There are no preparation pictures for this recipe because it’s just everything in one bowl so nothing very interesting or difficult to see. Don’t you just love an “all in one” bowl recipe? Just so simple and easy to clean up too.
So a bit different from the usual brownie recipe are these Lemon Brownies. You expect to have a light cake when you see them but they are brownies and brownies are more dense than traditional sponge cakes and these have a nice bite to them plus they have a great lemon kick!
This recipe is adapted from Hannah Mills who has been writing baking books for years and rarely fails to impress. It needs a stand mixer to get the creamy consistency that’s needed to create a lovely, light cake. It only takes about 10 mins to get the batter into the tin and oven ready so it’s quick and very tasty.
There’s no butter used which keeps it low fat and I’ve reduced the sugar quantity to help make these squares even better for you. As lime is generally sweeter than lemon, you can reduce the sugar without it impacting too much on the overall sweetness.
