These Lemon Brownies have such a gooey texture. They are the perfect dessert for lemon lovers! You’ll need lemon sugar first, so to make it, simply add the lemon zest to the granulated sugar in a bowl, and rub the sugar and zest together between your fingers to help release the citrus oils from the zest.

Then mix the white chocolate with the butter, and melt in the microwave for 15 second intervals, whisking until completely melted. Add the lemon sugar to the bowl.

After whisking the sugar with the melted butter and white chocolate, add the eggs and whisk again. Add the lemon juice and mix. Next, add the flour and salt.

Once the batter is ready, pour it into the baking pan, and bake it for about 35 minutes. We aren’t adding any leavening agents such as baking powder or baking soda, because we are going for gooey brownies with that very characteristic fudginess.

To make the glaze, simply whisk the powdered sugar and a couple tablespoons lemon juice together. Start by adding just one tablespoon, and add more as needed to thin out the consistency of the glaze. Pour the glaze over the cooled down brownies. You can add the zest to the glaze.

The glaze is sweet, tart, and will perfectly compliment the rich brownies. Let the glaze set for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
