Lemon has always been my favorite dessert flavor. In addition, I’m lucky to have citrus – including a Meyer lemon tree – growing in my backyard. This is a good post-BBQ dessert made from ingredients that I always have on hand.Ingredients:

Brownies

    95 g all-purpose flour
    150 g white sugar
    115 g unsalted butter, softened
    3 g sea salt
    3 eggs
    30 ml lemon juice
    6 g lemon zest, plus more for icing

Icing

    125 g confectioners’ sugar
    60 ml lemon juice
    1 ml vanilla extract

Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

    Beat flour, white sugar, butter, and sea salt together in a bowl using an electric mixer until well mixed. Whisk eggs, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon lemon zest together in a separate bowl; mix into flour mixture and beat on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 23 to 25 minutes. Cool until bottom of dish is warm to the touch.

    Whisk confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, vanilla extract, and lemon zest (to taste) together in a bowl until smooth; spread over brownies.
