I’m a chocolate fiend, but this time of year, I love to use fresh lemons in my baking. These Lemon Brownies have the texture of regular brownies but with a vibrant, tangy flavor.

If you haven’t made brownies from scratch before, it’s really easy! We usually make chocolate brownies, but this is just perfect for spring!

This recipe uses simple pantry baking ingredients, and you only need one fresh lemon.

Zest the lemon first, then use half of the zest for the brownie batter and half for the icing.

My family just loves these Tangy Lemon Brownies, and they’re quick enough to whip up for any occasion.
