat flour, half of the sugar and butter together until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl whisk eggs, lemon juice, lemon rind and the remaining sugar together.
  • Then pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and beat on a medium speed until smooth (don’t panic if it looks curdled, it will come together with mixing).
  • Pour the mixture into a lined oven 20cm x 30cm tin.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and just firm to touch.
  • Allow to cool before removing from tin, serve with a dusting of icing sugar or Greek yoghurt and enjoy!

  • I can't wait to try it. First tasted it at a Auckland Home Show, but never saw the crowd who specialised in brownies again.

  • Could these be done GF?

    Jane

    • Hi Jane, yes, we think these could be adapted to be GF by using a gluten free flour.

  • Should the butter be melted? Or is it dry and crumbly in the flour mixture, like scones? Thanks.

    Juliette

    • Hi Juliette, not melted but just softened. When beating with the flour and sugar it comes together nicely as you beat. Happy cooking! ^Tui Team
