Makes 16 brownies


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 large or extra-large eggs
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar or granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Lemon glaze:

  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cold water if needed
  • lemon zest for sprinkling on top


  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Mist a nonstick 8 or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat with a handheld mixer or stand mixer, the softened butter with the sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time until well incorporated. Add the lemon juice and zest and mix just until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking soda. Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and beat at medium speed for about 1 to 2 minutes until nice and creamy.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 20-24 minutes. Try not to overbake. The edges will turn lightly golden brown. A toothpick should have moist crumbs. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes.
  5. While cooling, prepare the glaze and then spread over the brownies and sprinkle on the zest. Cut into 16 brownies and enjoy!
